Let’s say you are having a dinner party, but you are a vegetarian and you aren’t sure what you want to include on your menu that will make everyone happy. Well, the truth is that you most likely won’t always be able to please everyone. However, you can make a great vegetarian menu that most of your guests will love and they may not even know that they are eating a totally vegetarian meal.
What should you include on your vegetarian menu? You should have a variety of foods that can be satisfying to a variety of people, but that doesn’t scream “VEGETARIAN”. Why is that? Well, even if your guests don’t know that you are a vegetarian, they should not face your dinner party with fear that they will have bland, tasteless food. Impress them and show them that meatless meals can be fun, beautiful, and delicious!
Here are a couple of suggestions for a vegetarian dinner party menu:
Small Dinner Salad
Fresh Asparagus Soup
“Fried” Brown Rice
You could also try this vegetarian menu:
Easy Tomato Soup
Fresh Tomatoes with Mozzarella and Basil
Another terrific vegetarian menu can circle around a Mexican theme:
Spicy Tortilla Soup
Refried Beans with Spicy Salsa Topping
Coming up with a vegetarian menu that will support your lifestyle but also please your dinner guests isn’t really difficult if you think about it. Just keep in mind what you like to eat and what you are good at cooking. Then make a menu that includes the following courses:
It’s really that simple. Most menus include all of these components, and just because you want to make a vegetarian menu doesn’t mean you have to give up taste and presentation. If you present your meals with flair and prepare them with love, you will find that having a vegetarian dinner party with a menu that appeals to everyone attending is not as difficult as you might think.
Just sit down and think about what you are able to cook well and that your family enjoys. Chances are good that if your family enjoys the vegetarian menus that you present to them daily, your dinner guests will enjoy it as well. Be creative, be innovative, and be confident that your menu will please both your vegetarian friends as well as your meat eating friends as well.
