The Vegan Month of Food is one of my favorite things about fall, and this year’s vegan recipes have not disappointed! Here are some of the favorite yummy things from other MoFo bloggers so far.
We are about 2/3 of the way through this year’s Vegan Month of Food, and as usual I’m blown away by the awesome recipes that folks have been sharing! The MoFo is a blogging challenge at its heart, and for me it’s also about celebrating the awesome online vegan community with folks from all over the world.
Every year I discover new vegan blogs and fall more in love with old favorites. This year, I discovered Vegan in Brighton and Fork & Beans. If you guys aren’t following these folks, I highly recommend it!
My 10 Favorite Vegan Recipes (so far!) from Vegan MoFo 2013
1. Carrot Cake Ice Cream from Vegan Richa
Richa’s vegan recipes are always a celebration of strong flavors, and her carrot cake ice cream is no exception. The thing that makes me love it even more? You don’t need an ice cream maker to make it! She sandwiches the ice cream between ginger cookies, you guys! Ginger cookies!
2. Horchata from Eating Appalachia
Horchata is a traditional Latin American rice drink that’s sweet and cinnamony. Jes at Eating Appalachia shares a super simple recipe for making your own. My favorite discovery with this recipe was that you don’t have to cook anything to make horchata. You just have to wait while it steeps overnight.
3. Tofu Scramble on Toasted Baguette from Luminous Vegans
I love a lazy weekend brunch, and this vegan recipe takes one of my brunchy staples and makes it super special. My tofu scrambles aren’t nearly this beautifully-presented on Sunday mornings, but Ketty has me inspired to up my game. Sometimes the easy recipes are the most inspiring!
4. Vegan Peeps from Fork & Beans
Fork & Beans is a new-to-me vegan food blog, and for the MoFo, she’s recreating her favorite candies. Peeps were one of those guilty pleasure candies that I miss a whole lot around the holidays. Her spooky ghost peeps use only three ingredients and are so freaking adorable!
5. BBQ Tofu Tacos with Mexicali Slaw from The Little Foxes
You know that I love a taco night, and these beauties look so simple and delicious! When this recipe came across my feed reader, I sent it straight to my husband. I need to hit the store for a few ingredients, but this is definitely 100% about to happen in my kitchen!
6. The Pad Thai-co from Lazy Smurf’s Guide
Speaking of tacos! Lazy Smurf is doing a taco cleanse all this month. What is a taco cleanse? It’s a grueling diet where you eat tacos at every single meal for the entire month of September. The Pad Thai-co is totally cheating, and I love it. She stuffs vegan pad Thai into a taco shell and calls it supper. And I love her for it!
7. Mac & Shews from Vegan in Brighton
So, this is actually a PPK recipe, but I discovered it through Vegan in Brighton, and it looks amazing! I love that this recipe includes sauerkraut – it looks so unique and delicious! The base is a roux, so you know that is a creamy bowl of goodness.
8. Peanut Butter Creme and Raspberry Chiffon Pie from An Unrefined Vegan
Annie at An Unrefined Vegan is doing a whole month of PB&J-inspired recipes. The original list comes from Buzzfeed and is far from vegan. She’s going through and updating the recipes to be cruelty free. She’s kind of killing me with the PBJ goodness – it was so hard to choose a favorite!
9. Bacon Wrapped Cashew Cheese Stuffed Dates from Cadry’s Kitchen
Sweet, savory, creamy, and salty? Don’t mind if I do! I’ve done vegan bacon wrapped dates before, but adding cashew cheese is just plain genius and really sends this recipe over the top. I can’t wait for an excuse to make these!
10. Mango Chia Rice Pudding from Kelli’s Vegan Kitchen
I love a chia pudding, and her tropical spin makes it extra delicious. What a delicious way to use up leftover brown rice! The best part? If you have cooked rice left from supper, this recipe involves no cooking at all. Just mash, stir, and let it set up in the fridge.
I’d love to hear from you MoFoers out there! What vegan recipes have stood out to you so far this month?
