Congratulations to our winners Coastal Vegan, Justbloggs vegan and Vegan tho.

It’s chocolate day! We know you’ve all been eagerly anticipating this day – although do you really need an excuse to eat chocolate? Vegan chocolate comes in many forms, and is no longer confined to very dark blends – there are some excellent milk and white varieties out there too that are completely vegan! Enough talking about chocolate though – we’d like to give you the opportunity to win some!

 

Have you heard of Moo Free?  They make some of the best chocolate going, and all of it is vegan!  Moo Free chocolate is all made from rice milk, and comes in various flavours and forms.  Flavourwise, we’re talking banana, cranberry and hazelnut, mint, orange and honeycomb, and of course just plain “milk” chocolate.  And you can get seasonal treats like Easter Eggs, Christmas selection boxes and advent calendars alongside all-year-round Mini Moos (small bars for those who can restrain themselves) and larger 100g bars. You can peruse their whole range here!

 

The good people of Moo Free are giving three lucky winners a 100g hazelnut nibs bar!

To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is post something chocolate related on one of your registered VeganMoFo social media accounts/blog today!  We’ll choose a winner at random.  The competition is only open to registered VeganMoFo participants in the UK and closes at midnight BST.  Good luck!

The Cruelty Free Shop Giveaway!

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS NOW CLOSED

Congratulations to our winner @zuckerbaby.1!

Our Australian MoFo’ers probably need no introduction to The Cruelty Free Shop. You can find them in Melboure, Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane, as well as online.  The shop was started  back in 2001 when Jessica Bailey wanted to make going vegan easier for people by doing all the label-reading and research herself and providing a nice easy one-stop online shop for the Australian vegan community.  In 2012 she opened the first of their supermarkets in Sydney, and stores in three other cities soon followed.

Not only do they sell a huge range of vegan food, but you can also get your hands on health and beauty products, clothes and accessories,books, and the beloved Vegan Mystery Box!  Oh, and their Christmas stock is already in too!

The lovely team at The Cruelty Free Shop have donated a $50 voucher to one lucky winner!

To win the voucher, you just need to comment on this blog post or over on Instagram and tell us:  what would be the first thing in your shopping basket if you won?  We’ll choose a winner at random.

First Week Round Up 2017

First Week Round Up 2017

VeganMoFo’ers, thank you for everything you do!  It’s been an amazing first week of VeganMoFo 2017, and we’ve been dazzled by all your creative offerings and culinary delights.  Choosing a few highlights for each day is a tough old job, but here are some that have stood out this week.

The week one theme was Changing Vegan Perceptions, and I think you will have easily convinced the rest of the world that a vegan diet is in no way a boring one!

1st: Re-inventing the veggie option

Fake Meat & True Love

Mike and Sarra livened up the dull old hummus and veg offering by making hummus-crusted tofu with an exciting range of veg (blueberry sweet peppers, anyone?) and sticking it all in a taco. Talk about an improvement!  They’ve posted a taco dish every day this week, so have a look at their other fillings too on their blog or Instagram.

@ambereatsveg

How do you make avo toast fresh and exciting? Strawberries, pomegranate balsamic and cocoa powder! We like Amber’s thinking!  All of her dishes this week have been beautiful and are worth checking out.

Living the Dream

Of course, you don’t have to be following the weekly theme or daily prompts to be featured in our round ups!  MoFo regular Jen is posting about hurricane recovery in the Florida Keys, and we were so happy to see her again!  Week 1 has been full of honest and hopeful videos from her B&B, along with inspiring tales of human kindness and generosity.

 

2nd: Junk food forever!

Coastal Vegan

Feast your eyes on this! Clare has a mouthwatering review of this vegan junk food haven in South Devon that will have us all descending there for a holiday! Clare has also shared some of her own flavoursome recipes this week if you’re in the mood for some cooking.

@vegfullife

Kirsty also went out for junk food:  where would you even start with this sample platter from Portland’s vegan BBQ joint Homegrown Smoker?!

Two Happy Rabbits

If you’re in need of a sugar fix, check out the recipe for this spectacular concoction: funnel cake topped with pumpkin pie ice cream, pecan pralines and caramel sauce.  Truly a work of art!  There’s a recipe every day on their blog, so do check it out for meal inspiration.

 

3rd:  But where do you get your protein?

