I'm smitten with a girl and would like to take her on a picnic.
Her: Somewhere between vegetarian and vegan (recovering hippie), prefers no wheat.
Me: Lactose intolerant, can't do strong vinegar (vinaigrettes, mustard etc).
I'd like to take her on a picnic, and was thinking of doing some veggie dishes.
I'd really like to experiment with vegetable pates. Does anyone have any recommendations for what to do and which recipes? I'm trying to choose one for mushroom pate now, but could use recommendations on that front, and suggestions for other veggies to try.
I'm also thinking of a chilled asparagus soup since I have two pounds that need to go, and perhaps a mild remoulade of some sort.
Any recipes or inspirations would be much appreciated. She's awesome!
