Hypothetically speaking, lets say you were going camping this weekend and were tasked to produce dinner for 11 people one night. Half of those people don't eat meat. One has a bunch of food allergies, including wheat and garlic, but she says if worse comes to worse she can make her own stuff.
And, all you have are cheap camp stoves.
Any ideas off the top of your head? I could go the easy route and raid the middle eastern store down the street and do hummus and filafil and pita, but I'm not sure.
