Vegan MoFo 2017 Week Three Roundup

Vegan MoFo 2017 Week Three Roundup

Hello, hello hello! Week three of Vegan MoFo was all about ingredient challenges! Here’s a look back at some of the posts that caught my eye this week.

October 16th – Survival food

Tracy’s living cookbook

Not gonna lie, when I saw the Zombie Apocalypse Cheesy Potato Enchilada Casserole Tracy made, I did a little squee. It looks absolutely delicious and is made from mostly pantry staples and freezer food. Bring on the impending doom, I’m going to Tracy’s for dinner.

October 17th – Let’s get boozy!
Go vegga

Kelly made this warming Spiked Maple Molasses drink with aquafaba whipped cream! I don’t know about you but this looks like the perfect Autumnal evening drink. Mmmmm, maple.


Ichiban vegan

Jess made a Boozy Apple Pie Sundae and it looks incredible. If you fancy making this homemade bourbon vanilla ice cream with hard cider wet walnuts, have a mooch on Jess’s blog for the recipe.

 

October 18th – Chocolate

One raw bite

Alexa and Jennifer over at One raw bite made a chocolate sauerkraut cake! I’m all for including more sauerkraut in my diet and if that can be done by eating cake, everyone’s a winner. Check out the origins of the cake and the recipe on their blog.

Kittens gone lentil

Susan has researched into truly fair trade chocolate and has been reviewing some beautiful looking vegan bars featured on the Food Empowerment Project’s chocolate list. Take a look at her blog post and read more about the Food Empowerment Project here.

 

October 19th – Five ingredients or fewer

Two Happy Rabbits

What a gorgeous dish Graeme and Cally made for today’s challenge, they even made their own pasta from scratch. Check out their recipe for Homemade Orecchiette with Broccoli Rabe and Chili, and try not to drool.

Vegan tho

Natalie made a vegan version of a childhood favourite dinner, Corned Beans Hash. This version using refried beans instead of corned beef looks so much nicer than the original, I’m adding this to my list of MoFo recipes to make on a cold, rainy day.

 

October 20th – Deconstructed dish
@ladyfunk25
Angie took apart the ingredients for a banh mi and made a cracking salad. Just look at the grill marks on that tofu! Nom!

@vegansneedsauce

Emily made a gorgeous ‘unstuffed’ stuffed pepper: a beet ball atop a grilled slice of bell pepper with fresh herb gravy and a smear of roasted cauliflower puree. How delicious does that sound? And it looks impressive, too!

October 21st – Potato

Gonna go walk the dogs

Janet lives in California so has access to great produce all year round, as demonstrated in her Four Seasons Buddha Bowl, featuring slow roasted potatoes. Look at those beautiful colours! How dreamy does her Grilled Peach Tahini Sauce sound?

http://gonnagowalkthedogs.typepad.com/.a/6a0133f45fbb46970b01b8d2b6b8ca970c-800wi

@Elephantasticvegan

Bianca’s easy vegan gnocchi ticks all the boxes, a simple yet elegant dish that looks so delicious. A great use of the humble potato.

@raisinsecte

This potato sauerkraut soup with sausage crumbles is right up my street! Who else fancies a bowl of this beautiful soup?

 

October 22nd – Unconventional grains

@vegfullife
Kristy made a wheat berry salad with some lovely summery flavours, a nice change from a pasta salad and great to make in advance for meal prep.

Fake meat and true love

I’ll admit that I’d never heard of the grain Sarra and Mike used in their Italian wedding soup; triticale. They found this relatively unheard of grain at a farmer’s market, and enjoyed their soup with some rad looking ham & cheese buttermilk biscuits. What a perfect dinner! Save some for me next time, ok?

That’s all from me for this week, looking forward to seeing everyone’s posts for the final week of Vegan MoFo 2017!

VeganMoFo 2017 Week Two RoundUp!

VeganMoFo 2017 Week Two RoundUp!

This week, our theme was “Behind the Scenes” which has been brilliant because really, we’re all nosy at heart, and we’ve loved seeing the background behind all your food!

October 9th – Go Go Gadget! 

@moth.spit

We’re starting with Ene, who made mustard with a hand blender! Now isn’t that ingenious? Creating food from scratch is very satisfying, and I bet this tastes really good.

One Raw Bite

Jennifer shared her very pretty looking cocktail shaker (but made sure to reassure us that it isn’t actually her most used gadget!). Go and check out her blog, where she has a recipe for a cherry cocktail that sounds oh so good.

@crumbs.and.caramel

Crumbs and Caramel have some amazing looking desserts on their instagram – have you had a chance to check them out yet? This banoffee pie is from Isa & Terry’s Vegan Pie in the Sky cookbook, so you could even make it yourself if you wanted! (Or make it for me…please?)

October 10th – Secret Ingredient

Just Bloggs

Here we have a history of one of the most innovative recent vegan discoveries – aquafaba! Now, this is one that really gets people talking (especially non-vegans). It’s certainly pretty magical though – who would have imagined that vegan meringues could be this easy?

