Shru’s Kitchen Introduces Monthly BakeBoxes
Our favorite organic, plant based kitchen is whipping up something extra special that could not be more timely. Combining a talent for clean, vegan cuisine and creative ingredients, Bay Meadows’ resident Shruti Boddu has launched a line of BakeBoxes that give back to charitable causes. The idea of baking something sweet to sweeten the world is just what we need this season. Plus, diving into baking lends some control in our lives so follow along @shruskitchen for upcoming recipes to try out in your Bay Meadows kitchens!
In June, Shru’s Kitchen sold 300+ vegan cookies raising $450 for @theokraproject and @bakersagainstracism which inspired a long-tern shift in her company to create monthly BakeBoxes containing an assortment of goodness with a them and in support of a unique organization each month.
Shru’s September BakeBox will feature two mini-loaves, a vegan chocolate zucchini loaf and a vegan banana bread loaf (with the option to mix and match if you have a strong preference). 50% of proceeds will be donated to @cafirefound, an organization that supports firefighters, their families, and victims of the recent fires. Order your BakeBox HERE: with FREE Doorstep Delivery on the Peninsula. The September BakeBox = $15 and may be ordered by September 13th.
“Healthy, vegetarian, dairy-free and low-gluten foods are the key requirements for all my meals. I use simple, raw ingredients and strive for quick thirty-minute recipes.”
Look forward to fall flavors which may include the likes of apple-flavored vegan sugar cookies in playful designs like vanilla-mummies or matcha-mad-eyeballs in the October BakeBox, followed by pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and other seasonal flavors. And for all your gift giving, custom, vegan baked goods orders sweetened with delicious coconut sugar and maple syrup. Standard birthday cake orders will also continue with a donation of 50% of all proceeds to various organizations, even with custom orders.
Let Shruti’s Journey Be Your Inspiration To Get Cooking (and Baking)
“I actually refused to enter the kitchen until I was 25. I spent large parts of my early adulthood away from home and in different countries, and never really delved into the art of cooking meals at home. I constantly ate meals outside, and while this was an exciting way to explore different food and local cuisines, I realized that I missed the wholesomeness and simplicity of home cooked food. Eventually, I decided that the best way to balance things out was to cook delicious meals at home, while experimenting based on all the different foods that I was fortunate enough to try. It was a beginning of a journey, and there was no looking back since!”
