Help! I have a work Christmas party this Sunday, and I'm not sure what I should bring. I've been looking for recipes online, and they have to be finger foods. I would like to bring a couple dishes that are vegan and all of my non-vegan coworkers would like. Any suggestions?
Yeah - I knew you guys meant savory but savory TKD FINGER food isn't coming to mind, but I KNOW it's there - LOL! I could swear there are some dips in there, right? Maybe Crocodile Crunch - people totally do mixes at parties!
Now, if you're talking vegan stuff outside of the book, wow, I could go on -
Veggies and/or vegan chips w/ hummos Fruit skewers (wait, that's not savory...) I've seen all manner of things in ball or fritter form which are party/finger-friendly - zucchini, felafels...
I'll shaddup and let other people help now - LOL...
Thanks, Karen! I'm just hoping for some options that the dedicated meat-eaters (and obsessed hunters) won't notice as being "different". They're already going to think I'm crazy. Vegan isn't exactly a Montana lifestyle, at least not here where I work!
I have a few recipes for appetizers if you are interested: Crab Cakes with Remoulade Sauce, garlicky white bean spread on crostini, stuffed mushrooms, all are from Skinny Bitch in The Kitch I also have a few that I bring to party that are not "different" to non vegans like bean dips and chips and also guacamole and chips. cucumber sandwiches are also a good finger food and you can swipe out the non vegan ingredients.
Same here, Quinne. I live in the middle of Kansas, and I don't feel like arguing about my Vegan lifestyle change at the party...I need something that doesn't shout, "I'm a vegan dish." Bean dips and guacamole would be good, and I actually already thought about the peanut butter cups. I made them once, so I know they'll turn out okay. I also found a spinach and artichoke recipe on vegcooking.com....mmmm.
I like the bean dip and spinach-artichoke ideas! I can't do guacamole, as I'm allergic to avocados, which is just about tragic, because I love guacamole. And I'm not making it for everyone else if I can't have it! And I'm going to have to try the peanut butter cups, because everyone's been raving.
I made the peanut butter cups for a party in October and while they were good, they were different. They needed to be refrigerated to stay solid. If I left them on the table they kind of melted and couldn't be eaten very cleanly.
Same with the peanut butter rice crispy treats :\ Tasted good, but not really meant to sit out on a table at a party.
heya danica - the mushroom/leek crostinis from TKD are deliciously great! however, one would need access to an oven to get those lil crostinis all toastie and yummy.
but could substitute - my sis and i the other day, had leftovers of the mushroom/leek melange, artichoke stuffs and pesto. we just heaped it onto strips of tortillas and rolled it up YUM! same flavors, just different packaging :)
