Summer Potluck

BBQ Sloppy Jacks


  • Canned jackfruit

  • BBQ sauce

  • Buns

  • Toppings (suggested- slaw, vegan mayo, tomato, grilled red onion)

Crockpot- Slow cook jack fruit on low with the bbq sauce and a little bit of the juice it came in. Once easlily shreddable, its ready to pile onto the bun! (2 hrs)

Stove top- Sauté jackfruit with a little of the liquid it came in or just some water and then cover to allow it to soften. Then I just shred it by stabbing it with a spatula and then turned off the heat and mixed in as much BBQ sauce as I wanted and piled it onto the bun with toppings!

Raw Vegan Lime Cheesecake


  • 3 ½ cup soaked raw cashews

  • 2/3 cup lime juice

1. Add crust ingredients to food processor until it is at a consistency that you can press it to the bottom of your spring form pan.

2. In a highspeed blender, add filling ingredients.

3. Blend it until completely smooth!

4. Once you have pressed the crust onto the spring form pan, you can pour all of the filling over the crust. Freeze over night and allow 30 mins to thaw before decorating and serving!
