Each month our Recipe Club will feature a different recipe blog, cookbook author, or crowdsourced contribution. We will explore food from a variation of sources and cuisines, while learning about how many cultures contribute to the foods we eat and the vegan staples we love. If you haven’t already learned about the expansiveness and diversity of vegan options available, you will during our time together!

All are welcome to join our Recipe Club. If you need some inspiration in the kitchen, are curious to learn more, or just want to join in on the fun – this club is for you!

The best part (besides of course eating the food when you’re done), is each delicious and healthy recipe is 100% vegan, meaning no animal products or by-products will be used.

Each meal helps animals and the environment, while also building our community through outreach, education, support, and advocacy.


Step 1: Sign up to join the club by clicking this link: By signing up, you’ll only receive information and updates about our virtual meeting details, as well as reminders for the club meeting.

Step 5: Sit back and enjoy! Take pictures if you’d like and share them with us, we would love to see your delicious creations. You can tag us on Instagram or Facebook @capregionvegans or use the hashtag #CapRegionVegans.

Step 6: Join our virtual gathering (via Zoom here) to discuss your experience, including which recipes you tried, what you liked or didn’t like, any modifications you made, and more! This is a perfect opportunity to expand your meal ideas and share vegan cooking tips and tricks.


We’re feeling festive with so many upcoming holidays to celebrate this month + the new year (very soon)!
Since meals are a meaningful component of many traditional celebrations, we’re pulling together a collection of holiday recipes representing Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and Ōmisoka. Join us in learning more about the customs that build community and bring us all together at the end of the calendar year. Here’s one article we want to share with you to learn more about Kwanzaa. If you have special traditions around this time of year, we’d love to hear about them! 
Check out the featured recipes for December Recipe Club below!

P.S. Since we featured a black eyed pea recipe for November, we didn’t include one this month (although it’s a new year’s tradition for some), but you can find our previous featured recipe here or try the Toshikoshi Soba this month, which is another new year celebratory dish!

We want to know what you like to make during this time of year! Do you have a celebratory or traditional dish? Was it already vegan or have you vegan-ized it? Share with us! 

We wish you all the best with your end-of-year celebrations! Stay cozy and warm as the seasons shift, try some of these comforting yummy recipes, and we’ll hopefully see you soon at our last recipe club meet-up of the year on December 9th from 7 – 8 pm!
