Vegetarian Meal

Hi all,

In a few weeks i'm cooking a meal for my girlfriend and her dad and stepmum. The stepmum is a vegetarian, so the meal is going to have to be meat free. Has anyone got any ideas for impressive vegetarian dishes? 3 courses please.

Cheers.

All the ones I can think of right now are more stewy and better for winter.
If I can think of any better ideas I'll post them.

It'll be important to know what type of vegetarian the mom is - completely vegan (no dairy or eggs) or just no meat products.

We just had a simular thread here last week, try to search for it. There was a lot of good ideas there.

The important thing during the meal promptly display sign "Save the plants, eat meat!"

This is an important issue. Find it out by any means, if you are not sure! (If dairies and eggs can be counted in, that would expand the possibility by leaps and bounds!)

Ratatouille can be served hot or cold. Cold pasta dishes are good, too. Does she eat fish?

You haven't said how formal or informal you want the meal to be!

Puddings - try something seasonal like a summer pudding, lots of berries around now - or what about cranachan?
