VeganMoFo 2018 Blogrolls!

VeganMoFo 2018 Blogrolls!

Well VeganMoFo’ers, it’s almost time! We hope you’re as excited as we are, and getting all your final preparations done. It’s going to be a busy month full of delicious food – and new online friends! A huge part of VeganMoFo is the wonderful community, and the opportunity to fill your social media (and life!) with like-minded folk. Please make sure to follow your fellow participants on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/YouTube/their blogs, and look out for anyone posting under #veganmofo18. As always, we’ll be posting weekly round up posts here as well with some of our highlights.

Without further ado, here are the people you’re going to be posting alongside this September.

Here’s your Official 2018 Blogroll, where everyone who registered for VeganMoFo is listed by category (blog, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook). Get following!

Want to see if you have any neighbours participating this year? Check out the Where in the World? blogroll, organised by country (and state in the USA).

And don’t forget that not everybody is following the daily prompts or weekly themes. Some of you are flying solo with an exciting range of Individual Themes – which one sounds the most tempting to you?!

You can also find all Instagram posts right here on the blog as well – just make sure to use #veganmofo18, and you’ll appear on our Instagram Feed!

We have an OPML file of the RSS feeds from this year’s bloggers – find it here, and if you’d like to know how to use the file, check out this post!

Thank you very much to everyone who’s signed up for VeganMoFo 2018 – let’s make it the best one ever!

2018 Graphics

We loved last year’s graphics by Tansy Rees so much that we’ve given them a little 2018 update! These graphics are here for you to use on your blog or social media to show that you’re participating in VeganMoFo – so please share away!

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. Happy cooking!

February MiniMoFo Roundup

February MiniMoFo Roundup

February’s MiniMoFo was all about showing love through food – and unsurprisingly, you all outdid yourselves! Let’s take a look at what our VeganMoFo’ers made for their nearest and dearest in February.

@crumbs.and.caramel

This month there have been some delicious baked goods courtesy of C&C, but there’s always room for a little savoury treat too – like this heartbeet hummus, winning the hearts of her kids! .

Food for Dissertating

There’s nothing like treating yourself to a special homemade lunch! Check out this three tier bento with chilli, chips and trimmings. Vegan sour cream should always be served in a heart-shaped pot! If you’re looking for packed lunch inspiration, be sure to check out this blog.

@vegan.raptor

Who will the slayer share this buff-ito with, Angel or Spike?!

@ambereatsveg

As Amber points out, love isn’t all about grand gestures, it can be something as simple as regularly doing nice things for your loved ones. Like bringing them purple potato fries, for example.

@mrs.spaetzle

Show some love for this hearty plate of food! Mrs Spaetzle is out to impress with these oven-baked chickpeas and eggplant cubes on top of tomato sauce and spaghetti. Yum!

My Apologies for the Novel

Julie whipped up this exciting feast for her beau, and also shared some pictures of her feline friends looking extremely snuggly! Check out her post for more food and more cats.

@ladyfunk25

Angie was well aware of the impracticalities of making a slap-up meal on a Wednesday evening, so she prepared a quick and easy Valentine’s meal that was still really impressive. Feast your eyes on that lemon pepper fettucini!

Living the Dream

Jen was back on the blog and in the kitchen this month, with an update on their post-Irma progress, and some delicious chocolate meringues.

@yixzyy

Cookies within cookies – what better way to show that you love someone?!

Herbivores’ Heaven

Jenny revealed the way to her heart – chocolate and pretzel donuts. Yum!

@veganfeastcatering

Check out these spring rolls with berry dipping sauce created by Janet- quite the delicacy!

@vegfullife

And February is not only about Valentine’s Day! Here’s a pretty spectacular birthday cookie cake, lovingly made by Kristy.

 

We love your culinary efforts! Stay tuned for March’s theme!

February MiniMoFo!

February MiniMoFo!

