Vegetarian and Gluten-Free Dinner Recipes to Cook With Friends?

(Image credit: Faith Durand)

Q: I’ve coordinated a weekly dinner gathering of friends for three years now. Each week we send out an email with the night’s dinner plan and a list of ingredients we need. Everyone claims an item or two and we make dinner together, drink wine, and eat. It’s great. Recently, some of our friends have developed increasingly demanding dietary restrictions. We want to be all-inclusive, so I am looking for easy prep recipes (no more than 45 minutes from start to finish) that are gluten-free and vegetarian. Bonus points if they are light on the dairy and eggs, or are dairy and egg optional.

Editor: Alaina, sounds like fun! Here are a couple recipes that fit the bill:

Baked Mushroom Risotto with Caramelized Onions
Bún Chay (Vietnamese Vegetarian Noodle Salad)
Note: use gluten-free tamari in place of soy sauce

Readers, can you recommend any vegetarian, gluten-free recipes that a group of friends can cook together?
