Welcome to Veg'n in the 'Burbs!

It seems you have stumbled onto the companion blog to Homesteadin' in the 'burbs. Congratulations! Here you will find a treasure trove of vegetarian and vegan recipes that my family loves! I may even throw in some frugal shopping tips if you are good *wink* So pull up a seat, have a cup of coffee and enjoy!

I also want to mention that we do not strictly eat vegetarian/vegan. We work these in as often as possible but we do eat meat...we are in the process of pinning down local organic meats and buy from halal markets or eat wild game. All recipes are intended to be vegetarian but are meat optional.

mix all ingredients in a bowl and form into balls. you may need to add a bit of flour to get them to stick.  flatten balls into patties.  now they are ready to cook or freeze!  :)

Watermelon Gazpacho:
you can make this by the cup or by the gallon, but I guarantee you will want more!
