|Picky Boyfriend, but we're slack

My boyfriend is coming to my family Christmas thing. He's practically vegetarian and he's very picky about meat [edit: In that he doesn't eat it, most times. He'll eat mince,and sometimes chicken breast but other things REALLY gross him out] We usually do the turkey, roast vegetables, salads, pudding, kind of Christmas meal, with seafood as an entree. He won't eat the meat (but my brother's girlfriend is coming, she won't eat turkey either so we're having a nice chicken that I believe he'll try), and though he'll eat the vegetables I feel sad that that's not particularly special. Also my mother is concerned about oven space since the vegetables, turkey etc will be cooking for hours. He doesn't eat tofu or other fake meats.|
Edit the second: He's the one saying he'll be fine with roast potatoes and salads. I am the one wanting to accommodate him and asking him what he'd like that's special, and my mother is the one wanting to be a good hostess and make sure people are happy. Not him. Though his suggestions aren't 'acceptable' to her due to space and time and theme.
What's something 'special', and 'christmassy' that wouldn't be too hard to cook, that he could eat?
His suggestion was pizza. Would you like pizza for Christmas?
If you can't help me with either of those, what's your favourite Christmas food?
