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!
