Off To Market: No Meat or Dairy Appetizer

The other day I received a frantic voicemail from one of my best girlfriends, Melissa in Seattle. She enjoys cooking and has invited some friends over for appetizers and drinks before they head out to dinner at a fancy restaurant. Melissa is a strict vegetarian who doesn't eat meat or fish in any way, shape, or form. One of her guests has a fragile stomach, is lactose intolerant and cannot consume dairy products. Now you can guess what Melissa hurriedly asked me in the message, "What should I make?" This is a tough one guys, and I need your help (all of my crowd pleasing appetizer recipes have meat or cheese!). What should she make? I need you to add your best recipes for a meat and dairy free appetizer to the recipe database. Don't forget to mark your recipes with the keyword phrase No Meat-Dairy Appetizer.

To learn how to share your recipes in the recipe database, read geeksugar's easy to understand guide.

I'm lactose intollerant too and thought I should pass on a tip: Most people who are lactose intollerant can process goat cheese. It's a yummy alternative you might wanna pass on to your friend's friend. :)

Thanks Emi! That was my fault folks. We had a technical bug earlier and when I fixed it, I put in the typo. Thanks for catching my dopey mistake! Should be fixed now.

Party-- the recipe that you posted is tagged "no meat-diary appetizer" instead of "no meat-dairy appetizer" so the link on this blog is going to that tag. Just thought I'd let you know! I posted a recipe for delicious Veggie Spring Rolls and I'll probably think on it and post some more later today. :)

I had a fab appetizer at Batali's Mozza last week. It was a white bean bruchetta. You can probably do anything like a hummus & flatbread or bruchettas with various veggie ingredients. Veggie samosas ... veggie spring rolls or summer rolls ... veggie potstickers/dumplings ... If your veggie friend eats eggs I make a pretty cool mini fritatta (I make them in muffin cups) that you can do without cheese.
