Meat Lite: An Almost-Meatless Buffet

Joy and I just had the pleasure of the company of 35 bloggers at a potluck to celebrate our book, Almost Meatless, which is also the inspiration for this column. The catch is, the potluck participants convened online. After cooking an assigned recipe from the book, each blogger took a picture, blogged about it and included the original recipe. That means instead of one Meat Lite recipe this week, you get 35!

Stop by the party and get acquainted with the blogger attendees, including cookbook authors, food writers, chefs, vegetarians, meat heads, ex-vegans who love bacon, canning mavens, singers, and many others. Your goodie bag will be chock-full of recipes.

About the author: Tara Mataraza Desmond writes about, cooks, and eats food for a living. She blogs about food and life through words and pictures at Crumbs On My Keyboard.
