Well helloooo there! I decided to wait til MoFo was over before posting these pics. And also, today is World Vegan Day - Happy WVD to all the vegans out there!! :-)
I'm starting off with the food from Saturday night. My awesome friend Jojo had a party and made a crap tonne of ace food. When looking for inspiration, I of course headed straight to the queen of Halloweegan's blog - Wing it Vegan and found these awesome peppers. As you can see, my carving skills are not as great as River's! ....
This one ended up with a snaggle toof!! hehe
I also made cornbread, as my other friend Kip made chili, which I forgot to take a pic of! DOH.
Onto the stuff Jojo made (head over to Jojo's blog for more info and also for pictures of the gingerbread house shw made that was pretty awesome!). She made sugar cookies:
Jelly - with eyeballs in! oooooh scary.
Mummy dogs - sausages wrapped in pastry = genius!
oh and me, dressed as a zombie, shovelling a cake into ma gob!
The next morning, we got up and went to Iydea Cafe. We all had the same thing, the vegan breakfast bap and a side of hash browns. The baps was like a lentil burger with tomatoes and avocado on top, it was pretty rad. And the hash browns were perfectly greasy but not too greasy!
On to yesterday. I finally dug some cookbooks out of storage and headed straight for this recipe from Appetite for Reduction: Arabian Lentil & Rice Soup. It's AWESOME. I've made it before, but last time I didn't have a lemon, so left that out. I'm really glad I had it this time though, it really makes a difference.
And a couple more recipes from AFR, the soft broccoli polenta and chilli lime rubbed tofu. I wasn't crazy about the tofu, but that was more a texture thing that the flavour, I like the flavour, I should have pressed the tofu though. The polenta was good, but once I added nooch it was amazing. I wish I'd made a more exciting veggie to go with this though, those were just plain, steamed green beans and they were underwhelming!
Tonight I think I'm gonna dig out Hot Damn & Hell Yeah and make my favourite lentil burgers. What are you guys making for World Vegan Day??
*post title is from this song that I will now be singing all day!
