April Raw Foods Potluck

The Raw Foods Potluck Girls met yesterday for another off-the-charts, delicious meal. We didn’t choose a particular theme, but we decided to bring something we’ve been enjoying or have worked on lately. It had been several months since our last event, and we just needed to get together, catch up, and marvel at the beauty of raw food.

We started the afternoon with a Green Smoothie toast shared by Glenda, a new raw foodie friend. I love that she brought her Nutri Bullet already packed with kale and a variety of fruit. Convenient and brilliant!

Diane brought an original creation of Pate Stuffed Peppers. They were as delicious as they were gorgeous.

Dallas shared Ani Phyo’s “Salmon” Patties with Hollandaise Sauce. Made with her Sunny Dill Cheeze, carrot pulp, and dulse flakes, these patties were delicious smothered in the lemony sauce.

You can find this recipe in Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen.

I relied on one of my favorite vegan bloggers for a my contribution to our raw foods event.  Gabby of The Veggie Nook never ceases to amaze me with her raw creations. Her Raw “Baked” Fettuccini Alfredo is one of my favorites. Made with spiralized zucchini noodles and a creamy walnut-based sauce with a touch of nutmeg and cayenne, this noodle dish “bakes” in the dehydrator to create a deliciously comforting meal.

I used the straight blade of the Vegetable Spiralizer to make these cute little ribbon noodles.

The main course was delicious.

But dessert might have been even better. I made Gabby’s Raw Chocolate-Coated Key Lime Pie, which has been submitted to the Eat What’s Good Vegan Recipe Contest. You can vote for this incredible recipe here. It’s so delicious that I’m voting for it every day!

I’m not sure which of the three layers is my favorite. The date and walnut crust? The center chocolate layer? Or the light, creamy filling made with avocado, banana, and lime?

Dallas and Diane combined forces to create another delicious dessert.

Made with a chocolate truffle base from The Art of Raw Living Food, slathered in Diane’s strawberry sauce, and covered with sliced strawberries, this Raw Chocolate Strawberry Cake is now one of my favorite desserts.

It was a successful, delicious, low-key event. I hope the links are helpful in finding some great raw foods recipes and the pictures help to inspire your own raw creations. See you at Raw Foods Thursdays!

  1. You are honestly just the sweetest. I’m so glad you enjoy my recipes! I need to get to work on some more raw fare, I have been slacking! Hopefully the rising temperatures stick around, that should help :)

        What a gorgeous round-up of recipes, Heather!! And I can totally vouch for Gabby’s raw key lime pie. I’ve made is several times. I have also made her pumpkin banana mousse cake like a million times. I hope she wins for her raw key lime…I am heading over there to vote!! She is one talented raw foodie. :-)

  2. This is a genius idea!!! How fun =) I’d actually like to make all of these recipes! I have the Ani Phyo book so I will look it up! I will be trying the raw fettuccine sometime very soon. And I actually made the key lime pie this weekend haha ;p It is SO good! I love, love, love it =)
    I’m definitely going to have to start doing this on a regular basis with some of my veg friends. Looks like you guys had a perfect potluck!

    • Heather says:

      Wasn’t the pie wonderful, Kimmy??? I just HAD to finish the leftovers off last night. Oh darn.
      You should definitely do a veg potluck! I have learned so much from my friends. And it’s fun to bring non-vegetarians as well. Tasting is believing, right?

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, friend, fitness fanatic, foodie, high raw vegan, child of the King, and Mama Cat. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. And now I have another challenge ahead...I'm moving to New York City! I look forward to Living Raw Vegan in the City and sharing my experience with you.
