You may remember that last year we were asked to create our first ever ALL vegetarian menu – no meat in sight! Well since then, word has got around about Karen’s wonderful veggie menu ideas – and we have many more planned for 2018 and 2019.
We thought we’d share some of Karen’s creative menus with you all – no one will be feeling hungry that’s for sure!
CANAPES & STARTERS
We usually suggest choosing four canapes per person – here are some favourites that we think will be a hit (even with the carnivores).
Griddled halloumi & fresh pineapple salsa
Mini chick pea burgers with tomato & chilli relish
Mediterranean vegetable tortilla cubes
Parmesan & rosemary shortbreads with sun dried tomato & basil
Veggie starters can be plated individually – or to create a more social atmosphere, some of these dishes work fabulously as part of a sharing starter!
Miso vegetables & tian of rice with black sesame dressing
Roast tomato & toasted almond galette with lemon dressed leaves
Puy lentils, griddled raddichio & walnuts with Manuka honey
Griddled asparagus and hollandaise with quail’s eggs
MAIN COURSE IDEAS
The options are limitless – here are a few our our favourites…
Iranian vegetable ‘stew’ with dried lime
Roast butternut squash and sweet potato with chilli yoghurt and coriander sauce
Pea & mint croquettes with fresh mint sauce
Three cheese & thyme tart with caramelised onions on dressed leaves
On the side…
Crushed baby potatoes in their skins with butter & chives
Parmesan & thyme oven chips
Griddled broccoli & cauliflower in chilli and garlic oil
Green beans & mange tout with toasted hazelnuts & hazelnut & orange dressing
Cauliflower red grape & cheddar salad
If you’re having a more informal day – the DIY dessert goes down wonderfully. We provide boards of chocolate brownies, shortbreads, Florenties & meringues and serve with fresh berries, whipped double cream, berry coulis and chocolates sauce, yum! We also create some great individual desserts too:
Dark chocolate & orange mousse with Florentine
Elderflower & prosecco jelly with edible flowers
Tart au citron with fresh raspberries
Eton Mess Sharer – A large glass bowl piled high with homemade meringues, whipped double cream fresh raspberries, rose petals & pistacchios. Drizzled with berry coulis.
