December Go Texan, Go Local Culinary Workshop

leave a comment »

Last weekend we hosted our second Go Texan, Go Local Culinary Workshop. Thanks to the Texas Department of Agriculture, we are able to host these workshops on a monthly basis for free. We partnered with Traveling Recipes, and every month we design a menu featuring 6 plant based dishes featuring Texas produce. As a store, we source over 90% of our fruits and vegetables from Texas, so it’s easy for us to create an entire meal using only what we can buy locally. We host these workshops at the brand new (and absolutely awesome) kitchen at Sustainable Food Center— community, it’s a beautiful thing.

This month’s menu was:

  • Warm potato salad
  • Stir fry and brown rice wraps with creamy cashew sauce
  • Hot & cold kale salad
  • Sweet and spicy mushroom and spaghetti squash pasta
  • Roasted butternut squash and coconut soup
  • Vegan, GF and raw pumpkin pie.

Sounds delicious, right?

After spending a few hours in the kitchen together, meeting new people and learning new skills we all sat down to eat together and chat about life and food. There’s nothing quite as wonderful as working hard in the kitchen and sitting down to the fruits of your labor. All of the dishes turned out delicious, and the recipes will be posted on the Traveling Recipes blog within the next few days. If you’re interested in joining us for our next culinary workshop, sign up for our mailing list and we’ll let you know about all of our upcoming events.

Happy cooking!
