I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love picnics. There’s something about sitting outside when it’s nice and warm, sipping a cool drink, and nibbling away at simple but tasty food. Here are some recipes for your perfect vegetarian picnic. I also recommend a baguette or two to eat with your salad or cheese, and some rosé or sweet white wine – there’s nothing better than sipping wine while sitting in the sun!
Antipasto, which means “before food” in Italian, is a salad-like appetizer consisting of various fresh and pickled vegetables, cheeses, and rolled or sliced meats. For vegetarian antipasto, you can either substitute mock meat products or leave them out altogether.
One of the things I miss most as a veggie is barbecue sauce, since it’s typically eaten with steak or ribs. What can a vegetarian eat barbecue sauce with? I’ve just learned the answer: fried tofu. Give this barbecued tofu sandwich a try – you won’t believe your taste buds.
Tomato, mozzarella cheese, and basil is my favorite starter; even though I make it myself regularly, I always order it when I eat out.
Cole slaw, a perfect summer picnic salad, is traditionally made with mayonnaise. This cole slaw recipe includes several dressing variations.
Crudités is a French term that refers to raw vegetablesso a platter of crudités typically consists of one or more types of vegetables served with one or more dips.
Simple and refreshing, cucumber salad is the epitome of summer. Different herbs can make it seem like a completely different salad, so don’t be scared to experiment.
Aside from being a nice way to use up leftover hard-boiled eggs, deviled eggs are easy to make, convenient to eat, and tasty to boot.
