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.
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??
