My weekend festivities included a Vegan Meetup Group Oktoberfest party at Linda and Rob’s house. The theme was German food, and many people brought vegan variations of German dishes. I was impressed again by the creativity and culinary talents of our group. I just barely managed to photograph most of the selections before they disappeared.
Bierocks – German “meat” pies
It’s not German, but it wouldn’t be a Vegan Meetup without hummus.
It must be getting colder outside. We had two soups: squash and potato leek. Also pictured is a delicious apple torte in the lower left corner.
Salads and sides: roasted beets (top left), bread, greens and seitan (right), and fruit salad with walnuts.
Linda and Josie made energy balls. I don’t recall what they’re made of, but they include dates and sesame seeds and are rolled in coconut. Sold.
Speaking of coconut, this German chocolate cake was spectacular, in both size and taste. I couldn’t finish a slice, it was so rich.
Several items not pictured above made it to my plate, including macaroni and cheese with caramelized onions, a seitan bratwurst, and sauerkraut.
