What's a good vegetarian compatible dish to bring to a party?

I've got a party to go to and I have to bring something the catch is it's going to have a bunch of vegetarians at it and I don't want to bring a vegetable platter. Please also nothing "Indian" because there's going to be tons of that there already. Also no nuts for allergy reasons. Bonus points for things that include coconut milk as I've got lots of it and it'll help keep me satisfied and not eating all the horrible soy based stuff.

Let's just go with vegan choices as I don't know what these people are willing to eat.

I do eat rice and potatoes at social functions, though not normally.

oops, I noticed that the recipe calls for margarine. Hopefully you can just use butter or something if that works better for you

(obviously, you'd need to change the broth to a veggie broth)

That pumpkin soup sounds pretty great, but I'm trying not to bring more curry to the event. I'm totally making that at home though.

I'm with Nance. My go-to is always seasonal fruit either alone or I'll add this great Marcona almond and fig "cake", just pressed figs and almonds, from Whole Foods and dark chocolate. Yes vegans can have dark chocolate just triple check the label :)

There's a vegetarian form of gelatin out there:)!! Good luck with the jelly! Mmm.

Yum! These all sound great. I don't think gelatin is vegetarian though! Too bad for them, because I am totally going to make some homemade jelly one of these days with fruit. *daydreams*

You didn't mention fruit; if not already spoken for, that's my default for all get-togethers since it guarantees one item I'll like.:-))

or make a thai coconut soup with sweet potatoes. It's good stuff if you're into coconut and starch.

Can you clarify what "kind" of paleo you are so I can help? Do you do dairy? Rice?

Chowstalker has an excellent vegetarian section. I don't know if they, or you, are open to cheese.... but they have some really tasty looking goat cheese stuffed baby peppers. I'd go to the farmers market and pick up some really good goat's cheese that morning for this recipe.

Are nightshades and dairy in your diet?

I make a casserole with grilled eggplant (slice and roast or saute first if you don't have a grill), roasted red bell peppers, caramelized onions sauteed in tons of pasture butter, whole-milk mozzarella, and a tomato sauce made with fire-roasted tomatoes (seasoned with garlic, lemon juice, herbs, etc). To me, it's a side dish, and my veggie friends go nuts for it!

I usually eat some protein right before I go out, since most of the time there isn't any at parties I go to - even when they're not vegetarians!

Chocolate Coconut mousse with Coconut milk. It sets in the fridge and is super easy:

1 Can Coconut Milk

A FULL 2 TBS High quality Cocoa (Nothing else in the ingredient list)

1 tsp Vanilla (YES, that much)

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

1/4 c or a big scoop of Almond or Hazelnut butter

2 Stevia packets or 2 tsp maple syrup

Blend and poor into fancy small glasses to let set overnight then top with freshly whipped cream.

Chop up some parsnips into little cubes and steam them. Sautee some onions/mushrooms/garlic/shallots/rosemary in coconut oil/butter and mash them all together. Use a bit more parsnips than other ingredients so it mashes up into creamy goodness properly. You can add a little coconut milk to smooth it out if you need. When you make it for yourself at home, I recommend adding in some bacon for flavor. You can also mash up some spinach in there.

I know you're trying to be compatible but I still don't know how strictly paleo you are...such as if you do dairy since vegetarians (and not vegans) are often okay with it. So this list is assuming that you're okay with dairy. I'm also still not sure if you're okay with starches from tubers or rice (some here are on board, some aren't). So I just came up with a list assuming that you're fine with it all.

Homemade yogurt with fruit

Curry soup with coconut milk and vegetables

Stuffed peppers with vegetables cooked in coconut oil or pastured butter

Souflees with vegetables

Fruit salad

Rice stir-fried thai style with spices, vegetables, eggs and coconut milk

Kale chips

Sweet potatoes with butter and/or coconut oil

Gelatin dessert with coconut milk and fruit

Spring rolls with rice paper and nori, eggs, avocado and cucumber

Eggplant dipped in eggs and fried

Fried green tomatoes

Calabacitas (if you do cheese) here (you can leave the cheese out if you desire)

Baba Ganoush here

You said you do eat rice at social functions you could make risotto. You could make Tibs (an Ethiopian dish) and use mushrooms instead of beef. here

the world is your oyster
