How to prepare a perfect Vegetarian Friday Dinner Menu

How to prepare a perfect Vegetarian Friday Dinner Menu

Hello lovely People!

Its Friday – I am in a good Mood 🙂

After a long and stressful week I love nothing more than to come home and cook a lovely more complex Dinner. While preparing dinner I love to light up some candles, pour myself a good glass of red wine and enjoy  some relaxing music to get myself into a weekend mood!

This is a full Vegetarian menu which doesn’t feel like anything is missing! However you can basically add anything you like – each component works so well with other dishes.

For a lovely Aperitivo I would suggest my amazing Morning After Drink with a twist – called Champagne 🙂 Always works for me and basically for almost every woman… just a small tipp! This is fruity and delicious – perfect to get yourself into a weekend mood!

To serve with the Aperitivo I would suggest my Hot Tomato Salsa as an Appetizer and combine it with chips or nuts.

Then for the Main Course I suggest this little Pasta Dish with my homemade Green Pesto.  You cannot imagine how good it is, its an all-time Italian Classic with amazing taste and super easy to cook. Soul-food which lifts your tired spirit for the weekend. For this Green Pesto I used:


  • 2-3 Cloves of Garlic
  • 2 TS Pine Nuts
  • 80 gram of fresh Basil
  • 40 gram of freshly grated Parmesan
  • 10 gram of freshly grated Pecorino
  • 100 ml Olive Oil

Mix everything together in a mixer and adjust with the olive oil to get the consistency you like. I use Salt & Pepper for seasoning, however I would wait until everything is mixed together first and you tasted it- since the Parmesan is very salty as well. I serve this recipe with Italian Penne because the pesto really sticks to this sort of Pasta.

To finish I suggest my lovely Vegan Chocolate Cake for Dessert or if you want to get into a more Christmasy mood prepare my lovely Swiss Christmas Cookies called “Mailänderli”!

Let me know what you think and I wish you a lovely start to your weekend!

xo Katie
