» VeganMoFo: Iron Chef #2. Don’t Eat Off The Sidewalk!

VeganMoFo: Iron Chef #2.

Sorry this is so late, my uterus took me prisoner and forced me to watch Firefly and eat tater tots all day.  It was miserable.

We had a lot of desserts this time, and I can’t tell you how hard it is to look at all of these pictures when all I want to do is fall face first into a chocolate cake.

All of the bases were covered.  We had strudel, muffins, caramel sauce (holy crap), more caramel, sandies, pancakes, cheesecake, a galette, dessert pizza, baked pears, mini-pies, and more muffins.  I hate you all for torturing me, you inconsiderate jerks!

On the savory side we have a pear and hazelnut feta salad, stuffed squash, and stuffing.

There are two honorable mentions.  First, Jenn because she didn’t make just one dish, she made a complete dinner from drink to dessert.  Second, A-K for making this amazing looking raw dessert.  Not only does it sound good, but the pictures are amazing.

As for what I made, it’s not pretty but it was good!  I spent the day playing Rock Band and got home starving, so I threw this together pretty quickly.  I grilled my pears (which you should do, because holy crap is that good).  I made my sauce with almond butter, soy sauce, ginger sauteed in hot chile oil, and coconut milk.  I threw in some fried tofu and eggplant for good measure and then sprinkled almond meal on top.  In hindsight I should’ve added more color.

    What you need is a twenty sided die to pick the ‘gredients next time.

  • Next weeks theme: pickles and chocolate.

    I think your links are mixed up…the “Jenn” link takes me to the right spot, but the “A-K” link takes be to the same place as “Jenn”.

  • So I know I’m way late, but here’s what I came up with: http://veganhomemade.wordpress.com/2008/10/15/veganmofo-iron-chef-challenge-2/

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  • haha, my uterus loves firefly too!

    dinner looks yum as well 🙂

  • I saw your blog name and had to visit and tell you how wonderfully playful it is – love, love, love it! And then I learned of your uterus. Now, even though it’s my first visit to your site, I feel I know you maybe too well. (JK!)

    I look forward to reading your lovely blog and I hope that next month leaves you tater-tot free (or at least pain-free!)

    Wow… did I just ramble that much?

    I’ve read your blog here and there but now you’ve got a loyal reader. As a Browncoat & vegetarian interested in veganism… you had me at Firefly (and well, salty fried potatoes are a good plan when your uterus stages a coup).

    Xie xie!
