VeganMoFo: Blueberry Oat Groat Shake

VeganMoFo: Blueberry Oat Groat Shake

A quick post today, as I have a little bit of time to squeeze this in before weekend madness ensues (involving cleaning, making snacks for and hosting a feminist film screening tonight, a field trip to Duluth for my Master Naturalist course tomorrow, homework, farmer’s market with an avid vegan blog follower, and my first [...]

VeganMoFo: Another Terry Tester! (Sorta.)

Today I made a sort-of Terry test recipe: Whole Spelt* Chia Tortillas.  (*Really it’s supposed to be whole wheat.)  Feeling pretty comfortable with my corn tortilla-making abilities, I’ve always wanted to tackle it’s burrito- and quesadilla-appropriate cousin.  Lucky for us testers, Terry posted a flour tortilla recipe, and not just a flour tortilla recipe, but [...]

VeganMoFo: Raw and Cooked

When I opened my cupboards yesterday, I looked up and saw all these brown pouches full of fancy raw superfoods I’d bought awhile ago.  And despite my claim in #24 here, I thought I’d give raw chocolate a go.  I’ve added nibs to smoothies, but apparently all the wrong kinds of smoothies, because I always [...]

VeganMoFo: Paying Attention

Yesterday’s meal when I got home from work: raw buckwheat crispies with fresh orchard apples, organic strawberries (free from work!), cinnamon, and almond milk.  While I wish something like this is what I ate everyday for breakfast or an after-work snack, I’ve been feeling myself slip a little in the awareness department of food and [...]

VeganMoFo: Middle Eastern Dinner

My ladyfriend is into Italian, South Asian, and Middle Eastern food most, and tonight she called requesting we try our hand at homemade spinach pie.  There’s a great Lebanese deli in Northeast Minneapolis called Emily’s that makes the best tabouli EVER, and their hummus and baba ghanoush is nothing to sniff at either!  They also [...]

VeganMoFo: Raw Apple Crisp and Veggieful Dinner

This morning I got up, went to the dehydrator, and pulled out a tray of Maple Cinnamon Buckwheat Crispies from Raw Food Real World.  (No, maple isn’t really raw…ooh, controversy!)  Then I sliced some apples, mixed them with a “syrup” out of dates, cinnamon, cardamom, lemon juice and coconut water, and topped them with the [...]

Veganmofo: The Inevitable Quiz

I feel like a total slacker for doing this, but… the weather has been cold and dreary and too horrible for any decent food photography.  To avoid missing another day, I’m going with a quiz I’ve seen pop up on a few blogs during MoFo.  Have no fear, the weather isn’t going to be getting [...]

Veganmofo: A Lovely Sunday

Sunday morning I got up and decided to whip that cornbread into a sweet bread pudding for brekkie.  I kind of winged it and in hindsight should have looked at a recipe before diving in to get a more appropriate custard thing going on, but… I also added raisins, pecans, amaranth (because it is AWESOME), [...]

VeganMoFo: Raggmunkar

Apologies for my delay in posting this… our overpriced internet service seems to be disconnecting frequently and I only have the patience to jump through hoops so many times. Being a big fan of sweet potatoes (and their more impressive nutritional profile), I don’t buy many regular potatoes these days, but I’ve been getting a [...]

VeganMoFo: Pumpkin (and Other Orange Delights)

Tonight I found myself alone for dinner at the start of a seldom-experienced three-day weekend with chilly damp temperatures outside and no money to spend.  Luckily I was loaded up with CSA veggies, recently rehydrated cannellini beans, and a lot of baking ingredients.  I got to bust out my newly acquired vintage holiday-themed Pyrex lidded [...]

VeganMoFo: Going Vegan

Because it wouldn’t be right without at least one picture of food… These are Lime Oatmeal Coconut Date Cookies I made for my friends Melanie and Garrett, who had a moving-to-Iowa gathering last night.  I thought they needed some treats for the road, and, being agave- and date-sweetened, even I didn’t have to feel guilty [...]
