This week's mission: select a recipe for a potluck that can be made in advance, sit around in a cooler for a while before the meal is served, satisfy a hungry vegan, and please non-vegans even though it will compete with pizza. Veganomicon to the rescue with this vibrant, tropical, addictive quinoa salad that is a perfect room temperature dish. A salad so pretty and delicious that it will be one of my go-to dishes for potlucks this summer. If you don't have your own copy of Veganomicon yet, you can check out the recipe here.
Let's see, a couple of discoveries since I last posted include vegan pizza with Daiya cheese at Katie's Pizzeria in St. Louis. Plus, cheddar and mozzarella Daiya retail packs available at Whole Foods. Welcome back to my kitchen, gooey quesadillas!
