Monthly Vegan Potluck

Please join us for tasty foods and friendly company!!!  Please bring a vegan dish to share (no meat, eggs, dairy) with at least one copy of the recipe to put out by your dish.  We encourage you to bring your own place setting (plate, silverware, cup) and beverage of choice.  Beer and wine is allowed but must be consumed responsibly.  If you need recipe ideas, there are plenty on the Internet.  Some websites you may want to check out are www.chooseveg.com, www.101cookbooks.com, and www.fatfreevegan.com.   This will be a great opportunity to meet fellow vegans, vegetarians, and those striving to incorporate more meat-free meals into their diet.  It will also allow us to try out different foods and get inspiring recipe ideas.  We also have a lending library filled with interesting books, DVDs, or other educational materials.  We will be asking for a $1.00 donation to help cover the expense of the Meetup site and supplies.  Hope to see you at the potluck!

    Instructions

    Cook the soba noodles: bring a large pot of water to boil and cook the noodles according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water before returning to pot.
    Prepare the vegetables: This is easier in a food processor than by hand. If using a food processor, shred the cabbage and sprouts with the slicing disk, then grate the carrots using the grating disk. Or use a chef’s knife to chop the cabbage and sprouts into thin strips, then coarsely grate the carrots.
    Prepare the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients until smooth.
    In a large serving bowl, combine the cooked soba noodles, shredded cabbage and sprouts, grated carrots, and chopped green onions. Pour dressing over the vegetables and toss to coat (you may or may not need all of the dressing). For best flavor, let the slaw marinate for 20 minutes before serving.
    Serve slaw with a sprinkling of chopped peanuts, torn cilantro and a lime wedge.
