I want to have a picnic in a few hours. My picnic guest does not like beans or tomatoes or olives or cilantro. Obviously I am gluten-free which is why it's in this room. I'm also pretty broke. Come on PPK, plan a menu for me! Also if anyone else wants to plan their gluten-free picnics here that's cool too!

A few hours! Hm, I think my ideal picnic food that doesn't involve much prep might be stuffed grape leaves, hummus, fancy olives, and wine, all picked up at Whole Foods. If I had time to prep... maybe chickpea salad or tofu salad? on gf bread, massaged kale salad and/or maybe a quinoa salad. Some nice dark chocolate for dessert. Maybe socca at room temp. I don't know if your friend hates just whole beans or anything beany. I'm jealous you have picnic weather!

I think she's fine with pureed beans. I am trying to decide if there is a way to pack a gluten-free sandwich or wrap for a picnic that makes sense. The brown rice wraps will break and are gross cold. The Rudi's tortillas are too small and also will break if not warmed. There is really good local gluten-free bread here but I am wishing there was something with a better shape for a sandwich. I was thinking some sort of sandwich with coconut bacon maybe?

brown rice wraps are so finicky and fragile!
maybe bring the sandwich bread and filling separate and assemble there to avoid sogginess. if it's not too elaborate. or add your "wet" condiments like mustard or mayo or whatever there? coconut bacon sounds delicious!

Hmmm. Potato salad is a good picnic food. Maybe corn tortilla tacos, that could be wrapped in foil to keep warm and hold them together. Fresh fruit is always nice on picnics. Or some kind of whole grain salad like the quinoa one in Veganomicon.

With less of a time constraint, peanut butter bars topped with chocolate for dessert.
And for someone who isn't into tomatoes and beans, those would be tempeh tacos with a citrus-y cabbage slaw.
