I would like to make dinner for a few of my friends.

I'm not vegan, but I'd like to make a relatively inexpensive vegan meal that'll feed several people.

Any suggestions???

We usually make fajitas when we have company over.

I think it's the easiest to please a variety of tastes... my vegetarian fiance can have cheese and faux chik'n or seitan, our omnivore guests can have just grilled veggies (to avoid "that weird vegan stuff") and I can easily veganize it for me.

Tacos/fajitas usually go over pretty well.

Chili is easy and really inexpensive for a crowd.  Soy sour cream is actually pretty good, and you could also put out chopped onions to stir in.  And you could bake vegan cornbread or vegan rolls or biscuits (a couple of my mom's recipes if you scroll down a little).  Pasta is super-cheap too, and you can buy jarred spaghetti sauce and add sauteed chopped veggies (I do onion, carrot, garlic, zucchini, and mushrooms) and either veggie "ground beef" or cooked lentils.  And you could make garlic bread -- just heat olive oil and garlic (make sure not to burn the garlic), brush on bread, and bake until slightly browned.  And zucchini brownies for dessert!

How about:

- spaghetti and a nice tomato sauce

- a hearty root-vegetable and barley soup with multigrain crusty rolls

- ratatouille with a side of basmatti rice

A good, easy and inexpensive dessert: any type of fruit crumble, just remember to replace the butter with an oil such as canola. Smiley

Chili macaroni!

Everyone likes theirs different, but I personally like to add salsa to my chili.

What about a homemade veg soup to start, with gorgeous warm bread.  Pasta with tomatos/onions/basil for main & to follow apple crumble with soya milk - depending on where you get your ingredients that could be done pretty cheaply, leaving money to spend on drinks to wash it down with!  Wink


I have lots of train tickets (I get the train most days), if anyone wants some for papercrafting just send me a PM Smiley
