February 2016 – Potluck


Saturday, February 27, 2016

Bring a 100% plant-based dish free of flesh, eggs, animal-derived dairy, honey, and gelatin. If you don’t cook, that’s okay — bring something from the store! Your dish should serve 6 people.

The suggested February potluck theme is: BREAKFAST FOR DINNER!  

Ideas: Tofu scramble, breakfast burritos, muffins, breakfast potatoes, sausages, hashbrowns, cereal, tofu Benedict, waffles, donuts, fruit salad, and more. People are also asked to bring their recipe or a list of all ingredients used (for the benefit of those with food allergies).

The Chico Vegan Potluck meets on the fourth Saturday of every month at 6:00 pm.

Delicious food and recipes are shared with those who care about their health, the planet, and, most of all, the animals.
