[lauren] you just put the whole one in your mouth? [lauren] that’s a lot of dough at once
[john] it’s really dry. [lauren] don’t say it’s dry! [john] well if you ate a spoonful of peanut butter that would also have made a really tough dough [lauren] well you’re not supposed to put it all in your mouth at once, i don’t think. [lauren] hey everyone, what’s going on it’s lauren. [john] and john. [lauren] from hot for food. and today we’re doing an impromptu little video for you [lauren] because, um, we have to go to a picnic [lauren] more or less. and we have to bring some stuff. [lauren] so we were gonna show you what we’re making [lauren] and it’s pretty quick and easy, so we thought we just turn it into a video. [john] uh, you can do your picnic however you wanna do, [john] this is just kinda what we have lying around the house, [john] on our summer picnic menu, we’ve got [john] an easy sangria recipe, [lauren] we’re also gonna make some very quick wraps, [lauren] we’re also gonna make some lentil apple slaw [lauren] and cookie dough balls for dessert [lauren] soo let’s start with dessert because we gotta put those in the fridge for a second [john] good call. [lauren] so we are gonna start with a cup of peanut butter, [lauren] then add in some almond flour and vegan chocolate chips. [lauren] i’m actually just gonna add a little bit of sea salt [lauren] so cos i’m literally making this up on the spot, [lauren] i don’t know how much almond flour i’m adding in, [lauren] but it’s about double and a half what the peanut butter was. [lauren] so it’s like the consistency of cookie dough, [lauren] then roll it into small bite sized balls, [lauren] and then you can roll it in coconut [lauren] or you can drizzle melted chocolate on them, [lauren] whatever you like. [lauren] and you can keep them in the fridge until you go on your picnic! [john] so now we’re gonna make the fillings for our easy wraps, [john] the first one’s an avocado mash, which is just avocado, [john] lime juice, salt, pepper and cayenne. [john] for the other filling we’re gonna use a hummus [john] you can do it storebought or make it yourself [john] and then we’re gonna add sundried tomatoes, [john] and black olives. [john] these things are super easy to assemble, [john] you’re just gonna apread out your avocado or hummus, [john] on the avocado we’re gonna add fresh basil. [john] so now that you got your filling in place, [john] you can either roll them up, [john] or do quesadilla style. [john] i think the key here is the mobility, [john] you’re like going on a picnic, or going to the beach [john] you don’t wanna have like your hummus container, [john] and your guacamole container and all of these dips [john] and these are mobile, portable, everything’s wrapped up and good to go. [john] so it doesn’t matter if you..
[lauren] so you just grab a piece and eat it. [john] yea. [john] and it’s sharing. so instead of having some dips and hummus, [john] you’ve just got every, take a pre dipped and roll bite [lauren] i like this idea. [lauren] and of course you can do any fillings you want [lauren] as long as it’s easy to like, stick together like a hummus is [lauren] but it could be like an eggplant dip or whatever you want. [john] you could do a dessert one; a peanut butter and jelly one. [lauren] totally. [lauren] okay we’re gonna bring a salad on the picnic [lauren] and i’m gonna make lentil apple slaw which is a really easy recipe [lauren] from hotforfoodblog.com [lauren] here’s how it’s made [lauren] so start with some finely chopped cabbage, [lauren] then we’re gonna add cooked lentils, [lauren] diced carrot. diced cucumber, [lauren] sliced apples, [lauren] cilantro, green onion and pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds. [lauren] or both. [lauren] so we’re gonna make a quick dressing in a jar, [lauren] here’s all the ingredients: [lauren] olive oil, [lauren] lemon juice, [lauren] lemon zest, [lauren] apple cider vinegar, [lauren] vegan worcestershire, [lauren] agave nectar, [lauren] dijon mustard, [lauren] and salt and pepper. [lauren] so just shake it up in the jar, [lauren] and then pour it on the salad. [lauren] this salad actually benefits from being dressed a few hours before you’re gonna eat it [john] kay, our picnic is nearly complete, [john] we’re like, 20 minutes in, we’re ready to go. [lauren] i don’t wanna go, i just wanna eat everything here. [lauren] we gotta pack it up now [lauren] that’s a whole lotta thing which we won’t show you. [john] one more thing.
[lauren] one more thing. [lauren] sangria!!! [lauren] you know how to make that, it’s just red wine, [lauren] some juice or whatever, and some brandy [lauren] if you’re extra spicy like us, [john] some fruit.
[lauren] and some fruit. [john] sangria.
[lauren] so we’re just gonna, we’re just gonna make it real fast, [lauren] in these jars so we can take them on our picnic, [lauren] they’re sealed up with a lid, and then we’ll add ice in there, [lauren] and we’re done! [john] then we go [lauren] and then we go. [lauren] so we got two one-litre jars, [lauren] we’re gonna split a bottle of red wine between the two, [lauren] it’s about a cup and a half per jar, [lauren] then we’re gonna add one and a half ounces of brandy, [lauren] we’re gonna add apples, oranges, limes and frozen strawberries. [lauren] and we’re gonna top it up with fresh squeezed orange juice. [lauren] and just add a little bit of ice. [lauren] and there’s our picnic! we’ve got sangria, [lauren] a cool salad, [john] our easy wraps, [john] and for dessert, our cookie dough balls. [john] go easy on the sangria, man. [lauren] mm. [lauren] so we put some ice in there to chill it, it’s cold and ready to go. [lauren] um, you probably wanna pack up your picnic in like a cooler [lauren] picnic bag or cooler [lauren] just to keep everything chilled, that will be best especially for the dessert [lauren] which you won’t be eating till later, [john] can we try something before we pack it up.
[lauren] aand [lauren] well yea, i’m starving [john] me too. [john] i’m gonna try an avocado one. [lauren] so it’s really quick and easy, we got everything done in under an hour, [lauren] um, i mean we’re pros but [lauren] we made some of these up right on the spot so there you go [lauren] um, you can find the recipes linked in the description below, [lauren] aand if you’ve got any ideas you’re taking to your picnic [lauren] your vegan picnics, please let us know and share them with us as well.

  9. My kids and I consider ourselves picnic experts and those wraps looks super easy to make. We just made cookie dough balls on our channel too.

  10. Sangria without cloves, cinnamon sticks and anise is just not sangria! Maybe you could let some them soak overnight in a cup of juice or sweetened water?

  11. Love the simplicity! Where I grew up our idea of picnic food was a big pot of chickpea rice, we called it picnic rice, there's a way of wrapping it in a table cloth which makes it easy to carry, so good and stays hot for surprisingly long, I'll demonstrate it one of these days 😀😋

  12. i just had a vegan picnic with two vegan friends, I felt so cool and special, but I literally hauled all my containers of stuff like John was mentioning! love these ideas, wrap roll ups were so good as an omni and they look even better now 😄😄😄 bravo bravo!

  13. Lauren, how did your bangs grow out so fast? I swear there's videos where they're really obvious and then suddenly they're gone. HOOWWWWW

  14. can I get just like….an hour long gag reel of bloopers? Just you two shmutzing around and being goofy as fuck like in the beginning of your videos? Please do it. Such a good idea

  15. How long do you guys typically film for to make a video? A whole day? Half a day? It all depends? I love your videos & appreciate all of the time & love you put in to them. 😊

  16. Now this is what I want my picnic food to be like, Slaving away in the kitchen before a picnic defeats it's entire purpose LOL- Simple prep, basic ingredients we already have, & a mix of refreshing, nutritious, crunchy, salty & sweet foods YUM
