Nut-Free Queso

  Today's prompt for Vegan MoFo is "creamy without nuts".  All vegans who cook can appreciate the challenge with this.  Nuts are what gives vegan cheese life.  Within recent history, however, some wonderful vegan cheese products have been born without containing nuts whatsoever.  These options give the rather large population of people with nut allergies… Continue reading Nut-Free Queso

Turmeric Rice Bowl

Today's prompt for VeganMofo is all about color.  I chose a color that I normally don't like in any other context except when it comes to foods.  Some of my favorite foods happen to be yellow.  However, I don't like to wear yellow clothing or use yellow in my decorating.  I have nothing against the… Continue reading Turmeric Rice Bowl

Tempeh Beet Burgers

For the "...but protein" prompt today, I made some burgers.  There's nothing quite as anti-vegan as ground up meat so I've made my beloved tempeh burger with some beet in it to make it look a little more "convincing" to someone who might be skeptical of vegan burgers.  I've had the pleasure of trying the… Continue reading Tempeh Beet Burgers

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
