For the past few months, a small group of vegans and vegan-curious friends have been getting together on Saturdays to share food. As vegans are wont to do, we usually over-cater, which is followed quickly by over-eating.
Last Saturday about 10 of us met at a park and did it again. The food was really fantastic - too good, really, because I went home and didn't want dinner.
Belinda made sausage rolls, filled with sweet potato and couscous. Very flavourful, and Andy would have called them a good vessel for sauce.
Stevie and Luc made dips, and they brought crackers and chips for dipping into them. The tofutti-based french onion was to die for, and there was a very yummus-hummus, too.
Deborah brought some pizza scrolls that were hard to stop eating.
Sunny brought fantastically-fluffy wholemeal pancakes, and some jam to spread on them.
And I made some Ultimate BBQ tofu, using the recipe from Vegan Dad that I found on the Moody Noodles' blog.
It was worth waving the flies away for all of this delicious food, and good company too.
If you're in Townsville and interested in meeting up, we do this on the last Saturday of each month. Find the details on the Townsville Vegans facebook page.
