TAPAS CRAWL, VEGAN STYLE!
Bring a 100% plant-based tapas-style 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.
Before I get to this month’s theme, I wanted to let people know that these potlucks are way more popular than the RSVP counts on this meetup page. Our average potluck attendance is about 25 people, because we get many people from the Chico Vegan Meetup Facebook group, as well as from chicovegan.com.
The suggested theme of this month’s potluck is: TAPAS TIME, VEGAN-STYLE!
WHAT THE HECK ARE TAPAS????? Tapas are essentially finger foods, usually served (and expected) as snacks at bars, and they can range from rather fancy compilations of fine ingredients to a toothpick of olives, à la extra olives in a martini. Go here if you want to learn more.
HERE ARE SOME VEGAN RECIPES:

If you’re not into cooking but just want to socialize, it’s fine to bring something yummy from the store, AS LONG AS IT IS IN THE TAPAS STYLE.
People are also asked to bring their recipe or a list of all ingredients used (for the benefit of those with food allergies).
Please do not bring soup – we have no bowls and are concerned about spills.
Please bring your own beverages.
Please bring your own plates, cups, silverware, and serving utensils. We have spares available if you forget!
Non-veg friends welcome! Children welcome! Sorry, no dogs. No alcohol.
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.
