My First Vegan Event – Soup Night! + Black Bean Sweet Potato Chili Recipe

Earth Angel Vegan hosted a soup night!  We had a mini fund raiser for Club Pet Adoption where a senior pit is waiting for his forever home.   We fell in love with Jax and wanted to send some funds to help with his care.  We had a basket raffle to raise some money.  A big thanks to Orange Avocado in Boardman Oh and Ann Baker Hair Company Sharon Pa for donating gift cards.  The basket winner also got an Earth Angel Vegan tee shirt, gift card and bracelet!

MEET JAX

 Club Pet Adoption is at 20 Schaller Rd. Transfer Pa 724-815-3400… ADOPT DON’T SHOP!

Our soup night was a success…. I made all of the eats!   We had sweet potato black bean chili (recipe below), potato soup and veggie noodle.  Salads included a fruit, beet and garden salad.  The highlight of the evening was the bread!  Our resident artisan bread maker Lori Sands from GOING WITH THE GRAIN BAKERY provided us with Country French and Seeded Rye.  Thanks Lori it was delicious!

It was so nice to share a vegan meal with friends and family… I want to thank my girls for helping out and everyone who came and enjoyed a delicious meal.

A big shout out to ANNIE BAKER!   She let us transform her garage into a restaurant for the night.  She is a fabulous hair dresser… her salon is Ann Baker Hair Company.  She is located at 74N Oakland and happily takes new clients!  Give her a call  724-346-2111.
