Vegetarian Octoberfest options

Recommended Posts

I will be hosting the month homebrewers meeting in October, which will feature many german beers. I need some ideas of what snacks to serve that are vegetarian. Right now, I am considering some freshly baked pretzels, rye bread, and to scare and annoy people... Currywurst using Tofurky brats and a jar of pickled herring. Any thoughts out there? What about cheeses?

Thanks!

If your providing the beer and some breads, tell them to bring a dish. Treat it like a pot luck, that way no one can gripe about the food.

Saurkraut braised in something a little sweet like apple juice.

Some of the people coming will bring their homebrews for blind peer review using nationally recognized beer judging standards. Commercial beers will also be brought for social consumption and inspiration for future brews. As host, my main job is to provide a small spread and be the beer wench. I am also planning on making an apfelkugel or other apple desserts as they will be in season.

German potato salad, spatzle, veggie strudel/tart? And not exactly German, but raclette or potato rosti, perhaps.

Doesn't German potato salad usually have bacon? Or at least bacon fat?

No problem though, since plenty of today's Germans are enthusiastically vegetarian or vegan (and will tell you all about it), so leaving out the any meat/meat-derived ingredients wouldn't even be 'unGerman' :wink:

Potato salad is a good idea. I also have a recipe from Mark Bittman for beer braised potatoes with (Tofurky) kilbasa, cheddar, and horseradish. Tempting, but I don't want to make too many fancy dishes and overhost the meeting.
