It’s September and that means kinder temperatures, leaf peepers invading New England, pumpkins, and Vegan MoFo!!!
For you non-vegans, or vegans who live in an internet-less cave, Vegan MoFo is an annual blogging event and it is indescribably delicious. Participating bloggers share their favorite recipes and food stories on a near-daily basis, leading me to near-daily ravenous cravings. It’s a good time.
In honor of the first week of Vegan MoFo, here are my Top 5 Vegan MoFo Bloggers, in no particular order:
Many of you vegans probably know Angela’s blog featuring healthy, yet paradoxically delicious recipes, such as the Vegan Enchiladas with Cilantro Avocado Cream Sauce and the pictured Ultimate 4-Layer Vegan Sandwich. The mere mention of the word “avocado” throws me into Pavlovian salivation. For you cookbook collectors, Angela is publishing!
Full disclosure: I’m a little biased towards this blog—much of it is devoted to veganizing German cuisine. Have I mentioned I’m originally from Germany? Well now I have. For this year’s MoFo, Mihl is veganizing classic German desserts. YUM. Also, she takes requests! The dumplings in the photo above are her veganized version of Dampfnudeln, requested by yours truly.
Look at those chocolate curls. LOOK AT THEM. How could I not love this blog? I can’t eat chocolate because it give me headaches (is that the cruelest thing or what?), but I can live vicariously through pictures like this. And Claryn has a bazillion other fantastic recipes: the Overnight Breakfast Casserole, Pumpkin Agave Muffins, and Reuben with Corned Beef Seitan particularly make my mouth water. I really shouldn’t be writing this blog post before lunch, my hummus sandwich will sadly disappoint.
This one’s still new to me but I’m already in love. I made the Natural “Artificial” Strawberry Milk the second it was posted and it is amazeballs. Ketty started off her Vegan MoFo with this easy and divine cashew cheese. She also writes a lot of reviews of vegan restaurants, and has a whole page dedicated to resources for vegans. And, um, Baked Peaches with Coconut-Vanilla Cashew Cream. !!!
Now that I’m officially REALLY EFFING HUNGRY, I’m gonna go grocery shopping. This Luna Bar just isn’t cutting it. Don’t forget to check out the Vegan MoFo blog to learn more about Vegan MoFo and see a complete list of bloggers.
