March MiniMoFo Roundup

March MiniMoFo Roundup

March has come to an end and it’s time to round up this month’s wonderful recipes! We asked you to create stuffed and filled foods which has been interpreted in some lovely ways by our MoFo’ers.

My Apologies for the Novel

march1

Julie made vegan stuffed pasta shells! Using different types of vegan cheese and sauces (including a chipotle vegenaise!) these sound and look like great comfort food.

@onewindowsarah

march2

The first of this month’s sweet potato recipes comes from Sarah, who made a simple but tasty looking lunch, stuffing potatoes with arugula, olives, tahini, lemon, and hot sauce. Mmm!

Vegan Yack Attack

march3

Jackie from Vegan Yack Attack also used sweet potatoes this month! She made burrito-stuffed sweet potatoes, filled with beans and rice, salsa, and guacamole. What a great idea!

Herbivore’s Heaven

march4

Jenny wrote about her visit to a pasta restaurant! That’s right, a restaurant dedicated to pasta – and it has vegan options. She had a mushroom ravioli for a main, followed by chocolate ravioli. Yes, chocolate ravioli!

Walks, Talks & Eats

march5

Emma did some baking for this month’s prompt and made Bourbon Biscuit Brownies. Brownies stuffed with filled chocolatey biscuits – chocolate galore!

@thehale_vegan

march6

The Hale Vegan made stuffed bell peppers – filled with red quinoa, beans, taco seasoning, and topped with salsa, avocado, vegan cheese and cilantro. Some great flavours here!

@veganinbrighton

march7

Jojo made this amazing mac-and-cheese toastie! What could make vegan mac and cheese better, but putting it in a sandwich? And toasting it? Heavenly!

@diannewenz

march8

Dianne shared her recipe for lentil stuffed eggplant. Don’t they look so cute and tasty?

@piesforpdx

march9

Vegan bakers Pies for PDX made cheezy broccoli potato hand pies to sell at a charity bake sale – I bet they went down a treat!

Living the Dream

Pieorgi

Jen never misses a MiniMoFo prompt, and this month she delivered with these cheezy bacon pierogi and some sweet little hand pies.  You can check out the recipes on her blog.

 

Thank you to everyone who participated in this month’s challenge – and keep an eye out for April’s prompt, coming soon!

First Week Round Up of 2016

First Week Round Up of 2016

Week one of VeganMoFo 2016 is over! Hasn’t that gone quickly? We’ve seen some wonderful food this week and the rest of the month promises to be just as great.

The first weekly theme, for those who are following along, was Treat yourself (and others) and it’s certainly been a treat reading everyone’s posts this week. Below is a selection of our favourite posts from this first week of VeganMoFo 2016.  Make sure you’re following us on social media to see the posts we share and promote on a daily basis too.

Remember you can check out the weekly themes or daily prompts here – although you’re welcome to follow your own theme too! This week’s theme is International Week and we’re fascinated to see all the food from around the world. We’ll be back with a round up at thesame time next week!

Day 1:  What’s your favourite food?

@tofuhead_

Finnish contributor Heini shared this cabbage casserole, which is just perfect for the cold weather some of us are experiencing now.  If you’ve never tried Finnish cuisine, please note that it’s traditionally served with lingonberry jam.

ru-1

 

Vegan Nom Noms

There were a lot of nachos to drool over at Vegan Nom Noms.  Have you heard of magical potato carrot cheese?  If not, get yourself over there, stat!  Just look how good these are.

ru-1-2

 

The Offbeat Herbivore

Unsurprisingly, mac and cheese is a big hit in the vegan community and popped up quite a bit on day one.  Shout out to OBH who gave it a fun autumnal twist with her cute pasta shapes.

ru-3

 

Day 2:  What’s your go-go ‘impress me’ meal?

KZ Cakes

KZ does not mess around when it comes to feeding her nearest and dearest.  When you see the Ethiopian feasts, empanadas and red wine seitan dishes she produces, you’ll be desperately hoping to get an invite!  Gazing lovingly at this cake will have to suffice though…

ru-4

 

Allotment2Kitchen

Shaheen over at A2K likes to get back to her roots with a sensational Welsh menu when she’s out to impress.  She’s got laverbread, puddings, pies, and even a big tower of Welshcakes all ready to wow her dinner guests – not to mention some ferocious Welsh dragons!

ru-5

 

Vegans Need Sauce

Homemade gnocchi is always going to impress us.  Over at VNS, this is just a regular weeknight meal – that’s perhaps the most impressive thing of all!

ru-6

 

Day 3:  What’s your easy cook meal?

Dalia Kinsey

On her youtube channel, Dalia treated to this quick, easy and healthy lemongrass basil tofu stir-fry.  Stir fries were very popular on this day, unsurprisingly!

