    Default Allergy friendly recipes please

    I have a family member comming to visit next week who seems to be allergic to everything bar air.
    I am trying to come up with a couple of menu ideas but am seriously stuck and running out of time in between vacuming over and over again to avoid flairing up pet allergies/asthma.

    She is allergic to:
    Eggs
    Shell fish
    Peanuts
    Dairy
    Wheat

    and to top it off she is a vegetarian.

    Any ideas would be greatly appritiated!

    - Stir fry? You can ask if she eats tofu or tempeh and put lots of veggies, get some Tamari ( wheat free soy sauce) and use either rice or rice noodles
    - you can buy gluten free pasta and make a roasted cherry tomato/eggplant sauce
    - roast pumpkin and beetroot salad
    - any salad with veggies really!
    - falafel kebabs with rice mountain bread and Greek salad ( minus the feta!)
    - lentil or veggie soup
    - chickpea or veggie burgers
    -tofu/tempeh and veggie kebabs
    - vegetarian moussaka
    - tacos with beans
    - guacamole/hummus/baba Ganoush dips with rice cakes, corn chips, gluten free bread

    I have asked her for suggestions but havent heard back yet and I need to do my grocery shop tomorrow (we live out of town), I think she is worried about 'imposing'

    She will be staying for a couple of days so I assume 3 meals a day, I think I will be taking her out to eat as often as possible though!

    I'm sure she will just eat a lot of fruit and veg like we do as we are all of those things 'free' have a stop around the health isle in ur Coles or woolies, if ur stuck maybe u culd just go shopping once she arrives, you may just learn something new! It's an entirely new and extremely healthy world!!

    Thank you everyone for the help!

    I ended up finding a few nice vegan recipes and eliminating the wheat.

    I even found a recipe for vegan pancakes which i used gluten free flour for and they turned out great, she was stoked as she has NEVER eaten a pancake before!

    Once I found a few options it was kind of fun cooking with a challenge
