As a vegetarian, you almost certainly already
know the disappointment involved in trying to find good food to eat at
any parties you go to. You most likely usually offer to bring something
for the host so that you know there'll be at lesat ONE thing at the
party that you can eat. This year, why not take matters into your own
hands and host your own New Year's Eve party - with vegetarian food all
around. There are tons of wonderful vegetarian dishes to choose from.
You could even prepare cards labeling some of your more exotic dishes
on the buffet ( this is particularly beneficial for ethnic foods ) so
people know what they are going to be eating. As a party favor, you
could print a little recipe book or recipe cards with instructions on
how to prepare a couple of your favorite dishes. ( Who knows, maybe
they'll make it the next time they invite you over to their house!Though
some salad munchers, particularly those that eat vegetarian for health
reasons, rather than moral or environmental reasons may opt to prepare
meat-based dishes to serve along side vegetarian foods, many salad
munchers do not like cooking beef and will decide to test their guests
with a new and various menu of vegetarian party foods.Another
nice perk of serving vegetarian food is that it can be less expensive.
Though, if you go hell for leather for fresh berries and fruit ( which
isn't in season around New Year's Eve ) or a large amount of fancy
wines and cheeses, your party may not be too cost-effective. One way to
cut back on the cost of the party is to substitute hearty vegetarian
dishes in the place of the more expensive beef dishes. If properly
prepared, most guests won't even miss the presence of the meat. Heavy
soups that are familiar to meat-eaters ( like bean chili, black bean
soup, or split pea soup ) are a great choice as the tastes and
appearance are familiar and the tastes mix together well even without
the addition of burger or ham. When selecting these recipes, it is
critical to follow each recipe punctiliously and not make any
substitutions. This is important because items you may substitute into
the recipes may contain animal products. Making these substitutions
will result in your dishes not being totally vegetarian.Alternately
an alternative way to offer a various vegetarian menu is to make the
event a potluck. However, if almost all of the guests are not salad
munchers, they may have difficulty deciding what to bring and might
also inadvertently include ingredients with animal products in the
food. In this example, suggest what you'd like your guests to bring
-'Jim, you're making a mean guacamole, would you mind whipping that up
and bring it along with some salsa and chips?', 'Erin, I loved that
hummus and pita bread you served last summer... Would you mind bringing
that along to share?'Another important thing to remember when
planning a vegetarian New Years Eve party is that it is important to
make sure the guests are mindful of your intentions. This is
particularly important if the event is going to be a potluck. it's also
pleasantness even if you'll be preparing all of the food so that the
guests know what to expect when they attend the party. Some meat-eaters
are extraordinarily wary about trying new dishes, so be sure to have
some staples out that everyone will love. Bread, fruit, pretzels, chips
and nuts are great vegetarian options that are popular among 'main
stream' dieters also.Remember, as the host of your party, the
most vital role you can play is to be certain your visitors are
comfortable and having a fab time. Inspire them to get to grasp each
other by helping set up new conversational partners, plan some exciting
pastimes (like toasting in the New Year 'around the world' each time
the clock hits a new hour), and confirm everybody driving home is fit
to do so.
