Great vegan meet-up Saturday evening with some new faces and some non-veg people in the group (I love people who don't mind coming to a vegan potluck even though they aren't veg). Rachel blogged about it here? Her pictures are so awesome. I need to find out what kind of camera she uses. It was great to see her and everyone else at the meet-up. I ate so much, it was all so yummy!
We hosted this meet-up and the day was beautiful so we set up at the park.
Meat-free Mike's Quinoa Salad. He had me at cilantro. For some great ideas for quinoa recipes, check out Cooking Qunioa.
Savory Zucchini Bread with vegan cheese on top. Oh my! She brought two of these and they disappeared (I'm pretty sure my children ate almost one dish by themselves). Amelia is legendary in our house and the kids love anything and everything she makes. She also happens to run the Common Ground Co-op Deli department. I secretly want to open a vegan restaurant with her, but for now I'm just happy to have her smiling face at the co-op and her yummy food at the meet-up.
Confetti Ramen Slaw with Hemp Dressing. I rarely make anything with ramen. Not that I don't like ramen, I just don't think about it. This was so good, I will have to start stocking ramen noodles in my pantry.
The Indian Vegan Kitchen by Madhu Gadia. It calls for black tea in the recipe. We haven't cooked with tea often so it was fun to make a version of chole without tomatoes and the subtle tea flavor in the background.
Jasmin's Mattar Pulao. I had to return Ginger and Ganesh to the library so he went by memory.
Good Earth Organic White Tea Sweet Citrus flavor.
slackline because it is too much fun. Here is Amelia looking like a pro!
