Today is World Vegetarian Day, the kick-off of Vegetarian Awareness Month. On the website worldvegetarianday.org non-veggies can make a pledge to eat veggie for a month. So, I suggest that you leave some random hints with your non-veggie friends and stimulate them to eat vegetarian by inviting them over for a dinner party!
Vegan MoFo couldn’t have picked a better month. VeganMoFo stand for the Vegan Month of Food (for those who haven’t been around the blogverse lately). It’s an initiative developed by Post Punk Kitchen and inspired by the National Novel Writing Month. Different blogs write as many posts (preferred daily) for an entire month. Of course these posts only contain vegan recipes and information. Go and have a look how many blogs are participating this year! I nearly fell out of my chair! I plan to go along with the flow next year.
On this beautiful World Vegetarian Day I want to share some interesting websites, information and appetizing recipes:
- Addicted to Veggies’ Apple a day Parfait looks incredibly delicious. Apples are my favorite kind of fruit and there’s lots of them right now. I know how to make that big pile of apples go a bit lighter!
- Another mmmmmmm-recipe with apples is this Apple Pie Cheesecake on Manifest Vegan. You just can’t go wrong with caramelized apples.
- I’ve been longing to make cinnamon rolls for quit a while now and I think these Quick and Easy Cinnamon Rolls from Namely Marely might do the trick.
- Mama Pea doesn’t need an introduction. I bet everyone just drools by looking at this awesome Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake.
- I just looooove guacamole. I could eat it every day. On Fat Free Vegan Kitchen you can find an incredible Low-Fat Guacamole recipe from the cookbook World Vegan Feast. I’m definitely going to try this!
- Maybe you gals already know, but I am not a mushroom fan at all. I don’t like the texture nor the taste. But this Mushroom Walnut Pesto on Oh She Glows made my mouth water. I think when it’s blended in with those different tastes, I might actually like it.
- Another thing I don’t like is cauliflower. Healthy Happy Life made a Roasted Cauliflower Pumpkin Swirl Dip, again added to other components I think it will go down easily.
- This vivacious Pumpkin Apple Walnut Harvest Rice sure looks good, doesn’t it? Another one of those recipes you can’t say no to on Healthy Happy Life.
- Not to forget Ricki Heller’s Vegan Green “Eggs and Ham”. Also found on her blog Diet Dessert and Dogs.
- Und last but not least, these Molasses Crinkles from An Edible Mosaic are my kinda thing. I think they could easily be veganized by replacing the egg with a flax egg.
