The $5.00 Challenge

At the home of Bhavani and Joe Jaroff, Slow Food Huntington hosted a successful event to Challenge the “status quo” of the “Value Meal”

We joined Slow Food USA in their national campaign to Challenge the “Value Meal”. For less than $5.00 per person, we put together a full vegetarian buffet which was enjoyed by all.

The menu consisted of 2 soups, a Cold Green Gazpacho Soup and a Hot Minestrone Soup, 2 Appetizers, Hummus and Guacamole with pita and corn chips and 2 entrees.

The first entree was  gluten free Rice Noodles with Pesto with basil from Bhavani’s garden, Make your own Black Bean Fajitas with beans that were soaked and cooked with kombu, Mexican Brown Rice with Roasted Non GMO Corn, and Fresh Mixed Green and Arugula Salad (also from the garden) with Organic Goat Cheese on the side.

For dessert we enjoyed some Gluten Free Banana Bread and Carrot Cake. Everything was made that day by members of our chapter!
