My sister is bringing her partner round tonight for our side of the family to meet him for the first time. He is vegetarian.
There will be 12 of us in total so I've been racking my brains for something that I could cook for all of us and then a dish for him to eat however I have never met a vegetarian before let alone cooked for one.
I looked online for vegetarians recipes but with the amount of people I'm cooking for it just looked like to much hard work for me.
I have decided just to do loads of pizza with vegetable ones for sisters partner, garlic bread and pasta.
If you were a vegetarian meeting me for the first time would you be happy with eating that or do I need to go to Tesco to get something else?
I think it sounds fine but if you're after something different that everyone can eat but that's still easy you could try a veggie chilli. You can make a huge pot of chilli and rice and have different toppings out for people to help themselves.
SandAndSea I had though about cooking the veggie pizza in the top oven instead of in with the meat ones but hadn't crossed my mind to use a different knife/chopping board so thankyou. ButFirstTea I would have done chilli but there's only 3 of us that will eat it because everyones fussy!
PinkHeart5914 I so go for veggie pizzas myself sometimes your combination sounds lovely and thankyou
You're welcome. It's also good to make everyone else aware of which one's the veggie pizza and veggie knife - meat-eating diners don't always realise stuff like this. Maybe make 2 veggie pizzas in case the others want a slice too.
Mozzarella is fine and as a veggie of 35 years (blimey! ) I am always at my happiest and most comfortable when it's something easy and relaxed like pizza/pasta/g-bread etc. You sound like a lovely host and your sister's partner should feel very welcomed.
If you're putting them all out together, separate the veggie ones from the meat ones and make this clear. Firstly, so the veggie person doesn't go hungry and secondly so that anyone serving a meaty slice doesn't drop a bit on the veggie ones. Tbh, I would make sure that the veggie guest has at least one whole pizza given to him upfront so others don't eat his share. (Bitter experience!)
