What about a giant baked sweet potato with butter and brown sugar? You could put some nice asparagus on the side, or roasted corn.

For dessert, you could do a chocolate cup filled with fresh berries or a cup of sorbet; I’m a big sorbet fan.

I have a few suggestions but not sure how Easter-y they are. Also, it makes a difference if your guest is vegetarian vs. vegan. I wasn’t sure so I’ll give you mostly vegan-friendly ideas but if your friend eats eggs & dairy, there are more choices, of course. (For example, eggplant parmesan without breadcrumbs or with gluten-free flour.) I would suggest shopping in a health food store or a Whole Foods as they’ll have the most options. I’m not gluten-free but I see a lot of these things in health food stores. 

Falafel. You can buy a mix in a box and it’s pretty easy to make. Just mix the ingredients and either fry or bake. You’ll need to check the label. Some are gluten-free; some are not. Serve with hummus and raw baby carrots for dipping, and a salad. 

Tofu and rice or rice and beans. Sometimes you can buy pre-prepared flavored tofu in packages at the health food store. Vegandad.blogspot.com has a lot of tofu recipes if you want to make something on your own. Soy sauce has wheat so you need to look out for that. There are gluten-free soy sauces.

Vegetarian chili

Black bean soup

Gluten-free pasta & tomato sauce. Gluten-free lasagna with tofu and vegetables.

Gluten-free mac & cheese if your friend eats dairy. 

Gluten free cookies and crackers for dessert.

His mother has cuppycake recipes for herself that are just as delicious as gluten cuppycakes.  I couldn’t tell the difference.

She can have ham as long as it’s not cooked with a sauce or beer with gluten.  Mashed potatoes are fine as well.  She can also have deviled eggs.  Just ask me and I’ll tell you.  Only thing you’d have to worry about is having a dressing available.  Usually his mother has to use plain oil and vinegar when she goes out to restaurants.

With cupcakes you use the same recipe as non-gluten free just using a gluten free flour. My mom and sister made some the other day and they tasted almost as good as normal cupcakes except they got dry too fast like within a couple days. But when they’re fresh-baked they are good 🙂
