Vegan potluck dish for non-vegetarians?
I need a recipe or an idea for a potluck. I want it to be vegan, or at least without cheese because I will be eating it too. I need something that feeds about 10 people - small servings though because there will be 9 other dishes. What is something that will impress non-vegetarians? Also, it cannot contain any fake meat or tofu, my friends are scared of those ingredients because it is just so foreign to them, haha.

Chili. Just use more beans instead of meat. I make vegan chili (containing no tofu or fake meat) for my meat eating friends and they all adore it....they never save me any in fact....)

Let's see, for this time of year (assuming you're not in Australia or something), chili is always a crowd pleaser (I add corn & carrots, sometimes zucchini to mine to make it a bit more interesting & tasty), maybe roasted root vegetables with some seasoning, some kind of "cream" soup (spicy carrot/parsnip, pumpkin soup with dumplings, cream of broccoli or cauliflower...), curry or ratatouille with rice on the side, stuffed peppers, cold pasta with pesto, etc. Or a dessert is always good.
There's a couple recipes I'm thinking of from Fresh From The Vegetarian Slow Cooker that I've used as a dish to pass for picky omnis before. Most of the recipes in that book are vegan or easily veganized. Maybe you can get your hands on a copy of that before your gathering (check your local library if you don't want to or can't buy it).

How about a delicious Asian Noodle Salad? You can use soba or rice noodles, and lots of veggies (like shredded carrots, bok choy, chinese cabbage, snowpeas, thinly sliced red peppers etc) , with a nice asian-y ginger-y dressing, and maybe some of those fried chow-mien noodles thrown in for crunch. YUM!

We favor vegetables but like fruits that we use in salad such as tomatoes and avocados.

You could always bring the classic raw veggies and dip (I would suggest hummus).
That is a link to a blog called "Choosing Raw". There are a lot of raw vegan appetizers on that post!

Indian or middle eastern foods come to mind. Vegetable curry is good, potato samosas, hummus, falafals, baba ganoush etc.
