How about wild rice stuffed portobello mushrooms. You could even include
cranberries and nuts (if there are no nut allergies).
I try to accommodate as many food restrictions as I can when I'm running a
feast and even when having dinner guests to the house but at some point I
just have to say - sorry. I took a look at some of the vegan stuff I make
and it all has gluten. Or I go gluten free but not vegetarian. And then
low fat??? I'm with whoever said - give 'em a jug of water. Maybe I'd
make it fancy and go for a cup of tea. Herbal of course!
