Vegan MoFo, the Vegan Month of Food anual blogging challenge begins on September 1, 2014. This will be my third year participating I think. Because the challenge happens right before the Jewish holidays and many of my readers have holiday meal prep on their minds, my theme will once again be veganizing some Jewish and Middle Eastern favorites.
I need to put up 20 posts in 30 days to complete the challenge. Last week I already started choosing recipes, making my blog calendar, assembling all needed ingredients. Today hopefully I’ll get some things pre-cooked and photographed.
There is no time to do recipe development and testing with this blogging pace, so however things turn out is how they show up here. Oh the thrill.
If you are not already subscribed to get my posts by email, you can do so in the upper right corner of the page. Also you can check the MoFo website after the event begins to get the RSS feed of all the participating blogs (warning: you will have no time for anything else for the entire month if you read all those blogs!). They also have a breakdown by country and theme. Last year I was the only Israeli participating and I think the only blog from the Middle East! I wonder if this year will be different? You can also follow their page on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram.
I don’t want to ruin the suspense, but I can tempt a little by saying we will hopefully have recipes for vegan bagels, bialys, chopped liver, egg salad, tuna salad, challah, matzoh ball soup, spanikopita, meatballs in sweet and sour sauce, beet hummus, Syrian lentils, Tunisian squash, Freekah with dried limes and crusty potatoes, and maybe even vegan gefilte fish and schnitzel!!
Are you tempted? I hope so!
Let me know if there are any other dishes you’d like to see veganized and I will try to work it in.
So I will see you back here on Monday, September 1st with recipe #1!!!
