Quiche I am so sad if I go to a buffet and there's no quiche. Cheese and onion is fine with me.grin

Ricotta and spinach filo pastry pie if u can be bothered, cheese and biscuits if not

chiz and pineapple on a stick

mix cooked rice, noodles, chipsticks, peas, soya sauce and lime juice to make a salad - surprisingly tasty though I've never bothered to put the chipsticks in it.

haloumi fries

devilled eggs

onion bhajis, pakoras etc

hummus with things to dip in it

A warm salad-y thing would be nice like like a roast butternut squash/onion/lentil (Ottolhengi has a nice recipe). Other options would be a Mediterranean chickpea salad, couscous and roast veg salad.

Other ideas would be a vegetable tart, a baked pasta dish (stuffed shells, veggie lasagne), vegetarian chilli, or pulled jackfruit.

Salads - potato or coleslaw

These are all good. But as an ex-vegetarian: we like to eat vegetables not just simple carbs. I usually take salady things, vegetable sticks, fruit to any buffet and they tend to all be gone quickly. People need fibre.

Homemade coleslaw.
Corn on the cob.
Greek salad.
Grilled aubergines with a sesame dressing.

That should say sheet nachos blush
Tortilla chips with regrows beans, guacamole, salsa and grated cheese, cooked in the oven until the cheese is melted. So good

*refried beans

I give up!

Pastry is a lazy option for vegetarians.

Bring an interesting salad with unusual ingredients - the Oh She Glows chickpea salad is delicious and has fresh dill and mustard as well as garlic and pickled dill cucumbers.

Meera Sodha’s Black Rice and Chargrilled Broccoli salad has the most amazing dressing with cashews, miso paste, maple syrup and lemon juice.

I wouldn't assume all vegetarians want only healthy options.

Cmagic7 Wed 18-Dec-19 08:08:55

Both of those recipes look brilliant @FamilyOfAliens!

PurpleDaisies Wed 18-Dec-19 08:11:56

I agree @Cmagic7. Perfect for serving with a nice pastry main course. wink

Those little stuffed red things - peppers?! My brain isnt working this morning but those are the absolute best thing.

Torvi Wed 18-Dec-19 10:17:46

Spanish tortilla is great

Wearywithteens Wed 18-Dec-19 10:25:25

I’m a vegetarian and I wouldn’t like most of these choices especially the egg based ones - yuck.
I would like:
Nice salads, rice/pasta/zingy coleslaw (not mayo drenched one)
fresh crusty bread and butter,
cheese board and pickles,
Warm veggie rolls (cheese&onion or soya)
