Vegan MoFo Day 1 – Happy World Vegan Day!

It seems like just yesterday it was Halloween…oh, wait, it was!  Even though we spent a quiet Halloween at home, I couldn’t resist making some festive orange and black food from the Halloween Menu in Party Vegan. 

Since it was just the two of us, I modified the Black Olive Tapenade with Carrot Sticks and Orange Bell Pepper Strips, omitting the bell pepper, and spooning tapenade directly onto diagonally sliced carrots.  The extra tapenade went into a tiny pumpkin.  This is a fun and easy appetizer that really looks cute on the table. Here’s another view: 

For the rest of my Halloween menu, see this post where you will also find my recipe for Black Bean and Butternut Chili.

I’m excited to participate in Vegan Mofo (month of food) for the first time.  I think it’s a great idea to show the world how much variety there is in what vegans eat, especially during World Vegan month.  During this month I’ll be posting recipes, book and product reviews, and of course, lots of photos.

During Vegan MoFo, I’ll also be doing a cookbook giveaway each Tuesday, beginning Nov 9, which will be announced the Wednesday before. Each giveaway will be the usual “comment to enter” style. The winner will be selected at random each week and the giveaways are open to everyone.  See this Wednesday’s post for your first chance to enter!

Happy World Vegan Day and Happy Vegan Mofo 2010!
