Going to Entertaining Vegetarian Friends

by Newlife on June 12th, 2008

Flicking through the cooking book creates a lot of ideas, yet many of the recipes contain meat as their main ingredient. Here are three simple veggie-friendly party food ideas:

Honey and Mustard egg-fried rice

Boil three cups of black rice until cooked and leave to soak in ice cold water. Heat two tablespoons of honey with a tablespoon of oil and two teaspoons of wholegrain mustard in a separate pan, whilst simultaneously frying an omelette (3 eggs). Drain rice and fry with mixed beans. Mix in honey and mustard sauce, serve.

Rice filled Red Peppers

Fry a large onion in oil and simultaneously boil (in vegetable stock) enough rice to fill the peppers you need. Once the rice is cooked and drained, mix in the onions and some peas. Horizontally slice off the pepper tops and fill with rice mixture. Place a slice of blue cheese on top and place in a preheated oven (180ยบ C) for 20 minutes and serve.


Dice a medium red onion, 1 garlic clove and 4 beef tomatoes and mix in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, one tablespoon of sugar and two tablespoons of basil. Drizzle olive oil onto 6 slices of Ciabatta bread and place under the grill for 2 minutes until golden brown. Spoon the mixture onto the bread and serve.
