Kind Veggie Burritos - The Cookbook

Hey now, y'all!
Yup, I guess it's about time I checked in here! (Woo-hoo!! Mail order today!)

Thanks for your kind words about my cookbook and for keeping it going..It really is a labor of love. I got the idea for writing it back in early 1991 when, in between tours, I started jonesing, not only for the music, but for some of the really good parking lot food you could sometimes find. Yes, there could be some sketchy stuff, but when it was good, it was sublime!

The truth was, I never could get my stir-fry exactly right, and oh, those burritos!

So I started talking to Deadheads in the lot, handed out flyers, emailed on the Internet, and got recipes and suggestions from Heads everywhere that I could find them. And so, on Spring Tour of 1995, my cookbook was born! With over 120 pages of recipes, I use it all the time in my kitchen. Veggie burritos, main dishes, munchies, soups, salads, and even a little Meat As Well!

Like it was noted before, all proceeds go to Rex and SEVA. Nowadays, with costs going up, it's not as much as it was, but every bit counts.

By the way, I never realized that typo on the Pear Chutney recipe... that line is repeated, I believe, and nothing was left out.. sorry about that! Thanks for letting me know. I can't believe I never noticed it.. shows you where I am, when I'm cooking! ;-)

Anyway, just stopping by to say hey, and I hope to see you down the road!
Have yourself a kind and beautiful day!
- Beth

"Falafal, but I'll feel better in the morning."

A guy said this when he called in to Tales From The Golden Road a while back. They seemed to recognize him. Is that the guy? On another note, my son is a great cook and we have talked about the food scam opportunity. Is there any bureaucratic hassle like health inspectors, licenses, or crackdowns on the alcohol (my wife makes a better hippy than me because I am so indoctrinated on rules and obeying signs and she says "why can't we just do what we want?")? I imagine the official venders inside the festivals have something.

lot food

Hi there-
my friend and i sold beadwork on our first east coast tour, we quickly learned that it was easier and faster to sell good clean food.We started with veggie burritos, then branched out into making Thai Peanut Veggie Rolls, and even made banana, pb and raisin wraps.
We liked to sell out before the show because it was SO hard at times to remember what was in the burritos after the show. If you know what i mean. We loved it b/c it put us in touch with a lot of nice people, and so many memorable moments. Selling food also allowed me to tour for years and see hundreds of shows (330- i think)

Mayan Hot Chocolate, mmmmmm

Mayan hot chocolate, yum. Chase it with some primo coffee and you've got all my basic food groups covered. Don't let yourself get torn, marye, grab a handful of each!

Say, jrbassman: doesn't Homey get pissed when you stick him on a banana and throw him on the grill?

just because I happened to look up and see his flyer

I recommend to the attention of Oakland chocolate lovers the wares of barloventochocolates.com. I am currently torn between the various dark chocolate creams and the more exotic variants like Meyer Lemon Zest and Mayan Hot Chocolate. Besides, the dude's a Deadhead.

Oops, forgot to mention...

...I forgot to point out that Beth gives the proceeds of the Kind Veggie Burrito cookbook sales to the Rex Foundation and SEVA. There you go, you gets and you gives!
