Another week over – can you believe we’re already over halfway through VeganMoFo?! I hope you’re enjoying it as much as we are! Let’s look back at some of the highlights of the second week. For those of you following the weekly themes, this one was all about pop culture and there were some really fun takes on the daily prompts!
Day 10: Inspired by favourite show
Clare was inspired by Jane the Virgin to make the ultimate grilled cheese – do you agree with her take on triangles?!
Sarra takes inspiration from the greatest TV show of all time (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, duh) with Buffy Summers-time pizza and cookies good enough to make the gang forget the drug-laced dishes that evil Ted was cooking for them. Now I really want to rewatch that episode…and eat this pizza!
Day 11: Cook for your favourite character
Surely even Mr Darcy would find something nice to say about this shepherd’s pie? Let’s hope he isn’t prejudiced against vegan food!
Meanwhile, VeganMoFo regular Janyce continues with her Caribbean Cuisine theme – check out this Barbadian recipe for cou-cou with lime fish!
Day 12: Veganise a dish from a sci-fi/fantasy world
Any excuse to make fun of the Star Wars prequels! Cindy took inspiration from a terrible scene in Attack of the Clones for these fancy looking poached pears.
I still feel like dessert hummus probably comes from an alternate reality, but Long Island Vegan has almost convinced me that it’s worth trying…check out her Aldi haul review post, and learn more about the vegan scene on Long Island with her theme this month.
Day 13: Food song pun
Amber managed to stick to her theme (Southern dishes) and still incorporate a good song pun when she shared this frito pie recipe: Reach for the Pies by the Flaming Chips!
VeganMoFo superstar Jen is doing an ambitious 31 days of cake this year – living the dream, indeed! Today she made a fruit smoothie cake, and just look at the colour of that batter! You can find the full recipe on her blog.
And make sure to check out this new recipe from VeganMoFo organiser extraordinaire, Emma! Biscoff rocky road sounds like the ultimate treat!
Day 14: Cook something to bring a villain back from the dark side
Angie is posting all month on an Adventure Time theme, which sometimes ties in perfectly with the daily prompts. Here’s a chocolate pudding to placate the Duke of Nuts, a character who is always stealing other people’s desserts because he has a pudding deficiency. I wonder if I can get away with that too…
I’m not sure if maple walnut whisky fudge would turn us to or from the dark side…but either way, it sounds delicious! The full recipe is provided so you can see for yourself.
Day 15: Cartoon inspired
The Broccoloids are coming for us! Angela has some interesting philosophical thoughts on how compatible these villains are with a vegan mindset, but ultimately reaches the only possible conclusion: eat all the broccoli!
Sal is posting on three different topics per week as part of her VeganMoFo theme – veganising, what I ate, and recipe testing. Her ‘what I ate’ posts are full of envy-inducing snaps of the delicious feasts she found in San Diego recently. She’ll have you booking your flights in no time!
Day 16: Perfect snacks for event TV
Sarah assures us that this sweet and spicy pineapple fried rice is the perfect accompaniment to any season finale, and we believe her – it looks delicious!
There’s a reason that popcorn is a classic snack, and vegan parmesan, garlic salt and rosemary sound like the perfect topping. It looks like somebody agrees!
Can’t wait to see what you all come up with in Week 3!
