Another Fun Vegan/Vegetarian Potluck
Last week we had another fun vegan/vegetarian potluck in Longview. There were mostly vegan choices this time. A couple items were made so they could be served with or without cheese as the cheese was on the side. That was very nice. This was our largest potluck yet, 43 diners enjoyed a great meal together. I've heard a couple times that it was the best food yet. Most stayed to watch Forks Over Knives. Quite a few people who had seen the movie already said they got a little more out of it this time.
There were so many great dishes. As you can tell from my husband's plate above, it was difficult to try everything even if you just took a small portion of each. The plate filled up quickly. I know there were a couple things I went back to try again and they were gone like Rachel's portabello wellington and Felicia's tofu quiché.
Here's some of the items on the buffet tables:
Broccoli Salad with dried cranberries and toasted almonds
Vegan Caesar Salad
Massaged Kale Salad
Bean Curry & Rice
Rotini, miso, & sun-dried tomato salad
Ginger Carrot Beans & Rice
Vegetable Pasta Stir-Fry
West African Stew
Mushroom & Cashew Hummus
Carrot & Beet Celebration salad
Honey Beer Bread
BBQ Walnut Balls
Cashew Burger Casserole
Vegan Coconut Cakes
Vegan Coconut Lemon Cake
Peanut Butter Pie
Raw Caramel Smoothie
Some cute little coconut ginger balls
Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
As Lester said "They just keep getting better."
Thanks again to all the cooks and for everyone who came out.
