If you’re planning a Vegan wedding menu, Feast it have some tasty suggestions for 2019…
With plant-based diets on the rise, it’s no surprise that the popularity of vegan wedding food is also increasing with couples tailoring their weddings to sit their ethical beliefs.
If you and your partner are considering a Vegan menu for the big day, you’re in for a treat! Here, Hugo Campbell, Co-Founder of Feast It, the UK’s leading event catering marketplace, predicts some of the delicious vegan wedding dishes we can expect to see in 2019.
Vegan fried chicken burgers
“Vegan burgers can be just as ‘dirty’, if not more, than a meat option. Easily mistaken for the real thing, deep fried vegan chicken is just as succulent and tasty, making it the perfect late-night wedding snack after an evening of drinking and dancing. Street food trader, ‘Last Night a Vegan Saved My Life’ work up an incredible seitan burger with crispy batter, vegan cheese and homemade sweet and spicy Carolina sauce that any guest, vegan or not, would devour in a flash!”
“Barbequed vegetables can be injected with packs of flavour, making them a substantial stand-alone dish. Outdoor barbeques are always popular at summer weddings, with the theatre of outdoor cooking exciting guests. Mediterranean veg such as peppers, aubergine and courgette are barbeque favourites. The Flavour Trailer’s playful take on a smoked aubergine dish, ‘the purple emoji’, is bang on trend in the foodie scene this year.”
A classic stone-baked pizza
“Big, bold, sharing dishes are increasingly popular at weddings. The relaxed nature of everyone diving in is a great ice-breaker and many people are opting for it instead of the formal 3-course tasting menu. Pizza is the ideal sharing food, and many sourdough pizza bases, such as those served by Ped’s Pizza, are suitable for vegans.”
“Vietnamese is the perfect wedding cuisine, with a quirkiness and character that will impress guests, and dishes that aren’t too rich and heavy on the stomach. Fresh and full of flavour, meat eaters won’t be disappointed by vegan dishes made with crisp vegetables and tofu. Vietvan offers a variety of dishes to create a unique wedding menu including gyoza dumplings, pho, summer rolls and banh mi.”
“Cute, individual desserts make a memorable ending to a meal for wedding guests. Crumble is a classic rustic pudding, but it can be posh, and it can be vegan. Humble Crumble take the old school dessert and give it a grown-up makeover, with vegan toppings available made using sunflower oil as an alternative to butter. A hybrid of a cocktail and a dessert, flavours include ‘Gin Up’ using Rhubarb Gin and ‘Fizzicle’, made with apples, strawberries and prosecco. Humble Crumble also uses plant-based compostable food packaging that decomposes within 8 weeks, making them a sustainable option too.”
