Ideas for Vegan diners

Written by Linda Wilkinson

If you’re hosting a dinner party and you have a vegan guest, how about making it easier with a vegan starter and dessert which every guest will enjoy! There is a huge selection of recipes on this link for some ideas. 

Providing one or two vegan courses is more than just considering your guest’s preference, it will quietly show your guest that you have respect for their beliefs and also they won’t feel like it’s been an ordeal or problem catering for them.

Tofu is made from soybeans and is high in protein and calcium. There are other less known soya products such as Tempeh, Seitan and TVP.

Vegetables are a fabulous alternative when flavoured well, e.g. mushrooms, jackfruit, eggplant, beans, cauliflower to name a few.

Interestingly, Quorn is a brand rather than a food type and uses a range of meat alternatives to create a variety of tasty meals.

If your favourite dessert is a milk-based creation, you can use soya milk instead of dairy!

Whilst looking for information on meat alternatives, we stumbled across a fabulous article by One Green Planet (click here).
