A journey of cooking vegan food for my family.

Cooking with the co-op…

I have mentioned before and I will say it again.  I love our dinner co-op.  Don’t get me wrong, I love to cook.  But there is something so nice about having awesome vegan meals delivered to your door.  I wish everyone could participate in a vegan dinner co-op.  Our meals so far this week have rocked as usual.  Monday we were delivered a giant chipotle white bean dish.  It’s a layered dish of beans, kale, chipotle and tomatoes.  It is baked with breadcrumbs on top and then drizzled with cilantro pesto.  Delicious!  It had a side of red bell pepper tomato salad and bread. 

Tuesday night we were delivered a mushroom, kale, tofu dish served with quinoa and sweet potato fries.  It was great.  And what was even better was the fact that the boys enjoyed it as well.  Little bear Adam ate everything, including the mushrooms.  Arthur ate the quinoa and tofu.  This made us very happy because he usually wants bread.  He loves bread.

Monday I created a recipe for Apricot Date Granola.  It is so tasty.  As I mentioned before, I make granola for us because the cost at the store is ridiculous.  The boys loved it too.

Today I am making a roasted coconut carrot soup for the dinner co-op.  The weather is turning warm, so this will most likely be one of the last soups until Fall.  I am serving the soup with a salad.  Some of the greens are from our garden.  Yippee!  And bread.  It is Passover this week, so we will not be eating the bread. 

Well I am off to knead some dough.  Hope you each have a lovely day.

peas and love….

  1. Looks great and sounds like a fun time. I have never done anything like that. It is a shame your kids do not like the mushrooms! Hahahaha! I love them!

  2. I wish we could get a dinner co-op started here. Unfortunately, most of my friends don’t cook. 😦

  3. I’ve been fantasizing about starting a dinner coop, too. Unfortunately, I don’t know enough vegans in my area 😦 One day…

  4. How does the dinner co-op work? Does it take food allergies into account?

    I doubt I’d be able to round up enough folks to do a vegan one since we’re now moving to a smaller community, but you never know…

  5. You might be surprised at the willingness of people to try alternative diets (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free) when it’s just 3 or 4 dinners a week. I’ve been in a vegetarian co-op for nearly 5 years now, and only one of the 12 members is actually a vegetarian. The rest of us enjoy the healthy variety of 4 non-meat meals a week.

    I am going to Las Vegas with some buddies next month and we are going to go to clubbing. I was wondering what type of shoes should I wear to these dance clubs?
