I love to showcase time and again that vegetarian meals can be delicious and bring lots of flavor to your every day dinner and even to parties. Once you take-care to select right ingredients and pair bold-flavors, chances are, your family will finish veggie dishes before anything else!

In my home, every party, I have to cater to all guest requests and special dietary needs. Since a lot of my friends are vegetarian..... I always make sure to cook some delicious vegetarian options so that no one feels neglected.

Not just vegetarians, vegetarian dishes everyone enjoys! I mean, veggie sides, appetizers, salads, veggie filling for tacos, or naan pockets........ all these finish MUCH quickly in my parties. This was a learning experience for me, really. I'm sure you can relate.

In my early days of hosting parties, all of veggie sides would disappear quickly and my vegetarian guests would end-up hungry. So, these days, I have a rule to double the "veggie cuisine", so that all can enjoy!

For all such feasts, I prep and plan everything in advance and keep few ready-to-use options in hand. Specially, for grill-outs, I prefer "veggie cuisine" using MorningStar Farms delicious vegetarian products. These provide a healthy option for my guests but still brings great flavor to dishes.

Today's Naan Pockets recipe is not just famous in my grill-out parties but also favorite of everyone in my family for a delicious Indian weekday dinner. 

Most, or all of these, can be prepared in advance: grape raita, sweet and spicy Curry Sauce, naan pockets..... And when your guests arrive, all you need to do is grill MorningStar® Farms Spicy Veggie Indian burger patties and veggies, assemble, and serve!

How easy does that sound?

Serve with cooling Grape Raita on side. Enjoy!
