I'm helping my mom plan my graduation party, which is basically going to be a finger food type of affair, but am in need of things my boyfriend and I will be able to eat that don't have to be cooked (or are at least somewhat simple to prepare) and can be served cold or at room temperature. We're going to be taking them to a picnic area about 20-25 minutes away from the house, so we really don't have a way to keep a bunch of stuff hot, and need to keep it as simple as possible.

I've looked at recipes on VegCooking (dot) com (it won't let me post the URL because I'm a newbie...heh) and I've tried googling things like vegetarian hors d'oeuvres, but so far I'm not finding much that doesn't have to be kept or served hot or warm.

Do you guys have any suggestions for good, simple vegetarian (doesn't have to be vegan) party dishes that can be served cold or at room temperature? Or suggestions for where I could look/books I could try to find? I'd muchly appreciate it.

How about dips - hummus etc. - with chips or veggies

Quiche - can be served cold

Um, brain not working at the moment

You could try

Good luck!

We just had a party for my 5 yr old last night and I served ( all vegan) -


ranch dip


black bean/mandarin salsa

tortilla chips

potato chips


homemade veggie pepperoni slices

stuffed shells


sun-dried tomato bread

pita triangles

tex-mex dip

strawerry layer cake

The only thing that was served warm were the shells. I have a serving tray that stores ice underneath to keep dips/veggies chilled. There's a recipe section on this site that you might want to check out for some ideas too
