There are several websites out there dedicated to vegan cooking, so perhaps so a Google search for vegan recipes or vegan recipe blogs.  Or, since it’s just two or three people, you could call or e-mail them and ask for direction. Laughing

@NLbride:  I have had stacks of eggplant or portabello mushrooms (both have a “meaty” texture) with other veggies (like roasted red peppers) at weddings before. Stuffed peppers or portabello mushrooms could also work!

@NLbride:  Why don’t you ask your vegan guests? Your vegetarian can eat the vegan meal. There are plenty of delicious options but those who eat it the most will probably have the best ideas!

Just tell your caterer that you have 2 vegans and a vegetarian.  They know how to handle food restrictions, it’s their job!

There are a lot of options.  Do you have a caterer?  I would just ask them if they have any standard dishes they prepare as vegan or vegetarian options.

We had a vegan option in addition to a fish and a steak choice. The vegan option was a grilled veggie stack over calypso rice:

There’s a portobello mushroom cap under there that you can’t see. It was amazing. This is what I ate and 6 other guests (of 83) some of whom were not even vegetarians.

@NLbride:  Your caterer should be able to come up with something. This is a lovely vegan menu with some really delicious looking options!

Just pick a vegan meal… your vegitarian will be able to eat it. 🙂 I have one vegan cousin and many vegitarian family members/friends, so I’d probably just make the veg option vegan.

@NLbride:  PS, watch out with the potatoes and veggies. There needs to be no butter in there.

@NLbride:  Ah! Well that’s a whole other ball of wax! I like @mrsSonthebeach‘s dish a lot! Pretty easy and they just have to use oil or margarine instead of butter. If the meal is plated, you’re golden. If it’s a buffet, though, I would be sure to set food aside for the vegans. That dish could look like a side to meat eaters. This is always the problem for my cousin’s at buffets… there’s never enough for them unless they get up there first.

@NLbride:  If you do want to use a butter substitute, the Earth Balance brand is pretty popular and vegan.  That or go with olive oil over butter.  Something with veggies and rice would be perfect.  A dish with a portobello mushroom focus is a great choice.
