The view from Bristol!

This is a big day for our project! We're trying a new idea --- having our usual email of recipes and news written up by one of our circle other than me. Chris P. in the UK is the first to jump in. Enjoy!--- Eve

Greetings Mindful Cooks!
This guest post comes to you from Bristol, UK, from where, in 1497, John Cabot sailed to become the first European in North America and, in the 1800s, Isambard Kingdom Brunel made his name as an engineer. We mustn’t forget, however, that this city’s wealth is founded on the appalling trades of tobacco and slavery.

Of green tomatoes, ugly produce and several new books

In my last letter, I asked what to do with green tomatoes, and I bet you are all wondering what I learned. Here's what Donna suggested:
brush with olive oil and garlic, pinch of salt and roast in the oven and then sprinkle with nutritional yeast. I think you might be so pleasantly surprised at taste and texture! Enjoy! donna

What can I do with green tomatoes?

Heather D. is joining us from Longview, WA. She's doing the Veg Challenge through NWVEG with our own Linda in Portland as her mentor. Welcome, Heather, and good luck with the Challenge. There are 215 of us now, cheering you on!

This and that

We have two newcomers in our circle this week, Bret here in Portland and Maria in Salem, Oregon. Welcome Bret and Maria!

We also have two new recipes on our website. Those of us in Portland got to taste these at our summer potluck and can confirm they are good! Here is Diane's Gazpacho:
And here is Ruth's Brazilian Succotash:
Brazilian-Style Succotash

Making a difference

We have two New Yorkers joining our group this time, Laurie Stedman from Albany and Sophia Bae in New York City. Sophia was inspired to look us up when she tasted the excellent plant-based meals at a Blue Cliff retreat. She told me "The food during the retreat was so delicious, even my 10 year old was enthusiastic about it." I hope our recipes can keep that enthusiasm going! So glad to have you both with us, Laurie and Sophia.
