vegan 100 in da house!

Posted Dec 03 2008 12:16am
Behold! The Vegan's 100 list compiled by the awesome Hannah of Bittersweet Blog fame. As you guys know, I'm nuts for lists, so the idea of compiling a list of the 100 foods that every vegan should eat at least once in their lifetime is quite intriguing to me. You can participate too! Just go to Hannah's blog for the original list, and then follow these directions:

1) Copy this list into your own blog, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten. (edit: I've also added a big X next to them for greater visibility)
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Post a comment here once you’ve finished and link your post back to this one.
5) Pass it on!

1. Natto I've heard tons of stories about this scary fermenty Japanese specialty, but I've never tried it. I have promised myself that I will once I get myself to Japan, though!
2. XGreen Smoothie Baby spinach and spirulina powder are my smoothie greening agents of choice.
3. XTofu Scramble Oh god yes. I like tofu scrambled any which way, any which day.
4. Haggis I have not tried vegan (or non-vegan!) haggis yet, but I'll be much closer to its birthplace in a couple of weeks, so who knows...?
5. Mangosteen I've come close! I've had dried mangosteens and bought some fresh ones in Paris which turned out to have gone bad. This fruit sounds so good by all descriptions, that I can't wait for a trip to southeast Asia, to finally try some fresh ones.
6. XCreme brulee I have had this in vegan form in a number of restaurants, but have yet to try making any at home.
7. XFondue Yes! Fondue is too fun not to have tried.
8. XMarmite/Vegemite I have tried both, and Vegemite is a kitchen staple in our house, to give a savory, "meaty" taste to lots of comforting dishes.
9. XBorscht Yes. Again, I've had yummy veggie borscht in restaurants, but have never tried it at home. Why not? This goes on this Winter's to-do list!
10. XBaba ghanoush Heavenly stuff. Fire-roasted eggplant, tahini, and plenty of garlic, what's not to love? We have this frequently at our house.
11. XNachos Yes! For Daiku and me, Friday nights are fun nights for dinner, which often means a big plate of nachos.
12. XAuthentic soba noodles I can't live without soba noodles. I have them about once a week.
13. XPB&J sandwich
14. XAloo gobi