It’s time for the next MiniMoFo already!  February’s theme is: Food is Love. Maybe you’re planning a fancy Valentine’s Day dinner with a special someone, but we’re also celebrating non-romantic love – share your Galentine’s brunch, food gifts for the people who brighten up your day, or even edible treats for your canine companions! Show some love with some delicious food, ad let us see what you’ve created!

Remember, MiniMoFo is open to anyone – whether you’ve previously participated or not! Just make it vegan, and either use the hashtag #MiniMoFo on social media or post the link in the comments below to be featured in the roundup at the end of them month!

 

January MiniMoFo Roundup

January MiniMoFo Roundup

It looks like all our VeganMoFo friends are starting 2018 as you mean to go on – with all the delicious food! We’ve been bowled over by your efforts for January’s MiniMoFo, all based on the subject of ‘creating warmth.’ Take a look at what you all came up with!

 

@dimsimkitty

Susan is in the middle of a glorious Australian summer, so she got creative with this prompt – here’s her grape, pineapple, cucumber and coconut smoothie, with a warming kick of ginger!

 

Adventures in Veganism

Here’s a more traditionally warm drink – tea!  Katie tells us about her love of tea, and how scones make the perfect accompaniment to a good cuppa!

 

My Apologies for the Novel

Soup warms the soul as well as the body!  We can just imagine hunkering down with a bowl of Julie’s chickpea noodle soup and feeling instantly better about the winter and everything else too!

 

@mrs.spaetzle

And another soothing wintry soup! Can’t you just taste it?!

 

@veganistamama

Veganista Mama was really treating her kids with this tomato soup, served with grilled cheese sandwiches and garlic-stuffed hasselback potatoes. She even made her own cheese!

 

@crumbs.and.caramel

Sticking with soul-soothing dishes – any takers for this roasted garlic and vegetable stew with red lentils and savoury tomatoes?  The recipe’s available on Instagram so you can have a whirl yourself at home!

 

@yixzyy

Who doesn’t love making use of their slow cooker in the winter? Emma made this sweet potato dhal topped with roasted cashews.  Stay tuned for the recipe over at Walks, Talks and Eats!

 

@pepajobo

Feast your eyes on this plate of comfort food!  Smoky mushrooms sound like the perfect thing to keep you warm!

 

@ambereatsveg

Amber whipped up some Creamy NoHoney Mustard Roasted Root Veg, and we really like the look of it!  Check out those colours!

 

@nicolearciello

Could anything be more exciting than mac’n’cheese pizza?!  Nicole is showing us all how pizza night should be done!

 

@juli.ane_x

Of course there were some good spicy dishes shared this month too – like these enchiladas from Juli(ane). We definitely approve of the amount of cheese on there!

 

@gogreenly318

And don’t miss this black bean and black eye pea chilli from Libby.  Cornbread croutons sound like the fanciest and most delicious thing ever!

 

@vegfullife

And BBQ dishes have a good warm kick to them as well, like Kirsty’s BBQ soy curls with ranch dressing. Yum!

 

@veganfeastcatering

Behold Janet’s saag aloo with soy curls – and an extra dusting of chilli!  Perfect for keeping the cold at bay!

 

Coastal Vegan

Clare takes us on the journey into the world of fermenting – here’s her green peppercorn mustard, and you can read more about her pico de gallo endeavour over on her blog.

 

@notfunatparties

And it’s not all savoury dishes – check out this lavender balsamic blueberry pie that Jenny made! What a work of art!

 

Stay tuned for February’s MiniMoFo theme!

December MiniMoFo

December MiniMoFo

It’s that time of year again when for many of us the weather is getting colder and colder, and there’s a big winter holiday right around the corner.  We’re urging you all to keep warm this December with our MiniMoFo theme:

Festive baking!

It doesn’t matter which occasion you’re celebrating, or if you’re just looking for an excuse to eat treats – we want to see your baked goods!

Remember that anyone can participate in MiniMoFo, whether you registered for VeganMoFo or not – so tell your friends!  And don’t forget to use the hashtag #MiniMoFo on social media or post your link in the comments below, and check back at the end of the month for our roundup.

