Videhi Sivurusan is a:

  • Multiple Award Cook-Off Winner
  • Vegetarian recipe columnist
  • Vegetarian recipe developer
  • Food blogger
  • Special Feature;  guest vegetarian chef on Lotus FM (Life n Style)

How it all started…I found that vegetarians are always side lined and under catered for.  The lack of or should I say the disinterest some people take into preparing vegetarian food is totally evident in the meals they put out there.   Over the years I have learnt that the disinterest also stems from that lack of varieties or awareness of vegetarian food.  Hence my purpose and mission was born.

I am a vegetarian for 19 years and for the past 15 years I have been actively promoting vegetarian food by providing vegetarian options to people who would like to have a veggie meal.  (Note I am not trying to convert people to vegetarianism – I am merely providing a veggie option:-)  I have the ability to convince the most discerning palates to enjoy my vegetarian meals.

My passion for food and my style of cooking has led me to the winning podium in many competitions, gaining the title of the Curry Queen, The Meat Free Marvel Winner and S.A’s Savvy Vegetarian I find that this is a wonderful platform to show case my talent as well as getting the spotlight to shine on my vegetarian dishes.

Currently I contribute veg recipes to a few publications locally.   I struggle to get people to sponsor my pages as they don’t want to come across as “vegetarian” in a predominantly meat market like South Africa, some have said to me.  Nevertheless I will continue on my journey.

I cook to inspire and be inspired….Welcome to Videhi’s Veggietable 🙂

This site is also dedicated to everyone who wishes to include a veggie meal into their lifestyles.    “Videhi Making Veggie Days Happy Days”
