I am thrilled to have access to so many great minds and great recipes.
I have a three-day potluck coming up next weekend at work, and I am feeling uninspired.
Before I go blindly searching through recipes to narrow my planning, I wanted to get help from you.
I am the only vegan in my workplace and as accepting as my coworkers are, they never tend to bring snacks or food that I can eat. I have been smart enough to bring apples to the pizza parties and such, but I want to contribute something for everyone this time.
If you worked with me, what kind of (buffet-style potluck) treats would you want? I'd like to do something savory and something sweet.
I've just discovered a 500g tub of plain soya yogurt in the fridge that I forgot I had bought, the use by date is today. I would normally add it to things here and there but I need ideas of the best way to utilise a lot of yogurt quickly.
I was thinking that using it in baking would be the way forward as presumably when the products are cooked they will then last a few days longer. I don't know where to start short of looking through every single baking recipe in the memories so I was hoping to get some ideas.
It doesn't have to be baking but the only other thing I could think of was smoothies but I only like a touch of yogurt in them so 500g isn't going to be easily used up. Also I don't have an icecream maker so I can't make it into icecream.
I'm sorry if this has nothing much to do with vegan cooking or recipes but I've been looking for vegan Thanksgiving options and the ' grain roast' produced by a company called Field Roast looks so good. On their website they list Whole Foods market as a store where you can buy them. I went in today and asked two different people in two different departments (deli dept. and meat dept.) if they carried them and they had absolutely no idea was I was talking about. Meanwhile the 'Tofurkey' display had loads of stuff. (Don't want a Tofurkey...) Anyway, I looked all over the store and coudn't find anything. How annoying is that? Is anyone else having trouble finding these vegan roasts???
So I bought the latest issue of VegNews in the campus bookstore the other day, and it was pretty much entirely because of this delicious-sounding recipe by Dreena Burton. I can't wait to make it for my friend's co-op potluck this weekend, and for Thanksgiving next week: ( ClickyCollapse )
