Vegan Tailgate!

Saturday, November 2nd we had our very first tailgate! All the dishes were vegan, and the majority were gluten free!

Each of the officers made some dishes that we all enjoyed.

We had veggie burgers and buns, pesto pasta, diced roasted potatoes, a pear apple walnut cranberry salad, an orange kale salad, lentil soup, hummus and vegetables, Almond butter rice crispy bars, and apple raisin crisp.

Instead of maple syrup, brown sugar was used (just because it was what was on hand).

And we had Almond butter rice crispy treats! The recipe is from Angela Liddon’s blog, here:
