Whether you yourself, your partner or some of your friends or family members are vegan, having wedding food options that cater to this diet are easy and super tasty! Your non-vegan guests will often not even know the difference (unless they read the label)! Here are 10 vegan wedding food ideas that you can incorporate into your big day.
1. Avocado Hummus
Most people are already familiar with hummus, so even non-vegans will be ready to devour this yummy dip! This hummus is special though because it is a chickpea and avocado blend, providing a healthier dip option for your spread. Pair this avocado hummus with pita bread or an array of fresh veggies, such as sliced carrots, celery and cucumbers.
2. Spinach Pinwheels
These vegan spinach pinwheels are an easy appetizer option to serve at your wedding! The fluffy texture of the puff pastry paired with the spinach is the perfect balance. Spinach pinwheels are easy to grab and snack on before the main course, or are an excellent side dish option for the main meal.
3. Crispy Cauliflower Wings
Cauliflower is a delicious vegetable that works really well as a meat substitute. Because of its texture, cauliflower can be seasoned with hot sauce and bread crumbs to create an amazing dish that resembles chicken wings! These crispy cauliflower wings will bring the heat, but they can also be cooled down with a vegan ranch dipping sauce or by being served with a bit of celery.
4. Creamy Cucumber Salad
A creamy cucumber vegan salad is the perfect side dish! The vegan sour cream paired with the fresh dill of this salad gives off a light and refreshing taste. This versatile recipe can be served alone or on small sandwiches or sliders.
5. Roasted Veggie Pasta
Pasta is a classic food that mostly everyone loves! This vegan take has a classic tomato based sauce and is loaded with vegetables to make it not only more filling but also more flavorful.
6. Asparagus Fries
Asparagus is a delicious vegetable that works well as a side dish. These crispy asparagus fries are a fun take on the vegetable because they are battered and baked, making them easy for dipping! Pair your asparagus fries with a tangy dipping sauce for the best results.
7. Korean BBQ Tofu Sliders
Tofu is a protein packed meat substitute that works well on sandwiches such as these Korean inspired BBQ tofu sliders. The BBQ of these small burgers gives a great flavor, especially when paired with the Korean slaw. Serve these delicious sliders as a part of the main course, or as an appetizer!
8. Rainbow Glass Noodle Salad
Salads are an easy side dish, and this rainbow glass noodle crunch salad is one like you’ve never had before. Paired with a zesty chile-lime vinaigrette, this colorful salad is flavor packed and delicious.
9. Vanilla Cupcakes
Lastly, let’s get into the desserts! This is a simple and classic dessert, just made vegan! These stunning vegan vanilla cupcakes are a great option for a sweet treat for your vegan guests, especially if your main cake has dairy in it. A small batch of these yummy cupcakes is the perfect option!
10. Dark Chocolate Truffles
These dark chocolate truffles are super easy to make, and you only need two ingredients! They’re super rich, so they will be perfect for your chocolate loving guests!
It is important to be inclusive of all of your guests’ diets, but it doesn’t have to be hard to find foods that everyone will like! There are often many amazing dishes that cater to the majority of diets, you just have to do some digging. I hope that these 10 vegan food ideas help you while planning the catering for your wedding!
