VEGAN MOFO 2018: WEEK 3 ROUNDUP!

VEGAN MOFO 2018: WEEK 3 ROUNDUP!

Hello, hello, hello! Welcome to this week’s Vegan MoFo roundup for budget week, where I’ll be looking at what tricks MoFoers have up their sleeves for cutting the cost of eating (and living) as a vegan.

Sunday 16th: Pantry Meal 

Sometimes a busy life or lack of funds can mean we have to make do with what’s in the pantry for a little while but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring or unhealthy food, as demonstrated by Amber from This Vegan Lyfe

I mean, just look at those omelettes! Such a cheap dinner to make but also easy, quick, healthy and by the looks of it, fudging tasty. I’m definitely making these next time I pick up some chickpea flour. Noms.

Another dish that caught my eye comes from Janyce at AfroVeganChick,  who made these ‘fish’ balls. Check out her blog for the recipe, I can see these being a great alternative to falafels in our house. Can’t wait to make them!

17th: Super Cheap Sweets

Maaaate. Check out this strawberry meringue dessert made from discounted strawberries by Just Blogs Vegan. As well as looking incredible, it probably costs less to make than the non-vegan version as it uses chickpea juice. Sorry, aquafaba. One of these days I’ll get used to saying aquafaba. Anyways. Vegan meringue!

18th and 19th: Leftovers

Emma from Walks, Talks And Eats made a batch of seitan sausages ready for this prompt, making two different meals from them. Of course you can make all sorts of dishes using sausages; casseroles, pizza, toad in the hole, pasta etc. With these beauties how could you not make hot dogs, though? I wonder if she might post some to me, I do love a good sausage.

Holy shiitake.  Gonna Go Walk The Dogs’ neatloaf recipe sure is golden. What a brilliant idea to make meatloaf in the air fryer, from leftovers! I know you’re meant to have neatloaf with ketchup but I can’t help thinking this would make an amazing roast dinner, smothered in gravy.

Go Vegga Makes the most of the last bits of produce in the fridge with this wonderful crisper drawer risotto. This is a perfect dinner to make with whatever veg you have at the end of the week,  and looks tasty as heck.

risotto

20th: Four for $4 (or £, or €)

Oh my days, check out this buffalo cauliflower, steamed potato fries with dill and lemon garlic tahini tartar sauce made by Libby (@gogreenly318). I mean, how good does this look?! A very creative use of humble ingredients and cheap to boot. Get in my face, immediately. Immediately!

gogreenly

My Cat Loves Daiya Shows us how to feed a family of 4 for up to $4 with a delicious bowl of stir-fried tofu and vegetables with rice noodles. This cost very little to make, is filling, nutritious and looks super tasty. I must remember to make more exciting stir fries like this, rice noodles are the bomb!

21st: Scratch and Dent

HahaVegan knows what’s up. If you’re skint then check what times your supermarket puts out it’s reduced produce, as it varies from store to store. I tend to go for the last one of the day (around 7pm in most supermarkets) as it’s the most they will reduce it by at that point. Our Marks & Spencer reduces stuff by up to 90%, and because they store their produce at cooler temperatures than other supermarkets, it’s still good for days! Anyhoo, check out their post about what they managed to find for some ideas of what to make.

img_0094

Vegans need sauce’s Emily made an intriguing pizza with mushroom bacon made from discounted trumpet mushrooms, which is much cheaper than using store-bought vegan bacon. A great idea that I’ll be using next time I pick up a box of reduced mushrooms from the clearance section.

tumblr_pfae5wWXnZ1rmkuoe_500

Another post I saw from today comes from @nomeatandthreeveg in the form of these warm pizza scrolls. Totally budget-friendly and great to put in lunch boxes for adults and kids alike.

22nd: Fancy but Frugal

Happy vegans Uses today’s prompt to make a gorgeous chocolate lava cake which I would love to cram into my face right now. Also, love the fork!

IMG_0385

And last, but certainly not least, Jess from Ichiban vegan went all out on today’s prompt to make a frugal vegan high tea! Go check out her blog to see the lovely scones, finger sandwiches and biscuits she made.

That’s all from me for now, looking forward to seeing what everyone posts for the final week of Vegan MoFo 2018.

