Vegan Potluck!

As I mentioned yesterday, there was a vegan potluck picnic today for all the Atlanta vegan-folk--and it was pretty awesome.


All the food was incredible. Vegans really know how to cook, no?


This was my plate. My first plate, that is. I wish I could tell you what everything on here was, but I just remember how good it was. The thing in the middle, though--that's what I made.


It was a pretty simple recipe from Quick-Fix Vegetarian, the Black Bean and Rice Salad with Red Peppers and Corn. The name says it all--that's exactly what was in it, along with a chili-lime vinaigrette. It was pretty tasty...


This was my second plate. There were too many desserts there to try just one. So I tried this strawberry cream cheese pie made by Leigh of Raspberry Swirl, and this super-colorful pink lemonade cupcake, which also happened to be very photogenic (and the lemony frosting was to die for)!


I also got to meet Lori of Pleasantly Plump Vegan (who made a crazy good mac and cheeze) and Becky of Apron Strings (who brought some tasty tempeh nuggets with a tahini-miso dipping sauce). The other bloggers there were easy to spot--they were the ones with cameras sitting beside their plates! Hee hee. I got to meet some other really neat people, too. It's so nice to be around like-minded people when you can. Makes life a little nicer.


So... there was so much good food there that I ended up bringing a plate home.


Who wanted to miss out on the root beer cupcakes? The Chick-O-Stick cupcakes? The lovely pineapple upside-down cake from local vegan baker, Dulce Vegan? Or chocolate-chocolate chip cookies sandwiched with peanut butter filling? Wow--talk about sugar overload.

So... there you go. Many, many thanks to Ashley for being the brains behind this operation. I'm definitely looking forward to next time!

And what's about that shy amount of broccoli in the last photo? It made me laugh, the poor broccoli, surrounded by sweety sweets!

VeggieGirl said...

WOW look at all the vegan goodies!! I'm totally awestruck by the sweets, in particular ;0)

This is reason enough to move to Atlanta - YUM! Your black bean and rice salad looks amazing as well. Vegan meetups are the best!

I've been out of the loop with the meet-ups. Looks like a great spread! I can't remember, is there a listserv, or how can I know about the next one?

Tofu Mom (AKA Tofu-n-Sprouts) said...

WOW! What a great spread! And you got to meet other bloggers, how fun is THAT!?! Next time, everyone ought to just head to Seattle, OK?

Urban Vegan said...

You are so right--vegans really do know how to cook. I am jealously salivating.

So nice that you got to meet so many cool bloggers.

Melody Polakow said...

Wow! Look at that spread... what a great way to spend the afternoon.
