Cooking for One

Publications > Cooking for One

​Cooking for one is often the reality for many older people. So we have developed this recipe booklet especially for senior vegetarians and vegans who cook for themselves. Most of these ‘no-fuss’ recipes are easy to make. As well as recipes, we’ve included a sample menu planner, and a section on ingredients that might be unfamiliar to some readers. There’s also a refresher on nutrition, a guide to useful equipment, and some useful resources, including details of our grants scheme.

Cooking for One

Cooking for one is often the reality for many older people. So we have developed this recipe booklet especially for senior vegetarians who cook for themselves.

Most of these ‘no-fuss’ recipes are easy to make. The ingredient quantities are mostly for one or two servings. But it’s easy to double the quantities if you
are cooking for more people.

And of course there is no need to restrict yourself to ‘recipes for one’. Many recipes can be adapted by reducing quantities in the correct proportions.
Plus sensible use of the fridge and freezer usually means that you can avoid waste.

Primary Audience

​This publication is aimed at senior vegetarians and vegans or those who cater for them.
