Montclaire Vegan Meetup with Veggie Girl

Two weeks ago I participated in my first vegan meetup.

Since I became vegan about a year ago, I feel very isolated sometimes in among all the meat-eating family members and friends. So meeting vegans and going to vegan potluck was great – no need to wonder about the ingredients.

Plus it’s a fee therapy session to soothe my nerves after all the accusations of being “a freak” or just plain “weird”.

For the potluck brunch, I decided to make my version of Polish-style mixed vegetable salad. It’s my take on the classic that is sure to appear in one of my upcoming recipe books :-).

I have to say all the dishes were delicious. I especially enjoyed the roasted vegetable dish, the green salads and muffins. And vegan donuts were just to die for (even though or maybe BECAUSE I don’t eat donuts very often – I really enjoyed the donuts that were brought from a vegan bakery in Brooklyn (not sure which one).

Here are a few photos of the food at this Vegan Brunch Meetup:
