Vegan MoFo: Iron Chef challenge!

For those of you not on the ppk (wtf, mate), one of the ideas we had for content was to do an Iron Chef like challenge where someone (which at least this week is me) picks two ingredients and gives people the weekend to make and post their dish.

There is no prize or winners, it’s just for fun and to keep you on your toes.  What does that even mean?  I don’t know about you, but i’m pretty much always on my toes.  Rarely on my fingers.

There aren’t really any rules, except that you should post your dish by noon on Sunday, so that gives you all day Saturday to plan and shop and cook.  It wouldn’t be a challenge if you got a ton of time!  And obviously, it has to include both ingredients.

I had a tough time trying to decide what two things sounded good together but not totally obvious.  A little obvious is okay.  I also wanted to go with things that are currently in season. And it’s two and not one because I didn’t want to be like, “…TOFU!  GO!”  Because again, not much of a challenge.

The first secret ingredients are…

APPLES AND GINGER!

Both are in season in the fall, and they pair together nicely so I think this is a good one to get our feet wet on.  I’m going to do it but honestly I have no idea what to make and I didn’t go to the store early to keep it as fair as I can.  I’m really excited to see what everyone comes up with and I know most people think that apples automatically equal dessert, but i’m going to try something savory myself!

Also if you make a dish, post a link here after you upload it and i’ll pick some highlights (or all of them, depends on how many people do it!) and blog them.
