I'm preparing for my annual holiday party, a drinks, hors d'oeurves and sweets sort of affair. My boss was asking hopefully whether there would be a lot of vegetable dishes. Hhhhmmmmmmm....there will be lots of olives and cornichons etc, and I was thinking of doing a roasted eggplant and/or roasted pepper dip, but I find crudites kind of depressing--so few people eat them, and in my opinion raw veggies often just don't taste very good (and I don't like creamy white dip). But obviously, I aim to please!
Any ideas for festive and creative vegetable-intensive party dishes, preferably ones that can be made a day or two in advance? They don't have to be vegan or even strictly vegetarian.
Many thanks in advance!
