I've got 3 people coming for tea tomorrow. One is a gluten free vegetarian, one is a vegetarian and the last will eat anything. What on earth can I cook?

You could make gluten free vegetarian pizza? (You can buy pre made gf bases)

veggie chilli or curry with rice?

Have you googled 'vegetarian gluten free recipes'?

outputgap · 29/07/2017 09:30

Veggie curry? Veggie chilli (quorn mince is gluten free). Tortillas usually gluten free. Spanish omelette and salad?

weaselwords · 29/07/2017 09:30

Risotto of some sort.

mushroom risotto

Curry is really easy to make gluten free.

I'd do Thai butternut squash curry with lots of random veg and maybe chick peas served with rice and naan bread for those that eat it. Barts Thai yellow curry paste is my absolute favourite.

Gram flour is gluten free so you could make onion bhajis/pakoras for a starter.

Mushroom risotto or some other vegetarian risotto.

Tacos! If you get corn tortillas they are gf and then you can do a whole load of fillings - roasted veg, halloumi, prawns, spicy black beans, chicken etc and serve with salsa, sour cream, cheese, salad bits. Everyone can help themselves to what they want and it works for everyone.

Sorry, I should have said I can't do quorn as it makes the 2nd person feel ill for some reason.

Linda McCartney Red onion and Rosemary sausages, mash and bisto best gravy?
Quorn spag bol with GF spaghetti?
Courgette or butternut squash risottos are good, but be careful which stock cubes you use - kallo are the best.

This is the base recipe I use for my yellow curry. It's ra staple in our house.

Add a few types of chutney (lime pickle, spiced aubergine chutney and sweet chilli sauce) on the side it's really popular with guests, veggie or not.

Planner curry with rice

HipsterHunter · 29/07/2017 09:38

Warm salad with hallumi.

Roast veg (peppers, onion, aubergine) with rad al hanoit. Dress salad leaves (like rocket and watercress) with lemon. Mix in chick peas and the road veg. Fry hallumi slices and serve.

Quorn makes me ill and I struggled as a veggie without it so I went back to meat eating the bacon called me back

Definitely the tacos idea is great or wraps GF. You can Mediterranean veg as well as meat option for the 3rd person etc. Yummy.

Sugarformyhoney · 29/07/2017 10:32

Quorn makes a lot of people poorly. I'd do a nice veggie chilli or curry as suggested or peppers stuffed with rissotto and mozerella with baby new potatoes and salad

Nice salads, veggie cheeses and gluten free bread.

SunnySkiesSleepsintheMorning · 29/07/2017 10:35

Look at Ottolenghi recipes for some nice salad ideas.

My fave veggie is cauliflower goulash.

You need to feed three.
1 medium cauliflower
1 onion, red
2 tons of chopped tomatoes
1 red pepper
(Other veg if you like including mushrooms, courgette et c.)
100g vegetarian hard cheese ( parmesan is not veggie)
Garlic, nutmeg, salt, pepper, paprika, oregano
A little red wine

Chop the veg, divide cauliflower into bite size florets.
Fry onions for a few minutes, add cauliflower and red pepper. Fry until slightly brown.
Add garlic and wait till you can smell garlic. Add red wine and let it simmer for a few minutes. Add chopped tomatoes and season to taste. Let it simmer on a low heat until the cauliflower is al dente. Take off the heat.. Stir in the grated cheese and some extra virgin olive oil. Serve.
I serve this with new potatoes tossed in some olive oil, lemon juice and zest, sea salt and with either thyme (best) or rosemary (perfectly acceptable). But it also goes with rice.

You can prepare the goulash in advance- a few hours rest lets helps the flavours come together.

someonestolemynick · 29/07/2017 10:48

*obviously 2 tins of tomatoes unless your guests are super hungry. Grin
