Impressive Vegetarian Entree?
Any thoughts on a beautiful and delicious vegetarian entree that would be suitable for entertaining?
What do you mean by elegant? How many people do you plan to host?
Would a mushroom wellington do?
Perhaps individual pot pies?
Stuffed baked acorn squash?
Two particular things I've made -
Butternut squash lasagna or cannelloni - let me know if you want the recipe - it's really rich and decadent and yummy
Quinoa and goat cheese stuffed veggies (I used med. sized patty pan squash) - there isn't much of a recipe - but let me know... I'll put it together as much as possible. I was surprised that even the meat eaters gobbled these up.
After writing this out - I realize that it's probably not much help because I can't remember the flavor much beyond the quinoa and cumin - because I don't like cheese - so someone else was doing most of the tasting! - so sorry!
Ok, Let's see what I can remember -
The squash were medium sized - carved a hole out of the top and hollowed them out a bit - left most of the flesh though - keep the tops and the stuff you carved out
Make quinoa - make sure it's slightly (only a little) underdone -
squash (from the inside of the ones you carved out)
Any other veg you like.
maybe some toasted pine nuts too...
Mix with cumin, coriander, cayenne, salt & pepper to taste - I might have added a little cinnamon too -
Miix with goat cheese - actually, this might have been feta...
Salt and pepper the inside of the squash
pack the quinoa into the squash - drizzle with oil or rub with oil prior to stuffing - place the squash top on the squash - place all in a roasting pan and roast for about 30 minutes.
