The Vegan's Hundred

The Vegan's 100 list was compiled by Hannah of Bittersweet . I found out about it from Bazu of Where's the Revolution a favorite Vegan blog I love to visit.

Hannah states " News travels pretty fast in the blogosphere, and the latest craze that’s been showing up on food blogs far and wide has been The Omnivore’s Hundred, a list of 100 foods that all omnivores should eat at some point in their lives. Well, I like the idea, but obviously that sort of thing just doesn’t fly with me. Instead, I present to you my revised list, The Vegan’s Hundred instead! Everything here is either naturally free of animal products or can be veganized, and just like the original, these foods vary from the every day to extraordinary, delectable and disgusting. They’re simply all of the things that, in my opinion, any vegan foodie should definitely sink their teeth into at least once."

Your mission, should you choose to accept it:

1) Copy this list into your own blog, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten. (I have put mine in green)
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Post a comment at Bittersweet once you’ve finished and link your post back to it.
5) Pass it on!

You are pretty darn cultured when it comes to cuisine!

Waterrose said...

Ok, I'm in...I love number 100!

Rural Vegan said...

This is such a fun list, I've never even heard of some of them - like potato milk!

Earth Mother said...

Vegan Haggis??? Is that even possible? My toes curl just thinking of this stuff.

You must try yellow watermelon.. So sweet and delicious!

Marion said...

Potato Milk? I've got to look that one up!

Jackie said...

Thanks for commenting everyone :) has a potato milk recipe, under milk substitutes, plus names of commercial brands. Very useful site and blog for dairy alternative recipes.

Yes there is Vegan haggis and it doesn't appeal to me anymore than the meat one did in my meat eating days long ago....I think you must be Scottish to appreciate it LOL. Bryanna a favorite Vegan chef, has a recipe, visit her blog for it .

Wish we did have yellow watermelons.

LOL urban vegan, think inquisitive rather than cultured. I try anything once, vegan of course, then decide whether to ever eat it again. Doubt I will ever try tofurky though as it would make me cry thinking of the real magnificent , intelligent bird and the cruel way it meets it's fate.

Fruity said...

Your country produces quite a fair bit of fruits. I'm sure you will be able to find some of those too


This is making me very aware that I have a long way to go. Great list!
