  1. Fruit
    Chocolate tofu mousse - do a quick search for the recipe (Food Network - 'mooless pie') but it is delicious
    Some sort of fruit crumble/crisp/cobbler

      If you're feeling lazy-ish and have a whole foods nearby...they have a vegan chocolate mousse that is remarkable.

    2. I would go with a poundcake recipe made parve (use nondairy margarine) and grilled, with pears in honey syrup alongside. No one will miss the whipped cream.

        Grilled pineapple would be good with that poundcake too.

      2. Rice krispie treats (just make sure you get kosher marshmellows, if they care). Watermelon, tofutti and soy delicious fake ice cream or sorbet. I'm a big fan of soy delicious.

        1. Fresh strawberries macerated in balsamic vinegar. You can serve whipped cream on the side for those who aren't kosher.

            that's actually one of my favorite desserts- try it with marscapone- even better than whipped cream IMO! just looking for something different- thanks.

          2. Grilled fruit skewers -- some chunks of pineapple, banana, peach, brushed all lightly with a nice glaze -- I'd use something that echoed the main bbq sauce a little -- maybe a bourbon and vanilla glaze if you used a bourbon bbq sauce. (Note, I am assuming northern style 'cook out' bbq, not the slow smoke style).
