Goodbye March! I think it’s felt like quite a long month – but on the other hand, I’m shocked it’s April already! We’ve done a quarter of the year already, wow! This month we gave you the MiniMoFo theme of green, partly inspired by St Patrick’s Day in the middle of the month, and partly because, we’re vegans, we should do green well, right? And we did do green well – here are some of the mouthwatering dishes you’ve shared this month:
One Sonic Bite
Have you seen any of Jennifer’s cocktails throughout VeganMoFo challenges? If not, go and check them out – she always comes up with a great vegan cocktail! And this one is no different – have you ever thought to try a grasshopper with matcha? No? Why not give it a go!
Continuing on the drinks theme, Susan made this Cherry Pie Green Smoothie from a recipe from Greenilicious, a cookbook written by yet another VeganMoFo-er! How cool is that? I’m intrigued by the sound of a cherry pie smoothie. She also wrote a review of the book, if you’d like to check it out!
Living the Dream
Jen made a green grilled sandwich and did some green crafts (check out her blog for the crafts). This sandwich has organic greens, avocado, homemade pesto, pico de gallo, and vegan cheese in it. Yum!
Sarra made a mouthwatering St Patrick’s Day feast – steak & stout stew, colcannon, and herbed soda bread – I could just do with a lovely warming bowl of this!
More colcannon, just this time deconstructed style from Janet at Vegan Feast Catering! I gotta say, they both look lovely.
My Apologies for the Novel
Julie made loads of recipes for this month’s MiniMoFo – find the links on her blog – all including spinach! Definitely a healthy month for her! This is a creamy raw spinach pasta sauce she made.
Someone else who went all out for MiniMoFo this month is Amber, who had me extremely indecisive about which post of hers to feature! I went with this very green bowl in the end because – it’s just amazingly green! Check out her instagram for more posts.
Who can say no to pasta? One of the basic food groups! But it’s even better when made into a delicious meal like this green pasta – mmm!
Yet more colcannon…why not? It’s tasty! This one tops a shepherds pie, which is a pretty ingenious way of using it. Perfect for those cold days.
Lasagne is always great, but make it spinach lasagne and turn it green and it is even more exciting! I just love how vibrant the green is in this lasagne.
And what could celebrate greenery more than heaps of fresh green vegetables? Look how beautiful these are – and think of all the delightful meals you could cook with them!
Thank you to everyone who participated in this month’s MiniMoFo – stay tuned to find out April’s!
