I created a vibrant, fresh potluck menu for VegNews.
Next time you're invited to a barbecue, pool party or picnic, whip up one (or all) of these summery offerings. You'll eat well, even with a restricted diet, and the other guests will be wowed by how delicious vegan, gluten-free and allergy-friendly fare can be! (Click on the links for the recipes.)
Start the party out with a raw Pineapple Tomatillo Salsa. You can add avocado to transform that salsa into a fruity guacamole.
Here's a tip: Bring a hearty main-dish salad. That way, you'll be sure that you have something substantial that you can eat. This Middle Eastern-inspired salad is built around the filling base of brown rice and garbanzo beans.
Finish off your outdoor feast with frosted lemon cookies. They have a little hint of coconut flavor, too.