@ladyfunk25

Angie’s secret ingredient is avocado…in a smoothie! It sounds strange when you first hear it, but actually makes a lot of sense. I mean, avocados are lovely and creamy, right? Apparently it gives the bowl a lovely rice pudding texture – this is one to try.

KZ Cakes

KZ’s tomato soup with grilled cheese looks so lovely and warming and comforting! It sounds like just the meal you want to cheer you up on a cold, grey day.

October 11th – Kitchen Tour

Two Happy Rabbits

Just look at this outdoor kitchen! If you’re ever considering travelling and taking a portable kitchen, definitely read this blog post for advice. And whilst you’re there, check out all their other meals and marvel at how they were created outdoors!

Little Vegan Eats

Okay, so this kitchen looks pretty much straight out of a magazine. Hands up who is jealous? Maybe it’s the most beautiful kitchen I have ever seen.

@pennyrakau

Penny posted a shelfie…get it…shelfie…selfie….ha ha! with her cookbooks. How many do you recognise? How many do you own?

 

October 12th – Grocery Store Tips and Tricks

Gonna Go Walk the Dogs

Here we have some great advice – find a farmers market with local produce! If you’re lucky, you’ll have a farmers market nearby with produce as beautiful as this. Just have a look at those amazing carrots!

@steffers_the_gnome

Steph offers advice for anyone travelling – if you fly with Alaska, you can get a vegan picnic pack on the plane! That’s great, for an industry that’s still pretty behind with vegan options. I’d eat this, for sure.

@the_bearded_vegan

On his own theme, The Bearded Vegan cooked up loaded nachos with quinoa, kamut, black beans, Daiya cheeze sauce, and loads more. My mouth is watering just looking at this photo!

October 13th – Sell Yourself

@rosamiex

Rosie would sell pizza, such as this pictured vegan meat feast pizza – featuring homemade soy chicken, chorizo sausage, and lots of cheese! Who says vegans miss out? I’m missing out on this pizza right now though.

@mosolyoga

I think this idea sounds really, really delicious. Sweet vegan snack balls in a recycled paper box, with flavours suitable for adults and children. And they’re so pretty too!

@filthyrichvegan

Filthy Rich already “sell themselves”, ah, so to speak, and took the opportunity to share their vegan muffins! Don’t you think these flavours look really tasty?

October 14th – Repurposing Food

Seitan Beats Your Meat

Now, how comforting does this recipe sound? Tofu noodle soup in homemade bread bowls. The bowls are best a few days old so they hold up to the soup better, which means they’re great for any bread you have leftover!

VeganHaHa

Continuing on the bread theme, we have a classic dessert here – bread and butter pudding! If you’ve never had it before, you should definitely try it! Sure, it sounds a little strange in principle, but it’s so good in reality.

Herbivore’s Heaven

Jenny has been spending VeganMoFo talking about being vegan in Italy (don’t you wish you had a months worth of Italian food to write about?!) and today has some really special gelato on her blog! Actually, keep checking out her posts because there has been a lot of special gelato so far this month.

October 15th – Spicy!

Ichiban Vegan

Would you look at the colours on this? That’s what you get when you combine sweet potatoes with some lovely spices like turmeric, smoked paprika, and more. Check out Jess’ blog for the recipe, and a funny cat too!

Vegansk For Alle

It might not be spicy, but it sure is good. This mississippi mud pie has an oreo biscuit base and a lovely creamy topping (just look at it!).

@masalavegan

With an instagram name of “Masala Vegan”, you’d be expecting lots from their spices, after all, how else would you make masala? And you’re not going to be disappointed. A proper spice tray, full of whole spices – it’s beautiful isn’t it?

 

First Week Round Up 2017

First Week Round Up 2017

VeganMoFo’ers, thank you for everything you do!  It’s been an amazing first week of VeganMoFo 2017, and we’ve been dazzled by all your creative offerings and culinary delights.  Choosing a few highlights for each day is a tough old job, but here are some that have stood out this week.

The week one theme was Changing Vegan Perceptions, and I think you will have easily convinced the rest of the world that a vegan diet is in no way a boring one!

1st: Re-inventing the veggie option

Fake Meat & True Love

Mike and Sarra livened up the dull old hummus and veg offering by making hummus-crusted tofu with an exciting range of veg (blueberry sweet peppers, anyone?) and sticking it all in a taco. Talk about an improvement!  They’ve posted a taco dish every day this week, so have a look at their other fillings too on their blog or Instagram.

@ambereatsveg

How do you make avo toast fresh and exciting? Strawberries, pomegranate balsamic and cocoa powder! We like Amber’s thinking!  All of her dishes this week have been beautiful and are worth checking out.

Living the Dream

Of course, you don’t have to be following the weekly theme or daily prompts to be featured in our round ups!  MoFo regular Jen is posting about hurricane recovery in the Florida Keys, and we were so happy to see her again!  Week 1 has been full of honest and hopeful videos from her B&B, along with inspiring tales of human kindness and generosity.

 

2nd: Junk food forever!

Coastal Vegan

Feast your eyes on this! Clare has a mouthwatering review of this vegan junk food haven in South Devon that will have us all descending there for a holiday! Clare has also shared some of her own flavoursome recipes this week if you’re in the mood for some cooking.

