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.

Portabello Sammiches and Oven-Baked Onion Rings

We have been working through the newest cookbook in our repertoire, Appetite for Reduction by Isa Chandra Moskowitz.  I was totally sold on the book when I saw it included a recipe for oven-baked onion rings.  And there’s hardly any fat in them, which is a nice bonus.  I love onion rings and was skeptical at first that these would live up to my expectations, but they certainly did!  The recipe is posted online here, but I still recommend picking up the book because it’s full of great recipes (which I’m sure we’ll be posting a lot more of).

Our sandwiches consisted of Balsamic Glazed Portabellos, vegenaise, shredded carrot, baby spinach and sriracha hot sauce on fresh sandwich rolls.  It was so good.

PS:  We’re working on finding a solution for the unavoidable taking pictures of food after all the natural daylight is done for the day!  Sandwiches shouldn’t be so moody…
