This weekend was RDFL (Rent's Due Free Lunch). The guest list can be anywhere from 10 to 25 so making something scalable is always a good thing. This time I wanted to share the Southwestern Corn Pudding (also known as cornpone in the South) from the Veganomicon and designed a southern-style meal to go around it.
This was the menu:
- Roasted Vegetable Soup
- Southwestern Corn Pudding
- Pinto Beans - cooked overnight in a crock pot with a piece of wakame and a carrot (which were later tossed). I also added some amazing pepper that can be ordered online.
- Roasted broccoli - just put in the oven with some olive oil and salt
- Smoky Collards from the Veganomicon
Yes, it took a lot of time to make, but the reception was pretty good and my guess is that the more I do this the more I will be able to do it quickly. Most of all, I really enjoy sharing vegan cooking with my friends.
