Vegan MoFo 2014: Cozy Saturday Round-Up

Vegan MoFo 2014: Cozy Saturday Round-Up

Hello, Vegan MoFo land! This is Cadry from Cadry’s Kitchen.

I’m so excited to do my first round-up with you on this blustery Saturday. This is the first weekend that really feels like fall. It’s the kind of day that warrants boots and a hoody, and it totally has me craving cozy food that makes me feel all warm inside.

Lentil a Roni from Isa Does It

First up – Lentil a Roni. Linda from The Lentil Institution (sounds very official!) made this creamy pasta dish from Isa Does It. Cashew cream is blended through the tomato-based pasta sauce at the end, giving a full-bodied mouth feel that sounds heavenly!

Vegan sorullitos de maiz

Over at The Judgmental Vegan, Rachel fried up a batch of the Puerto Rican appetizer, Sorullitos de Maiz, which she describes as deep-fried cornbread dipped in salsa roja. Yes, please.

Vegan tamale pie

Shaheen, a Welsh blogger at Allotment 2 Kitchen, made this mouthwatering family-sized tamale dish. This tamale pie is packed with beans, tomatoes, onions, and garlic and then topped with pretty polenta flowers.   It looks like a big crowd pleaser for family get togethers.

Chocolate Cream Vanilla Fluff

In the dessert realm, Liane at VGNGF made this swoon-worthy Chocolate Cream & Vanilla Fluff. With dark chocolate, cocoa powder, and smooth hazelnut butter as ingredients, I might have to find a bigger glass that would accommodate me swimming in it.

Apple Cider Donuts

Sarah at I’m Vegan, and No, I’m Not Starving embraced the fall-like weather with apple cider donuts. (Is there a better way to welcome autumn? Short answer: No.) Using pressed cider from a local orchard, she made these gluten-free donuts that sound just delightful.

Chocolate Fudge Mini Cakes

Finally, London blogger, Clem, over at The Vegan Cookie Fairy made these delectable Gluten-free Almond and Chocolate Fudge Mini Cakes. For Vegan MoFo she’s adapting recipes from her first baking book, Chocolat: Fondre de Plaisir by Camille and Nathalie Le Foll. This fallen cake is crackled along the top and gooey in the center, meaning it’s pretty much chocolate perfection.

How expensive are plane tickets to the UK? Note to self: check that STAT.

That’s it for Saturday! See you next week!

These sturdy burgers, built from barley, fresh carrots and celery, are perfect for the grill. They have a great meaty texture and hold up well while cooking. Take them to your fall work barbeque and finally enjoy a juicy burger with your co-workers.

Going Vegan Cookbook Giveaway


Happy Sunday! We have another exciting giveaway for you today! Joni Marie Newman is offering up her new book Going Vegan, co-authored with Gerrie Lynn Adams.

Going Vegan CoverThis is an excellent book for anyone interested in a vegan diet, or who is trying to incorporate more vegan recipes into their meal planning. Joni and Gerrie talk about choosing veganism from an animal rights perspective as well as environmental and health aspects. They also give ideas for meal planning, helpful to both new and old vegans.

gerriesveggieburgerIf you know Joni’s other books, then you know there will be plenty of amazing recipes. Grilled citrus cauliflower steaks? Super stacked veggie burgers? Crispy toaster waffles?

I’m a huge fan of Joni’s Best Veggie Burgers on the Planet, so I recommend starting with veggie burgers (just look at that photo!), but you also can’t go wrong with amaretto cupcakes or sweet and smoky tempeh strips.
