Need a vegetarian recipe to wow a crowd
Any ideas? Thanks!
Back when I could eat mushrooms I used to make a dish consisting of lots of wild and cultivated mushrooms cooked for a long time in butter, red wine and a full-flavoured veg stock; cooked down till just moist - served in a puff-pastry split. Very easy, simple and a rich enough taste to please even meat lovers. All you need is a (garlic) bread and a green salad and maybe a cheese-course to follow.
You could bake the pastry ahead of time and assemble at the last minute.
Asparagus flan with fontina cheese sauce
Linguine con porcini
Eggplant towers with garlic skordalia
Brie en croute
Daal makhani with garlic naan
Gourmet's March issue (I think) had a vegetarian cassulet that looked really delicious and would be easy to serve a crowd, but still be pretty special.
