Inspiration Week has come to an end, and it’s safe to say there have been some very inspirational dishes in the first eight days of VeganMoFo 2018! Let’s take a look at some of the highlights in our first weekly roundup post – make sure you’re following all our participants so you don’t miss a single delicious post! And keep using #veganmofo18 to help us find you!
Day 1: Introduce you!
Emma is one of our hard working VeganMoFo organisers, so you should probably get to know her! She’s posting on Instagram, as well as numerous delicious recipes on her blog, make sure you’re following along!
You might have followed Amber on Instagram during last year’s MoFo, but this year she’s back on her blog as well and we couldn’t be happier! Get to know her a little more in this post, and also learn how to make this swimming rama!
Let’s welcome VeganMoFo first timer Jena, who is participating with lots of amazing illustrations!
Day 2: Emoji Inspired
The simple heart emoji is a classic – and here it is in the form a chocolate cake topped with raspberries. *insert heart-eyes emoji here*
Don’t these pancakes look almost a little too perfect?! How come mine never look that good? Amazing job, Garrick!
The pumpkin emoji was a popular choice today, and here is Bonnie’s pumpkin-inspired dish. Pumpkin lasagna with mushrooms and caramelised onions sounds pretty good to me!
Day 3: Leader of a country, place, or group
Rosie the Riveter needs a protein packed meal more than anyone! I’m sure she’d be happy with this quinoa, tofu,and broccoli dish.
Of course, there are great leaders in our own homes and families too – Moon made this gazpacho and tofu-egg salad in honour of her mother-in-law, and we’d love to join them for a meal!
Of course, there’s no obligation to follow our daily prompts or weekly themes – Food for Dissertating is posting about packed lunches all month. Not only does this look like a delicious lunch, but I can confirm from personal research that the recipe for these chocolate hazelnut oat bites is to die for!
Day 4: Artist inspired
KZ shared this beautiful Pitaya bowl, which definitely looks like a work of art to me! Plus there are some philosophical musings on art and perception.
Top marks to Michelle for transforming a bunch of leftovers into a Rothko!
Look at these Mary Blair-inspired cookies that Clare made! There were even diagrams involved!
Day 5: Inspiring cookbooks
Oh, hello, bookshelf of my dreams! But which one is Kristen’s favourite?!
Check out this dish from a 1970s cookbook, originally called ‘Governor’s Lady Deviled Crab’ and now veganised for the modern times!
Sarra is posting on the theme of vegan travel, and shared some of the cookbooks she’s picked up on the road – including non-vegan ones, which she promptly veganises, as you can see from her famous bicsuits!
Day 6: The Anti-Vegan
How does Sandy deal with people who claim to hate tofu? She turns tofu into a pizza base! Check out the recipe for these tofu pizza bites!
Burgers featured pretty heavily on this day, and here’s just one example of an amazing burger that can win over any meat eater!
Meanwhile, Vegan Raptor continues to post Buffy-based puns alongside tasty vegan dishes as part of his Buffy Menu theme. I’m sure we can get Buffy to slay the anti-vegan brigade!
Day 7: Colour
If you follow Vegan Dollhouse on Instagram or her blog, you’ll expect nothing less than adorable food at all times. Just check out these purple steamed buns!
Have you ever been served a yellow lasagna before?! Learn how to do it on this post from Wister!
And why settle for one colour when you can eat the whole rainbow? Emily leads the way with this colourful bowl.
Day 8: Your own flops
Most of us have probably experienced a disaster which almost cost us a beloved dish or utensil. But you’ve got to have the courage to try again, as we can see from this beautiful looking focaccia!
Cindy has been thwarted in the past when making crispy fried tofu, but now she’s really shown it who’s boss! Find out her secrets, and get the recipe for her BBQ nut butter sauce as an added bonus!
All this week, Angie has been veganising some classic Pennsylvania Dutch recipes, and she finished up with this shoofly pie, which apparently tastes just like gingerbread! Yum!
Here’s to another amazing week of VeganMoFo 2018!
