Special Diets and the Holidays - Vegan (Tip)
Dear Heloise: With the holidays coming up, many hostesses will face guests who are on special diets — especially vegan diets. Here are suggestions from an old vegan:
If the guests are local, do a potluck. Your vegetarian guests can bring food that they can eat and share. If they can’t cook, pasta with marinara sauce (meat-free tomato sauce) is filling and delicious for everyone.
For houseguests, do a buffet. They always can eat salad, bread, vegetables and often dessert. One or two meat-free meals won’t kill anyone, and if you like, you can put a few veggie burgers in the freezer to substitute for a meat entree.
