Need a relatively simple vegetarian entree that I can serve for a shabbat dinner for 25, can't have any dairy since it will be served as an alternative to chicken, and it has to travel well and hold well as it will be plunked down on a buffett for service.

THANKS! (Hi food52'ers!)

What about a riff on eggplant parmesan -- just make it without cheese? For example,

If omitting cheese, you might want to up the sauce a bit so it isn't dry.

I've made this (frequently) without the goat cheese and it's delicious:
This salad has no dairy:; nor does this:
and they can both be served as main dishes.

I faced this exact same conundrum one week ago and here is what I came up with, I believe this qualifies as pareve. But then I'm not Jewish, I just cook for Jewish holidays.
