It has been asked for, and thanks to Lori, Marleah and the Hays Public Library, we can now provide you with a cooking demonstration. This is the first of hopefully many videos for cooking vegan. In it was made the Tortilla Casserole which can be found in the on the Resources page of our site, or by clicking here.
I do want to mention that the Morningstar Farms soy crumbles used in the video has since changed their recipe. The product now contains less that 2% skim milk making this actual recipe vegetarian, but non-vegan. You can leave out the crumbles, yet still have a good well balanced main dish. The black beans also put in the dish will provide some protein. If wanted two cans of beans could be used.
We have written to the company to inform them of our disappointment. If you would also like to send them a email, please feel free to do so from their website: http://www.morningstarfarms.com. I hope you enjoy the recipe and video.
In January of this year we participated in the Humane Society of the High Plains Soup’R Bowl again. Again we served our Harvest Chili. It went over well and provided people with a great tasting vegan soup.
In case you have not heard of the event, the Soup’R Bowl is a competition among local cooks to provide the best tasting soup. It is then open to the public to decide. They can buy tickets and get to sample all of the soups to pick out the best one. All money raised then goes to the Humane Society of the High Plains.
Here are some pictures from the event.
Today we found a clip on the internet that talks about WKVS. This is amazing. SupremeMasterTV.com published this news artical out onto youtube. Here is what they have to say:
I have posted a new schedule for May and June. I wanted to point out some important changes though. Note that the May 20th and June 24 meeting are on Wednesdays from 5:30 P.M. – 6:30 P.M. Still have two Saturday meetings, but we have included some Wednesday meetings to try to help people make the meetings. With the activities that pile up on Saturdays, we want see if stepping out of the weekend loop can help people out.
So please stop by at our new and old times, and tell us what you think.
Today was much of a turn out, but that is OK. The people that were there had some good talks about animal rights. The discussion was based around the “30 Days: Animal Rights” episode. This episode was used to spark discussion and thought on the animal rights issues. A great episode and is well worth watching.
Along with the episode we made our vegan chocolate mousse, and also had strawberries and bananas on the side. This was a great little dessert/snack and is recommended to anyone who wants to make a great vegen dish.
Originally shown on the cable channel FX, we were able to watch it in high definition from hulu.com. Please feel free to watch it, but it is intended for mature audiences. Viewer discretion is advised.
We will be having our next meeting next Saturday, Feb. 21st at the Hays Public Library. We will be discusing how how to use toffu as this has been requested by many who missed our previous dimistration on it (like we could really cover it all the first time anyway 🙂 We should also have a schedule for the next two months of our meetings at that meeting. I will post it on the site as soon as I can. I hope to see you next Saturday.
Sunday Marleah and I made an appearance at the Humane Society of the High Plains at their yearly Souper Bowl. We join 14 other groups in a competition of soup cooking, with the Hays area public being the judges. All money raised at the event went to the HPHS. This was a great event that we were proud to be a part of.
The turnout was great. We saw many people, and many people saw us with our Harvest Chili. We don’t have the recipe for the soup on our site, but hopefully I can get it posted as some point.
Even though we didn’t come in first, we enjoyed every minute of it. Mark it on your calendar for next year and get more information about the HPHS at there website http://www.hshponline.org/
Yesterday we got to have a special presentation that we gave to a group at the Center for Life Experiences. About 25-30 people attended, and it was great. We maid our vegan bar-b-q sandwiches as well as a chocolate mousse. Both foods went over real well.
Marleah put together a PowerPoint presentation and gave a general overview of vegetarianism and veganism. This PowerPoint can be found on our resources page for those who would like to see or get a copy of it. This was then followed by a question and answer session where we were asked some great questions that we tried to answer to the best of our abilities.
Again we got to meet some great new people, and we both had a good time talking and informing the people who attended the event at the center.
