Vegetarian Lunch options don’t necessarily have to taste or look boring.

You have the option of incorporating some of the freshest, healthiest ingredients into your meals that will have you going back for seconds!

Putting together completely vegetarian lunch catering menus, however, can be a bit tricky as you’ll want to include dishes that are full of flavor and protein while ensuring that your guests are left feeling satisfied.

Here are some vegetarian lunch catering menu options that professional caterers offer.

Vegetarian Wraps & Seasonal Vegetable Dishes

A wrap packed with a variety of healthy vegetables makes for a light yet satisfying lunch.

If you’re looking for a quick lunch option, consider including a veggie wrap that contains shredded lettuce, olives, cucumbers, and cheese. If you have a preference when it comes to vegetables, ask your caterer if they can include your choice of vegetables.

Glazed carrots or a mixed vegetable dish, which includes the season’s sought-after vegetables sauteed in olive oil and lightly seasoned, make great veg options.

Vegetarian Sides

If you’re planning a lunch event and want to keep it meat-free, consider including a selection of plant-based side dishes.

You can include potatoes made in three ways—creamy mashed potatoes, crispy roasted potatoes, and potato salad—or even coleslaw, which is another great option to include in a vegetarian-based lunch menu.

Having multiple vegetarian sides can give your guests a variety of options to choose from that are both filling and make great accompaniments for any kind of main dish.

Vegetarian Pasta Dishes

Macaroni and cheese is a classic dish that’s loved by almost everyone. Include a dish of creamy mac and cheese that has been baked to perfection to give the ultimate crispy top that every good mac and cheese must have.

A vegetable and cheese lasagna is another winner when planning a vegetarian lunch menu. A rich, cheesy lasagna filled with vegetables not only works as a complete meal for lunchtime but you can also get as creative as you want with your choice of veggies.

Eggplant Parmesan with marinara sauce is the ideal vegetarian meal if you want your guests to indulge in a hearty and comforting meal. Make sure you’re generous with the mozzarella cheese for cheesy, warm goodness.

Vegetarian Salads

The first thing that may come to your mind when you think of ‘salads’ is probably a huge bowl filled to the brim with salad leaves, tomatoes, cucumbers, and a simple dressing.

Switch up your basic salad with a pasta salad that has a ton of flavors and textures thanks to the al dente pasta and fresh, crunchy vegetables.

Consider opting for a kale salad full of fresh veggies, toasted sesame and sunflower seeds, and creamy avocado.
