Ideas for Vegan, Nut-Free Snacks and Appetizers?

(Image credit: Andrea Bemis)

Q: I am trying to come up with vegan snacks that are also nut-free to accommodate guests that have allergies. I have been searching for a while and have yet to come up with something that sounds appetizing. These need to be good enough to feed to my non-vegan guests as well. Can you help?
