63 Vegan Canapés and Party Food Recipes you need to know about... (1)

A collection of the best recipes for vegan canapés and party food - from elaborate showstopping canapés to easy throw-it-all-together party snacks. All you need now is the prosecco!

Party food and buffets can be a bit of a minefield for vegans, but also a fantastic opportunity to offer inventive and delicious vegan food to friends and family, an opportunity to 'show off' what can be done with nothing but plants. This roundup of 63 recipes for vegan canapes and party food will give you some ideas and inspiration for a showstopping party spread.

One of the most important things to remember if you're offering a few vegan options amongst a mixed buffet is labelling - make sure you let everyone (especially the vegans) know what's what, to avoid any confusion.From experience, if you just write 'VEGAN' on a dish, everyone will assume its just for the vegans and steer clear, but if you give the dish a name, with a small (vg) in the corner, the vegans will know it is 'safe' and everyone else might be tempted to give it a try too.
