Veganism is rapidly taking over the UK, with over half a million practicing vegans in the UK last year. Whether it is a lifestyle choice, fitness and health choice or an allergy issue, we’re surrounded by extensive plant-based cuisines, making it a great time to throw a perfect vegan wedding. You are sure to please any meat-obsessed friends and family, and perhaps even inspire a few in the process!
Here are some tasty three-course ideas for your special vegan wedding menu.
Vegan starters for weddings
First on our list of stunning vegan-friendly starters is our very own sweet potato and basil soup finished with rocket crisps. This all-rounder is beautifully presented, hearty, and homemade with the freshest and purest ingredients. Suitable for vegetarians, vegans and also those with a gluten intolerance. Winner!
Perhaps soup is not your thing, or you’re looking for something a little more season-fitting. If you’re planning a spring/summer wedding then ratatouille kebab skewers may be the starter for you. Although it is a simple concept, the mixture of flavours combined with the vibrant appearance make this a super fresh and scrumptious starter for all of your guests to tuck into!
Vegan main courses for weddings
Why not tantalise your guests’ taste buds with a bold and flavoursome spicy red lentil curry? Served with couscous as a rice alternative and a vegan-friendly naan or pitta bread, this dish is flavour packed, eye catching and tasty!
If you’re trying to avoid a spicy dish, you may want to serve something closer to a creamy butternut squash linguine or a seasonal vegetable risotto with toasted hazelnut. Either way, you will have the perfect opportunity to showcase how flavoursome and tasty vegan dishes can be for all the non-believers and critics.
Vegan desserts for weddings
Some people consider dessert the most important part of any meal. After all, how you finish is equally important as how you start—if not more. Choosing a dessert can be tricky at the best of times with the ongoing chocolate-sweet or fruit-sweet battle, so you will need a winner to end with.
Not many people are aware that a vegan chocolate brownie can be made just as gooey and chocolatey as a non-vegan brownie. Serving this up with fresh vegan ice cream and seasonal fruits for balance will leave your friends and family in awe.
If you’re not a great chocolate lover then the all-American classic pumpkin pie is a great alternative. Made with soy milk and cornstarch to form the custard, you miss none of the flavours. You can even use a gluten-free pastry base to cover all dietary requirements!
Whatever you decide to serve on your special day, you’re sure to find something for everyone. From foods and sweet treats to wines and other refreshments, your vegan wedding menu will help your day to be executed perfectly from start to finish.
