Your friends have succeeded in making you feel bad because you didn’t do Dry January. Or Vegan January. Or put any effort at all into becoming a better, healthier version of yourself January. Yep, you suck at adulting. So what do you do to fix it? You go veggie for Lent. Sigh.
You got this. We believe you can survive these forty days of endurance. And to help you, we’ve come up with perfectly decent dishes you can pair with our wines – even if you’re taking a holiday from carnivore living. Because your Most Wanted Wines are veggie, too.
Cheesy broccoli wheat pasta bake + Sauvignon Blanc
Can’t be bothered to cook for hours? This healthy winter dish is ready in 30 minutes and is made of only healthy carbs, hot greens and the proof that God exists, cheese.
The pasta bake marries perfectly with the Most Wanted Wines Sauvignon Blanc, a light, crisp wine that balances the creaminess of the cheese like no other. Pour yourself a glass and your Lent will feel more like a treat than like an endurance on a cold weekend night.

Forget the cold English winter and bring your taste buds to Latin America with a food pairing to spice up your life. Sweet potatoes are loaded with the antioxidant beta-carotene, which keeps vision sharp and helps fight off a cold.
Apart from being less boring than average potatoes, sweet potatoes love a smooth Malbec, the perfect wine to enhance their smokiness. So there you go: who needs red meat when you’ve got a spicy, Latin American pairing under 500 calories?

Chana Saag + Albariño
For the vegans among you, this spicy curried chickpeas and spinach dish will make you forget that you aren’t eating meat. Say what? Indian food with white wine? Yep, you read us just right.
Sure, Indian food tastes great with the traditional yoghurt drink lassi, but it’s a crisp, fresh Most Wanted Albariño that will stand up to just about any spicy Indian dish.
