Creamy Onion-Walnut-Chive Stuffed Crêpes

In preparation for Vegan Mofo, we bought a crêpe pan!  To christen it, we decided on making a wonderful savoury crêpes stuffed with this amazing filling from the cookbook A Vegan Taste of Eastern Europe.  These turned out surprisingly amazing!  Caramelized onions, chopped walnuts and chives, smothered in a cheesy sauce.  Yes, please!  Served with a simple side of steamed broccoli to balance the richness a bit.

There will be more crêpes comin’ your way on NVL!  Vegan Mofo is on for the month of October.  It’s really amazing!  Hundreds of vegan bloggers from around the globe vow to blog each day for the entire month of October.  It’s an immensely inspiring, challenging and fun time just as a reader – there are literally hundreds of new entries to read each day.  This will be our first year participating as bloggers, and we are really excited just looking at all the things we have planned for the month.  I highly recommend you set yourself up with the RSS feed which will keep all the MoFo-participating blogs neatly in one place for you to read.  I think that should be coming from MoFo headquarters in the next few days.  Stay tuned, it’s going to get busy up in here.

Product Review: Tofurky Pizza

We were at our local Farmer’s Market on Saturday (Western Fair, for those in the area) and went to the organic stall to pick up our usual bag of Daiya vegan cheese.  I noticed in the freezer that they had the Tofurky brand vegan pizzas made with daiya cheese, so naturally I had to get one.  We brought it home and had it for lunch with a simple spinach and strawberry salad with a balsamic/oil dressing.
Okay, so it pretty much tastes like a McCain’s frozen pizza or whatever, which is I assume what they’re going for.  It was quite good.  Not something I’d make a regular part of my diet for the obvious reason that it’s frozen pizza, but it certainly is awesome to have options – sometimes you just don’t want to cook and want something premade.  I get that.  Serve it with a simple salad and call it lunch or dinner.  
Oh, and I am continually impressed with how daiya melts!  Vegan cheese has come along way in the last couple years…you could serve this pizza to anyone and I bet they wouldn’t know it was soy cheese and meat.
