We had the option of halibut (fish) for those who were vegetarian instead of ribeye steak.

I don’t think fish is a vegetarian option.

If you’re okay with reaching out to different types of food — there’s a ton of great vegetarian Indian food! Rice, curries, etc.

If you’re looking for more of an addition to an already established meal, I would say pasta with veggies and a meat free sauce is a good option.

We’re having a 3 cheese tortellini pasta dish. It’s pretty divine. Lucky vegetarians!

You may want to find out if your vegetarian friends/family are pescatarian (who eat fish) rather than vegetarian (who don’t).  There are great vegetarian options – pastas, eggplant parm, mushroom risotto, etc.  Good luck!

Our venue offers either a spinach and mushroom tart or penne with pesto, goat cheese and cherry tomatoes.  I think we’ll probably go with the pasta dish, since I know a lot of people don’t really like mushrooms.

Oh my gosh, mushroom risotto is amazing!!  I would also love the spinach/mushroom tart.  Yum!  And pretty much anything with truffle oil is delicious to me.

@dorsay – That gnocchi sounds amazing!

I think the reason that most people go with pasta is that it is hearty and they know the vegetarians won’t leave hungry- and you can pick something that everyone will like a little easier.

Good options I have seen:

– any kind of ravioli, usually with squash, spinach or cheese filling (yummy!)

– quiches

– stuffed bell peppers

– eggplant parmisan

– a really nice vegetable medley with potatoes or pasta can be lovely

– veggies in pastry

 

Wedding kind of call for avoiding some of my favorite types of vegetarian food, like curried lentils and vegetable stew, just for presentation, but there are great options.

What’s the rest of your menu?  That would help shape the veg option as well.  There are lots of good tart options.

As a former vegetarian, my favorite and what seems the most festive to me would be a savory tart.  Just my two cents.
