Wilmington Vegan August Potluck – Vegan on the Cheap!

The theme for our August potluck is “Vegan on the Cheap!” Let’s flex our frugal plant-strong muscles and keep our big dishes under $10 or so. Choose from all sorts of yummy vegan foods such as lentils, chickpeas, beans, noodles, stirfry, potatoes, sweet potatoes, salads, curries, and all sorts of seasonal veggies and fruits including green beans, butter beans, blueberries, cabbage, cantaloupes, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, okra, peaches, peanuts, field peas, green peppers, squash, tomatoes, and watermelon.

What to do with all the cash you saved?! Spend it at the bake sale of course! Illustrious vegan baker Sandra Sharpe will be making some insanely yummy treats. Bring some cash and take home some of the best desserts you’ll ever have!

The purpose of this event is to make (or purchase) a new or favorite dish to share with others, get together and socialize with other like-minded folks, and enjoy small samples of the yummy vegan dishes everyone else brings. Please bring a good amount of food to share and extra if you’re bringing children or there’s more than one person in your party.

Bring a list of ingredients along with your dish (or even better, the recipe!) Remember: this is a vegan safe-space event and DISHES MUST BE 100% VEGAN, with no meat, no fish, no milk, no butter, no eggs, no chicken stock, no honey, and so on. Please ask if you have any questions. Please also bring YOUR OWN UTENSILS, BOWL, PLATE and drink. This is a TRASH-FREE EVENT which means we are not generating any trash – please bring only reusable items, no paper or plastic.

Our potlucks take place the first Thursday of every month at 6:30pm at the Kitchen & Lounge Community Building at South Front Apartments. Use the gate located on Greenfield Street at 2nd Street, across the street from Satellite Bar. The gate is open until 7pm, after that you’ll need to enter a code. Drive straight in all the way until the end of the road and turn right to find parking. Parking is permitted only in the spaces without numbers. After parking, walk over to the lounge located at the center of the complex. The lounge entrance is on the opposite side (facing Front St).

Wilmington Vegan Potluck

Aquafaba Demo Recap!

On June 29th, Sandra Sharpe taught us all about aquafaba. Aquafaba, which literally means “bean water”, is the liquid leftover after cooking chickpeas. Even the most skeptical students were wowed by the delicious possibilities of aquafaba! We learned how to make whipped cream, meringue, mayonnaise, ranch dressing, and even ice cream! While we enjoyed learning, we REALLY enjoyed the sampling! Stay tuned for more demos to come! 

Aquafaba Cooking Class!

Come and learn some of the many ways you can use Aquafaba (chickpea brine), which is probably in your pantry right now! With this amazing ingredient, you will learn how to replace eggs with it, make marshmallow fluff, vegan meringues, vegan mayonnaise, ranch, AND ice cream!!!! Space is limited so sign up today. Cost is $25 per person.
