Things have been hectic and I am finally getting around to compiling the last of our recipes from our vegan meetup at the lovely resort last month.
- March 19 – Creative Indulgence Potluck, hosted by Artisans of the Okanagan. This event is totally open for culinary ideas, so make what you want – it doesn’t have to be baked. Think you can make it? Let me know!
- April 23 – TBA, but it looks like we may have a “pioneer recipes” theme and some rather fabulous hosts. Details to follow
Now for more vegan goodies!
Janice’s Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms
I loved these little mushrooms – what a great little appy if you’re having friends around. Or you could just make a massive plate of them and have them with a piece of buttery bread. Or maybe that’s just me…
1 box frozen spinach thawed and pressed dry.
1/2 red pepper chopped very fine.
1 onion chopped fine
3 garlic cloves chopped fine. Or more depending on taste.
dash of hot sauce.
Grated cheese mixed with buttered bread crumbs for topping.
To get everything chopped evenly, Janice used a food processor to do the pepper, onion, and garlic, and stems.
My recipes are not written in stone anywhere, so these are only approximate measures.
When in doubt, just experiment until you get the flavours and textures you like best.
Laura’s Aloo Tikki
When in doubt, potaotes! These wee treats were warming and a great comfort food – perfect for winter. The recipe is from Allyson Kramer’s blog and is both vegan and gluten free.
Lisa L’s vegan cookies
“They only have three ingredients,” says Lisa. Well, I will happily eat those three ingredients, if someone is kind enough to mix them together, bake them and bring them for me to devour. Yes, please!
In fact, Lisa went above and beyond the call of the cake mix, taking an extra step to add chocolate chips. Find zee recipe here.
Lory’s Curried Eggplant Rolls
I just about didn’t manage to get a photo of this before we’d eaten it all. I had long since decided that I wasn’t a fan of eggplant, however I really liked this recipe. It’s very fresh and healthy and leaves you feeling like you’ve done something nice for yourself.
Below are more goodies we enjoyed, but I don’t have recipes for them and I can’t recall who made a few of them. I remember eating them with great happiness – isn’t that what counts?
Tanya’s Roast Root Vegetables topped with nut “cheeze”
Roasted Butternut Squash Salad
Dill Nut “Cheeze” Dip
Hummus and Veggies
If I have missed anyone or if you have a recipe to add, please let me know. Until next time, happy recipe planning!
