December 2012 Adventist INVSOC Potluck

For our December 2012 potluck, we joined with the Adventist Cooking Class end of year potluck.  I *would* say it was an unholy aligning of the planets to create the mother of all potlucks......well actually, that would be selling it short, there were over sixty people and THREE cheesecakes!!!  When the world ends in a few days, blame this gargantuan potluck :-)

The Seventh Day Adventists explain why they are Vegan or Vegetarian, and we test to see if they can make more Marmite :-)

Raspberry topped cheesecake.....

Mixed berry topped cheesecake (Raspberries, Blackberries and Blueberries)

Third raspberry cheesecake at the end of the third table! :-)

Recipe for the passionfruit cheesecakes can be found here , a step by step recipe will be added to the INVSOC website in the near future :-)  Essentially they are made from broken Nice biscuits for a base, and two cans of coconut cream, passionfruit pulp, sweetener and cornflour for filling.  The topping is made from berries, cornflour and water :-)

Thomas and Tim both explained why Seventh Day Adventists have a focus on healthy living (to be strong, fit and friendly to all who visit their weekly vegan cooking class!)

Russell's pizza :-)  In October, our potluck had THREE Vegan pizzas, a Russell made creation, Jordan's "Pepper Pita Pizzas" and The Unknown Vegan ordered a "Sinister" pizza to be delivered from Hell.  Three Cheesecakes this time, because good things come in threes.

Noelle's pies

Kerri's number cookies :-)  Adorable bowl, Jordan was secure enough in his masculinity to declare it "cute as a button", which Noelle seconded.

The biggest thanks goes to the clean up crew, who diligently worked at restoring the Adventist hall to its spotless glory.

Joel took a panorama photo show some of the potluck attendees :-)

Thank you to everyone involved with the Wicklow Street Seventh Day Adventist Church Vegan Cooking Lessons, and the Invercargill Vegan Society.  We look forward to future weekly Vegan cooking lessons starting in 2013 - if the presence of THREE cheesecakes within three metres of each other hasnt knocked out the planets soft passionfruit-y inner core! :-)

Noelle's Pecan Pie recipe

"Hi All, One of the lovely ladies at the Adventist dinner asked for the pecan pie recipe:

Pecan Pie
What you need:
1/2 cup raw sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons nondairy milk (I use soy or almond)
2 egg substitutes (I use flax eggs, see recipe below)
8 tablespoons vegan butter, melted (I use Olivani Avocado Margarine)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup pecans
1 9" unbaked pie crust
What you do:
1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees. Mix ingredients, except for pecans, which you layer on top. Mix comes out watery.
2. Pour into the pie shell. Place on a cookie sheet and put into the oven for 20 minutes.
3. Reduce oven temperature to 135 degrees. Bake for 20 minutes or longer.
4. Check, center should be slightly soft, but if it seems too watery, bake for 20 more minutes.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 40-60 minutes

Flax Eggs
Use this one for the pie
1 egg = 1 tablespoon ground flax seed + 3 tablespoons hot water (let stand 10 minutes)
(use: binding and moisture)
1 egg = 3 tablespoons ground flaxseed + 1/8 teaspoon baking powder + 3 tablespoons water
(let stand 10 minutes; use: leavening)"
