My favorite pot luck recipe is super simple and well loved. I saute a diced onion (in my rice cooking pot) until it's translucent. then I add raisins and brown rice, and saute til the rice changes color (more the opacity than color) (it's color change is much clearer with white rice. the recipe is great with white rice too. it also works fine with soaked well drained rice of either sort). then I add enough homemade chicken stock to cook the rice plus a smidge extra for the raisins, and cook the rice like normal. (sometimes, I pop in a frozen thing of stock from the freezer and make up the rest of the liquid with water). add salt and a little extra butter or olive oil at the end. yummy, easy, and super healthy.
I totally second hummus.
bread sticks with homemade ranch dip (or homemade green goddess?) carrot sticks would be better but if they won't eat them... it's got probiotics, protein, some healthy fat to keep you full and digest the vitamins, and super tasty.
I don't know, most of the people I do potlucks and stuff with want food to be tasty, but also really healthy. not all of them though... but everyone likes the rice pilaf stuff and hummus.
