Full Moon, Friends, and Plantains for Brunch

A few of my Memphis Hash House Harriers friends and I gather for most every full moon, and the June Strawberry Moon was no exception. Our friend Grace graciously hosted and cooked us a lovely vegan dinner. Most of these gatherings just involve some wine and vegan cheese or snacks, but Grace went all out!

She made Vegan Risotto, Muhmmara with Veggies, and a Green Salad with a homemade dressing! The muhmmara is a red pepper-walnut spread that's a little like hummus but better! She even made, not pictured, Vegan Strawberry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches for dessert!

Here's a recent brunch from The Liquor Store. The Cuban Platter comes with black beans, saffron rice, sauteed veggies, and the best-ever plantains. 

And I've been enjoying this Cauliflower White Bean Alfredo with pasta for weeks. I made a bunch of the sauce (using this recipe) and froze it. It's very high-protein with Complement plain protein powder, white beans, cauliflower, and lots of other veggies.
