Vegan MoFo Survey
As I write this I have a turban squash and a pumpkin I need to cook... So stay tuned.
A survey just for some fun.
What is one food you thought you’d miss when you went vegan, but don’t?
What is a food or dish you wouldn’t touch as a child, but enjoy now?
There are so many foods I wouldn't touch as a child but enjoy now and I realize it is all in the way they were prepared. But strangely I hated tomatoes as a child. I sometimes wonder if I should try preparing fresh lima beans but I think I am still afraid from the awful boiled frozen ones my mother served so often.
What vegan dish or food you feel like you “should” like, but don’t?
Tempeh. I barely tolerate it.
What beverage do you consume the most of on any given day?
What dish are you “famous” for making or bringing to gatherings?
I am known for my deserts. Pies and cakes especially.
Do you have any self-imposed food rules (like no food touching on the plate or no nuts in sweets)?
No, not really. I try to not eat dinner past 8 pm.
What’s one food or dish you tend to eat too much of when you have it in your home?
Brussels Sprouts and any sweets
What ingredient or food do you prefer to make yourself despite it being widely available prepackaged?
What ingredient or food is worth spending the extra money to get “the good stuff”?
Are you much of a snacker? What are your favorite snacks?
Not really. Wildwood tofu.
What are your favorite vegan pizza toppings?
Nutritional yeast, eggplant, spinach, mushrooms.
What is your favorite vegetable? Fruit?
Probably brussels sprouts and cherries
What is the best salad dressing?
What is your favorite thing to put on toasted bread?
Just a bit of Earth Balance Spread and maybe some wheat germ
What kind of soup do you most often turn to on a chilly day or when you aren’t feeling your best?
Lentil or corn chowder
What is your favorite cupcake flavor? Frosting flavor?
Vanilla with strawberry frosting
What is your favorite kind of cookie?
I love baking simple chocolate chip cookies. But these shortbread cookies are delectable.
What is your most-loved “weeknight meal”?
Gardein sauted up with some brown rice and greens
What is one dish or food you enjoy, but can’t get anyone else in your household to eat?
Coconut pie and cherry pie. I miss making coconut and cherry pies but my DH can't stand coconut or cherries!
How long, in total, do you spend in the kitchen on an average day?
A couple of hours
