A Vegan MoFo Blogger Survey

Blog #11 for the vegan MoFo 2010 challenge!

Many of the other VeganMoFo bloggers have posted answers to a MoFo survey and I thought that I would do the same. It is kind of fun!

What is one food you thought you'd miss when you went vegan, but don't?
Cheese. After learning about all of the horrid treatment that dairy cows go through, it is hard to miss cheese. I can't even picture eating it without gagging.

What is a food or dish that you wouldn't touch as a child, but enjoy now?
I liked a lot of foods as a kid, but the one thing I disliked was kidney beans. I have learned to really like them as an adult.

What vegan food or dish do you feel like you should like but you don't?
This is a tough one, I like most all vegan dishes. The one thing I keep trying to like is sweet potatoes. I am getting much better at it and have been eating a lot of them recently. Yay for fall!

What beverage do you consume the most of each day?
Water and a bit of espresso in the morning!

What dish are you famous for bringing to gatherings?
Cupcakes. Since becoming gf I have found it more difficult, but I'm not giving up. I made killer vegan gf cupcakes last night for a gathering.

Do you have any self-imposed food rules (like no food touching on the plate or no nuts in sweets)?
Not at all. I don't mind my food touching or mixing. I am pretty weird about texture though.

What's one food or dish that you eat too much off when it's in your home?
Mac n Cheeze!

What ingredient or food do you prefer to make yourself despite it being widely available repackaged?
Vegetable broth. It is such a rip off in the store when it is virtually free to make at home and a lot healthier b/c I can control the ingredients.

What ingredient or food is worth spending extra money on to get the good stuff?
Organic berries and fair trade, organic coffee

Are you much of a snacker? What are your favorite snacks?
Ohh heck yah I am! I snack way too much. I love tortilla chips and salsa, gf pretzels, pickles, olives.

What are your favorite vegan pizza toppings?
Diaya cheese, pineapple, onion, and pickled hot pepper rings. It is the best combo!

What's your favorite fruit and vegetable?
Raspberries and spinach

What is the best salad dressing?
I adore goddess dressing. I am so happy to have found a gf version.

What is your favorite thing to put on toasted bread?
Soy cream cheese and tomatoes

What kind of soup do you turn to on a chilly day or when you don't feel well?

What is your favorite cupcake and icing flavor?
I have several. Chocolate cake with peanut butter icing, pumpkin chocolate cupcakes with cinnamon drizzle.

What is your favorite type of cookie?
Oatmeal raisin

What is your most-loved weeknight meal?
I don't have a favorite. I crave variety. We are always eating new things.

What is one food or dish you enjoy but can't get anyone else in your house to eat?
I can't think of any. John likes pretty much everything.

How long on average do you spend in the kitchen each day?
About 1.5 to 2 hours.

There was my survey! I would love to read yours too.