@vegfullife

Kirsty also went out for junk food:  where would you even start with this sample platter from Portland’s vegan BBQ joint Homegrown Smoker?!

Two Happy Rabbits

If you’re in need of a sugar fix, check out the recipe for this spectacular concoction: funnel cake topped with pumpkin pie ice cream, pecan pralines and caramel sauce.  Truly a work of art!  There’s a recipe every day on their blog, so do check it out for meal inspiration.

 

3rd:  But where do you get your protein?

Vegans Need Sauce

Emily (who happens to be VeganMoFo’s resident IT expert) went to the trouble of googling high-protein foods and then whipped them up into a veritable feast: baked tofu with a sun-dried tomato and pepita pesto, garlicky sauteed spinach, and a quinoa-lentil pilaf. Yum!

@tofumom

We have a lot of respect for Tofumom’s no-nonsense protein response:  plants, duh!  Check out this colourful array of protein-packed veg – just one of her vibrant pics from week one!

@elephantasticvegan

And you can’t talk about protein without mentioning the humble chickpea!  Bianca shared these collard green falafels, and you can find the recipe right here.

 

4th:  Catering

Accidentally Meatless

There were no catering disasters at this wedding – Michelle took a look back at her wedding, a week long celebration of vegan food (oh, and true love) culminating in this tower of five different kinds of cupcakes. Happy anniversary!

Walks, Talks & Eats

Emma’s worst catered meal was so unbelievably bad, you really do have to read it yourself to believe it. Let’s just say that this lasagne (made using actual lasagne pasta sheets!) was a huge improvement! She’s shared her recipe so you can make it yourself at home.  Look at her other daily recipe posts while you’re over there!

@suburbanvegan

Kristen pointed out that we vegans quite often miss out on little nibbles like hors d’oeuvres, so she made a whole meal consisting of delicate little appetisers!  They all looked amazing, but these fried chick’n tofu and waffles a really something else.  She’s posted some really beautiful dishes throughout the week.

 

5th:  Conversion meal

@dauliflower

Everyone tells Danielle that she makes the best grilled cheese sandwiches in the world, vegan or otherwise. Judging by this picture, I’m inclined to believe them!

@naschaer

First of all, yes, this would win anyone over.  Second, did everyone else know that banana blossom is a good fish alternative?!  You can find more details over on Natalie’s Instagram post.  She’s been serving up delicious and hearty feasts all week, so don’t head over there on an empty stomach!

@vegan.raptor

Checking in on another personal theme, if you ever watched The Wire this one’s for you! Every morning vegan.raptor posts a photo of a vegan dish inspired by the name of a character with a little clue as to who it is.  In the evening all is revealed!  This isn’t just bacon, it’s Wee-bey-con!  Play along and see if you can guess any of them!

 

6th:  Vegan Cheese is “real” cheese!

Banana Curl, Vegan Girl

Laura’s theme is ‘magical unicorn rainbow party’, and this mac’n’cheese seems to fit perfectly! Natural colourings abound, including something called butterfly pea tea powder.  You can find the recipe on her blog and check out her other great and thought-provoking posts this week.

@mrs.spaetzle

Check out this elegant looking homemade tofu chevre from Mrs S!  This would look at home on any cheese board.

@raqinthekitch

First time MoFo’er Raquella shared this tempting mac and cheese.  This was a popular dish for this prompt, but hers was the only one we spotted that was made with split peas!

 

7th:  Original vegan

@ladyfunk25

Angie made the smart choice of going for Indian cuisine today with red lentil soup and curried okra.  Let those vegetables and lentils shine!

My Apologies for the Novel

Julie turned to our vegan goddess Isa for this original vegan dish: the goddess noodles from Isa Does It.  In every blog post Julie included a drawing of her dish for Inktober, so make sure you stop by to admire her artistic skills!

@whoneedssalad

Look at this magnificent plate of food from Tania (or, to give credit where it’s due, her husband)!  As she points out, respecting your vegetables is all it takes to create a wonderful dish.  This seared cauliflower is served with steamed millet and braised thyme-scented white beans, finished with a lemon-tahini cauliflower puree.

 

8th:   You do make friends with salad

Kittens Gone Lentil

MoFor regular Susan treated us to a fabulous review of Terry Hope Romero’s Salad Samurai. Salads like this avocado tofu breakfast one are will win you friends any day of the week!

@andivert

Andrea recognises the importance of adding well-seasoned tofu to any salad. Doesn’t it just elevate every dish?

@veganistamama

Occasionally we might be persuaded to skip the tofu and instead get these black pepper candied maple bacon pecans!  Don’t they sound amazing?!  Oh, and they’re served with baby spinach, homegrown black krim tomatoes, and smoky pumpkin vinaigrette.

 

So that’s it for week one!  Week two starts today and we’re curious about what’s going on in your kitchen:  it’s Behind the Scenes week!  We’ll have another round up for you next Monday, but keep an eye on the blog for a daily cookbook giveaway Monday-Friday this week. And keep serving up that delicious food!

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!

ru-18

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.
