Wilmington Vegan August Potluck – What’s In Season

What’s in season?! We live in a climate that allows us to enjoy fresh greens, veggies, and fruits for a large portion of the year. This month (August) we should have green beans, butter beans, cabbage, cantaloupes, grapes, leafy greens, okra, peaches, peas, squash, tomatoes, watermelon, and perhaps corn and peppers still, and definitely peanuts and sweet potatoes (in season year-round). Find at least one “in season” ingredient for your dish this potluck and highlight it on your ingredients list or recipe card. Let’s hit the farmers market or co-op and see what we can make!

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.
