Your favourite veggie/vegan dish to serve friends
June 25, 2008 07:44AM
I'm always curious as to what other people make for their friends if they're coming round for dinner. My last meal I dished up to some friends was mini baked potato skins stuffed with halloumi and sweetcorn for a starter, a fantastic "Cosmic Curry" from my ayurvedic cookbook and a rather strange tofu ice cream dessert.

So - what do you serve up to friends if they come for dinner? And would it make a difference if those friends were carnivores? ie - would you be less adventurous because they would already be thinking that having vegetarian food would be "weird" for them. Or would you never have a carnivore as a friend?!!!

Hello.

My friends are very open minded and they love it when we cook something unusual. I would never be less adventurous.

Last time we made Indian chickpea salad. For another friend minted spring veg with cous-cous.

I love cooking fresh, its just soooo tasty!

If i cook for my friends at my place the rule then it will be vegan and they are all great with that.

I may start with some crudities with fresh made dips (Hummous, Tahini, pate etc)


Main course maybe a chickpea and sweet potato curry with rice, or a pasta witha tomato and mixed mushroom sauce served with salad.

desert would be Apple pie with cream or pear and apricot flambe in a reduced wine sauce.

I also like to cook as fresh as possible.

I'm guessing that's soya cream with your apple pie then!! winking smiley

What vegan wine do you cook with? I'm guessing that's white wine reduction for the dessert. Sounds scrummy!

Yea, i use soya cream and also white wine i get from the co-op as they mark their wines thatare either suitable for vegetarians of vegans which is a big help.
