7 Appetizer Recipes For Hosting A Raw Vegan Party

Anyone who has ever hosted a party knows that it is one thing and one thing only: stressful. What dishes are you going to serve? Will you have enough ice for your beverages? How many people will actually show up versus the amount of people who responded to your Facebook event? Will you bust out your real plates or stick with paper plates for an easier clean up? All of these questions need to be answered!

 

First Thing’s First:

Stop worrying. You are hosting a party, which is meant to be a light-hearted social event that is fun for everyone, including you. You also have to realize that you are not cooking a large meal. A successful party is one that has a variety of appetizers and finger food. People want to grab food and be social, so don’t inhibit socialization by preparing a three-course meal that demands respect and attention. Let people flow naturally and use appetizers to feed your guests.

 

Our advice for the new raw vegan host/hostess is to keep it simple. You don’t need to make three passes of a blended mixture through a cheesecloth and obtain special oil to make delicious raw vegan appetizers. Simplicity does not mean that your food will fall flat or taste bland; rather, it just means that simple flavor combinations form harmonious relationships that delight the palate.

 

One Last Thing:

Don’t worry about the healthy food that you put out for people to eat. You may want to let them know what they are getting into, but some of the recipes in this article will have your friends thinking that they aren’t even eating raw vegan. Think about pairing dishes that utilize similar ingredients and select appetizers that are familiar to people. You can also purchase a few raw packaged items like Go Raw’s chips, or raw dehydrated seed crackers. These are great to use if you are making dips. Let us know how you like the following recipes and if they are a hit at your party.
