Food for Protesting

So things are going crazy in the States right now. Black Lives Matter and other groups are protesting the public lynching of George Floyd, one of hundreds of Black people to die at the hands of the police in the last decade.

If you are going out to support the protest, and you want to help provide some supplies, I am putting together a list of recipes that are easy to make in large quantities, easy to portion, and can be kept hot in a crock pot or similar for a long time.

Chickpea Curry

This is a vegan curry that is still plenty creamy and is quick and easy to make.

Chicken Tikka Masala

An easy to make crowd pleaser that is easy to sub out things like cream and yogurt with coconut cream and easily swapped out protein to make a vegan or vegetarian option.

Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

Classic family favorite, keeps well, portions well, cheap and quick to make.

Bring water, milk, masks, snacks, anything you can to help. If you are white, be a shield, not a savior, be a partner, do not take control. 

If do not want to join the protests, for whatever reason, please consider donating to local bail funds and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Also, make sure you are registered to vote. Vote early, vote often.