Vegans Need Sauce

Emily (who happens to be VeganMoFo’s resident IT expert) went to the trouble of googling high-protein foods and then whipped them up into a veritable feast: baked tofu with a sun-dried tomato and pepita pesto, garlicky sauteed spinach, and a quinoa-lentil pilaf. Yum!

@tofumom

We have a lot of respect for Tofumom’s no-nonsense protein response:  plants, duh!  Check out this colourful array of protein-packed veg – just one of her vibrant pics from week one!

@elephantasticvegan

And you can’t talk about protein without mentioning the humble chickpea!  Bianca shared these collard green falafels, and you can find the recipe right here.

 

4th:  Catering

Accidentally Meatless

There were no catering disasters at this wedding – Michelle took a look back at her wedding, a week long celebration of vegan food (oh, and true love) culminating in this tower of five different kinds of cupcakes. Happy anniversary!

Walks, Talks & Eats

Emma’s worst catered meal was so unbelievably bad, you really do have to read it yourself to believe it. Let’s just say that this lasagne (made using actual lasagne pasta sheets!) was a huge improvement! She’s shared her recipe so you can make it yourself at home.  Look at her other daily recipe posts while you’re over there!

@suburbanvegan

Kristen pointed out that we vegans quite often miss out on little nibbles like hors d’oeuvres, so she made a whole meal consisting of delicate little appetisers!  They all looked amazing, but these fried chick’n tofu and waffles a really something else.  She’s posted some really beautiful dishes throughout the week.

 

5th:  Conversion meal

@dauliflower

Everyone tells Danielle that she makes the best grilled cheese sandwiches in the world, vegan or otherwise. Judging by this picture, I’m inclined to believe them!

@naschaer

First of all, yes, this would win anyone over.  Second, did everyone else know that banana blossom is a good fish alternative?!  You can find more details over on Natalie’s Instagram post.  She’s been serving up delicious and hearty feasts all week, so don’t head over there on an empty stomach!

@vegan.raptor

Checking in on another personal theme, if you ever watched The Wire this one’s for you! Every morning vegan.raptor posts a photo of a vegan dish inspired by the name of a character with a little clue as to who it is.  In the evening all is revealed!  This isn’t just bacon, it’s Wee-bey-con!  Play along and see if you can guess any of them!

 

6th:  Vegan Cheese is “real” cheese!

Banana Curl, Vegan Girl

Laura’s theme is ‘magical unicorn rainbow party’, and this mac’n’cheese seems to fit perfectly! Natural colourings abound, including something called butterfly pea tea powder.  You can find the recipe on her blog and check out her other great and thought-provoking posts this week.

@mrs.spaetzle

Check out this elegant looking homemade tofu chevre from Mrs S!  This would look at home on any cheese board.

@raqinthekitch

First time MoFo’er Raquella shared this tempting mac and cheese.  This was a popular dish for this prompt, but hers was the only one we spotted that was made with split peas!

 

7th:  Original vegan

@ladyfunk25

Angie made the smart choice of going for Indian cuisine today with red lentil soup and curried okra.  Let those vegetables and lentils shine!

My Apologies for the Novel

Julie turned to our vegan goddess Isa for this original vegan dish: the goddess noodles from Isa Does It.  In every blog post Julie included a drawing of her dish for Inktober, so make sure you stop by to admire her artistic skills!

@whoneedssalad

Look at this magnificent plate of food from Tania (or, to give credit where it’s due, her husband)!  As she points out, respecting your vegetables is all it takes to create a wonderful dish.  This seared cauliflower is served with steamed millet and braised thyme-scented white beans, finished with a lemon-tahini cauliflower puree.

 

8th:   You do make friends with salad

Kittens Gone Lentil

MoFor regular Susan treated us to a fabulous review of Terry Hope Romero’s Salad Samurai. Salads like this avocado tofu breakfast one are will win you friends any day of the week!

@andivert

Andrea recognises the importance of adding well-seasoned tofu to any salad. Doesn’t it just elevate every dish?

@veganistamama

Occasionally we might be persuaded to skip the tofu and instead get these black pepper candied maple bacon pecans!  Don’t they sound amazing?!  Oh, and they’re served with baby spinach, homegrown black krim tomatoes, and smoky pumpkin vinaigrette.

 

So that’s it for week one!  Week two starts today and we’re curious about what’s going on in your kitchen:  it’s Behind the Scenes week!  We’ll have another round up for you next Monday, but keep an eye on the blog for a daily cookbook giveaway Monday-Friday this week. And keep serving up that delicious food!
