6 Finger Foods For Vegan Party Guests

Posted on

If you're organising a buffet for a party and have vegan guests to consider, you may be wondering what finger food options are available. Thankfully, caterers now offer a wider choice of finger foods, and buffets aren't limited to the chicken wings and sausage rolls of yesteryear. Here are a few examples of vegan finger foods that can be enjoyed by all your guests:

Sweet Potato Falafels

Made with roasted sweet potatoes, these falafels are seasoned with cumin, garlic and fresh coriander. They are baked until golden brown on the outside and fluffy on the inside. These aromatic falafels are perfect for dipping into creamy hummus and can be served hot or cold.

Mediterranean Stuffed Mushrooms

These button mushrooms are stuffed with a mixture of roasted red peppers, diced onions, pine nuts, spinach and diced tomatoes. They are drizzled with a little balsamic vinegar before being baked, which adds a touch of sweetness. Just before serving, fresh basil is sprinkled over the mushrooms, and this gives them a delicate peppery flavour.

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Buffalo sauce is a spicy coating that's traditionally used on chicken wings. However, the sauce works well with cauliflower, as it gives it a crunchy exterior and the interior remains tender. Consisting of oil, hot sauce, dairy-free milk, flour, garlic, onion and paprika, the buffalo sauce is poured over baked cauliflower florets, which are then returned to the oven until crispy.

Mexican-Style Pinwheels

These bite-sized pinwheels are a fun finger food option thanks to their fresh, colourful ingredients. Corn tortillas are filled with refried beans, sliced avocado, salsa, diced peppers, red onions and fresh coriander. Loaded with flavour and easily customisable, your guests will never guess these pinwheels are vegan.

Wakame Spring Rolls

These spring rolls are filled with carrot, avocado, cucumber and wakame. This seaweed, which has a slightly sweet flavour, is packed with vitamins and minerals, so these spring rolls will be a hit with health-conscious guests. They can be eaten as they are or dipped in a soy and sesame oil sauce.

Coconut Tofu Bites

Firm tofu is cut into cubes, coated in a zesty sauce and rolled in shredded coconut before being baked. The sauce consists of creamy coconut milk, lime juice, red pepper flakes and a little Dijon mustard. These tofu bites will be a hit with anyone who enjoys Thai-inspired food.

These are just a few examples of finger food catering your guests might enjoy. Your caterer will be able to make other suggestions, and it wouldn't be considered impolite to ask your guests for their suggestions.
