Help! Vegan baby shower luncheon!
I am a non-vegan who is throwing a laid back baby shower for a vegan friend. In addition to conscious sourced table settings and locally grown flowers, I am wondering about my menu. Does this sound good to you?
Hummus, olive tapenade, taboutlah dips with pita chips
Baby green salad with roasted beets and candied walnuts
Fruit salad bowl
Mushroom caviar with baguette chips
Walnut, cranberry, raisin artesian bread
Endive stuffed with apple pie filling
Rosemary and Sea Salt Scones
Pizza strips with caramelized onions
Give me your thoughts! Thanks!
Not a vegan (or even a vegetarian) but that sounds good! If that's "laid-back", I would love to see what you do when you're going all-out.
What about serving the roasted vegetables room temp on couscous?
Do you have some sort of spread for the walnut bread?
Would you share that vegan scone recipe? Thanks!
Everything sounds delicious, can I come? :)
I would probably skip the veggie wraps (boring, get soggy, and you have all the possible good fillings as salads/sides already).
It might be nice to have a lentil or bean salad for some filling protein if this is intended to be a lunch affair. If it is just nibbles, you have more than covered it.
I really like puy lentils dressed in a mustardy, garlicky vinaigrette tossed with roasted delicata slices and arugula.
Chickpeas with spanish flavors (capers, roasted red peppers, lemon, olive oil) are also a great choice.
maybe i have a skewed view because several folks in my circles are allergic to walnuts, but i'd make the salad with another, different, tree nut (pecans maybe).
