    I'm making Easter dinner for 7 people, 2 kids, and a vegetarian.

    What the hell do vegetarians eat for Easter dinner? :eek:

    I'm likely making a ham, parsley (red) potatoes, asparagus with a hollandaise sauce, and I don't know what else yet.

    In my house, the side dishes.

    I ain't making a special meal just for them.

    Once, we had Thanksgiving at the in-laws. Well, my bro-in-law at the time was a vegetarian. I found out the day before that there would be no turkey, no ham, no meat at the meal. I went "Oh hell no" and got up early that morning and started slow grilling the biggest damn pork tenderloin I could find, basting it in teriyaki sauce and such. Brought that as our "side dish". Bro-in-law wound up eating about a pound of it I think.

    I have quite a few vegetarians in my social circle. They are quite happy if I serve a risotto (mushroom or a version with banana squash and mirepoix are favs) or some type of pasta (gnocchi with gorgonzolla sauce, tortellini with pesto, etc.). Often, the meat eaters want the vegetarian selection as a side dish, so I made plenty.

    Also - lots of salad.

    Ask the vegetarian what they would like to eat, then make that.

    My sister in law makes vegetarian lasagna for my daughter and I when we go there for family functions. Or if it's more casual, veggie subs. Don't sweat it, I always hate it when someone makes a big fuss over us being 'vegetarian' and what they should make us to eat. A lot of time the sides are enough to fill up on.

    There are quite a few vegetarian foods I *like*.. they just don't seem suitable for a more formal sit down dinner... burritios, veggie burgers, etc.. And lasagna sitting next to a giant ham just seems wrong. There will be some sort of salad (since I can't live without it), and there will be artisan breads.

    Is there a ham version of tofurkey? :lol:
