Gluten free vegetarian party dish

Looking for vegan party food recipes? Whether you’re preparing for a birthday party, Christmas or New Year’s, I’ve got you covered!

Here’s a list of 50 recipes, which are all vegan as well as gluten-free and refined sugar free. They’re all made using simple plant-based ingredients and are relatively healthy too!

I’ve put together a selection of savoury party food, shareable side dishes, bite-sized desserts and decadent cakes + pies.

When preparing for a party, cooking as much in advance as possible is key, so each recipe below includes details of whether it can be prepared ahead of time and tips for how best to store and reheat before serving.
