During my past two Vegan MoFo's I have bookmarked so many recipes and only ended up making a very small portion of them. On MoFo Mondays I will be digging through my MoFo bookmarks and testing out some of these recipes. As the month progresses I'll be cooking and writing about a few recipes from this month too!
Tempeh has filled me with trepidation for years as I didn't get off to a great start with the fermented soy bean. Since then I've discovered a couple of ways to appreciate it, my favourite being this fantastic lasagne I make on a regular basis during colder months. Tempeh Tuesdays are going to feature new tempeh cooking experiments with the aim of adding some new recipes to my tempeh rotation.
Last year's theme for Vegan MoFo was called Around the world in 20 days where I cooked food from 20 randomly selected countries. I had a lot of fun with this theme and planned to continue it after the month ended on a regular basis. It hasn't worked out as regular as I had hoped as I've only completed another 8 countries in the past 10 months so I'm hoping to reignite my passion for around the cooking this month.
My pantry is in dire need of a jolly good clean out! Over time I have accumulated so many different types of flours, sauces, beans, tinned food, etc. and it's ridiculous that there are ingredients sitting in my pantry that I've never even tried. I loathe throwing away food so the aim of Tidy-up Thursdays is to give the pantry a bit of a spring clean which may involve cooking with items that have past their best before dates!
When it came to Friday I couldn't decide on a single theme as I had too many ideas so Fridays are going to incorporate a few of the different themes I was planning to write about. I'm not going to give too much away yet, you'll just have to wait and see what is in store!
I don't have much of a sweet tooth but my fellows definitely do. They usually pester me to bake their favourite recipes when they have a hankering for something sweet so I'm hoping to expand my baking repertoire this month with some more challenging items than the lemon slice, choc-chip cookies and rum balls I make regularly.
I posted summary posts throughout my first and second Vegan MoFo to keep track of the recipes I've bookmarked and to share some MoFo love around. It's also a helpful reference for me to look back after the month has ended so I'm doing this again and I may have some surprises in store for Sundays too.
How does my plan for the month sound to you? Are there any themes you are looking forward to reading about? Hope you are all looking forward to a fun filled month of delicious vegan food too!
