Vegan and Gluten-Free Broccoli Salad
2 heads broccoli, 1/2 red onion, a bunch of red grapes, 1/2 cup raisins--all chopped and mixed. Dressing is 1 cup vegan mayo, 2 tablespoons white vinegar, 1/2 tablespoon prepared mustard (I used "spicy brown mustard"), and a little sugar or sweetener to taste (I used Truvia). Mix, chill 2 hours, enjoy! Recommended: John Oliver's Last Week Tonight on YouTube during all the prep.
At our second potluck, M. introduced us all to Resurrection Rolls. This is a great Youth Group snack/teaching point. Here's the recipe, complete with irreverent interpretation.
Ingredients: 1 package of crescent rolls, torn into chunks; 8 regular-sized marshmallows; 1/4 cup melted butter; white sugar; cinnamon.
Directions: The marshmallow is Jesus. Anoint his body with burial spices (the melted butter, sugar, and cinnamon standing in for myrrh and frankincense). Flatten out a chunk of dough and entomb him completely, taking care to seal any cracks. Consign Jesus to Hell at 375F for 10 minutes (or follow package directions). Et voila! When they come out of the oven, each roll should form a hollow--empty--tomb. Best Love Feast ever.
Look at all these happy Easter people! P. is wearing the lei because it was her first-ever Easter egg hunt. It's the same set of plastic eggs with inspirational quotations and corny jokes, now filled with some of my surfeit of chocolate.
