A good place to start looking is this website http://happyherbivore.com/

She has several great recipes for vegans and I highly recommend them as they are also low-fat and oil free. Go to the recipes on top of the page and ingredients. Tons of ideas here!

One wedding I went to had skewers of seasoned roasted root veggies. So yummy chunks of potato, sweet potato and the like. They were really pretty, too, with all the colors! Regular roasted veggie skewers would be good too…

Vegan sushi rolls are a good option too.

There are a couple of different ‘genres’ of vegan out there, you may want to e-mail them about what they are specifically. For example, I have a friend that won’t eat anything with honey in it but I have another friend that will so long as she didn’t pay for it.

The seasoned root veggies sound yummy!

In general:  Roasted veggies are usually a safe bet- roasted red pepper is a personl fave! Eggplant is good too if you can resist putting cheese on it. Marinara sauce and marinades are your friend. Coconut milk is also usually a safe choice in place of things with milk.

Concrete ideas off the top of my head”

Hummus on pita chips with olive and tomato topping.

Samosa (Indian puff pastry with pea and potato filling), just be careful how the vendor prepares it!

Check out http://www.vegweb.com for some suggestions as well! Veggie Spring Rolls…Hummus as in PP, roasted veggies on canapes. My Fiance is a vegan and I am slowly learning what options there are for him as well!

At my wedding, one popular passed hors d’oeuvre was a cucumber cup filled with an edameme puree topped with spicy chili oil and sesame seeds.

I’m vegan and we had a vegan wedding. We had crostini and hummus (yes, many breads are vegan. just check first) and an assortment of dips like an asparagus tapenade and a few others (I didn’t get to eat them, and I really don’t remember what we chose!) Maybe some falafal and hummus or a pasta salad (again, many pastas are vegan, you just have to be careful about how its made).

Our caterer did a vegetarian wedding and had a few vegan appetizers that sounded great.  They had olive oil poached edamame bruschetta with balsamic reduction, ratatouille timbales, and chilled golden tomato bisque (fancy name for gazpacho, I think?)

I’m going to suggest checking out http://www.theppk.com for ideas for any type of vegan food you could want. They have their own recipes, but you can also search the forums and I’m sure you’ll find tons of ideas.
