Welcome to the weekly food blog of VegWeb! Like you, we're obsessed with food and will be bringing in some of our favorite foodie experts to help us hone our culinary skills. Check back every Wednesday for the latest and greatest from our roster of bloggers.
Coconuts are pretty amazing.You can make everything from ice cream to curry with their magical goodness. In the winter months, they're especially appealing because who doesn't want a break from the cold? Living in perpetually chilly San Francisco, I can at least pretend I'm not wearing two sweaters by cranking up the heat and making some of the delicious coconut recipes on VegWeb.
It's the most wonderful time of the year! Awards show season. I love it because if there's one thing I like more than eating delicious vegan food, it is making fun of insane outfits. The Grammy's are probably the best for this (please see: Bjork's swan dress), but the Oscars never fail to disappoint. There is always at least one coo-coo bananas 'fit in the bunch. Plus, it's equally entertaining to salivate over all the gorgeous gowns that you need to own. I usually tune out before the actual ceremony because it's bo-ring...
Now that you've OD'ed on chocolate and conversation hearts, let's get the sugar out of our systems with some healthy eats! Of course, since this is VegWeb, that doesn't mean boring, bland, or tasteless. Instead, it's incredible whole foods that fill you up and don't give you the sugar shakes! Which, granted, are very delicious, but not practical for every day living.
Let's dive in to rich soups and crisp salads. Oooh, and curry! And pizza! Who else is starving?? Let's get busy.
First, I gotta say. If you're a pie person, it's time you exit the building. OK, maybe not that harsh, but in my eyes, pie will always play second fiddle to delicious cake. If there's a sweet treat that's more decadent and delightful than cake, I don't want to know what it is. I love all kinds of cake, but my favorites involve mounds of frosting. Yes, frosting is the reason for the (cake) season, and I cannot get enough.
It's Super Bowl Sunday! Or, for some of us, Puppy Bowl Sunday! No matter whether you celebrate touchdowns or adorable pups, there's no need to go without your favorite snacks. I don't know the difference between a forward and a goalie (I'm just throwing out sports terms), but I do love a good party. The secret to a successful party is a variety of super tasty treats, from salty to sweet. Start off with something crunchy and fresh, and then move on to creamy cheesy delights and BBQ goodness. Then, wrap up the big game with a sweet delight. Let's go, team!
You guys, I gotta be real. It's super cold outside and all I want to do is stay inside, stand over the heater, and eat pie. Since eating delicious chocolate pudding pie at every meal is a little unrealistic (I can't dream that big!), I've resorted to indulging in dinner pies. Whether they're filled with veggies, vegan meats, cream sauces, or chunky potatoes -- I just can't stop! Here are a few of my favorite:
Happy New Year, VegWebbers! We made it to 2013, and I don't know about you, but I'm freaking starving. Of course, since it's the begining of the year, I want to start things off deliciously. No more messing around with bland and boring, VegWeb has ridiculously tasty recipes that will keep us healthy into 2013, and beyond!
VegWeb has lots of amazing members, and today I'd like to shine the spotlight on the always delicious Vegan Miss! The creator of so many amazing recipes -- from super simple Raw Kale Salad to more advanced techniques used in her famous vegan deep-dish pizza, her recipes never fail to disappoint.
OK, this was really hard. We have some darn fine Thanksgiving recipes here and I'm hungry! I can't wait to sit down to a huge plate of mashed potatoes, green beans, and my all time favorite vegan centerpiece -- Cheesy Lasagna. I know it's unconventional, but it's so, so delicious. I can't get enough!
