A closing Vegan MoFo post - recipes from elsewhere and a final recap here


Today is the last of my 2014 Vegan MoFo posts. I know there is another day of September tomorrow, but I am treating this as the tail end of the month and concluding it with this round up / wrap up summary.

Other than one forgotten Friday post that was published on a Saturday, I have shared posts on 5 weekdays each week for the last 4 weeks. Advance preparation (particularly for the first 2 weeks) meant that it wasn't too hard. However, I will be pleased to return to less frequent posting now. Three or four posts a week is a better fit for me, and also seems more useful. I am not sure that anyone needs or wants a recipe from me every day of the week!

All in all, I am glad to have participated in Vegan MoFo again, and I've enjoyed the other MoFo posts that I've read. I am including a selection of appealing examples below (Johanna of Green Gourmet Giraffe did a similar round up over the weekend, so check out her list for additional ideas). After that, I have a final summary of my own posts from this month.

Vegan MoFo recipes from elsewhere

Sweet








Savoury


Ghetto hummus (chickpeas left whole!) from Mad Hatter's Pantry

Hearty Colcannon (a potato dish on a chickpea pancake) from Real Food + Travel






Vegan MoFo posts from Bite-Sized Thoughts
Breakfasts- 





Desserts-





A good many of my favourites are in the dessert section, but I did also enjoy making Moroccan and Ethiopian dishes for the first time, and discovering vegan French toast!

I'm looking forward to returning with some more general posts later this week...

Do you have any favourites from my last month of recipes, or other Vegan MoFo posts you've read?

  3. Thanks for linking to me! I'm relieved MoFo is over (life got too busy for me in the final week) but I'm going to miss all the awesomeness!

  5. Congrats on making it through Vegan MoFo! I'm still disappointed not to have been able to take part but this month just wouldn't have been possible.
    I'm so impressed with the quality of the posts all you mo-fo-ers have shared!

  7. Aw, thanks for the shout out to my pop tarts! You were an absolute rock star this month - I can't believe that you didn't miss any posts. I'm still very seriously planning to try out the potato fudge :D

    1. I hope you do! I think it would pair well with the pop tarts actually - kind of retro and very comfort food focused ;)

  8. Good on you for keeping up with all the posts while also working full-time. I find three or four posts a week to be about my maximum too. I could do more but then everything else going on in my life starts to suffer. Thanks for some great recipes during vegan mofo - I particularly liked the lemon meringue pie xx

    1. Thanks so much Charlie. And yes, it is so often the case that more blogging means being less on top of life! It can all start to feel a bit rushed.

  11. oh just saw I didn't comment on this - probably off looking through all the links - lots of fun stuff and loved your vegan mofo - the lemon meringue is probably the most amazing to me - and tonight I suggested to sylvia that we try liquorice cake some day - thanks for the shout out too

    1. I really recommend the liquorice cake - I would to anyone, but I think from the cakes you like you'd enjoy it :-)
