Rounding up the veggie webs

This post is part of Vegan MoFo, the Vegan Month of Food.  Enjoy, and visit other MoFo bloggers this month too!

It’s Vegan MoFo, which means there’s plenty go around on the veggie blogs.  Check out some of my favorite MoFo posts from this week!

Spiralizing (?) zucchini is a neat trick–kinda like pasta with no guilt and extra nutrition!  A Soy Bean has a recipe for nice-looking raw zucchini pasta dish.  If, like me, you’re not raw, you can saute the zucchini a bit and heat the sauce for a little more autumn comfort.

I’m usually either too lazy to carve a jack-o-lantern or too daunted by the clean-up required to get fully into the spirit of things this time of year.  This year, howevs, All You Eat is Vegetables? may have inspired me to jump in with the addition of recipes for spiced pumpkin seeds–yum!

I love this blog’s name, and I suspect I’ll love this dish just as much.  Body by Chickpeas tells us how to make “Bosillos Calientes.”

If you, like me, bought black-eyed peas like a year ago, thinking you were just that one ingredient away from becoming a master chef of the Delta, try Down Home Vegan’s recipe for Vegan Hoppin’ John.

And finally, this little joke arrived in my inbox today.  I share because I care:  A CEO, a tea party member, and a union guy are at a table with a dozen cookies. The CEO takes 11 cookies and turns to the tea partier and says, “Look out — the union guy wants your cookie.


Rounding up the veggie webs

Oh, the internets, so full of the information.  Enjoy a round-up of what’s going on today, while I think about getting my butt back in the kitchen (you know, where a woman belongs).

Jess at Get Sconed! etc. has a nice write-up of Veg Fest 2011, which did its thing in my very own little town.  I missed it, which may have been for the best–those decadent food samples are dangerous.

Susan at Fat Free Vegan Kitchen shares her all-too-common struggle to find a tasty low-fat guacamole.  Though I haven’t independently verified it, she says mission accomplished!

No Meat Athlete makes me simultaneously excited to try fruitarianism and cautiously curious about the term “footbagger.”

Post Punk Kitchen totally gets me, and my craving for southern food (for which I blame my dad’s Alabama roots).  Thankfully, PPK also delivers the cure, with this recipe for Blackened Scrambled Tofu & Garlicky Grits.

Finally, I am most excited to announce that Vegan MoFo is coming!  That’s the Vegan Month of Food, and it means that veggie bloggers everywhere are going to be posting like mad.  Keep an eye out for MoFo posts here, and check out others’ extra efforts around the veggie webs.
