Our Meetup group is going to have another rager this Wednesday at the Environmental Center in Bend, Oregon.
YOU are invited!
Check out the fun here:
1C ground pecans
1C garbanzos soaked, cooked and drained
3T gluten-free soy sauce
½ C chopped onion
1 handful nutritional yeast
Chardonnay as needed
Mix all ingredients in food processor, then add chardonnay until mixture is the consistency of cookie dough. Form into balls and cook on cookie sheet in 350F oven until firm (about 45 mins.).
In skillet saute one chopped onion and seven chopped white mushrooms in 7T olive oil until soft. Add 1/2 C chardonnay, 2T either rice flour, corn starch, or tapioca flour and 1/4 C nutritional yeast. Simmer for five minutes on very low. Pour over meetballs and sauteed green beans.
I created this recipe to layer the creamy, salty, earthy, tart, and fermented flavors of cambozola or blue cheese. I hope you like it and do something creative with the arrangement on your table. My suggestion for the most sinful way to experience this wheel would be to surround it with dark purple grapes and dark rye flat bread wafers (homemade, of course!) Recipe below.
Boutique Burdock Blue
½ C chopped purple cabbage
1/20 T astidafeoda
1 ¼ C raw cashews, soaked overnight
1 C dry raw cashews ground to powder in coffee bean grinder
Juice of two lemons, squeezed
2 T agar agar
1 C water
¼ C burdock root chopped (gobo)
¼ C tahini
2 small cloves garlic
2 T sea salt
¼ C Soy cream
Finely grind prepared burdock, purple cabbage and 1T salt and tahini in food processor. Grease cheese molds. Dot bottom of molds with 1 tsp. of this mixture. Set aside.
Bring water to boil, add agar agar, cook on very low, stirring occasionally for a few minutes. Throw remaining ingredients (but not cabbage mixture!) and half of the lemon juice in food processor and process to fine. Add soy cream mixture and blend well.
Pour 1/3 into mold. Add another teaspoon burdock mixture. Then add more liquid, gently. Repeat this layering process into all of the molds until gone. Refrigerate until solid, then turn upside down, remove and serve.
Check out this article on practical uses for vodka (other than drinking it). These tips are especially pertinent for vacationers in that as the article points out, some people are more likely to have a bottle of vodka in the house than the barrage of other elixirs used to solve problems.

The Central Oregon Dinner Party, ala Vegan
Before you start cooking you'll want to call three or four friends who've been particularly kind to you, even if it was long ago (never forget a kindness), and invite them to dinner. Plan ahead so if any of them live farther away than this 90-minute recipe takes to create, that they shall arrive when it's hot.
