The Hairy Dieters Go Veggie

80 delicious vegetarian recipes to make losing weight and eating less meat even easier.

In their multi-million selling Hairy Dieters series, the Bikers proved that you can eat your favourite foods and still lose weight.

We know this latest book will come as a big surprise to you. You’re used to us as lads who love our meat, and for years we’ve been busy sharing our recipes for chicken pies, lamb curries and meaty casseroles.

We still love all that – it’s part of who we are – but we also know that if you ignore the veggies you’re missing out big time. As cooks, we’ve always appreciated our veg and they’re a hugely important part of our cooking. And lately, without really thinking about it, we’ve been eating less meat. We’re not giving it up altogether, but the more we learn about cooking great food, the more we enjoy making use of all the amazing produce that’s on offer and creating dishes where vegetables, pulses and other plant foods are the stars of the show. This also fits well with our desire to keep eating healthily and maintain our weight loss.

Si & Dave

Jam-packed full of delicious, low-cal versions of traditional classics and family favourites, they have taken the deprivation out of dieting and helped millions shift the pounds.

They show that going vegetarian can be just as easy as going low-cal. Whether you want to cut out meat entirely, cut down, or just incorporate some more meat-free dishes into your diet, the book is full of simple and easy-to-follow recipes for tasty veggie meals and snacks, from Lancashire Hot Pot to Veggie Sausages.

Hello Si and Dave, I am not the most confident hostess and I recently entertained some friends who are keen cooks and vegetarians and also like to eat healthily.
I decided to serve them the mushroom bourguignon accompanied by the potato and celeriac dauphinoise from the Hairy dieters go veggie book and it was an absolute, total success! Compliments from the first mouthful and second helpings all around.
So thank you both for wonderful, easy-to-follow recipes that satisfy and impress and I now have a renewed enthusiasm for entertaining.
With very best wishes to you both,

Rosie Smith, consumer 14.1.2023

Non-meat eaters will be delighted to know that loveable duo The Hairy Bikers have added a vegetarian title to their Hairy Dieters cookbook series. Within its pages are 80 incredibly versatile recipes, including Vegetarian Lancashire Hotpot, Proper Chilli and Mushroom Bourguignon. This is bound to be a bestseller.


Famous for their love of meat, motorbikes, and 'man food', the Hairy Bikers are unlikely advocates of a vegetarian lifestyle. But, having shed more than six stone between them by concocting quick and easy dishes that were also low in calories, the pair have now cooked up a book of meat-free recipes. For the fifth volume of their multi-million-selling Hairy Dieters series, Si King and Dave Myers hope to show that going vegetarian can be just as easy as going low-cal, and needn't mean missing out on the foods you love.

Mail on Sunday

The much-loved British food heroes, The Hairy Bikers, return with yet another dieting book, this time packed full of simple but tasty vegetarian meals which prove that incorporating more plant-based dishes into your diet needn't be difficult or bland. You'll fall in love with their cheeky, down-to-earth humour and their healthier takes on popular British classics such as Lancashire hot pot, pasties, and toad in the hole. Meanwhile, those with more exotic palates are bound to enjoy the Latin American shepherd's pie or paneer and pea curry.

The Independent

SI King and Dave Myers, aka TV's culinary double-act The Hairy Bikers, are a refreshing alternative to today's earnest food bloggers. Their blend of cheeky humour and no-nonsense great cooking has won them millions of fans. Their latest book, The Hairy Dieters Go Veggie, takes the sacrificial out of slimming, showing that you can lose weight with food you enjoy. You'd think the Sunday-roast-loving authors would be unlikely candidates to go veggie; you'll be surprised. In their quest for better health, they are eating less meat. So they bring us recipes where 'vegetables, pulses and other plant foods are the star of the show'. -- Juanita Coulson ― THE LADY
