Vegan MoFo is this month! The one month out of the year where hundreds of bloggers, out of a sense of fun and camaraderie, decide to blog at least 20 times in one month about vegan food. Some supervegans (aka people) have their act together and post all the time, but we can rarely make a blog post appear once a month, much less twenty, so this is truly a challenge for us – and we are so not ready!
Last year, Dan and I put together a list of our Top 20 Austin Favorites. A veritable list of all the most amazing vegan pizza, corn dogs, burgers and other insanely delicious food in this town. We didn’t really have to search high and low to find these dishes, because uhhm, we eat out a lot, and already frequented these fine dining establishments. If you fry it, we will come. We did notice that the list was lacking a certain something – namely vegetables. We eat vegetables, don’t get us wrong, but if we’re going to go out of our way to get some, it’s probably not going to be a salad. That doesn’t mean there aren’t some killer salads in this town, and this month we’re going to find them, along with some amazing stir-frys, bowls, sushi and even some fruity desserts. We’re calling it Top 20: Eat Yo’ Veggies edition.
We love that there are people in this town already dedicated to eating their veggies: the 80/10/10’ers, Engine 2 folks, and raw foodies, but this list is probably not going to be up their alley. We’re hoping to create a list of veggie-ful options for those like us, who’d probably rather be eating corn dogs, but are also happy to eat a salad if it’s tasty and filling. We’ve got a great list started, and hope we surprise you with a few of our finds.