 

Rock My Vegan Socks

We can always count on Kimmy for something healthy and delicious, and here is a quick and easy lentil bruschetta…but using baked sweet potatoes instead of toasty bread!  What a great twist!

ru-7

 

The Divine Ms. K

An easy breakfast is essential for those of us who struggle to get going in the morning.  Here’s a tasty bowl of granola from The Divine Ms. K.  Why not try her seasonal tip and use some pumpkin puree instead of peanut butter in your next batch?

ru-8

 

Day 4:  Where do you eat when you want someone else to cook for you?

@betsykatemullins

Every vegan probably suffers from falafel fatigue at some point, but this is enough to restore anyone’s faith in that vegan staple!  Betsy shows us all how it’s done by getting this Middle Eastern feast delivered and enjoying it at home in her PJs.

ru-12

 

Living The Dream

Jen at LTD is one of our busiest MoFo participants:  she’s participating on youtube, Facebook and on her blog, all while running a B&B!  She enjoys the raw vegan special at Food For Thought.  Anyone for lasagna roll-ups?

 

Vegan Knyquol

North American MoFo’ers may be familiar with the ‘How to order Vegan’ advice from Taco Bell, but if not, Vegan Knyquol has you covered.  This looks quick, convenient and tasty!

ru-10

 

Day 5:  Tell us what you’re midnight-snacking on!

@inradtaste

Over on Instagram, Loz introduced us to this brilliant idea:  a spoonful of peanut butter and a healthy (?) dose of Choc Shot.  As she says, you don’t need to limit this to midnight snacking!

ru-11

 

Flicking the Vs

Joey at FtVs is balancing her MoFo duties with student life, so her recipes this month all have a student-friendly, quick and easy theme.  That doesn’t make them any less impressive though, as demonstrated by this sandwich to fuel her late night cramming sessions.

ru-13

 

@garrickstegner

Here’s an indulgent late night snack from Garrick on Instagram.  We truly live in a magical time with so many vegan ice cream options.  Anyone for cherry choc chip?

ru-14

 

Day 6:  Comfort food

Blueberry Blossoms

Blueberry Blossoms knows that convenience is key, so she’s relying on some good supermarket finds to feed her:  a tin of soup, a packet of veggie fingers and a toastie filled with smoky cheese.  Quick, easy and comforting!

ru-16

 

Green Gourmet Giraffe

Carbs are always comforting.  Johanna from GGG showcases her homemade sourdough fruit bread with poppy seeds.  Imagine a slice of this slathered with chocolate and macadamia spread!

ru-17

 

@oohsarracuda

Sarra found a way to elevate the good old comforting sandwich with these sausage, biscuit and gravy sandwiches.  Good Texan style comfort food!

Vegan MoFo 2014: Wondrous Wednesday Round-Up

Vegan MoFo 2014: Wondrous Wednesday Round-Up

Hello, MoFo Land! It’s Cadry here from Cadry’s Kitchen.

I have been popping all over the blogosphere, and I can’t believe the mouthwatering stuff on offer. Here are just a few things that caught my eye:

Upton's Seitan Bacon Breakfast SandwichIf you started your day with a boring slice of toast or a banana, you may not want to look… Jenna at Good Good Things got her morning off to a rockin’ start with this heavenly tomato and seitan bacon sandwich. So jealous.

Chia jamI’ve been eagerly following along at Veganopolous, where Faye is giving a play-by-play account on whether or not her kids will eat various meals, often to hilarious results. (They don’t mince words when it comes to their preferences.) On the menu today – Magical Chia Seed Jam from The Oh She Glows Cookbook. Will they eat it? You’ll have to go find out for yourself.

Pumpkin Pie SmoothieThe official beginning of fall is mere days away. Are you ready for the impending barrage of non-stop pumpkin mania? Well, here’s where you need to start – the pumpkin pie smoothie from Allyson Kramer.

Butternut Squash AlfredoHow pretty are these tripoline noodles? Even better, they are topped with a butternut squash alfredo sauce made extra creamy by way of cashews. Read all about it at Iheartcrapkitchen.

Black Bean Salsa BurgerJenn at Veggie Inspired Journey spilled the beans on how to make these Black Bean Salsa Burgers & Crispy Potato Rounds.  Yes, please.

Roasted Garlic and White Bean Soup with KaleFinally, if you feel like you’re doing dishes non-stop in the middle of MoFo madness, perhaps it’s time to dig in to dishes you can eat. Ashley at A. Cook In the Making has you covered with this Roasted Garlic and White Bean Soup with Kale.

Happy cooking, and I’ll see you next time!

Round ‘Em Up Panda Style

Round ‘Em Up Panda Style

Panda here to do up a quick and easy Monday night MoFo round up. Comfort food! We are in the middle of the Great Deluge and so I am looking at some soups and sweets for a chilly night at home.

