Vegan MoFo: Zombie Apocalypse Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix

     So, I don't always think about zombies taking over the world... But, when I do, I think about what I would eat (like, as a human still. otherwise, brains? faces?). Anyway. As a vegan, you're pretty limited out in the wild.  Unless you're on a tropical island that has coconut and banana trees, you're stuck foraging in the… Continue reading Vegan MoFo: Zombie Apocalypse Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix

Vegan MoFo: Spiced Sweet Potato and Greens

     Today's prompt is everything that I love about this time of year: SPICES! Not that spice...      I love warm spices.  They always seem to find their way into my recipes in some form or another.  I use cinnamon in almost everything.  As I developed a taste for other spices, I discovered… Continue reading Vegan MoFo: Spiced Sweet Potato and Greens

Vegan MoFo: Bulldog BBQ Tofu Salad

     I think as vegans, we can all relate to Lisa Simpson on one level or another.  Whether you're at work, with friends or family, or at a wedding (ugh), you can bet that you will be in the dietary minority (unless you're only around fellow vegans all the time, which, congrats).  I get… Continue reading Vegan MoFo: Bulldog BBQ Tofu Salad

Vegan MoFo: Chocolate Protein Nice Cream & Double Chocolate Oatmeal Protein Squares

Do you even protein, bro?      So today's prompt is asking how I get my protein.  I would imagine my question to this ever present question from non-vegans would be to show them a bit of a double whamey: a protein-packed breakfast. It's very difficult to come by vegan breakfast foods that are prepared… Continue reading Vegan MoFo: Chocolate Protein Nice Cream & Double Chocolate Oatmeal Protein Squares

Vegan MoFo: Sprouted Spiced Black Bean Nachos

     I know, I know...today is supposed to be "junk food forever" themed.  Nachos are a classic party food that can be as junky as you want.  Having nachos drowned in dairy cheese, sour cream and other fattening ingredients is junk, for sure.  I decided to take today's prompt and "de-junk" nachos so that… Continue reading Vegan MoFo: Sprouted Spiced Black Bean Nachos

Vegan MoFo Day 1: Herbed Mushroom & Tempeh Veggie Burger

Happy Vegan MoFo, everyone!  I'm proud to say that I'm participating again this year.  I hope to contribute some solid recipes while following the prompts (somewhat, due to scheduling and general interest).  I couldn't, however, ignore the first day!  I love this idea: re-inventing a standard vegetarian option.  All too often, as many vegans know,… Continue reading Vegan MoFo Day 1: Herbed Mushroom & Tempeh Veggie Burger

Date Carob Rock Cakes

     Rock cakes immediately remind me of Rubeus Hagrid, the lovable half giant from Harry Potter.  When I looked for a rock cake recipe ages ago, I was shocked to see how simple they were to make.  As a child, I always pictured rock cakes as something unappealing to eat that people always made anyway… Continue reading Date Carob Rock Cakes
