If these options don’t sound like they may be for everyone and you’re hosting a gathering that will include a mix of guests — those who eat meat and those who prefer plant-based alternatives — don’t feel the need to have an entire menu for both.
Remember, all you need is a few options that you can pull together with your traditional menu in order to make sure everyone at the get-together is well-fed.
Don’t make a big deal out of it; just have meatless options alongside the traditional versions, there might be meat-eaters who are excited to try some of the plant-based options, too.