@Rosamiex

VEGANMOFO 2018: WEEK 2 ROUNDUP!

VEGANMOFO 2018: WEEK 2 ROUNDUP!

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

@chloefairchildcooks

We could not have this prompt and not give you a mac and cheese post, and what a beauty!

 

Plant Based living

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!

Adventures in Veganism

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 

@anewdayvegan

Who needs gluten when you have this amazing Chocolate Cream Pie?

 

@zuckerbaby.1

Almond orange cake soaked in spiced syrup, this GF cake is from her cookbook Vegan Indulgence.

 

@wildkindvegan

Cindy made us these gluten free donuts, thanks Cindy!

 

Day 11: Dessert without added Sugar 

Ichiban Vegan

Who wants a plate of this sugar-free strawberry and peach crumble? I’ll take two please!

P1030935_edited

 

@culinarywhispers

These peanut butter and banana cookies are perfectly sweet on their own without any added sugar.

 

@frugal.vegan.fitness

This sweet lentil breakfast cake, sweetened with dates, has me intrigued.

 

Day 12: Spicy without Chillies 

@bakovegan

How about some Chai Spiced Raw Carrot soup?

 

@theveggtable

This delicious creamy pasta is spiced with horseradish, an interesting choice!

 

 

@deecaranichole

This dish is spiced with ginger, black pepper and cumin.

 

Day 13: Snacks without the Packaging 

@idunsyn

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?!

 

@atinyhousevegan

Pistachios are such a great snack, and all natural packaging!

 

 

The Opposite of Indifference

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 

Vegans Need Sauce

Sometimes it is as simple as making the dishes we love without adding salt! Here is a hearty, low-sodium dinner that looks delicious!

image

 

@clare.burgess

Clare is using seaweed to bring some umami flavour without adding salt.

 

@veganbbn

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 

@diannewenz

This amazing looking kimchi fried rice is also gout-friendly, clearly dietary restrictions don’t have to mean bland or boring!

Just Blogs Vegan

Just look at this beautiful pot of FODMAP friendly ratatouille, no onion or garlic to be seen!

 

Herbivores Heaven

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!

VeganMoFo 2018 Blogrolls!

VeganMoFo 2018 Themes & Prompts!

VeganMoFo 2018 Themes & Prompts!

VeganMoFo 2018 is coming this September! We’re excited to get it underway, and hope you are too.

As in the last few years, we’ve created a list of weekly themes and daily prompts to inspire you – however the main goal is to post as much vegan food throughout the month as you can, and you’re welcome to create your own theme or even go freestyle! So the options you have are:

1) Weekly themes (which are listed below!). You can interpret these themes whichever way you like, and use them to inspire your posts!

2) Daily prompts (which are also listed below). These tie in with the weekly themes, but give you more specific ideas to follow. You can use all of them, or just a few!

3) Choose your own theme. You don’t need to follow any of our themes if you don’t want to – come up with your own and use that instead! So long as it’s vegan, everything goes.

4) A mixture of them all  Feel free to use the themes as a loose guideline, or choose ones you like the look of and create your own inspiration for the other days!

You can also participate on whichever platform you like – blog, Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, all participation is encouraged, just follow the #veganmofo18 hashtag.

We’ll have more info on sign-ups for you soon, but in the meantime here are the prompts:

 

Saturday 1st: Introduce you! –  Tell us a bit about you, your veganism, and what you like to cook and eat!

Week 1 – Inspiration Week! (Sunday 2nd to Saturday 8th)- This week is all about using different things as your inspiration for great food

Sunday 2nd: Emoji Inspired – Take an emoji and make food inspired by it! Go simple, and eat an avocado, or go all out and make one inspired by a funny face

3rd: Leader of a country, place, or group – whether you’re inspired by an ancient king, or your school headteacher, what food can you make inspired by them?

4th: Artist inspired – Art comes in many forms – how can you use it to inspire you?

5th: Inspiring cookbooks – Do you have a cookbook that’s inspired your vegan cookery? Share some food you love from it!

6th: The Anti-Vegan – we’ve all heard the statements. “But protein!”, “I could never give up bacon”, and so many more. Make a meal to counter these!

7th: Colour – In past years, we’ve had red themes, and green themes, but this year you get to pick your own colour! Use it to inspire a meal.

