I enjoyed looking at the veggie appetizer entry, but it seems that more and more the term vegetarian is used to mean vegan. Many of the items had cheese or eggs in them and one was even pictured with ham on the plate. I think someone is missing something. Could Chow not come up with a list of all-veggie items? I have no objections to cheesy dips, but would welcome more and more totally veggie ideas.
Fried potatoes with romesco sauce
Crostini with zucchini butter(you can use a substitute) and an oven dried tomato
Crostini with beet hummus and roasted pistachios
Hollowed out cucumber stuffed with hummus
Caponata stuffed baby potato
Olive, cucumber and onion Stuffed cherry tomatoes ( a riff on a Greek salad minus feta but always better with feta)
