Recipe --vegetarian for 25 people

I'm looking for a recipe to use as a main course for a party.
Any ideas??

    1. If your vegetarian friends eat cheese, I'd suggest a vegetable-based lasagna. I have this planned for a family gathering coming up. My recipe calls for ricotta, spinach, tomato sauce and some other flavorings. It can be done ahead of time and reheated.

      Or how about a vegetarian chili, with beans, vegetables and some nice spices? The revised Joy of Cooking has an excellent recipe for Wild Caribbean Chile (or something like that) which combines beans, tomatoes, orange zest and juice with lots of spices. It keeps well and is another good do-ahead dish.

      1. How about portabello tacos (with flour tortillas) and pico de gallo. Chips and guacamole and black bean dip as accompaniments. Nice with homemade margaritas, champagne or wine, beer...

        1. A friend of mine served a very good butternut squash lasagne at a party last fall that ended up in my regular rotation. Its a great and unexpected variation on lasagne. It could be multiplied very easily and made in advance.

          1. Check out the recipe for nutballs from the Vegetarian Epicure. Carnivores love them too.