8th: Your own flops – Have you ever made a recipe or an idea, and it didn’t turn out so well? Use this as an inspiration to improve on it, and show us how it turned out.

Week 2: Dietary & Lifestyle Restrictions (Sunday 9th to Saturday 15th) – We love eating all the vegan food we can, but it’s good to learn how to cook for those who may have allergies or intolerances –  and challenge ourselves in the process.

Sunday 9th: Creamy without Nuts – A lot of vegan “cream” has cashews in, which is no good if you’re catering for a nut allergy. Can you make a creamy dish without nuts?

10th: Baking without Gluten – If you were to bake for a friend with a gluten allergy, what would you make? Challenge yourself to bake something without using gluten!

11th: Dessert without added Sugar – Whilst we love the sugary, chocolatey rich desserts as much as the next person, some people have to lower their sugar intake for a variety of reasons. What could you make for them?

12th: Spicy without Chillies – If you couldn’t eat chillies, how would you spice your food? Can you make a curry taste good without the addition of peppers?

13th: Snacks without the Packaging – For the environment’s sake, it’s good to cut down on all the plastic packaging. Show us some snacks that don’t come trussed in lots of plastic!

14th: Low salt, full flavour – Whilst salt isn’t the evil it was once proclaimed to be, some have to cut down on it. Can you show us something savoury without the salt?

15th: Free From Day – What other dietary restrictions have you come across? Have a friend who can’t eat nightshades? Someone on the low-FODMAP diet? Show us what you make.

Week 3: Budget Week (Sunday 16th to Saturday 22nd) – This week, we’re going to prove once and for all that veganism is affordable!

Sunday 16th: Pantry Meal – Don’t go out and buy anything fresh for this meal, cook something just using the contents of your storecupboards!

17th: Super Cheap Sweets – Being on a budget doesn’t mean not having dessert. Make us something sweet, but cheap.

18th: Leftovers, day 1 – Today, make a meal with the intention of using the leftovers for something else…

19th: Leftovers, day 2 – …and now, show us how to use those leftovers!

20th: Four for $4 (or £, or €) – Can you make a meal that serves four people for less than four dollars (or your equivalent currency!) Show us how.

21st: Scratch and Dent – Have you had any good finds in the clearance section? Perhaps you bought “imperfect” produce and it turned out pretty great. Make a meal inspired by something you found reduced.

22nd: Fancy but Frugal – You don’t need to spend a fortune to impress!

Week 4: Occasions Week (Sunday 23rd to Saturday 29th)- We love a good celebration! This week focuses on those special occasions in your life.

Sunday 23rd: Sunday Dinner – Did you ever have a “Sunday Dinner” tradition? Make a vegan version.

24th: Pot Luck Perfection – What would you bring to a pot luck?

25th: Birthday Bash – Would you rather others make food for you on your birthday? Or do you like to do it yourself? And what would you like?

26th: Favourite Holiday – What’s your favourite holiday ever? What do you like to make for it?

27th: TV Trays – A sit-down meal might be nice, but sometimes getting cosy with food and netflix is also needed. What’s your TV dinner?

28th: Prep ahead Picnic – If you’re going for a picnic or a roadtrip, what do you pack? What do you make?

29th: Brunch & Munch – Because brunch is so awesome, show us your brunch meals!

and finally…

Sunday 30th: Kitchen TourNow the month is concluding, show us where the magic has been happening!

July & August MiniMoFo

The latest MiniMoFo taps into your sweet tooth…we’re looking for Desserts. Do you like your desserts sugary sweet? Or more palate cleansingly refreshing? Would you rather cake, or ice cream? Or both? Have you eaten an amazing dessert at a restaurant? Or did you make one yourself? There are a million questions and you can answer them in the hashtag #MiniMoFo. Check back before the official VeganMoFo month for a roundup!

Because of the VeganMoFo starting in September, this MiniMoFo will finish on August 24th. This gives you (and us!) extra time to prep for the foodiest month of the year!

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 two month.

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!

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!

 

December MiniMoFo Roundup

December MiniMoFo Roundup

Welcome to 2018! We hope you all enjoyed the holiday season and ate lots of delicious food – and from all the MiniMoFo contributions, we are pleased to see all the baking you’ve been doing/eating!

