View Full Version : my first raw potluck!!
10-21-2008, 11:16 PM
i just found out there's going to be a raw potluck in my town in about a week and a half. i'm so psyched!! i've never met any raw fooders in "Real life." Anyway, I'm stuck on what to bring - I'd like to do something special for it, but I pretty much stick to salads and green smoothies... i've made alissa's raw ravioli before, but that might be tricky to serve... any ideas?
also, i have a fp and blender, but no dehydrator.

Oh, that's sounds fun. I'm not much of a chef so, I'll let our other more qualified Rawbies give you some great suggestions :). Can't wait to hear how it goes. :)

Here are some thoughts ...
Bell pepper wedges filled with Jalapeno Burger as a Pate (not dehydrated)
Any Phyo's Mango Cobbler (you can find this recipe on line and it is fantastic)
Alissa's Indian Spinach Dip with veggies to dip
Hmmm, that's all I can think of off the top of my head. You don't have a Vita Mix or a dehydrator ... Right? I will ponder some more.

Two dessert recipes that always amazes even those who aren't raw are: Cheesecake and macaroons. Sounds like a fun time!!!

Gus's Rawlmond Joys take 5 min to make.
"Gus's Rawlmond Joys
1/2 c of raisins/dates
1/2 c of shredded coconut
1 T cacao
1/4 coconut oil
agave to taste
First blend the raisins/dates in the FP. add oil and shredded coconut. mix. Add cacao and agave. Shape into small bars and add an almond on top. You can eat them right away, but they are better if you can wait and refridgerate them for 30 min or more. enjoy! (makes about 12 bars) "
I serve the raviolis without the marinara.
carrots-sliced thin, diagonally
kale or some kind of green cut into long thin strips
red, yellow, orange peppers cut in thin strips
bean sprouts-save for top
Bragg/Tamari/Nama Shoyu (I use Bragg because we gluten-free. I think it's important to make it gf if you are bringing to a crowd that you don't know very well)
sweetener-I like stevia for this-it makes it very sweet.
Then add a generous amt of sesame seeds on top.
I took this to a raw potluck and the bowl was practically licked clean. My SAD CHEF anti-raw, incredibly negative and astonishingly unreasonable FIL (whom I love very much ) LOVES this and asks me to bring it for every occasion. It is the ONLY thing cooked and raw that I have EVER been able to get him to like. "

I like to bring pates sometimes--suny Pate, A.most Tuna, Mozzarella Cheese. All can be wrapped in romaie or collard, or spread on dehydrated crackers or celery.
I'm interested in a st; Louis Potluck. We have a rawfood potluck here in Columbia, MO that's going very well.

thanks for the ideas, everyone. i'm gonna test these recipes out - i have a week left before the potluck. any other ideas? :)
I just went to a raw potluck yesterday and made 3 hits. One of them was my own recipe but sort of like rawererin's nestle crunch bar. If you do a search you'll find it. I served it with a nut milk that I made extra sweet.
A winning combo -- almond milk and raw nestle crunch. :) No one could NOT enjoy that! Seriously.
