Vegan Wedding Food
Hi Sassy!*****Sassy Sez:
I am looking for ideas for Vegan wedding food. I am planning my wedding (set for early September, 2011)and am wondering if you know of any great, carnivore-pleasing, recipes that are super easy to make and can feed a boat-load of people.
I've been vegan for about a year and would hate to "break" my veganism on my wedding day but both mine and my fiance's families are very much used to the traditional American diet.
I am also on a very tight budget so I was planning on serving small "bites" and letting my guests know to eat their evening meal before-hand. These need to be pretty simple recipes; the family will be doing the cooking.
Hi Amy! Wow, congratulations on your upcoming wedding. I am so happy for you both.
You have QUITE the tall order, m'dear. All vegan (yes!!), short on funds, small bites, easy recipes, AND your family and friends are making the food. That is a lot to take on, but I have no doubt you guys can pull it off. ;)
Since I have never catered a wedding, I went "in search of" for a few ideas that I could toss your way...
*Seitan and veggie skewers (with plum sauce)
*Sweet potato spread and plum tomato crostini with balsamic drizzle
*Fresh fruit skewers
*Spring rolls with soy-ginger dipping sauce
*Stuffed grape leaves (you can certainly buy these)

*Vegan Lettuce Wraps
*Falafel w soy yogurt Tzatziki sauce
*Butternut Squash Soup Shooters (I LOVE this idea; the soup is served in small demitasse cups. Cute!!!)
*A Bruschetta Station

Wish I could have been more help. I'm going to open this question up to your fellow VeganCoach.com visitors to see what they come up with. So if anyone is reading this has some ideas, please do share!
Again, congratulations to you both, Amy! xo
