A plant-based and show-stopping menu is simply fabulous when either presented as a formal dinner or a casual open house buffet. Beautiful and delectable, this vegetarian fare includes vegan recipes and we’ll discuss options on how to adapt each, plus make-ahead notes to keep prep easy. We need to get the cooking done, then get right to the entertaining. From soups to nuts - this menu has it covered.
Trio of Hors D’oeuvres:
Crisp, Sesame Sweet Potato Wedges with Zesty Peanut Dipping Sauce
Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms with Pesto Topped with Garlic-Scented Panko
Roasted Butternut Squash and Cranberry Sauce Filled Samosas
Creamy Roasted Chestnut and Butternut Squash Soup with Smoky Red Pepper Swirl
This soup is a lovely starter that can be served as “shots” or in traditional soup bowls.
Salad of Baby Greens, Radicchio and Golden Crisp Carrots This cool and crisp salad is dressed with a Roasted Shallot Vinaigrette and sprinkled with Candied Pumpkin Seeds.
Individual Vegetable and Nut Loaves
Our main course is equally elegant and casual. You’ll prepare this lovely make-ahead dish in a large muffin pan, then top with it with Glazed Carrot Strips and BBQ Sauce or finish it with Creamy Vegan Mashed Potatoes.
Creamy Vegan Chocolate Mousse topped with Whipped Cream and Candied Pecans
Chocolate mousse is an easy dessert that your guests won’t be able to resist
