We're having a mini potluck in a few days and one of my friends is very allergic to nuts (including coconut products), eggs, dairy, and also can't eat gluten. Soy is fine though. My normal omni-friendly stuff right now seems to be nut or gluten centric so I'm a bit stumped (though probably a bit more by no nuts or coconut). My rough idea is some kind of chickpea tomato stew and roasted veges, and maybe some kind of fruit dessert, but I'm not sure yet. Any ideas?

It is summer here, so there are lots of nice summer fruit and veges!

For dessert, cut up fruit and melted chocolate to dip it in! Or soy ice cream and nut-free toppings.

I make a really good hot fudge. just melt all this together in a pan. It would be great for dipping or for an ice cream topping!

if your omni friendly dishes with gluten have pasta, what about getting some gluten free pasta? there are some really good brands!

1/3 cup brown rice syrup
1/3 cup soymilk
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

grilled polenta and veggies with pesto
tamale pie
pasta salad (brown rice pasta is great)
smoothies!
huge fruit salad with mint and orange blossom water

quinoa salad? make the roasted veg, chop and add to cooked quinoa with a light dressing? add beans, too?

pudding seams like a good dessert maybe? maybe a layered pudding, like a trifle without the cake bits? or make/buy some gluten free cookies/cupcakes and use that for the cakey part.

enchiladas? use corn tortillas, kale/potato filling - like the vcon ones?

Thanks all! Still undecided on a main (the others are doing them too anyway), but will probably do fruit salad with lots of strawberries and mint, and maybe chocolate pudding for dessert (or maybe chai flavoured? Who knows!). And that fudge sauce sounds like heaven so I'll be making that for something sometime soon.
