VeganMoFo VIII: Celebrating Rainbows, Mothertrucker!


There was absolutely no doubt in my mind that my first Celebration Saturday was going to be about Pride.  My early twenties were a blur of gay clubs, drag queens, white parties, and so much greatness that I am truly thankful for the friends who opened my eyes to such an embracing LBGTQ community.  In fact, I began to own the term pansexual in my late twenties because I just do not feel gender or sexuality falls on a binary spectrum.  The point I'm trying to make is that I freaking love Pride.  So, here is how I would throw the best Pride party of all time.  Baby, baby!

super easy and really delicious
PRIDE MENU

SOUNDTRACK
"Ice Cream Truck" by Cazwell, Flintstones theme song, "Work Bitch" by Brit Brit

polenta croutons are the best croutons!
Okay.  So a few notes.  I halved the soup recipe and used homemade seitan sausage to replace the meat.  Additionally, I subbed vegetable chicken-flavored broth for the chicken broth.  The soup is delicious and super easy.  As for the salad, I recommend using one of  Isa's caesar dressing recipes (here, here, or the one in Appetite for Reduction).  Plus, I think the croutons would be better baked.  Either way...so good on salads.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna dream of unicorn turds while singing "Como Te Gusta Mi Pinga?" all day.