My Apologies for the Novel

Julie got someone else to do the festive baking for her, and headed to Vegan Treats, an all vegan bakery, where she got a Christmas tree cheesecake-on-a-stick (really! Check out the picture on her blog) and this adorable reindeer cake.

@crumbs.and.caramel

Look at this beautiful chocolate fudge cake from Crumbs and Caramel, topped with frosted berries which make it oh-so-festive!

Herbivore’s Heaven

Jenny went out for a festive afternoon tea – she’s quite the connoisseur of vegan afternoon teas and is keen to point out that this was a rare hummus-free tea, a sign of a truly creative host! Doesn’t it look quaint and tasty?

@raisinsecte

Sophie made a vegan bûche des fêtes – which looks amazingly chocolatey and rich and tasty!

@notfunatparties

Jenny used the Chocolate Yoghurt Bundt Cake recipe from Isa’s Superfun Times cookbook and added mint glaze, sea salt flakes, and raspberry dust to make a beautiful Christmassy cake.

@vegfullife

Hands up who else made sugar cookies this month? A classic for the season, and Kristy’s look delicious topped with buttercream and sprinkles!

Just Bloggs

Justine’s mince pies have homemade pastry and mincemeat – with cranberries for that extra festive touch! Find the recipe on her blog.

@onewindowsarah

Sarah made vegan and gluten free snickerdoodles following an Oh She Glows recipe. Snickerdoodles are great year round, but the spices make them perfect for festivities!

@dimsimkitty

Susan also used the Superfun Times cookbook to make these cranberry spice oatmeal cookies. Cranberries keep cropping up this month and for good reason – they’re delicious!

@veganfeastcatering

Sprinkled with sugar, Janet’s blueberry scones are sparkly and beautiful. Sweet scones are a tasty way to start the day!

@ksp_vgn

Kristen’s array of vegan Christmas cookies is quite breathtaking! Where would you start first? I want to try them all!

@vegan_raptor

Eat the biscuits, you must. Vegan Raptor’s cookies seem to have been held hostage, but they look good enough to fight for.

@lisarturner

Biscotti are another holiday favourite – here are Lisa’s maple-walnut biscotti cooling before being iced. Could you wait?

@veganistamama

Veganista Mama made marzipan from scratch! And coated it in chocolate – which sounds like the perfect snack (and look at the cute snowman plate!)

@juli.ane_x

How about some savoury Christmas baking? Here’s Juli’s Christmas centrepiece – which is quite honestly beautiful! It’s a Moroccan spiced spinach and pumpkin pie and sounds delicious.

@happylittlelunch

As always, Happy Little Lunch has come through with a wonderful lunch for her kid! She’s also included little sugar cookies to decorate to fit into this month’s theme.

@oohsarracuda

Candy canes are so very festive, and stirred into chocolate chip cookies? Yes please! Sarra’s candy cane cookies look amazing.

@ladyfunk25

More cookies? Er, of course! You can never have too many cookies. These crinkle cookies are so pretty, too!

@ambereatsveg

Not only do these cookies look tasty, they also come with a history! Amber veganised her grandmother’s recipe for Mexican Wedding Cookies – veganising family recipes is a wonderful way to bring people together.

@yixzyy

And where would Christmas be without some gingerbread? Emma made these tiny gingerbread men for Christmas!

Living the Dream

If you’ve been following Jen’s story this year, you’ll know that it’s been really rough for her and her family – living in the Keys and being hit very hard by Irma. That makes it even more impressive that she baked hundreds of sugar and gingerbread cookies to give out to the community! How amazing is she?

@vegansneedsauce

Just take a minute to look at that gorgeous gooey chocolate frosting. Ooooh. And doesn’t the raspberry compliment it perfectly? No wonder Emily’s cakes went down a treat at her party!

@vegandollhouse

Isn’t this a work of art?! Vegan Dollhouse’s carousel is stunning, and must have taken a lot of hard work!

@hcmerenda

Crinkle cookies again, because I just love crinkle cookies. Helen made two varieties – chocolate mint and chocolate cardamom. Yum!

 

Thank you everyone who took part in this month’s MiniMoFo – it’s been packed full of some delicious bakes! Stay tuned to find out all about January’s MiniMoFo…

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!
