I'm hosting a number of vegetarians for Christmas this year and figured I'd try to do a fully vegetarian holiday meal for the first time. What do you think of this menu? Is there enough protein and is it otherwise well balanced? Should I add another dish? I know it's not the most exciting menu, but there are a few non-adventurous eaters in the group and I don't want to scare them too much.

Pre-Dinner Noshing:
- spiced nuts
- olive medley
- white bean dip with harissa

Dinner:
- quiche (tomato, roasted red and green pepper, broccoli -- all made with gouda and white cheddar)
- mashed potatoes and mashed Brussels sprouts, swirled together
- potato gratin with chives (or maybe a sprinkle of red paprika)
- caprese salad
- oven roasted cauliflower and broccoli
[Possibly also a salad of roasted red beets, chevre and green lettuces, but I think maybe not necessary with the caprese salad]

Dessert:
- cheese plate (Cantal, Tomme de Savoie, Ubriaco) with homemade crackers, pears, apples
- yogurt panna cotta with strawberry / ginger compote, garnished with mint leaves
