VeganMoFo 2018: Week 1 Roundup!

VeganMoFo 2018: Week 1 Roundup!

Inspiration Week has come to an end, and it’s safe to say there have been some very inspirational dishes in the first eight days of VeganMoFo 2018! Let’s take a look at some of the highlights in our first weekly roundup post – make sure you’re following all our participants so you don’t miss a single delicious post! And keep using #veganmofo18 to help us find you!

 

Day 1: Introduce you!

Walks, Talks, & Eats

Emma is one of our hard working VeganMoFo organisers, so you should probably get to know her! She’s posting on Instagram, as well as numerous delicious recipes on her blog, make sure you’re following along!

This Vegan Lyfe

You might have followed Amber on Instagram during last year’s MoFo, but this year she’s back on her blog as well and we couldn’t be happier! Get to know her a little more in this post, and also learn how to make this swimming rama!

@jena_sinclair

Let’s welcome VeganMoFo first timer Jena, who is participating with lots of amazing illustrations!

 

Day 2: Emoji Inspired

Vegan Ha Ha

The simple heart emoji is a classic – and here it is in the form a chocolate cake topped with raspberries. *insert heart-eyes emoji here*

@garrickstegner

Don’t these pancakes look almost a little too perfect?! How come mine never look that good? Amazing job, Garrick!

@bonnie_rabbits

The pumpkin emoji was a popular choice today, and here is Bonnie’s pumpkin-inspired dish. Pumpkin lasagna with mushrooms and caramelised onions sounds pretty good to me!

 

Day 3: Leader of a country, place, or group

@globallookingglass

Rosie the Riveter needs a protein packed meal more than anyone! I’m sure she’d be happy with this quinoa, tofu,and broccoli dish.

@things2eat

Of course, there are great leaders in our own homes and families too – Moon made this gazpacho and tofu-egg salad in honour of her mother-in-law, and we’d love to join them for a meal!

Food for Dissertating

Of course, there’s no obligation to follow our daily prompts or weekly themes – Food for Dissertating is posting about packed lunches all month. Not only does this look like a delicious lunch, but I can confirm from personal research that the recipe for these chocolate hazelnut oat bites is to die for!

 

Day 4: Artist inspired

KZCakes

KZ shared this beautiful Pitaya bowl, which definitely looks like a work of art to me! Plus there are some philosophical musings on art and perception.

@michelleisvegan

Top marks to Michelle for transforming a bunch of leftovers into a Rothko!

Coastal Vegan

Look at these Mary Blair-inspired cookies that Clare made! There were even diagrams involved!

 

Day 5: Inspiring cookbooks

@suburbanvegan

Oh, hello, bookshelf of my dreams! But which one is Kristen’s favourite?!

@theveggtable

Check out this dish from a 1970s cookbook, originally called ‘Governor’s Lady Deviled Crab’ and now veganised for the modern times!

@oohsarracuda

Sarra is posting on the theme of vegan travel, and shared some of the cookbooks she’s picked up on the road – including non-vegan ones, which she promptly veganises, as you can see from her famous bicsuits!

 

Day 6: The Anti-Vegan

Vegans Eat Yummy Food Too!

How does Sandy deal with people who claim to hate tofu? She turns tofu into a pizza base! Check out the recipe for these tofu pizza bites!

@idunsyn

Burgers featured pretty heavily on this day, and here’s just one example of an amazing burger that can win over any meat eater!

@vegan.raptor

Meanwhile, Vegan Raptor continues to post Buffy-based puns alongside tasty vegan dishes as part of his Buffy Menu theme. I’m sure we can get Buffy to slay the anti-vegan brigade!

 

Day 7: Colour

Vegan Dollhouse

If you follow Vegan Dollhouse on Instagram or her blog, you’ll expect nothing less than adorable food at all times. Just check out these purple steamed buns!

@culinarywhispers

Have you ever been served a yellow lasagna before?! Learn how to do it on this post from Wister!

@emilyfishy

And why settle for one colour when you can eat the whole rainbow? Emily leads the way with this colourful bowl.

 

Day 8: Your own flops

Downright Vegan

Most of us have probably experienced a disaster which almost cost us a beloved dish or utensil. But you’ve got to have the courage to try again, as we can see from this beautiful looking focaccia!

@wildkindvegan

Cindy has been thwarted in the past when making crispy fried tofu, but now she’s really shown it who’s boss! Find out her secrets, and get the recipe for her BBQ nut butter sauce as an added bonus!

@ladyfunk25

All this week, Angie has been veganising some classic Pennsylvania Dutch recipes, and she finished up with this shoofly pie, which apparently tastes just like gingerbread! Yum!

 

Here’s to another amazing week of VeganMoFo 2018!

Power Plates Giveaway

July & August MiniMoFo Roundup!

July & August MiniMoFo Roundup!

VeganMoFo is just around the corner, but you guys certainly haven’t been slacking! In July and August we invited you to share some delicious desserts with us, and, as always, you’ve delivered. Feast your eyes on all of these treats – but don’t let them distract you too much from your MoFo prep!

 

@oohsarracuda

Have you ever had a dessert so good that it caused everyone to fall silent? Behold Sarra’s cinnamon and vanilla shortcake with sugared blackberries and whipped cream.

