Thanks in advance,
Appetizer: Slice and toast French bread, rub one side with a clove of garlic cut in half. Spread with Tofutti. Marinate roasted red and yellow peppers in red wine vinegar, olive oil, dried thyme or oregano, salt and pepper. Top bread with marinated peppers.

Entree: You've gotten lots of good ideas for this. Ratatouille (stewed veggies) would be great; it's even better made the day before, since the flavors mingle. It would be better served at room temp.

Vegetable: Salad with mixed greens, raw veggies and a creamy dressing.

Starch: I make a nice couscous salad with grilled veggies and a vinaigrette with white-wine vinegar. Can be served cold or at room temp.

And a beautiful fresh fruit salad for dessert - or brownies HTH.
