Despite the fact that I only made it through about 7 posts in last year's Vegan MoFo, I've decided to try again. I'm not preparing for craft fairs this year, so hopefully I'll be able to dedicate the time to the blog that it deserves.
This year, for the first time, I decided to subscribe to a veg magazine. I've been enjoying my subscription to Vegetarian Times. One of my favorite things is their "1 food 5 ways" section each month. So, that's what I've decided to try as my theme for the next month. I'm going to attempt to use 6 of my favorite kitchen staples and give you 5 ways to use each of them (some might even have a bonus 6th one).
Most of the time on this blog, I tend to use cookbook recipes and just give you the gluten/soy substitutions. But, I'm really going to make the effort to give you recipes (or at least links to them) for everything that I include in the 1 food 5 ways posts. I'm pretty new at writing out recipes and instructions, so if something is unclear, feel free to ask.
Some posts will be really basic and simple (might even seem un-postworthy, but I remember what it was like to be completely new at this), others will take a little more effort. I'll post some favorites of mine. I'll also be posting some experiments. I might even be trying to veganize/deglutenize some old pre-vegan favorites. I'm hoping for some big wins, but am also fully aware that some could very well blow up in my face. Win or lose, I plan on posting them any way. Maybe you can help me fix them!
No matter how it ends up, I hope we have a good month together looking at "1 food 5 ways" starting tomorrow with CASHEWS.
