Q: We're going to the beach in a couple of weeks and one night my family has to cook for 17 people, including 3 vegans. I don't know what we'll have in the way of pots, pans, and utensils but I'm sure they'll be limited and not in great shape. Can you recommend some meals that will satisfy meat eaters and vegans?

Editor: Carolyn, I think immediately of a lentil stew like dal palak, easy to make with any equipment, and easy to dress up with grilled peppers and eggplant, or strips of steak, if people lean that way.
Readers, what else would you recommend?
