Tis the time of holidays and pot lucks.

We got a request from my sister-in-law for an early Christmas  
gathering and she asked for:
"please make something that is gluten-free, plant-based (no animal  
protein or fat) and low/no fat to share"

Huh??? I thought the idea was to share *food*. This request leaves out  
almost all tasty food that I can think of, except fruit and certainly  
everything that I would consider party/feast/festival foods.

My wife is thinking of some kind of tofu turkey. Shudder. Comments on  
this list centered on if you are going to have fake food, why make it  
look like real food, and I'm agreeing.

I can see why there were no medieval vegetarians in Iceland. This is  
however (I hope) just one meal.

Anyone have some good recipe ideas that fit this restriction? Perhaps  
something I might eat if this is the best that shows up? While I try  
to bring period recipes to such non-SCA potlucks, I'm open to both  
period and non-period foods considering how tight this restriction is.
