    Default Vegetarian dishes to feed meat eater visitors?

    Also gluten free. I have entrees sorted:
    Stuffed mushrooms and stuffed capsicum with home made herb bread one night.
    Pumpkin and lentil soup with home made garlic bread the other night.

    I have dessert sorted:
    Crepes with banana and golden syrup and soy ice cream one night
    Blueberry and raspberry flan the next.

    The tricky part is that I want to stay away from pasta, because a year in and I still stuff up the gf pasta, although I have no problem eating it or serving it to dd, just not in front of special visitors lol.

    We will have white wine to go with it too, found one for $3.90 a bottle

    We have chickpea and vegie patties a lot which are always nice. DH loves them and he is a big meat eater.

    When I stayed with my vegetarian cousin he made the most delicious fried rice full of vegetables and eggs (if they eat eggs) the most surprising thing was the pumpkin in it (which I normally dislike!)
    =YUM!!

    I think what you have there sounds perfect already! I made stuffed caps the other night and couldn't eat the whole thing it was so filling. So with herb bread, stuffed mush & caps AND desert I think they will be satisfied.

    Maybe Cottage pie made with lentils, mushroom & rocket risotto, veggie moussaka ( layers of eggplant, tomato and ricotta), buy pizza bases for DIY pizzas ( including potato and rosemary; pumpkin, feta & baby spinach). Good luck!

    Sounds nice - can you do a mango/avocado/spinach/rice noodles and haloumi cheese salad for a 'light main'?

    As a meat-eater, I would eat most things you offered me, except for tofu because the texture grosses me out. I think this is a bit of an aquired taste so I'd avoid it.

    Are you able to do a risotto? That's gluten-free isn't it? A nice risotto would go down well. Like a mushroom risotto or something?

    Non-meat patties are nice too. Bean ones I find tasty.

    Some sort of gluten-free veg pizza?

    Bean burritos (gf wraps) or a bean chilli con carne & rice?
    Agree with the mushroom risotto idea (as long as cheese is ok?).
    Veggie currie & rice.
    Eggplant parmigiana.

    We're big meat eaters in this house & my DP happily eats all of these meals when I cook it, & isn't phased by the lack of meat.

    Another vote for risotto. My parents are vego and I cook for them often. I do a risotto with baked cubes of pumpkin, fresh sage or oregano, and chopped brie stirred through. Nummy!

    Also a nice easy one is vego fried rice served with a yummy vege curry.
