Looking for a holiday dish (preferably a dessert) that is gluten free and doesn't contain nuts, eggs or dairy.

I am going to a holiday potluck party next week. Several guests are celiac and so I was thinking of bringing a gluten free dessert, but I have just learned that the host is also allergic to nuts, eggs and dairy. Any suggestions on a dish to make (preferably a dessert) that would avoid all of the above ingredients? Thanks for any and all suggestions! :)

This is a difficult one. A nice big basket of various fruit is one option. This http://food52.com/recipes... , or this http://food52.com/recipes... might be another option.

How about a sorbet? With fresh fruit!

Pears poached in red wine? Couldn't be easier.

Pomegranate Gelée:

Also, along the lines of the poached pears, you could do roasted fruit. Halve apples at the equator, scoop out the seeds, generously fill/spread with a mix of chopped dried fruit, shredded coconut, cinnamon, and some coconut oil to mush it all together, then drizzle with maple syrup and bake.

Baked apples with brown sugar, raisins, baked in cranberry juice. So pretty. Could add a little rum. Usually I add butter, could you use coconut oil to add a little mush it all together as above recipe?

I made this pear terrine for Edible Vancouver recently- its just pears, brandy and a bit of butter and sugar, although the butter and sugar could both be easily omitted to still great results! Or you could use maple sugar? Delicious! http://onlinedigeditions...

I made a collection of fruit desserts from the site. Some that are seasonal and looked good: http://food52.com/recipes..., http://food52.com/recipes..., http://food52.com/recipes.... I am going to try out a recipe that I thought of as I tried to figure out an answer to your question. I'll post it if it works out.

Vegan chocolate pudding--made with silken tofu, melted chocolate, and a little milk substitute to smooth it out. It goes in the food processor (or just use a whisk and a good, strong arm), and you can use liqueur or just vanilla to flavor it. It tastes like the real thing and is super easy. Put it in little mason jars, chill, and then top with the pomegranate gelée mentioned above, allowing it to set in the fridge. Serve sprinkled with pomegranate seeds.

Wow -- these suggestions are all great! I really like the idea of the dressed up roasted apples. And I'd forgotten all about the Genius chocolate mousse. Also that pear terrine looks really interesting. Thanks again for all of these creative and delicious ideas -- so appreciate everyone's input! :)
