Blood Sangria

Vegan MoFo: It's that time of year again! If you don't know what's up, allow me to give you a brief overview: short for the Vegan Month of Food, Vegan MoFo is an annual blogging event about all things vegan. Participants are given daily prompts and then post about it. If you need more info check out the MoFo website and get hip (click here and then come back). Today’s prompt: Veganise a dish from a Sci-Fi/Fantasy World.

In case you didn't know Sci-Fi/Fantasy is my preferred book and movie genre. There are so many options for today's MoFo prompt: I thought about making popplers from Futurama or Spice from Dune. I even thought about making a vegan human since humans are the main course for Audrey II in Little Shop of Horrors. You don't even want to know how weird and dark that thought train was. In the end it was that very weird thought train that brought us to blood. Human blood (and occasional rat blood) is the meal that satiates Lestat and Louis in Anne Rice's Interview with a Vampire.

The book and the movie take place mostly in New Orleans and both feature a lot of gorgeous feasts that the vampires prepare to attract humans for consumption. I played around with creating some of their cajun delicacies for this post but that's just not what the prompt called for so here we are: Vegan Blood.

ICYMI,  I shared an easy and quick-ish recipe for Boiled Peanuts for Forrest Gump. Boiled Peanuts are a Southern tradition and it bums me all the way out that you never get to see Forrest enjoying them in the movie. 

Can't get enough? I'm all over the place, let's follow each other (cause that doesn't sound creepy, at all!) InstagramTwitterFacebook, and Pinterest.  Nothing makes me heart more full than when people let me know they've tried my recipes. If you wanna help make my heart happy you can hashtag thisveganlyfe or @ ambereatsveg, comment on the post, post on my wall, tweet at me; whichever socials you feel comfy with.

All the love,