 

 

November MiniMoFo Round Up!

November MiniMoFo Round Up!

We’re happy to see that you weren’t too exhausted from VeganMoFo – lots of you embraced November’s lazy MiniMoFo theme!  Let’s check in on what’s been cooking!

@notfunatparties

Lazy food needn’t mean junk food – check out this plate of veg, rice and chick’n!  This is a lot more effort than I put in when I’m feeling lazy, so it’s extra impressive!

@vegan.raptor

Vegan Raptor took Ron Swanson for a lazy Sunday brunch. Ron has really come round to veganism – he looks ready to dive into those pancakes!

@dimsimkitty

MoFo regular Susan didn’t disappoint with this easy and delicious cheeseboard. Smoked sesame cheese sounds quite special, doesn’t it?!

@juli.ane_x

Juli travels like every Brit – too lazy to pack a lunch, you’ve got to treat yourself to a meal deal!  Fortunately Pret has plenty of options for the vegan on the go.

Coastal Vegan

Clare undertook some serious research into new ready meals from Waitrose in the UK – and one of them contains chicken pieces from the Vegetarian Butcher!  What a time to be alive!  Check out the full review on her blog.

@ladyfunk25

Angie has the right idea with this quick and easy stir fry made from whatever’s left in the fridge!

@veganistamama

Kimchi and black bean nachos sound extremely exciting!  Veganista Mama just threw these together at the last minute when she realised it was National Nachos Day – now that’s good improvising!

@vegfullife

Kristy made a big pot of goulash for her lazy meal!  This contains red lentil pasta, beefy crumbles and fire roasted tomatoes – it sounds absolutely delicious!

@ambereatsveg

Amber was feeling under the weather, so she was sticking to simple, lazy dishes, like this Asian coleslaw. Doesn’t it look sensational?!

@mosolyoga

This raw veggie bowl looks so refreshing – and so easy to throw together!

@pennyrakau

Doesn’t a fancy jar make all the difference? These PB&J overnight oats could be served in a fancy cafe, but Penny knows it takes mere minutes to whip up at home – including the homemade jam!

@mrs.spaetzle

Mrs S didn’t only make a lazy dish using whatever was in the fridge, she also invented a new meal!  Introducing “linner” – when you get home and it’s too early for dinner, but far too late for lunch.  We’ve all been there!

@twohappyrabbits

Our favourite travelling vegans threw this together on the road:  a tofu egg salad with pita, pickles and pea shoots!  Look at those vibrant colours!

@veg_domesticgoddess

Kira knows that lazy food isn’t just about having a hearty tempeh chilli in your freezer for emergencies, it’s also about minimising the washing up by using the same pan to heat the chilli and the quesadillas!

@veganfeastcatering

I can’t believe it’s still warm enough for ice lollies anywhere, but Janet’s proving me wrong by digging one of these blackberry and merlot pops out of the freezer for a lazy treat!

One Raw Bite

Jennifer’s lazy post was one that she hadn’t got round to posting for eight months!  This review of Philadelphia restaurant Circles appears to be worth the wait though – just look at the pad thai!

My Apologies for the Novel

I didn’t think anyone would manage to combine our MiniMoFo theme with Thanksgiving, but Julie proved me wrong!  Her post combines a quick and easy mac’n’cheese with a hearty Thanksgiving plate.  You can find out more on her blog.

Herbivores’ Heaven

There’s nothing better than a good lazy brunch, and over at HH you can read about not one but two all-vegan, all-you-can-eat buffet brunches!

Living the Dream @ Deer Run

Jen gives us another post-hurricane update along with a recipe for bread that’s so lazy, you can make it in your crock pot while you run around doing a million errands!

 

Not such a lazy month after all!  Thanks to everyone who has shared a recipe or picture this month.  Stay tuned for an announcement on December’s MiniMoFo theme!
