Asian Inspired Vegetarian Party Finger Food

Who doesn’t love Asian food? Turn it into party finger food and don’t forget about all the dipping sauces. Asian cuisine makes perfect vegetarian party nibbles and canapes because a lot of the food is veggie anyway!  Those foods that aren’t veggie there are easy substitutes.  Pulses and beans work perfectly, or vegetables.  

The spring rolls will go amazingly with peanut sauce. A good quality tofu can be like a dream come true. Especially if you fry it with some garlic and soak it in a sweet and sour sauce. Samosas are a classic as well and will be a good representation of some Indian food on your buffet table.

Vegetable Based Nibbles And Bites

Another category of vegetarian finger food is veggie based nibbles. There are vegetables involved in all the canapes but what you can do is to make the veggies the star of the evening. Jalapeno peppers can be spicy so watch out when you take out the seeds from those babies! Baked potatoes with sour cream are amazing and will go especially great if your party is a BBQ. The aubergine rolls can be prepared in so many different ways, but try the classic ricotta stuffed, tomato sauce baked. Yum!

Mini Burgers And Sliders

We end our vegetarian party nibbles and canapes with burgers.  And yes burgers without exist, and they taste amazing.  There are plenty things that can make a delicious veggie burger. Grilled halloumi is definitely one of the favourite choices. Top it with some lettuce, tomatoes, and olives. Zucchini can take so many different forms and it may be the right time to try it in your mini burgers. Serve with some garlic mint yogurt. You will be surprised how amazing it tastes. Our last vegetarian buffet star is a beetroot and egg slider. In Australia that is the way to eat a burger, and it is surprisingly tasty. If you feel extra adventurous add a pineapple slice.
