-On Saturday Nov 6th, 16 Members and friends of VSSJ gathered for a delicious meal at the Green House Chinese Vegetarian Restaurant located on 655 Haddon Ave in Collingswood NJ – http://www.655greenhouse.com
Dinner was served family style starting with two delicious soups – Miso and Sweet and Sour, followed by two delicious appetizers. Each of the four entrees that followed were met with very happy and pleased responses. There was so much food that we raffled off the leftovers. Barata won the first door prize – a vegan crock pot recipe book and canvas tote then Steve won a years membership. Everyone had a great time!

What do all natural and wholesome mean to Barbara’s? “All natural” means choosing high quality ingredients to provide optimum nutrition and taste. It means no refined sugar, hydrogenated oils, artificial food additives, flavors or preservatives. Being “wholesome” is the healthy and nourishing result of using all natural ingredients – that’s Barbara’s way.

This recipe is packed with nutrients and it’s delicious
3 large cucumbers, 1 T. Agave syrup, 2 T. Wakame flakes, tsp sea salt, 2 T rice vinegar
Soak the wakame flakes with water in a bowl until rehydrated – about 15-20 minutes.
Next, use veg spiral or a food processor ( large flat blade) to slice the cucumber thinly. In a colander toss the cucumber with salt and let sit for 15 minutes.
Rinse the cucumber very thoroughly with water, and press firmly to drain all excess moisture. Pat dry with a paper towel. Drain the wakame, then press and pat as well to discard moisture.
Combine the wakame and cucumber in a medium bowl, and toss with agave syrup and rice vinegar. If needed, drain once more before serving.
