A Delicious Vegetable Tian II and a Delicious Apple Pie

Continuing on from our pot luck yesterday at the home of Debera and Charlie Campbell, two other dishes that we had included Vegetable Tian II and an apple pie that had a delicious crust made from dates, walnuts, cashews and almonds.

Apple Pie

This apple pie was delicious and all vegan. It was brought by Susan Safranek.

Ingredients for making in a 9 x 12 glass baking dish:

Sliced apples to fill glass baking dish
2 cup of dates
2/3 cup walnuts
2/3 cup cashews
2/3 cup almonds
2 tsp vanilla extract
Cinnamon as desired
Raisins as desired


Blend dates, nuts and vanilla extract together in a food processor to achieve a sticky consistency. Press the blended crust ingredients into a pie pan. Chill for one hour.

Cook the apples, cinnamon, vanilla and raisins separately and put them in crust when cooled.

Vegetable Tian II

Debera Campbell made a delicious vegetable dish from vegetables that she picked up at a farmer's market while in Atlanta the previous week. She originally got the recipe for it from fellow ESLL Club member Charli Gordon.

Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of the vegetable tian, but I do have the recipe on two photographed pages. Some of the steps are inadvertently repeated on the second page. Oven temperature that Debera used was 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