Tahini Too has a sweet potato curry recipe up to cure what ails you.

Tami over at Vegan Appetite has a big bowl of chili. You say chili, I say yes.

There’s a big bowl of bulgur bean bake with a pile o’ lima beans from too cheap for pinenuts. Limas and bulgur are two of my underrated favourites.

Did you say chili? Because yes, Joyful Girl has a pile of Mom’s chili on her blog today. And you know there will be a cat photo if you click on over there.

Awesome Vegan Rad has a cup of oyster mushroom chowder to keep you going through the fall and winter.

And the amazing Tofu Mom has a pumpkin cheesecake recipe up today that will finish off your evening of pure comfort food bliss.

 

These Are a Few of My Favourite Themes

These Are a Few of My Favourite Themes

Pandacookie coming right at you for your Monday round ups! If you’ve read my blog then you know I like a good theme for each of my days. For today I present to you some of my favourite MoFo themes that have popped up thus far this month. Today’s posts have a strong emphasis on the bread but dang if I don’t love me a good pile o’ bread. Brown food tastes best y’all.

Sandwich from Georgia  (The I-40 Kitchen’s 50 states of MoFo does a state specific treat each day.)

and Toasties from Brighton.  (Vegan in Brighton’s Go-Go-Gadget Mondays.)

Waffles with toppings  (A waffle a day on Muffin Topped.)

and sweet snowball cookies. (A month of holiday cookies from Joanna Vaught.)

National holidays (Noochtastic does food themed holidays every day.)

toast posts for days. (Get your toast on with Phoenix Dreaming.)

These are a few of my favourite themes.

Tuesday Post-MoFo Round Up

Tuesday Post-MoFo Round Up

How is everyone enjoying post-MoFo life? Me, I’m a little wistful, so I’ve launched myself deep into the sanity threatening world of NaNoWriMo to distract myself from MoFo withdrawal. Which is not to say I haven’t whittled away plenty of valuable writing time surfing the vegan blogs. I bring you some of my favourites from this past week!

So I married a vegan catered for 75 lucky guests. On the menu? Winter soup shooters, golden lentil dumplings, hummus and muhammara, roasted sweet & spicy nuts and more.

More in parties, Bianca from Vegan Crunk attended a Heathen Housewarming! The food spread looks great, but I’d be all over this homemade Grave Hill Vineyard Swamp Cider.

Over at Bonzai Aphrodite, the adorable Thanksliving Coloring Zine by Nathalie VanBalen is reviewed. As the type of adult who stares at children colouring in restaurants with envy, I want a copy!

MoFo’s own Jess still owes me an exclusive email review of all of this amazing food at the new Native Foods in Portland.

Thanks to Hipster Food, I’m making mashed potatoes tonight.

Hannah Kaminsky does everything from taking incredible photos, creating the best sweet vegan recipes, and—a girl after my own heart—growing oyster mushrooms in her kitchen. With them she created these vegan Oyster Mushrooms Rockefeller (including a recipe!).

Also no slouch when it comes to food photography (understatement of the year), Celine from Have Cake Will Travel posted these Raspberry Sour Cream Mini Coffee Cakes. I’ll take three with a cup of afternoon tea.

Americans! You must make this pumpkin cheesecake with pecan crumble topping for Thanksgiving. Everyone else: Make it now. If you’re still waiting for your copy of Vegan Pie In The Sky to fall from the heavens into your hands, you’re in luck with this freebie recipe. (edit: I thought American Thanksgiving was this weekend. Sorry! So maybe you should all just make the pie tonight)

And since nothing can top that, have a happy Thanksgiving (US), a sombre Remembrance Day (Canada), and enjoy all those other holidays I’m too ignorant to know about.

The Wednesday Daily Good Time Fun Round Up

The Wednesday Daily Good Time Fun Round Up

It’s time again for me to seek out exciting food posts to share for my final Mofo round up. I wanted to check out some blogs I don’t have in my reader for today’s post. I am quite bad at keeping up with adding new blogs to my regular feed, which is one of the reasons I love Vegan Mofo so much. There is sure to be a tonne of new and exciting bloggers for me to discover along with people I know and love but for whatever reason aren’t in my regular rotation. Without further ado:

Bryanna Clark Grogan has a Vegan Diner review up with this plate of smoky soy curls with dill and garlic potato salad. I haven’t made these two recipes yet but clearly must so that I can have that plate of food. With beets, too? Oh yes. She’s also giving away a copy of Vegan Diner, so check out her blog to enter.

Biking and Baking has a recipe up for sunbutter chocolate pie. Covered with soyatoo and sprinkled with colorful decorations. It is the season of the pie and I am fully prepared to be engulfed with the madness.

Retro Vegan is frying up some homemade seitan bacon. Shown here on bread and butter with a mug of tea. The British know from breakfast.It is entirely possible that I would add some Marmite to this breakfast sandwich.

