We were planning to do BBQ for our Reception. But I didn't think my 2 friend who are vegetarian would come from out of state...and they are kind of "foodies", she definitely is. I do not want to serve them just a cheese sandwich. I'd prefer something that kind of goes along with our menu - BBQ Beef & Chicken, potato salad, chips, punch, tea, water, marble cake with buttercream frosting & assorted nuts. Vegetarianism isn't completely new to me as I was about 99% vegetarian in college.
Thoughts on the following ideas in particular, would be appreciated.
-cabbage steaks (sounds like a cop-out to me)
-vegetable ravioli, lasagna or gnocchi (not sure we'd do anything other than heated up frozen stuff)
-roasted potatoes and vegetables??
-lentil patties (I actually have a recipe from them that was quite good in the past, and maybe goes better with BBQ, but I'm at a loss. I do know she absolutely despises "fake" meat substitutes.)
FYI, our family is doing the cooking/catering so it isn't fancy but the venue does have an oven, stove, fridge, freezer, microwave so we can cook almost anything within reason.
