1. Roasted Cauliflower With Caraway Seeds: This is how to get the party started. Roasted cauliflower will wake up your guests’ taste buds and set the tone for the evening. (via Highgate Hill)

2. Hasselback Potatoes: A take on a Swedish dish named after the first restaurant in Stockholm where it was served, Hasselback potatoes served with spinach and wild garlic are one of the best ways you can celebrate the tastes of spring. (via Honest Plates)

3. Butternut Squash Bisque: No dinner party would be complete without a round of soup. Better make yours this one. (via Bold Vegan)

4. Sweet Onion Tarts With Cream Cheeze and Thyme: One thing is certain: Vegans and non-vegans everywhere want this at your next dinner party. (via Vegan in Melbourne)

5. Roasted Baby Spring Carrots With Lemony Dill Pesto: Pesto made from dill? Bring it! (via With Food and Love)

6. Tacos With Kale and Pickled Red Onions: Fact: Dinner parties are way more fun when guests get to eat with their hands. (via Cupcakes and Kale)

7. Fennel Roasted With Tomato Sauce: Fennel has never looked so good. We kind of just want to take a picture of it, make a huge print and put it on our wall. Oh, and we also want to eat it. The dish, not the picture, in case that wasn’t clear. (via Dine and Dash)

8. One Hour Vegan Pot Pies: Is there anything cuter than individual pot pies? We think not. (via Minimalist Baker)

9. Shiitake Nigiri: A Japanese spin to your dinner party just might be the perfect way to incorporate these beauties into your dining room. (via Olives For Dinner)

10. Fresh Carrot, Avocado and Orange Salad: The combination of creamy avocado, earthy carrots and fresh citrus makes this dish a winner. (via A Thousand Threads)

11. Crispy Polenta Balls: Because, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, that’s why. (via No Whey No Cow)

12. Maple and Curry Acorn Squash: Super easy to throw together and perfect for the third course, the flavor combination of maple syrup and curry is one you want to gift your guests with. (via Healthy Nibbles and Bits)

13. Herbed Nut Cheese With Herbs de Provence: No vegan dinner party would be complete without a cheese-you-made-yourself course. Let this be how you kick things off. Find a nice white wine that pairs well with the savoriness of this “how the heck did she make that?” app. (via This Rawsome Life)

14. Brussels Sprouts: There is a right way and a wrong way to prepare Brussels. This is the right way. (via The Good Kind of Crazy)

14. Mushroom Bruschetta: Sometimes the most simple of dishes are the biggest crowd pleasers. (via PBS Food)

15. Garlic Smashed Potatoes: We’re loving this entire situation. Garlic and potatoes were destined for each other. (via Damn Delicious)

16. Mushroom Hot Pot: And now for something entirely different. This could possibly be the most fun dinner party idea yet. Guest can mix in whatever ingredients you leave out for them. We suggest grilled tofu, peppers, mushrooms and some basil. Then they’ll mix and match and make their own unique creations. Think of it as an art class and a dinner party all in one go. (via Post Punk Kitchen)

17. Blonde Macaroons: It’s time to wind things down with something sweet — coconut, vanilla and maple syrup sweet. (via The Honour System)

18. Raw Cacao Truffles: The perfect ending to the perfect dinner. Savor one of these and then hope that someone volunteers to do the dishes! (via Bold Vegan)
