MoFo 10: Gluten Free Pecan Pie

​     For my "fall tradition", I'm featuring pecan pie!     My mom's birthday is about 2 weeks before Thanksgiving.  She's never been much of a sweet lover.  She doesn't care for cake either.  She does, however, love pecan pie.  When I first went vegan, I started making pies for her birthday each year.  I usually… Continue reading MoFo 10: Gluten Free Pecan Pie

Mofo 8: Gothic Purple Soup with Eggplant Chips

     Today's color scheme is "goth" inspired...I went with purple, since I happened to find a bag of organic purple sweet potatoes one day.  It was a very exciting find.  I've never tried these little guys before...I'm sure I'll love them just as much as their orange and white cousins!  Sweet potatoes are a… Continue reading Mofo 8: Gothic Purple Soup with Eggplant Chips

MoFo 6: Japanese Omelette with Sauteed Mushrooms

     Today's prompt is "favorite food", which, if you've ever seen my first year participating in Vegan MoFo, you would know is Japanese Food! I love to cook Japanese inspired dishes that combine the American hodgepodge, often unorganized style of cooking with traditional ingredients and simple flavors.  I love food that is prepared in… Continue reading MoFo 6: Japanese Omelette with Sauteed Mushrooms

MoFo 5: Chipotle Portabella Cheesesteak Burritos

     Fusion food day is here! Last year, I made some risotto with a Mexican twist.  It was quite magical.  For some reason, I can't stay away from that theme so here I am again.  I'm fusing the burrito and spicy chipotle flavor with the Philly staple: the cheesesteak. Cheesesteak was always something I… Continue reading MoFo 5: Chipotle Portabella Cheesesteak Burritos

Mofo 4: Korean BBQ Tofu with Pajeori

     Today's recipe is a simple one that I love.  I almost never make Korean inspired food.  I also can't really go out to get it since Korean restaurants are typically not vegan friendly.  When I was younger, I ate at a few Korean BBQ restaurants with my family.  One of those restaurants was… Continue reading Mofo 4: Korean BBQ Tofu with Pajeori
