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.

 

Round Up: Lazy Sunday Style

Round Up: Lazy Sunday Style

Hey everyone, it’s John again. Today’s round up is courtesy of RandoMoFo, the easiest way to view VeganMoFo posts! I’m pretty lazy, so RandoMoFo is pretty much a gift from god. This Sunday morning I surfed and looked for the most interesting and appealing Vegan food offerings. I found everything from soups, burgers and dessert. You will notice a couple MoFo¬†favorites¬†and a couple you may have never heard of, so let’s begin!

eeks!

Fork and Beans whipped up some cool looking Frankenstein Soup which is sure to scare the crap out of your 85 year old Grandma.

mmm!

The Good Karma Kitchen brought the Smoky Paprika Cashew Cheese for these Southwest Black Bean Burgers.

slurp!

VegFusion touches my heart with this Lazy Minestrone.

delish!

mama et de bébé hawk makes the perfect Halloween offering, Baked Pumpkin Custard.

din din is served!

x means no onions brings comfort level to a whole new level with Wagon Wheel Sloppy Joes.

drool!

And last but certainly not least, TahiniToo visits El Nutri Taco in PDX and make my tummy rumble in the process.

This has been too much for a Sunday morning, I need to go eat!!! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Dine-Out Friday Round-Up

Dine-Out Friday Round-Up

Happy Friday, MoFo-land! Jess here, and my travelin’ bug is itching, mere days away from heading across the US and spending the rest of the month in New York. In the theme of vegan sightseeing, aka seeking out delicious, cruelty-free cuisine, I wanted to visit some blogs today who are dining out and showing off what’s available in their own towns, and beyond.

Alien’s Day Out snags the LAST VEGAN PAIN AU CHOCOLATE at the Veggie Holic Bakery in Hongdae, and it is awe-inspiring:

Michele shares a glorious grilled cheese from Portland’s Cheese Cart on Vegtastic Voyage:

More Portland! Alice B of Silver Threads tries Sizzle Pie, for some New Maps out of Hell.

Not that I’m trying to rub it in, but I happened¬†share some Rabbit salad & breadsticks at the other Sizzle location earlier today, myself.

Next up, the Gloria Gaynor biscuits from Biscuits & Groovy on Lone Star Plate.

I don’t know what to say besides I want to eat that plate. It will happen.

Moving on!¬†Pumpkin chocolate sundae at Lula’s on A SoyBean’s blog (and more ice cream, treats from Cake Thieves and Sweet & Sara Marshmallows that I’m so stoked to get my hands on next week!!!)

More sweets, please:¬†¬†Pecan Crumb Cake with Gingerbread Icing from the Deerly Beloved Bakery¬†blog, who’ll be at two local street fairs this weekend, for those of ya in the Norwich (UK) vicinity!

You should go and report back, because I’m jealous.

Not exactly on my round-up topic, but come on, these vegan (and gluten-free!) corn dog mummies from Fork and Beans are so dang awesome:

Lastly, a very Hungry Caterpillar fruit snack from Fried Dandelions, because I continue to be a sucker for cutesy edible art:

See you next time!

Have you heard of¬†Vegusto? Do you live in the UK & Ireland? If so today’s your lucky day becuase we have an epic giveaway for you! If not you should check ’em out anyway, Vegusto make some seriously awesome vegan cheeses. Isa included them in¬†The Post Punk Kitchen 100¬†at the beginning of this year and Quarry Girl described their cheeses as “The most life-altering/game-changing vegan cheese to date”.

I’m lucky enough to live around the corner from a store that stocks these amazing nut based cheeses & I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve almost eaten my way through the entire range. Vegusto don’t just make cheeses though, oh no, they also make a fantastic range of mock meat products including sausages, burgers, roasts and slicing sausage.

Today Vegusto are offering you the chance to win a ¬£30 mixed pack of their cruelty free meats and cheeses. This’ll look a little like the above picture of their Bronze Starter Kit.

Wednesday Round-Up

Wednesday Round-Up

Hey Vegan MoFo-ers! Welcome to the first ever round up from the Brighton branch of MoFo HQ. I hope you’re as excited to be reading this as I am to be writing it! If you know me online or in that thing they call “real life” it will come as no surprise to you that I’ve been fixated on desserts recently & today is no exception. I’m in love with everything sweet! Cookies are always a favourite and I wish that I had one of Amey’s DiSaronno Cookies in my hand right now. These beauties were made by Mihl over at seitan is my motor, I love the story behind them too but you’ll have to head over to Mihl’s blog to read it!

The second cookie I would pop into my mouth Cookie Monster style are these PB&J Thumbprints from Joanna Vaught. As a massive lover of all things Christmas (Yeah, I said it!) I’m loving Joanna’s 30 Days of Christmas Cookies & Treats theme this year.

As a self confessed sugar addict I’d never say no to a muffin, especially not one as peachy as this Peach Punch delight (d’ya see what I did there?!) from fellow Vegan MoFo volunteer Erin at Meet the Wiko’s.

Another beauty that I would happily gobble up at breakfast time is this Molasses Raisin Bread from The Vegan Cookbook Aficionado. Yum! You Canadian’s have really got it going on in the bread department!

If you’re looking for a more serious dessert then check out this Pumpkin Pie from Mipa at Alien’s Day Out. As a Brit I’m still not sure how I feel about pumpkin in dessert but this looks truly spectacular.

If you’d like to pair your chocoholic tendencies with your sweet tooth then this is the dessert for you. This tofu based Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse from an unrefined vegan is definitely something I’ll be bookmarking to make in the not too distant future!

If you’re looking to get really crazy with your dessert then I think this Ginger Maple Miso Ice Cream from Spabettie would be right up your street. I’m a huge lover of the combo of sweet & salty and this intriguing flavour would be my first choice at the ice cream parlour.

Last but by no means least we have a treat for your furry companions. These Peanut Butter Dog Treats from Kelly Peloza’s book The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur were made by Easy Vegan for her adorable friend Ralphie’s birthday, Happy Birthday Ralphie!