Garlic bread! Hello friend. Vegtastic Voyage serves it up with some parsley and nooch. You can’t go wrong with that. A delectable fall comfort food.

The Tofu Princess hits the autumnal spot with an Autumn Root Vegetable Dumpling Stew. I like all thing root vegetable and dumpling, so this is a whole bowl full of seasonal delight for me. You can win friends with dumplings.

 

Tuesday Round Up O’ Fun and Days Past

Tuesday Round Up O’ Fun and Days Past

I’m filling in for the lovely lazy smurf today for the Mofo Roundup. And I am rounding  up the food posts early because that’s how I roll. This morning is all about food and memory, with a secondary shout out to brown foods because we all know brown food tastes best.

JohnP has once again veganized one of my childhood favorites. Vegan ham rolls! A relative used to bring these to our twice yearly family reunions back in the day. My mother never made them so the only time I could pile drive these tasty, trashy, mini rolls stuffed with ham were at those reunions. The poppy seeds! They make it happen.

Chipped beef gravy on toast! Tofu mom brings it for her Mofo Month of Gravy Goodness. I have odd memories of my mother eating this from a frozen package and this post instantly brought that back. I love bread, gravy and all things smoky and bacony and I will be all over this sometime soon.

I was fortunate to travel to the UK a few years ago to visit Bazu and she had some damn good scones from Brighton for me. My life has been a never ending quest for a good scone in the US ever since. And no, I haven’t found anything that matches just yet. But with Lozzy-Bear’s scone and clotted cream recipe I may be able to have a right proper tea some fine fall afternoon.

Falafel is love. Back in a different day I lived in Brooklyn half a block away from a hole in the wall deli where the two guys made some of the best falafel in NYC. I would stop in occasionally on my way home from work and they always knew me and would often slip me an extra falafel ball to munch on while I waited. The Snarky Chickpea bakes it up with the recipe from Appetite for Reduction. I need to make these again because my current residence is sadly lacking in the mashed chickpea patties I love so well.

Consider me a fan of the food carts in Portland, OR. I am fortunate to have friends there to visit and I love the ability to buy a fried pie or bowl o’ poutine at 1 am. Emmakat featured her plate from the Bombay Chaat House food cart and it will be on my list of carts to visit the next time I am on the west coast. Also, is there a better word than chaat? It has an extra a for fun.

Vegan MoFo Friday Round-up – Super Smashing Great

Vegan MoFo Friday Round-up – Super Smashing Great

S’up MoFo’ers!

As soon as the evenings start drawing in my soup gland starts twitching.
Vegan MoFo never dissapoints on the soupy goings on and today has been no exception, the last week has been no exception!! So, tie a napkin under your chin, don your spoon and let’s dive right in on these souper offerings.

Potato-Kale Soup with Sizzling Chorizo
Roasted Cauliflower Soup
Split Pea Soup with Lemon and Spinnach - don't leave home without a lemon!
French Onion Soup
Southwestern Corn Chowder

So concludes my soup love post. I can’t believe we’re a week into MoFo 2011 already, doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun cooking, eating, reading, living la vida MoFo.

Tuesday Treats

Tuesday Treats

I’m cold! I’m tired! I’m cranky! (wah, wah) Today’s round-up is all about stuff I would like to treat myself to RIGHT NOW. Think of it as instant virtual cozy gratification for the mofo.

Carlota, of the Garlic Pepper blog, celebrates Kid’s Day in Brazil with a delicious smoothie and PAÇOCA for dessert. I’ve never had this peanut-y concoction, but it looks awesome and I feel like I need it.

The Geeky White Girl Grows Up blog features these delicious stuffed cabbage beauties. Cabbage = comfort food. The fact that it’s a grandma recipe just makes it even awesomer.

Everyone’s favorite Megatarian, Megan, made many MANY cakes this week, for the occasion of her Nana’s 90th b-day. (I think we have ourselves a theme here!) Here’s just one of them, but you’ll have to hop over to the blog to look at (drool over) all of them.

There is a blog called Vegan Dance if You Want To. The name alone was enough to get me hooked, but then sister had to go and make gnocchi with cilantro pesto??? OH NO SHE DIDN’T! (oh yes she did)

over on the p.h.d.elicious blog, we have a wonderful version of Veganomicon‘s Acorn Squash and Pear Soup with sautéed shiitakes. Why haven’t I made this soup yet? WHY?

Finally, DESSERT! (yes, I know I had the peanut candy appetizer and the cake, er… intermezzo, but this is dessert, I swear!) C’est La Vegan blog brings us this dreamy trifle. Look at it. Admire it. Make it your own. Eat it.

I don’t know about you, but Tuesday’s comfort-y treats certainly have made ME feel better.
