Ask Ina

I have one friend who is completely vegan. How do you handle this situation at a dinner party without having to cook two complete meals?

I agree that you don't want to make two separate meals- both because it's too much work, but also because you don't want the guest who's vegan to feel "other." I might make a meat main course and lots of vegetable dishes, including one more substantial dish, like a grain or rice, and every can choose what they like for dinner!
