once the pita was toasted we spread the hummus on the pita and topped it with a variety of toppings from green onions to roasted red peppers, the sauted mix of vegetables, the falafel and tomatoes.

Indian Fusion Rice

One afternoon decided that we wanted to make some fried rice. We decided to have lentil burgers with our fried rice.

First we made a cup of brown rice in our rice cooker. While the rice was cooking I heated up the wok and fried up some mushrooms and green onions in a little bit of oil. Once rice is finished I added the rice. To give the rice an Indian flavour to go with the lentil burger I added 2 tablespoons of Garam Masala and then a tablespoon of tamari to balance the flavours.

The People's Potato

Where:
Concordia University
7th Floor – Hall Building
Montreal, Quebec

The People’s Potato is a worker run, consensus-based collective. They serve free/by donation vegan meals. All of the food is donated by local businesses. It’s a very important service for Montreal’s poor and underprivileged, students and non-students alike.

They serve yummy, healthy and nutritious meals consisting of vegetables/products that were donated to them by local businesses. This way produce that would have been wasted because it had cosmetic flaws can be used instead of being thrown away. They usually serve a salad, soup and side from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm, Monday to Friday.

While vacationing in montreal, my girlfriend and I had the following at the People’s Potato:

  • Friday – spinach soup and vegetables with beans and couscous
  • Monday – couscous and cole slaw with apples (we got there late and missed the soup)

It’s a great environment and great initiative with a real sense of community.

They also provide free workshops throughout the year on a variety of topics, such as vegan cooking and nutrition, recycling, alternatives to the market system of food distribution, food security issues,and social justice politics.
