Polenta Bar Dinner Party (Vegetarian)

nature_trash | Nov 3, 201709:47 AM     34

Hello,

I am throwing a dinner party for about 20 friends for my birthday. Last year I did the Momofuku pork shoulder with lots of sides & it was great.

This year, I am planning to make a large pot of (vegan) polenta & then have many toppings that people can add. I'm planning to only make vegan toppings and then offering cheese too (so no meat).

Here's the toppings I'm thinking of so far:

-Ottolenghi oven-dried tomatoes (oven- concentrated tomato sauce)
-Gjelina braised kale (kale braised in tomato sauce with smoked paprika)
-David Tanis fried shallots
-oven braised borlotti beans
-goat cheese, parmesan, blue cheese
-Sautéed mushrooms with balsamic vinegar
-Molly Stevens braised green cabbage (although this might be redundant with the braised kale?)
-Roasted crispy Brussels sprouts
-SQIRL Magic green sauce (parsley & lemon based)

Do you guys have any ideas about the toppings list? Anything I'm missing or over-doing? I'm sort of thinking some sort of squash I can make the day before might be a good addition.

Thank You!
