The Surprising Ingredient You CAN Live Without

Catering for vegan and vegetarian diets is more and more common in today’s world of health-conscious individuals. While meat lovers may still unite at the delightful and traditional provisions of a catered festivity, it’s important to honor your vegetarian guests as well, with an offering of key veggie-friendly dishes or even an entire meal that is meat and dairy free.

Vegetarian Paella
While your meat-eating guests are enjoying a big pot of Jambalaya, consider offering the veggie goers something similar, in the form of Vegetarian Paella. The flavors mirror each other well and with such a variety of aromatics and spices, everyone should be satisfied. A side salad, along with a few appetizers for both types of eaters, never neglecting dessert, and you’re all set!

Italian Spaghetti and Lasagna
Let everyone enjoy the comforting goodness of Italian spaghetti and meatballs (or without the meatballs) and the uber deliciousness of lasagna! Coupled with some garlic bread and a hearty salad, you may not even need to offer dessert! Well, just to be on the safe side, think about some ice cream sundaes or tiramisu!

Jackfruit
This little plant is a great trickster that imitates the texture of pork or chicken and takes on the marinating flavor too. It’s great in a curry or substitute for pulled pork in a sandwich.

Squash, Squash, and Squash
While the meat eaters nosh on beef tenderloin or prime rib, send your veggie lover guests to heaven with a completely vegan dish of baked spaghetti squash with veggie sauce and a baked stuffed squash. Herbivores will swoon. There really is nothing more delicious and heart-warming than squash. All. Day. Long. Yum! That said, we are now offering the ever versatile “Zoodle,” or noodled zucchini as a natural replacement for pasta.

Dessert
While most often veggie-friendly anyway, desserts are important to everyone. Cakes, cookies, brownies, bars, pie, muffins, and scones – you name it, we can do it! And, for the vegan folks, it’s even possible to provide a beautiful display of fresh fruit and vegan chocolate. We are definitely here to satisfy any and all sweet tooths.
