you guys are something else. I can't believe all the replies I received overnight. This is especially helpful since the cookout is on Tuesday.
trumivir- I think your idea might win for dessert. Just call a big fruit salad dessert. It's refreshing and pretty, and americans get enough damn sugar without me providing a traditional dessert.
little butt- that recipie sounds really good. I don't know if I'll be able to pull it off for the cookout, but it looks like a good recipie to bring home and make when I visit on accounts of all the veggies. Us starving college students can't afford asparagus and red peppers and such. I wish I could because then I'd make it tonight.
CharityAJO; this is great; pasta salad is definitely more in the budget.
ceryna- yes, bring on the dip recipie!
michael and life2k- kabobs are definite possibility.
Again, thanks everyone for all your responses.

|Life2k||How about small veggies roasted like shiskabobs (sp?) with your favorite sauce spread over? My sister spreds barbeque sauce (veg*n) over them and they are sooo good.|

I would make a nice big pasta salad as a part of the meal. Cool, refreshing, and filling cookout fare.
For dessert.. How about picking up a couple tubs of sorbet? No cooking necessary.

|triumvir||You could make a big fruit salad for dessert. It would be vegan and nobody would notice. It would also be good for groups and isnt baked.|

I don't know if this would work for you, but I thought I would mention that I have successfully fed vegan spinach and artichoke dip to a party of omnis and received many compliments.
(I hope they were sincere!)
I'm an official Kitchen Klutz, but this is a pretty easy thing to make.
I can post the recipe if you like. ^_^

I have been put in charge of planning a cook out for about 15 people (I think about 2 others are vegetarians).
I want to try and make as much of the food as possible inconspicuosly vegan. A lot of side dishes (ie beans, watermelon, corn on the cob) are vegan already, and I know many others (such as potato salad) can be engineered vegan in a way that others won't know the difference.
Any ideas would be great; I also would like to do a nice dessert that once again people won't pinpoint as something vegan and isn't too difficult to make or possibly doesn't require baking as I have never successfully baked a single thing (I'm not kidding, and I've made a few attempts). Thanks in advance for any help.
