For us guys, a successful night out involves great company, hilarious stories, and of course, some alcohol and delicious pulutan. But what do you do about the last two when you’re watching your waistline?

Here's what: Opt for low-fat beer or healthier (at least, that’s what scientists say!) wine, and go for meat-free munchies like these easy-to-do meatless dishes:


1) Garlic Butter Mushrooms

Sauté button mushrooms in butter and minced garlic, and add a tablespoon of liquid seasoning. Sauté for another two minutes, and serve with chopped parsley. Easy-peasy.

2) Baked Tofu Chips

Slice two blocks of tofu into very thin pieces and layer them on a greased foil cookie sheet. Mist the slices with some cooking spray, and bake them at 250-degrees Fahrenheit for about 25 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and crisp. Season them with a mix of salt, Spanish paprika, onion powder, black pepper, and cayenne powder.

3) Vegetarian Pizza Rolls

Roll out your pizza dough into a 12-inch circle, and top it with grated mozzarella cheese, all-purpose cream, chopped sun-dried tomatoes, sliced button mushrooms, and sliced fresh basil leaves. Roll it up as you would a lumpia, and place it on a well-greased baking tray. Bake it at 375-degrees Fahrenheit for eight to 10 minutes or until the top turns a nice light brown. Sprinkle it with dried basil, grated parmesan cheese, and dried chili flakes.

4) Grilled Vegan Skewers with Homemade Barbecue Sauce

To make your marinade, dissolve some peanut butter in water, then add soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, and sugar. Bring the sauce to a boil, then simmer for a few minutes until it thickens. In a skillet, sear some chopped gluten steaks (a.k.a. seitan) on all sides until crisp, skewer them onto barbecue sticks, and spoon the marinade over them. Grill the skewers on each side until charred, brushing them with the sauce frequently. Serve your vegan barbecue with the extra sauce on the side.

7) Crunchy Vegetables with Mango Yogurt Dip

For the batter, sift all-purpose flour and corn starch in a bowl and add salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. Gradually add a cup of cold water and one egg, and whisk them all together until all lumps are gone. Meanwhile, slice thinly some cauliflower, broccoli, potatoes, carrots, and onions, drop the vegetables into the batter, and deep-fry them until they’re nice and brown. Serve it with a mango-yogurt dip, which you can make by pureeing the flesh of a mango in a blender and combining it with a cup of yogurt, Dijon mustard, honey, and turmeric. Season the dip with some salt and top it off with chopped mint leaves.
