Northeast Florida Vegetarian Society Potluck!

It's been a while, so join NFVS for a vegan potluck at Jax Health and Wellness! For this and most potlucks, we don't have a planned menu. And it somehow works out to a good balance. There's no theme, so it's up to you to bring a new dish/recipe, something from Native Sun/Whole foods deli, chips and salsa, beverage or fruit...as long as it's VEGAN -- no animal content or by-products. That way everyone can eat everything with no guessing involved.

Though some will be available, please bring your own utensils and dishes, etc. to cut down on the waste and cleanup. AND if you prepare a dish, please bring the recipe if you dare to share! We can make copies if you can't bring duplicates.


Potlucks are a good intersection of yummy sampling and sound nutrition. Hope you can make it!

    It was wonderful to celebrate my birthday with all my new special friends. This group of people are so caring and kind. I'm happy I found this group. It was great to see everyone and to enjoy all the great food. This group has some great cooks!

    Mix together:
    4 cups chopped broccoli
    1 small purple onion chopped
    1/2 lb or less of coconut bacon (phoney baloney-Native Sun sells it)
    1/2 cup dried cranberries
    1/2 cup golden rasins
    4 oz. sunflower seeds or 1 cup unsalted peanuts
    4 oz. slivered almonds
    Mix Separately:
    1 cup veganaise or earth balance mayo
    2 tab. red wine vinegar
    2 tab. brown rice syrup or any sweetner of your choice
    Combine one hour before serving, refrigerate.
    Enjoy!

    Thanks everyone for making yesterday such a yummy potluck success! And if you had one of those tantalizing dishes, please post the recipe/ingredients as a message in this "conversation." Looking forward to seeing you all again at an event soon!

    Excellent meetup, as usual. Thanks for setting it up Deb! And thanks for hosting the event Jon!

    Here's the link to the Fresh campaign that we just launched. Please check it out, possibly donate just a $1, and share with your friends. We need your support to make this happen. JAX needs a 100% vegan location for all kinds of food, fitness (with vegan instructors), and weekly farm-to-table dinner parties. http://igg.me/at/Fresh/x/3251609

    Sorry I won't be able to make this potluck. Since I cant announce it Sunday in person, I wanted to remind everyone about Vegan BINGO night at the Beaches Mellow Mushroom on Tues, June 4th at 7:00pm. Please see the Jax Vegan Drinks Facebook page for all the event details. We want to see all of your familiar vegan faces there! :)

    May 17, 2013

    • Deborrah

      We'll miss you today, Jessica! I'll make your BINGO announcement.

    I have 1 adult and two children joining me, but I can't seem to add "+3" to my reservation, help! :)

    May 13, 2013

    • Rosalie

      It's says I can not adjust my guests because the event is full :/

      May 13, 2013

    • Deborrah

      Eeek! The waiting list is activated, so don't know why it won't add guests to that. But I just increased the open slots, so it should work now.

      May 13, 2013

  • Gina P

    Deb, I think there's an RSVP option for guests that needs to be checked off when you edit this event. Hope this helps!

    • Deborrah

      Janet! We decided to do it in the Manatee-less month, so your request was perfectly timed. But you haven't RSVP'd yet for you and Joe. Please do, since space may be limited!

      May 9, 2013

    • Janet F.

      Deborrah, I RSVP'd but there was no place to say plus 1. Thanks for letting me know I had not responded. I thought I had. I appreciate you organizing a pot luck.
