As one of the most important occasions in a couple’s life, weddings require extensive planning to ensure everything goes right. Aside from planning the venue and reception designs, there is a need to curate the menu carefully to ensure guests enjoy the celebration to the fullest with sumptuous hors d’oeuvres, main course, and desserts. Undoubtedly, it is important to have fresh vegetable dishes for your wedding menu as well.
The best wedding packages in the Philippines should include a menu offering vegetable dish options. Not only are vegetables healthy and delicious, but they are also often a wise menu choice for vegetarian guests or guests with allergies to other dishes. In this guide, we’ve rounded up some ideas for vegetable dishes for your weddings. Rest assured each one will satisfy the palette of any type of guest!
Stir-fried mixed vegetables have always been a quintessential vegetable dish in weddings. For good reason, the vegetable’s variety of textures, umami flavors, and the explosion of color on the plate make for a delightful dish.
Stir-fried mixed vegetables recipes can vary greatly as it is the cook’s choice on what ingredients to add. From crunchy carrots, broccoli florets, sweet baby corn, soft portobello mushrooms, bell peppers, to snow peas — you can ask your local catering services about the ingredients they use.
This wonderful stir-fried mixed vegetable dish is a mainstay in Asian cuisine. It creates flavor and excitement with simple cooking and just a few authentic ingredients. You can serve it to your guests along with the main dish with rice or noodles.
Looking for a cheesy and healthy dish to serve for your wedding? A baked eggplant parmesan just might be your best choice. The best thing about having baked eggplant parmesan on your wedding menu is that it is versatile enough to be an appetizer, side dish, or main course.
The eggplant slices are perfectly coated with panko bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. After being baked between layers of tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, it is topped with a zesty combination of fresh herbs like basil. Truly, baked eggplant parmesan is a dish that is savory and healthy as it is filling.
Steamed asparagus is the answer if you are in search of a meal that’s light, hearty, and healthy. While this vegetable wedding dish may seem too simplistic for your special occasion, it is a great side dish option that matches with just about any chicken and fish meal such as steamed or grilled salmon and roasted chicken.
Perhaps what makes steamed asparagus worth adding to your wedding menu is that it is healthy and its flavors can be easily heightened with seasonings. After the asparagus are trimmed and placed in the steamer, they are basked with melted butter, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and garlic. It is easy to prepare yet sophisticated enough for a wedding side dish.
Sometimes the simplest meals are just as good as the complex ones and the stir-fried broccoli with garlic dish is a perfect example of this saying. Similar to stir-fried mixed vegetables, this dish is also flavorful despite its simplicity.
The broccoli comes out very crisp and is coated in garlic and olive oil. So it does not come as a surprise when this healthy and easy to prepare Cantonese-inspired dish has recently gained popularity of being a wedding menu must-have. Delicious and easy to make — stir-fried broccoli with garlic can easily match with any other type of dish such as chicken or steak.
If you’re looking for a healthy appetizer for your wedding, you can serve vegetable fritters. Packed with ingredients like potatoes, carrots, zucchinis, broccoli, and parsley — the dish is filled with healthy ingredients that will surely satisfy the palettes of even your vegetarian guests.
The best part is, the vegetables are perfectly concealed in these yummy fritters, making it the perfect dish for picky kids. You can also ask your catering provider to serve creamy yogurt sauce on the side. Guests can simply dip the vegetable fritters for added flavors. The marriage of these two is a dish your guests will always crave for.
There is no doubt that there are numerous things to plan for when it comes to weddings, including the menu.
