Meat, fish, cured meats... We often tend to enjoy wine in the company of appetizers or dishes based on foods of animal origin. Here then, five vegetarian dishes to pair with the best wines .
1. Vegetarian pizza
To accompany your vegetarian pizza, choose a dry white wine , such as Pinot Bianco or Chardonnay , which with its mineral and fruity notes goes very well with grilled vegetables.
2. Vegetarian stew with seitan
Dishes that simulate those based on meat can often be approached in the same way as the original dishes, the flavors being similar. To enhance your seitan blanquette, green light for white wines such as Chardonnay and Viognier , but also Gewurztraminer , with its incredible aromatic palette, can give great satisfaction.
This sunny dish calls for a nice red wine. We advise you to avoid wines that are too concentrated and aged in oak barrels, and to choose lighter wines such as the young, velvety, rich and balanced Cabernet Franc .
4. Vegetarian lasagna
To get to the heart of the matter, choose a lively and taut white wine like a Sauvignon Blanc which reveals its most beautiful expression. Again, a Chardonnay deserves a place on your table. Its mineral and fruity notes will surely enrich your vegetarian dish.
5. Soy burger
To close our chapter of the day, we end with a good soy steak burger . The latter first requires a dry white wine, such as Chardonnay, Viognier or Sauvignon Blanc.
