The next children's birthday party is sure to come. In order to be able to offer the kids varied, fast, vegan and delicious snacks and finger food, we present 5 delicious vegan recipes below and give you a few great tips for a successful party with children at the end. Recipe ideas that are fun and combine a healthy vegan diet.
Fast vegan party snacks: Our delicious recipes
The prejudices against vegan nutrition are great: Many people think that the recipes are too boring and that vegans always eat the same thing anyway. For the next children's birthday party, our delicious dishes will ensure that your guests will be amazed at how creative vegan cuisine can be. You will already have most of the ingredients at home anyway or you can quickly get them in the supermarket. Your party is sure to be a complete success and will make your little guests want more tasty vegan food and finger food.
Pineapple fries with raspberry ketchup
- 10 servings
- Preparation: 15 minutes
- 750g pineapple
- 400 g frozen raspberries
For the delicious party snack, first cut off the skin of the pineapple and remove the dark eyes. Then you divide the pineapple lengthwise into 1 cm thick slices and then into sticks up to 10 cm long, which then look just like real fries. You simply puree the raspberries. If they are too acidic, you can add a little powdered sugar or even better, sweeten with stevia. Form bags out of bread paper and place the fries in portions. You serve the “ketchup” in a small bowl.
Tortilla rolls à la casa
- 10 servings
- Preparation: 15 minutes
Tortillas are incredibly versatile and a delicious finger food. Today we want to make quick vegan rolls with a couscous and broccoli filling. But basically there are no limits to you. You can let your creativity run wild with the filling and also use super leftovers from the fridge.
- 5 tortillas
- 150 grams of couscous
- 350ml of water
- 150g broccoli
- 1 handful of herbs of your choice
- 1 tsp salt,
- 1 pinch of pepper
- juice of ¼ lemon
Cook the broccoli, which has been broken into florets, in boiling water for 5 to 10 minutes and remove the pot from the heat. Take out the broccoli and mash it with a fork (you can also use a hand blender). Add the mixture to the water together with the couscous, herbs, salt and pepper and let the couscous swell until all the water has been absorbed. Spread the tortillas side by side and spread the couscous mixture on top in a thin layer. Roll up the tortillas and cut off finger-thick slices at the end. To prevent the rolls from falling apart so easily, you can also poke toothpicks through them. The healthy sushi becomes a popular party snack as finger food. A tomato or avocado dip goes great with it.
Vegan puff pastry sausage party snacks
- 10 servings
- Preparation: Bake for 10 minutes plus 20 minutes
- 6 vegan sausages
- 4 tbsp cranberries from the jar
- A packet of vegan puff pastry
- 2 tsp soy sauce
Prepare the six sausages according to the instructions. You can usually do this in the pan or in the oven. Spread out the puff pastry and spread the cranberry jam on it. Cut the sausages into small pieces and spread them out on the puff pastry as well. Roll up the puff pastry and brush the outside with the soy sauce. Cut the roll into slices and place them on a baking sheet. Now put the whole thing in the oven and bake at 180 degrees for about half an hour. Yummy!
Alternatively, you can also punch out small round shapes from the puff pastry, fill the middle and press upwards like a candy. It looks particularly pretty, goes with every party and is sure to delight children.
Mushroom Sesame Potato Balls
- approx. 40 balls
- Preparation: 15 minutes plus cooking time
- 250 g mealy potatoes
- 150 grams of mushrooms
- 2-3 tbsp flour
- 1 tbsp parsley
- 1 tbsp + 3 tbsp white sesame seeds
- breadcrumbs as needed
- 1 tsp salt
- Some sunflower oil
Boil the potatoes in their skins until soft, then peel and put through a potato ricer. Clean the mushrooms, cut very small and sauté in oil. Knead all ingredients (only 1 tablespoon sesame) into a dough so that it sticks well and does not fall apart. Let the balls rest briefly, roll in breadcrumbs mixed with 3 tablespoons of sesame and fry in a little oil until golden brown. A soy yoghurt dip with lots of herbs or a homemade basil pesto complements this quick finger food wonderfully.
Tofu satay skewers with Indonesian peanut sauce
- 10 servings
- Preparation: 30 minutes
- 500 grams of tofu
- 2 red and 2 yellow peppers
- 2 apples
- oil for frying
- 200 ml coconut milk
- 5 tablespoons peanut butter
- 2 tbsp + 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 tbsp orange juice
- 2 small onions
- 2 tbsp agave syrup
- 1 pinch mild curry powder
- juice ½ lemon
First cut the tofu into 1.5 cm cubes and marinate it in orange juice, 2 tablespoons soy sauce and curry powder for 2 hours. Also cut the peppers and apples into 1.5 cm pieces. Skewer the tofu, peppers and apples alternately on skewers and brush them with a little oil. Place them on a baking tray and bake them at 180°C for about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut the onions into fine cubes and sauté them in a pan. When they have nicely colored, add the coconut milk, agave syrup, peanut butter, 2 tablespoons soy sauce and lemon juice. Let everything boil up. You can serve the sauce warm or cold with the skewers, which are also warm or cold.
By the way, you are very flexible with the vegetables. Alternatively, you could use small red onions or zucchini slices. Pineapple, mushrooms or mini corn also go well with it.
At a children's party, in addition to a healthy diet, fun is of course particularly important
We have already provided the little rascals with food. Now it is important to entertain them as best as possible, because a boring children's party is not possible. You could already set a theme for the party in advance. Let's take pirates as an example. All activities and games should now revolve around this theme.
The hunt for the lost treasure
A game that kids can play both indoors and outdoors is called Treasure Hunt. Here you create a small treasure map with clues in advance. Of course you have hidden a little treasure in an unknown place in the apartment or in the garden and the kids have to find it using the map.
Feeding the prisoners
Of course, pirates also take numerous prisoners who need to be cared for. Two children sit in each chair. The child in front is the prisoner and gets an old jacket (which can also get dirty) hung upside down. The child sitting behind him (the minder) slips through the sleeves and starts grabbing all sorts of food on the table in front of them and feeding it to the prisoner.
This game can also be organized as a competition, so that two teams always play against each other. The team that eats everything the fastest wins. Further rounds follow in KO mode until the winner is determined.
Small gifts increase friendship
If you do small competitions at the children's party, the little ones will of course be happy about a gift. For example, instead of giving away some pointless item, you could give away our beanies or a scarf .
Our soft beanies and scarves are all made from GOTS-certified organic cotton, which perfectly protect against the cold and are very comfortable to wear.
