Week 1 Roundup!

Week 1 Roundup!

The first official week of VeganMoFo 2019 is over! Ok, week and a bit, but we figured we’d include it all in one round-up. We’ve already seen some amazing food and got glimpses into your vegan lives, and are looking forward to seeing more over the next few weeks! Some of you are following the prompts, and some are doing your own thing, and both are perfect! Here are some of the highlights…

Day 1: Introduce Yourself

One Raw Bite

Jennifer has been doing VeganMoFo for the past four years, and this years theme is all about her CSA box. Don’t know what that is? Head to her blog for a handy guide!

Herbivore’s Heaven

VeganMoFo’s very own Jenny has a Japanese theme to her MoFo-ing this year. Check out her blog to find out how creme brulee fits into it!

@teaandsympatico

Caroline’s theme for the month is books and reading…and food and drink to go with that. Sounds pretty perfect right? She starts off with this chocolate chip marzipan cookie – yum!

Day 2: Kitchen Tour

Recipes For Self Care

Look at this beautiful kitchen! The greenery especially makes it feel very cared for and lovely!

Food For Dissertating

A blog full of lunch ideas? You’ll never run out of things to make again! This is a 3 tier bento box, and you can find the recipes for all the goodies on the blog link above!

My Apologies for the Novel

Julie’s blog is pretty great, because every post ends with a cat picture! So it’s no surprise to find these cat oven mitts and pot holders in her kitchen…but aren’t they cute?

Day 3: Biscuits/Cookies

Veginspired

These cookies are chocolate mocha flavour, and look so simple to make! Just combine the ingredients and go. Yum!

The Singular Vegan

Being very “Bake-Off” themed today and using a Paul Hollywood recipe! These gingernut biscuits were veganised from his recipe, and sound perfect!

@openmikepunkrock

Here at VeganMoFo, we don’t mind if your food is bought or made – so long as it’s vegan! And this “chocodoodle” Mike bought looks and sounds amazing!

Day 4: Cake!

@veganpicnics

Hands up who loves a good picnic? You’ll never have to worry about what to take again, if you follow Vegan Picnics! This is a cranberry bliss bar, vegan and gluten free, and lovely for a picnic!

@bonnie_rabbits

Chocolate cake, whipped cream, pomegranates…what’s not to love about this cake?

@mosolyoga

Rice pudding cake sounds intriguing but delicious! Especially topped with fresh berries and nuts.

Day 5: Pastry

Vegan Ha Ha

This tabbouleh is made with millet, and is perfect for a warm summer day, with herbs and vegetables and preserved lemon for a nice tang!

Downright Vegan

Inspired by pastries seen in a bakery, these are similar to mille-feuille, but without icing on the top, and look mouth wateringly good!

Vegan Beckles

Pastry can be savoury too! These are both vegan and gluten free, and packed full of melty cheese, soft potatoes, and herbed onions. Delicious!

Day 6: Bread

@butfirstsalad

With a bread prompt, you have to make sandwiches, right? This is an almond butter sweet potato fluffernuter sandwich…ok, how cool does that sound?

@trimazingvlc

Oooh, bagels! And homemade at that. You can’t get much better than homemade bagels, can you?

@_hollyblue_

Holly made a beautiful looking bento box, featuring a gluten free vegan naan bread, using a recipe from the lovely Vegan Richa!

Day 7: Technical Challenge – Quiche

Vegans Need Sauce

Mmm, how creamy and tasty does this quiche look? A tofu base, with spinach, onion, and garlic – simple flavours but perfect for quiche!

@sbrightw3

Sarah made quiche with potatoes, onions, mushrooms & rosemary – and all those flavours sound perfect together.

@vegan.raptor

Vegan Raptor is doing a Star Wars themed MoFo…full of great puns like this “Ham Solo”! Every morning is a guessing game…can you guess what each meal is referring to?

Day 8: Afternoon Tea

Just Bloggs Vegan

Would you look at this spread! Three types of sandwich on the bottom layer, coronation chickpea vol-au-vents in the middle, and scones with homemade jam and creme fraiche. I love the amount of effort that went into this, and would definitely be happy having it at a nice cafe!

Go Vegga

Who wouldn’t want lemon drizzle cake served at afternoon tea? This was baked for a birthday – and I bet it was well recieved!

@oohsarracuda

Sarra has absolutely mastered making biscuits, and if she made these for Mary Berry? She’d be won over in an instant, I’m sure!

Day 9: Showstopper

Gonna Go Walk the Dogs

Four words. Vegan Angel Food Cake. Amazing! Using the magic of aquafaba – the liquid from cooking chickpeas – this light and fluffy cake was veganised, and looks so perfect!

@idunsyn

Angela says she’s “not very good at showstoppers” but I firmly disagree – this looks amazing! The recipe is from Chloe’s Vegan Desserts and looks like a must-make.

Amber Eats Veg

Do you want to hear the history behind this booze soaked Alabama Lane Cake? Head over to Amber’s blog, and also find out how to make it!

 

Thanks again to everyone who is taking part – tune in next week for our Week 2 Roundup!

January MiniMoFo Roundup

January MiniMoFo Roundup

The first month of 2019 is over! We asked you your advice on beating the blues for this MiniMoFo – and you definitely delivered.

@atinyhousevegan

Nina has been cooking so much good food this month – check out her instagram for more! This is a frugal meal too – after using half a can of coconut cream for cupcakes, the other half went into this delicious soup.

@veg_domesticgoddess

Kira took on a project and made vegan pho – several steps and hours in the kitchen, but perfect to keep yourself warm and enjoying yourself on these cold days!

@ambereatsveg

Start the day with a good breakfast, and you’re on track to a wonderful blues-busting day! This southwest cauliflower scramble is just one of Amber’s creations this month, and they all look delicious.

Living the Dream

Jen took the “blues” prompt literally and made a granola smoothie bowl using blue spirulina, which gives it the beautiful blue colour! Featuring fresh fruit and homemade granola – definitely looks lovely!

@vegfullife

Kirsty made stuffed carnival squash with veggies and rice, and a walnut dijon cream dressing – how good does that dressing sound?

Herbivore’s Heaven

Jenny isn’t feeling the blues herself this January, but kindly for those who are, she provided us with pictures of these gorgeous waffles from Puro in Prague. With baked apples, hazelnuts, maple syrup, and whipped cream – they’d definitely do the job.

@dimsimkitty

Keeping on the sweet theme, Susan had some cheering up with friends and milkshakes –  these are butterscotch, and strawberry flavours – yum! Perfect blues busting for the Brisbane summer.

@ms.spaetzle

Back to savoury, and a lovely green pasta meal – with peas and preserved winter garlic, yum!

@imogenmichel

One sure way to beat the blues is to go for deep fried, delicious food. Deep fried pizza, chips, battered sausages, cheesy garlic bread…need I say more?

@veganblueberry

Some great advice from Blueberries on beating the winter blues – keep warm and cosy and drink delicious chai!

@emflower.x

How about some baked goods to help you beat the blues? Millionaire’s Shortbread is rich and full of caramel and great for cheering you up!

 

Thank you to everyone who took part in MiniMoFo this month – Stay tuned for February’s, coming soon!
