I am cooking for a group of volunteers as a thank you for their time and effort. I am used to catering for gluten free, and vegan, but not a gluten free vegan. Does anyone have any suggestions for protein based buffet items to go with various salads and mini baked potatoes? Also any ideas for puddings? I can always do fruit salad with non dairy icecream, but was thinking of more of a treat?
Thanks for any help. smile

Assuming it's a hot buffet as you mention baked potatoes? Some ideas
Bean and vegetable chili (with guacamole)
Chickpea or bean burgers
Butternut squash and black bean hash (this one also works cold)
Almond milk rice pudding

Thanks, can def do a bean chilli, that would work.
I've never made rice pudding as I don't like it!

vegan mezze
Some of these have gluten but all can be substituted with gluten free to make the whole buffet suitable for everyone.

There’s a recipe somewhere for avocado chocolate mousse. Might be worth doing depending on the numbers.

Those mezze look fab, thank you, and would go well with a bean chilli too.

I've just googled that mousse recipe, and it looks as though it will completely hit the spot, thank you!

You can buy ready made GF felafel. Morrisons or Waitrose. Guacamole dip and houmous.
Lentil dhal. Really easy and cheap to make. Strips of GF vegan naan bread (Morrisons do one) and popadoms.

@gahwhatever thanks for the link for the vegan mezze. They look fab. DH is GF and DD is vegan so these look like a real treat.

Thanks also chopchop. Ready made felafel will be useful, as will gf naan bread.

Rice pudding is easy. To make it a bit more special, make it with coconut milk, sprinkle with Demerara sugar at the end and brûlée it

Marking my place for lunch ideas!
You could go down the curries route but chilli and other Mexican food would be great!

Thanks all! I am now feeling much more able to treat all my volunteers. smile
