None of my friends (save one) are vegan or veg, but I've decided that for one night I am going to passive aggressively force them to comply with my politics. Hah. It's my party, I'll only serve vegan food if I want to! I even have vegan marshmallows for Smores. I don't need to serve dinner because the party begins at 8pm, but I'd like to have the following:
--A crockpot or more "main dish" type of thing. My mom suggested pork bbq, so something along those lines only, y'know, not pork. I don't really want to do chili, but I can't think of anything else that would work here. Can you think of something people could slap on a roll or with some rice & cart around with them in a party atmosphere?
--Lots of fresh, raw veggies & hummus. Also a dip of some sort -- what are your favorites?
--Fresh fruit salad or fruit tray.
Beyond that, I'm kind of stumped. I will, of course, check out the memories, but I'm also curious about your favorite, failsafe party dishes. The things that are so tasty non-vegans don't even notice. Ideally, these would be things that aren't too labor-intensive, though something more complex would be ok as long as I could prepare it in advance. Shopping is not a problem, so whatever ingredients you come up with I can probably find by Saturday.
Thanks in advance for your help.
