It’s Vegan MoFo time!

Happy first day of Vegan MoFo (aka Vegan Month of Food)!

My theme this year is a month of Tofu Cookery by Louise Hagler. I don’t have the fancy 25th Anniversary edition of the book, but a reprinting of the original 1982 version.

I’m intrigued by this book – it really was a game changer in the world of vegan cooking. As someone who went vegan in early 2008, a lot of the recipes seem bizarre and hippie-ish to me. Others sound like something you’d see in a cookbook today. So here I go, exploring the recipes, seeing what is delicious and what isn’t.

Originally I was going to attempt to make 31 recipes from the book in order to post every single day in October. I always set lofty goals such as this for MoFo and it always ends with me burning out halfway through the month and giving up. So this year I’m going to set my goal at 25 posts. If I go over, great! If I don’t, no big deal.

I can’t wait – massive amounts of tofu here I come!

    I went vegan in 1990, and this book was awesome!!!

  3. I’ve heard of this book but have never layed eyes on it. Looking forward to seeing what you post! I was going to set my goal to post all 31 days as well but then I remembered the burnout from last year, so I’m skipping weekends this go around, unless for some reason I feel ambitious. Good luck!

  4. I can’t wait to see what you make! I’m always looking for new things to do with tofu.

  5. I have seen several references to inspiring, tried-and-true recipes from Tofu Cookery and am stoked to follow what you make this month and will likely find a copy for me-self.

  6. Any recipes for fermented tofu in there?
