Vegan MoFo Round Up 15: Nice as Pie and other stories

Regular readers of my blog will know how much I love pies. For those of you who are not regular readers I FREAKING LOVE PIES!
Savoury pies or sweet pies I’m not fussed. Just give me something enclosed in pastry and I’m happy.
Lots of MoFo’ers have been feeding my pie addiction, so to speak, and here’s a pick of the bunch for today’s round up.

Courtney is making something new beginning with each letter of the alphabet for her MoFo theme and today’s letter is G.
G for Gas Station Pies!

G for GOD DAMN and GET IN MAH TUMMY!

A Bug and a Fish is testing and photographing recipes for Robin Robertson’s upcoming cookbook Quick Fix Vegan. This Roasted Vegetable Tart looks and sounds INCREDIBLE

Roasted Vegetable Tart

Pumpkin Pie has been making an appearance all over the MoFo and this Vanilla Pumpkin Pie from Wasabi Peas is simple and not too sweet. A Great holiday recipe!

I'll take a slice of that please

This Pumpkin Pie with a Gingersnap Crust would also be perfect for the holidays.

Mmmm Gingersnap Crust

And talking of Holiday recipes these Cranberry Pistacio Biscotti from Dreamin’ It Vegan look so festive and tasty – I’m really liking the flavour combo of these.

Cranberry Pistacio Biscotti

Cheese cake counts as a pie right?
Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheezecake Bites!

HOLLER!

The Vegan Mouse (who just happens to be one of my favourite bloggers) has been making and scoffing these awesome looking Calzones

How crazy good do these look!

And whilst this is not a pie but it caught my eye none-the-less.

Potato and Beets

Google translator calls it potatoes under a fur coat – lol. And whilst fur coats are definitely not vegan this glorious colourful dish most certainly is.

Our very own MoFo rounder-upper Andy has veganised a family recipe with Grandma Jane’s French Breakfast Puffs.
And in Andy’s own words “They really should be enjoyed right out of the oven. Sugar. Cinnamon. Butter-like substance. You can’t go wrong.”

And I’m not gonna argue with that!

Enjoy right out of the oven? OK!

So that’s it for the second week of MoFo 2010 folks – tomorrow will see our halfway stage WooHoo! Is the time just whizzing by or what?
This is your Sunday MoFo rounder-upper signing out.
Over to you MoFo’ers.

    The dish with potatoes and beets is a veganized version of a very popular Russian salad called “Herring under a coat”. It is typically made for celebrations such New Years day. I have seen another version of this where the fish was substituted with tofu and then layered with the usual potatoes, beets and mayo. It is actually really yummy.

  2. Thanks Lisa! Google wasn’t that far off then. :)

  3. Thanks for the mention Jeni! All of these recipes look delicious. Kudos to everyone out there in vegan blog land and there amazing recipes. My recipe list keeps getting bigger and bigger with all of the MoFo’ng going on this month.
