Planning a vegan party
It can be tricky to know where to start when planning a vegan party – particularly if you’re inviting non-vegan guests. However, it can be done and it’s not as hard as you think. Just last month I hosted a birthday party for my seven year old daughter and made entirely vegan food – none of the kids even noticed.
Some very convenient ingredients are vegan – such as fruit, veg and beans of course – but also ready made pastry, breadsticks and bread rolls. You should always check the ingredients of course (is it just me or does milk powder have a habit of popping up all over the place?) but you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding vegan versions of these things.
If you’ll be serving booze at your party you’ll need to check that the alcohol you purchase is vegan too. Lots of wine isn’t suitable for vegans as it’s filtered through fish or contains egg to clarify it. The same goes for beer. Find out more about which brands of alcohol are vegan.
I like to have a good mix of finger foods, dips and salads at a party. It’s good to have a few options that people can snack on without necessarily needing a plate. Similarly if choosing salads it’s good if they can eaten with just a fork rather than needing a knife as well.
