How about lasagne? Last April my daughter got married and had her reception catered with a lasagne dinner. Some of the guests (me included) were vegan and/or gluten or lactose intolerant and couldn't eat the regular lasagne. I made a lasagne using a recipe I found in Dr. Neal Barnard's book "Food for Life". The only change I made in the recipe was using gluten free noodles. The recipe is on pages 262 & 263 of the book. Tofu is used in place of meat and cheese. Use nutritional yeast in place of grated parmesan cheese. Serve with a big mixed green salad and whole grain bread.
My daughter who is decidedly NOT vegan has asked me to make both this recipe and black bean chili because she loves them despite their being vegan! After the wedding one of the guests for whom I'd made this dish asked if there was any of the lasagne left that she could have because she liked it so much.
PS For dessert how about a vegan "ice cream" from So Delicious brand? They come in a wide variety of flavors and are fantastic. I get it at Whole Foods grocery store.
