Need a vegan tea party sandwich for a crowd
I'm doing a tea for 170 people (high school seniors and family members). It's a school tradition, so it has to be nice. My menu was set, but I found out that a few families are vegan, and I only had two vegan items. Someone is ordering vegan pastries, but I need a savory sandwich.
It needs to be a finger sandwich, not too messy, and nut-free. All food is plated and placed on tiered plate holders on each table.
The menu items, including the non-vegan things, are:
Fruit skewers (back by request)
Arugula, hummus and carrot pinwheels
Cucumber, dill and cream cheese triangles
Curried chicken salad sandwiches
Whatever vegan pastries the volunteer brings
Nick's Supernatural brownies
Phyllo tarts with lemon curd and mini-meringues
Scones with jam and clotted cream
You've got hummus covered so I'm thinking something with an olive tapenade (no anchovy!) would be a nice change of pace for vegans. Maybe tapenade/cucumber or tapenade/roasted red pepper slice. You could also do the cucumber/dill/cream cheese one with a vegan cream cheese (easy to find now). Just make sure to differentiate between the two...a different shape or type of bread.
Or...a mock tuna (tofu) salad. I make a fake chicken salad with gardein chik'n scallopini and it would totally work with curry.
