My in-laws, whom I respect dearly, are coming for Pesach. My FIL is a vegetarian (no meat, chicken, fish) (eggs yes), and my MIL is gluten, sugar, and many spice free....

Yes to G'bruckts

I can't begin to think of what to make...

Open to all suggestions, thoughts, or advice.

(If possible, please include recipes)

Thanks in advance. :-)

I make a lot of tortilla espanola. Its an egg and potato omelet that you make in a frying pan. https://www.bonappetit.com/rec.....anola I like it with fresh lemon squeezed over it. It adds a nice contrast in taste.

My in-laws do, but we don't... I'll have to ask. Maybe my MIL can make her own.

Trying to figure out what to make for FIL.... I feel more limited with his dietary needs.

He doesn't eat steamed, sauteed veggies.

OP, you might ask your MIL and FIL what they have eaten in past years on Pesach. It's possible your best bet will be to cook some meat or fish and some stuff with matza meal, like a matza kugel, or Pesach rolls. So, Jack Sprat won't have any animal or fish, and his wife won't have any gluten or sugar. They can both take what they like, and let others eat what they don't.

But here are some main course ideas that may work for everyone. (I'm assuming you are not restricted like those who only eat produce with a thick rind or shell.)

Vegetable soups (I like zucchini/potato with fresh herbs, also squash soup or minnestrone without pasta)
Veggie stir fry (our favorite is broccoli with carrots and shitake, sometimes cashews. Kale and red cabbage is also good.)
Salads
Any cooked or raw veggies -- asparagus, zucchini, spinach, beets.
Egg dishes -- frittata or omelette


Hatzlacha!

ETA:

Just saw this.

IMNSHO, ask them what they usually eat on Pesach.

For a gluten-free non-vegetarian, I'd make lots of basic meals. Grilled chicken with roasted vegetables. Grilled salmon with a salad. That kind of thing. We're not gluten free, and its what we do. If she eats potatoes, they make potato crackers, I forget the name, that aren't bad. They also sell excellent gluten free crumbs at Pesach. In a lot of ways, Pesach is a gluten-free dream come true.

Vegetarian is a lot more difficult. Does he do milk? You can do a lot of soups for him -- potato leek, vegetable, things like that. And eggs.
