1) NEW PLACES TO BUY VEGAN PIZZA IN MARYLAND AREA

&PIZZA IN THE GREATER WASHINGTON, DC/MARYLAND/VA AREA CLEARLY MARKS VEGAN AND VEGETARIAN ITEMS ON THEIR MENU
We live in Springfield, VA. The Springfield Town Center has reopened recently and has a new place called &Pizza. It works on the order of Chipotle. You go through a line and pick out any and everything you want on your pizza. It's the same price no matter how many items. The menu clearly labels every vegan item on the menu (Daiya cheese included). Here's there website where you can view the menu: [ http://andpizza.com/ ] . The staff at our location was very knowledgeable about the vegetarian and vegan items.

You can purchase these titles from The Vegetarian Resource group at:
[ http://www.vrg.org/catalog/ ]

Cream of Asparagus or Broccoli Soup (from Vegan Passover Recipes)

People will be amazed and delighted with this non-dairy, lowfat “cream” soup.

  • 2 cups frozen (thawed) or fresh asparagus spears or broccoli florets
  • ½ cup finely chopped onions
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 cup peeled and boiled white potatoes, mashed
  • ½ teaspoon white pepper

Microwave asparagus or broccoli and onions for 3 minutes or steam for 8 minutes, until very soft. Retain any liquid (about 1/4 cup). In a blender, combine cooked vegetables, potatoes, and pepper.
