Comfort and whenever food for vegetarians

Dear fellow CHs, I have dear friends with a child in hospital. Please help me come up with vegetarian comforting eat-any-time food to bring them. They do eat fish but not meat. I would like to bring them food that is good whenever they get to it. I know you will guide me well.

      Great ideas, thank you, appreciate it. I am in a fog, great to have other CHs thinking for me.

    2. Mac N Cheese?


      Mashed potatoes and gravy?


      Ice cream?


      Cookies (chocolate chip, peanut butter, etc.)

      Cheese pizza

      McDonald's Filet-O-Fish

      1. Hummus with pita/veggies, olives
        Salads as mentioned above -- bean salad, rice noodle salad, quinoa salad
        Grilled veggie wraps
        Veggie summer rolls
        Mushroom barley soup (if there is a way to heat it)
        Cheese, cracker, and fruit platter

        1. This kale salad with tahini dressing is spectacular and not only keeps well, I think it gets better the longer that it sit in the fridge.

          This recipe includes nutritional yeast in the salad dressing, which is an ingredient that is both comforting and full of B vitamins - so important when you are under stress.
