Vegan Potluck

My pen pal recently started a vegan group in her town. I decided to look if such a group existed in Houston. This is the 4th largest city in the US, so I knew there was chance of finding a group. I got lucky! There is a monthly potluck hosted by a local vegan group. I attended the potluck and was quite impressed with the turnout of ~30 people. I brought the vanilla cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World topped with a Nutella-like frosting. Instead of using Nutella in this recipe, I used Justin's chocolate hazelnut butter. You can see the cupcake on the left side, I marked one with a toothpick to grab it when the buffet opened. They were quite good and got nice reviews from other guests. I filled my plate with a tiny bit of everything on the buffet, even going back for seconds on the baked pasta, tofu scramble with black beans & tortillas, and flax crackers & hummus before picking up a mini slice of apple pie. :)



  1. Very cool! I hope you met a lot of nice people.

  2. It's an interesting group. We are going for a Mexican brunch next month. :)