 

@notfunatparties

How good does this raw strawberry cheesecake look?! Jenny was celebrating a special occasion (happy anniversary!), so she turned to Isa for the perfect dessert recipe.

 

Crumbs & Caramel

Sticking with seasonal fruits, Bronwyn made this sensational upside down cherry almond cake. Check out the recipe on her blog if you fancy a slice!

 

@rawfullyrooted

And here’s another dessert for any raw vegans out there! This watermelon cake looks so refreshing!

 

@valerieminne

Valerie has shared loads of dreamy desserts in the past two months, and who could resist this colourful raspberry and blueberry mousse?

 

@vegfullife

Here at VeganMoFo HQ, we’re huge fans of Kristy’s food -and she has outdone herself with these amazing dessert tacos! These are lace cookies shaped like tacos and filled with cocowhip, fruit, and chocolate.

 

@onerawbite

This deconstructed blueberry pie looks insanely cute – not to mention delicious! And Jennifer has promised more desserts during September, so stay tuned…

 

@lisarturner

Lisa was served this mocha ice cream with nuts and chocolate on all-vegan cruise – it sounds like she’s truly living the dream!

 

@vegan.raptor

Everyone loves dessert – and that includes the Slayer! Here’s Buffy trying to decide between two tempting desserts. Which one would you choose?

 

@emflower.x

Emma managed to get her hands on vegan mille feuille! Presumably you’re all as jealous as I am…

 

@vegandollhouse

This MiniMoFo prompt was pretty much made for Robin, as her Instagram is full of cute, colourful desserts. These cupcakes are just one example of her amazing work.

 

Living the Dream

Jen had a bit of an adventure trying to make this Elvis cake to celebrate her colleague’s birthday…we think you’ll agree that it was worth all the trouble though!

 

Herbivores’ Heaven

Jenny shared the top five desserts she’s been served, including this incredible chocolatey concoction!

 

@ms.spaetzle

There’s been something of a heatwave in Europe this summer, and you know what that means – ice cream at every opportunity! It’s basic survival, people!

 

@activereflections

Dominique is teaching her daughter an important lesson: when life gives you imperfect cakes, turn them into a trifle!

 

@idunsyn

Angela offers up these ginger cookies two ways: as they are, or transformed into ice cream sandwiches. Which would you go for?

 

@ambereatsveg

Amber usually skips dessert, but we can see why she made an exception for these deep fried Oreos. Wow!

 

April MiniMoFo Roundup

April MiniMoFo Roundup

We hope that Spring has truly sprung where you are, without too many of those cumbersome rainy days. But at least you guys all have some great rainy day food up your sleeves, which you shared with us for April’s MiniMoFo! Let’s see what’s been cooking.

 

@yixzyy

Emma comforts herself with the frothiest, most delicious looking hot chocolate around! It’s almost worth having rainy days when we get to stay in with warm drinks like this!

 

@dimsimkitty

Susan is in the Southern Hemisphere, but she’s still getting rainy days too, and cheering herself up with this delicious plate – mashed potatoes, roasted green beans, tom tofu and golden gravy. I can’t get over how good that tofu looks!

 

@meettheshannons

Annie has also nailed the Spring comfort food with this sesame chicken seitan wonton soup. Perfect for a gloomy rainy day!

 

@ambereatsveg

Amber loves Spring rain just as much as Spring veg – personally, I’d take this delicious looking bowl of food over a downpour!

 

@vegan.raptor

Vegan Raptor (and Wolverine) beat the rainy day blues with this slap-up Irish breakfast in Dublin. Look at that bacon!

 

@crumbs.and.caramel

There’s nothing like making a hearty dal with the rain pounding against the window, and this offering from Bronwyn looks perfect. Check out her recipe for this red lentil and cauliflower dal with coconut milk.

 

@because.tribbles.arent.real

Like many of us, Lyn doesn’t always feel like venturing to the shops in the rain, so here’s her cherry pie, made entirely from ingredients she already had in the house. We’d all like to have such a well-stocked pantry!

 

@oohsarracuda

With the rain comes all the fresh veg at the farmer’s market, where Sarra got all the ingredients for this brown butter sunchoke soup with crispy kale and roasted hazelnuts. Yum!

 

My Apologies for the Novel

Julie made a couple of rainy day dishes for April’s MiniMoFo, but personally I can’t look beyond this bowl of potatoes, asparagus, and chicken pieces. Could there be a more comforting dish?!

 

Living the Dream @ Deer Run

Before being hit by wildfire, Jen actually did have some rain and whipped up this amazing looking potato and cabbage soup and Rubens. Here’s hoping for calmer conditions in Big Pine Key from now on.

 

Thank you all for brightening up the April showers! Stay tuned for May’s MiniMoFo theme announcement!

March MiniMoFo!

March MiniMoFo!

March’s MiniMoFo theme is: Go green! This theme is inspired by Spring, which we hope is just around the corner, but you can interpret it however you please – use any green seasonal vegetables where you are, make something festive in celebration of St Patrick’s Day, whatever you like!

As always, everyone can participate in MiniMoFo, and newcomers are always welcome to join in – the only rule is to keep it vegan! Use the hashtag #MiniMoFo on social media, and link to your blog post in the comments below so that we can come and see what you’ve been cooking and feature you in our roundup post at the end of the month.
