Survival Food | VeganMoFo 2017 Day Sixteen

VeganMoFo 2017

Week Three: Ingredient Challenges
Survival food: There’s a zombie apocalypse!  What can you make
from just canned or foraged food?

So… at what stage is the apocalypse? Like, is society so far gone that we have no electricity? Have I depleted all my other shelf-stable provisions? What season is it? I need more information!

‘Round these parts, I could “forage” fresh veggies (well… tomatoes) from my garden during the spring and summer, and herbs for a bit longer. Depending on the season, paw-paws and various berries (black- and rasp-) are pretty abundant in parks and along the roads. Dandelion greens are probably pretty easy to snag, too. And I could always loot a nursery for edible flowers.

I guess that if the apocalypse were nigh and I had time to prepare, I would stock my pantry with beans and other shelf-stable items that don’t require cooking for safety. I would also make a ton of vegan jerky and try to vacuum-seal it or something. I dunno, man.

Meh. This prompt doesn’t really excite me. I considered making like, a mixed-bean salad or something that doesn’t need to be cooked, but I didn’t actually want to eat it.

Here’s a picture of Moria instead. Good thing her dog food is shelf-stable!

  1. Moria’s eyes are looking a bit glazed over, you might need to start stocking up now! Hello apocalypse! I would head to my bookcase and re-read Northeast Foraging: 120 Wild and Flavorful Edibles from Beach Plums to Wineberries by leda Meredith.

    Everyone should have a similar book in their house, just in case……..
