Tiki themed hors d'oeuvres for the vegetarian?

I'm throwing a tiki themed cocktail party and am trying to plan out the food. There will be lots of fruit and bowls of nuts, a cake for dessert, along with shrimp and some teriyaki chicken drumettes. Any ideas for a couple vegetarian appetizers? There will be so much fruit and sweet drink options that I'd like to find something on the savory side. Of course, many traditional items are meaty or fruity, so I'm hitting bakers block. Also, we'd like to not grill or have to cook during the party, so something that could be made ahead of time (or right beforehand) and served would be great.
