Vegan Meals and Community in Montreal

21 Mar

Montreal offers a diverse array of restaurants for all tastes and preferences. One student recently pointed out two unique and delicious (and cheap!) spots for warm meals and great company.

Rabit Hole Cafe:
The Rabbit Hole Café is a safe haven where students living in Montreal can go to enjoy a delicious, warm meal and some great company on a Friday afternoon. From 12:30 to 3:30 pm, Rabbit Hole Cafe opens its doors to invite students to eat a scrumptious 3-course vegan meal for just two dollars (and washing your dishes after)! All the proceeds go directly into sustaining the program. We will not turn away students who cannot pay the suggested donation. (The last time I was there, they had a chocolate chip cookie with an oreo baked inside.)

Midnight Kitchen
The Midnight Kitchen is a non-profit, volunteer and worker run food collective dedicated to providing affordable, healthy food to as many people as possible. Based out of McGill University in Montreal, QC we provide free/by donation vegan lunches 5 days a week, Monday through Friday, at 12:30 in the Shatner building on McGill campus.

Another locations for connecting with food and community:
The People’s Potato
The People’s Potato is a vegan soup kitchen at Concordia University – a student initiated project. We offer by donation meals each day of the week during the Fall and Winter semesters. We serve more than 400 meals daily to students, community members with the help of our dedicated volunteers. We are committed to educating about healthy cooking and food politics and to broader goals of social and environmental justice.

Mac and Cheese

6 Dec

We know it’s hard to live without mac and cheese; it’s the number one shipped item to abroad students. But really, guys, a $50 box of mac and cheese? Not worth it. Try this recipe from Champlain student Jaime Berry instead. It’s almost as easy, and so much cheaper.

Baked Pears with Crumble Filling

2 Dec

Good for breakfast and brunch, but with a scoop of ice cream, could easily be dessert. Delicious. Also, super cheap and super easy.

Grilled Cheese

11 Nov

One of the ultimate comfort foods. Toasted, buttery bread and lots of melty cheese? Yum. And wicked easy. Perfect to make when you don’t feel like “really” cooking. Continue reading

Bruschetta: Easy Italian Beauteousness.

8 Nov

For how good it is, bruschetta is easier than it should be. Honestly. Bread, tomato, garlic, olive oil, basil, mozzarella if you can find it. Something magical happens when you toast the bread and assemble the ingredients. Coming back from two weeks in Italy over Spring Break, I lived on bruschetta. It’s cheap. It’s delicious. And it’s pretty good for you, as far as a light lunch or snacks go. It’s perfect for entertaining, and the best way to use up some slightly stale bread.

Italian 101: In Italian, “ch” is pronounced like a “k” sound: bru-SKET-ta.
