So I've been a sous at a private country club ofr the past five years. We had a pretty large budget and got to play with all types of expensive stuff. We also did nearly zero vegetarian dishes because, well, our clients were seafood and meat and potato types.
I moved to a new location and just got a job at a private highschool where I am in charge of dinner for around 60 to 80 people every night.
My problem is, we have to have 1 vegetarian entree option for every meal.
So I've been suffering to come up with vegetarian entree ideas. I can throw salads and salsas and casseroles together all day long, but when it comes to a more "entree" type option, I'm suffering hard.
So I'm looking for ideas or resources that could give me some ideas to play with.
Keep in mind, this is a buffet, not plated meals. And time is as always a precious resource. I don't have hours and hours of prep time to devote to one dish.
Thank you in advance for any ideas and suggestions.
This has been a great community for me so far, and I respect anyone willing to take thier time to help out a fellow chef.
