This week was all about catering for dietary and lifestyle restrictions. Whether that be cooking for those with allergies or intolerance, we want everyone to be able to enjoy all of the delicious vegan food they can! Don’t forget to keep using the #veganmofo18 so we don’t miss out on your posts.
Day 9: Creamy without nuts
We could not have this prompt and not give you a mac and cheese post, and what a beauty!
Although not strictly following the prompts, this butternut hummus fits right in, just grab some crackers or carrot sticks and you’re good to go!
Despite the name, coconut is actually not a nut – it’s a fruit! And a favourite of vegans everywhere for making things creamy and delicious, like this Thai Red Curry.
Day 10: Baking without Gluten
Who needs gluten when you have this amazing Chocolate Cream Pie?
Almond orange cake soaked in spiced syrup, this GF cake is from her cookbook Vegan Indulgence.
Cindy made us these gluten free donuts, thanks Cindy!
Day 11: Dessert without added Sugar
Who wants a plate of this sugar-free strawberry and peach crumble? I’ll take two please!
These peanut butter and banana cookies are perfectly sweet on their own without any added sugar.
This sweet lentil breakfast cake, sweetened with dates, has me intrigued.
Day 12: Spicy without Chillies
How about some Chai Spiced Raw Carrot soup?
This delicious creamy pasta is spiced with horseradish, an interesting choice!
This dish is spiced with ginger, black pepper and cumin.
Day 13: Snacks without the Packaging
Homemade is definitely the way to go if you want to reduce your packaging. Apparently these were supposed to be granola bars but when it looks this tasty who really cares?!
Pistachios are such a great snack, and all natural packaging!
A great way of reducing your packaging is to shop at bulk stores, and many of them let you BYO container too. Let’s be honest, how many of us eat nooch straight from the jar as a snack…?
Day 14: Low salt, full flavour
Sometimes it is as simple as making the dishes we love without adding salt! Here is a hearty, low-sodium dinner that looks delicious!
Clare is using seaweed to bring some umami flavour without adding salt.
Is it cheating to choose a dessert for low-salt day? Maybe, but this sunflower seed based ice-cream looks too good not to share.
Day 15: Free From Day
This amazing looking kimchi fried rice is also gout-friendly, clearly dietary restrictions don’t have to mean bland or boring!
Just look at this beautiful pot of FODMAP friendly ratatouille, no onion or garlic to be seen!
Look, this one is pretty much the antithesis of a “free-from” meal but how could we go past this super looking breakfast featured on Jenny’s blog – the annual guest MoFo post from Dr HH to boot.
And we’re over half way there, stay strong MoFo’ers – you’ve got this!
