Party Time with Mexican Veg Recipes

By Kinjal Darukhanawala

Today, thanks to increasing awareness about dietary and health guidelines, there has been a fresh surge of interest in the benefits of vegetarianism. Cuisines from around the world like Italian, Mexican, Thai, Chinese and more are being adapted to suit a vegetarian palate, still retaining the unique flavours and varieties that make them so delicious. Mexican veg recipes are often a go-to choice for parties, when you want to serve nutritious vegetarian food with an international flavour.

Veg food has long been given the shorter end of the stick when it comes to cooking for or catering a party or group event. The myth that vegetarian food does not hold as much taste and variety options has been dispelled with the renowned enthusiasm about this lifestyle choice brought about through books, magazines and websites.

If you are planning on hosting a shindig and want to go the vegetarian route without compromising on a largely authentic flavour profile, you will be happy to know that Mexican cuisine can be adapted to suit a meat-free palate with simple modifications.

Let's look at a couple of simple Mexican fares that are popular party staples. Take for example quesadillas; Quesadillas are essentially a tortilla made of flour or corn that is filled with a mix of tasty fillings and then folded. People do use a mixture of meat along with some other ingredients. You can tweak it by leaving out the meat and filling it up with mixed veggies like mushrooms, onions, bell peppers and more, refried beans and a lot of yummy cheese. Then simply cut into convenient finger food sized pieces.

Salsa is not only a good way to get your required daily vegetable servings in but also perfect to spice up your sandwiches and rice dishes or simply use as a dip with crunchy tortilla chips and veg crudits like carrot sticks, celery, broccoli etc. It is far healthier than any grease laden dip and the perfect way to have a nutritious and low fat snack.

Another hugely popular vegetarian side you can use to jazz up your meal is guacamole. Guacamole is made with ripe avocados that have been ground up into a paste like consistency. You can add salt at your discretion and also other ingredients like lime juice, cilantro, spices, black pepper, small tomato and onion pieces etc.

Guacamole is a great way to incorporate healthy fats in your diet and it can fill you up fast. Use it as a dip, a sandwich filling or a side dish as you please. Easy and tasty, how great is that?

This is one of the main reasons Mexican food is so popular. If you are thinking of experimenting with new vegetarian fare and tired of the same old options, Mexican veg recipes are found in plenty online. You will also find great vegetarian food blogs that are dedicated to a healthier diet. If you buy a few main ingredients that this type of cuisine entails and stock your kitchen, you can always whip up great dishes that are a fun break from your routine.
