For feta or worse…

Something old, something new, something veggie, sumptuous food!


16 May 2018


All weddings are special occasions, but royal weddings are a celebration for the whole nation. Harry and Meghan will tie the knot on Saturday 19 May, which is during this year's National Vegetarian Week.

When Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle, who has said she tries to eat vegan five days a week, their wedding breakfast will surely be a feast fit for a (future but, let's be honest, probably never going to be) king!

So what could they serve up if they wanted to celebrate their big day in a veggie way? The Vegetarian Society has scoured the lengths and breadths of the foodie world to create a tantalising modern veggie wedding breakfast to wow the guests!


Watercress and Goat’s Cheese Crostini with Asparagus

A few canapés when guests arrive are always welcome and these crostini from Amuse Your Bouche are delightful bitesize tasters.



Barbecued Pineapple Mojito Royale Cocktail

From the first sip this zingy cocktail will put everyone at ease – a great mix by Delicious From Scratch. It even has a suitably regal name!





Halloumi and Watermelon Salad

This refreshing starter created by Delicious From Scratch will wake-up your tastebuds.



Main course

Beer Battered Tofu Tacos

A transatlantic taste sensation - what’s not to love with this recipe from Oh My Veggies.




Rhubarb Eton Mess

This delicate pud is packed with summer flavour, a great addition from The Flexitarian.



Vegan Vanilla Cake with Coconut Cream

A wedding has to have cake and this simple-yet-stylish cake from Super Golden Bakes has all the boxes ticked.



Korean Barbecue Jackfruit Sandwiches

Later on in the evening this super supper sandwich from Oh My Veggies will go down a treat.
