My mom is hosting a dinner party next weekend for a benefit, and four vegans will be attending. All of the guests had to donate money to the charity to attend, so she wants to make sure that she cooks them a meal that they will be satisfied with. She is already going to cook a marinated portobello mushroom as one main dish, but any ideas on the other courses would be appreciated. I don't know how much "fake" cheese or meats she will be looking to get, but maybe some hearty vegetable dishes, especially the main course.
menu for next Saturday:
prosecco and smoked salmon appetizers
asparagus-prochuttio-mozzarrella -cherry tomato salad with savingnon blanc
sweet potato chestnut soup with Chardonnay (the soup is already vegan, although the other guests will get a dollop of creme fresh. is there a good vegan alternative for that?)
cedar planked salmon-garlic mashed potatoes-green beans with pinot noir (portobello balsamic mushroom for this.)
London Broil with Venetian peppers and Cabernet
cheesecake with port
Thanks for your help!
