i agree that the pasta is less than inspired.  what about a terrine or a beggar’s purse?  what are your preferences?

Hmmmm. We didn’t have a veggie dish, but only because we literally didn’t know a single vegetarian at our wedding.

I always love eggplant parmesan, if it’s done right. Polenta is really delicious, too. Oooo and vegetarian lasagna is delicious if you make it really fancy.

indiebride, I’m right there with you.  My parents and I are vegetarians, so the veggie option has to be good!  We haven’t picked our menu yet, but it definitely won’t be the same old pasta primavera.  Our venue said they can do almost anything — their veggie choices now are a roasted vegetable and couscous streudel or a portobello stuffed with polenta and grilled vegetables.  I would probably pick the couscous if those were my only options, but I’ll probably try to have them create something new. 

What would you like to have?  I can tell you whether it would be something I would like to eat!  (Although honestly, I’m usually happy if the entree is just the slightest bit creative.)

We are going out to eat, but I specifically chose a place where I can get pizza or pasta, easy to make vegan!

I love a creative veggie dish (I’m a vegetarian as well!).  Unfortunately, our resort didn’t have too many crazy options…I think I had pad thai with tofu?    Anyway, I hear ya!  I am so over limp pasta, a plate of random vegetables and anything terrined!  

Although, it is only one day for your guests, so I wouldn’t worry too much about it!

I know a couple vegetartians … but I’m a huge meat eater. So I don’t know yet. I definitely want to provide something fantastic. I loove grilled portabello mushrooms!

We’re having a veggie panang (mild thai) curry with tofu. The rest of our courses are served family style so besides the meaty and starchy dishes, we have corn & soybeans, and grilled herb veggies in addition to a gazpacho starter and a small mix-green salad.

We can’t seem to decide on a veggie dish for our dinner. We’re having sort of a Thanksgiving themed dinner (turkey and stuffing, etc) and obviously I can’t serve my veggie guests turkey! So far we have the pretty lame veggie lasagna as a default option, but we really want someone more interesting that will fit into the theme. Any ideas? I personally love creative veggie ideas, so I’m open to anything!

@Karii: I personally love a good veggie lasagna.  Maybe make it with butternut squash so it goes more with your Fall/Thanksgiving theme?  And I always do fine at Thanksgiving with everything but the turkey (as long as there’s some veggie stuffing), so I wouldn’t worry about your vegetarian guests going hungry!

Ours is a giant, grilled portobello mushroom stuffed with a roasted red pepper, zucchini and bread crumb mixture and a hummus-y garlic sauce. We are not vegetarians, but we eat a lot of vegetarian food anyway. We thought this looked really tasty.
