I'm not normally a vegan, but my hubby and I are eating vegan food for a week as both a health experiment, and to make for something a bit different on my blog.
I'm finishing off this week with a vegan dinner party, and I'm in search of some yummy ideas (particularly for dessert) that don't involve to many whacked out processed soy products (I'm discovering that I love food in its natural state but really fake "meats" "cheeses" and "milk" really really really don't do it for me.
So, this is kinda what I have had in mind...
Appies - Garlic and Herb Brazil Nut "Cheese" (from 2007 Jan Vegetarian Times - looks really tasty)
Tofu Scallion Rolls (also from 2007 Jan Vegetarian Times)
Salad - I thought I would do a pretty traditional salad with vinaigrette dressing, but add maybe craisins and walnuts for interest
Soup - not sure if it's a necessity....this is not really a vegan challenge at all, as it just involves using vegan bouillon instead of chicken.
Main - I'm torn here. I don't know if I should do just one entrée (like vegan stuffed peppers) or if I should try to do three or four and do it buffet style. Keeping in mind this is a dinner for only six people and they are all women (i.e., don't necessarily eat that much). I'm not sure what I want to make. Ideas?
Dessert - I am having one heck of a time finding a yummy vegan dessert. The best I've come up with on my own is something like an apple crisp, but with margarine (blah). I also was wondering if there might be like a sweet crust wild blueberry tart that could be made dairy/egg free and still actually taste good.
