Pancakes with blueberries and a few VeganMoFo favourites

(Nederlandstalige versie)

A few years ago I did a “brunch on Sunday” post every week during the Vegan Month of Food, and I thought I’d bring that back (or at least for today). I meant to put this up yesterday so I’ll probably update twice today.


I found a recipe for ricotta pancakes in the book Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights and decided to veganise it using fresh tofu. The end result was OK; I actually liked the addition of the tofu, but I didn’t have any lemon zest or lemon extract to flavour them so they were a little plain on their own. Fortunately we had blueberries and golden syrup in the fridge so this was still a lovely breakfast. I definitely want to try the pancakes again sometime.

Since that’s about all I have to share for today, I thought I’d list some of my favourites from the VeganMoFo blogs I’ve read so far.

Did you know there are at least three blogs doing Harry Potter themes this year? These triple bacon sandwiches from Dumbledore’s Vegan Army and this onion soup from Vegan Knyquol are both inspired by Mrs Weasley’s cooking, and this spotted dick by Miss Kitchen Witch looks like the perfect dessert for a Hogwarts-inspired feast.

Jenny from The Lusting Mind is devoting the month to meals inspired by Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain. Her posts make me want to watch this film again soon, preferably while enjoying a soup and salad or waffles with jam. I’m hoping for a post on crème brûlée as well.

Hasta la Vegan is spending MoFo cooking from bizarre and outdated cookbooks and features gems such as Crunchy Topped Cauliflower, A Sculpted Mound Fancifully Garnished, and “Breadless” toast (spoiler alert: it’s a slice of tofu).

If you’d like to use MoFo as an opportunity to learn about a new cuisine, have a look at these blogs: Mämmi‘s theme is Finnish coffee table culture, Jessica from Ichiban Vegan writes about Japanese food, Imogen Michel blogs about Vegan Scotland, and Rosie from Rosie’s Vegan Kitchen shares her vegan versions of Welsh recipes.

Finally, Julie from Apologies for the Novel is doing weekly themes, and she’s also ending all her posts with pictures of her cats which really I think we should all start doing.

    • Me too! I’ve been reading using Randomofo and the lists sorted by language and country, but I haven’t made my way through the main blog list yet. Maybe by the end of the month. :)

  1. Aw thank you so much for mentioning my blog, I’m glad you are enjoying it! I looked at the other two on days one and two but I have them bookmarked to read starting in October they had such great ideas I didn’t want to be influenced by their posts and look forward to trying theirs down the road.

    • Yes, I love it! So far you all seem to have your own approach to the theme and there are so many dishes in the books to choose from that I don’t think you have to worry about being repetitive even with three blogs doing HP! But I can see how you’d prefer to read the other blogs afterwards. I’m just glad there are going to be a lot of new vegan Harry Potter recipes out there by the end of the month. :)

  2. I didnt even know about the other Harry Potter blogs since I’ve just been random mofoing. Thanks for mentioning it! I think I’ll make a post about it, too.

    • Thank you! I’ve mostly used the syrup on top of pancakes and in crumbles, but that treacle tart you made looks so good. And isn’t it awesome to have so much vegan Harry Potter love going on? I’m looking forward to seeing what other things you come up with! :)
