Banana Crepe

I’ll be serving up awesome dishes from the menu of my imaginary vegan B&B all month long.

It’s here! Vegan MoFo 2012. Let the onslaught of recipe awesomeness begin.

I’ve have participated in Vegan MoFo for the past few years, and like a woman with a toddler, somehow I have forgotten the sleepless nights, the constant mess and the anxiety of not being able to live up to my commitment…so, I’m ready to do it all again.

This year I actually came up with a theme. Nothing as fantastic as pairing my daily meals with horror films but something a little more me.

Over decades of being vegan, I’ve often heard “well, if you cooked for me I would be vegan too”. Without creating a massive food distribution empire, I knew I could never deliver on that request. Instead, for the month of October, I’m opening a fantasy vegan B&B and you will all be my guests.

Each day I will share the recipes I would use to entice you back year after year.

This week, we’re starting with breakfast. Which makes sense because at my B&B it is all about starting the day right, with a whole lot of happy.

Could you really keep from smiling as I served this to you? You’d still be curled up in bed. I’d bring a book, an extra cozy blanket and a steamy cup of tea or coffee. Plus I’d say a lot of nice things like, “wow, you’re looking so refreshed. The vegan food really agrees with you. You’re absolutely glowing this morning”.

For you, I’d serve the crepes warm from my dehydrator (yes, that was the gentle hum you heard last night while you were falling asleep). The banana ice cream is cold but the hot chocolate drizzle balances it all out.

Bon Appetit my guest. Have a beautiful day.

    My mom always says the same thing–if you cooked for me, I’d be vegan. At least I’ve gotten her interested in preparing more vegan meals on her own.

    I certainly wouldn’t need any convincing to eat this, and enjoy Paris! The weather there must be lovely this time of year.

    Ever since we tried out this awesome raw chocolate hazelnut spread, my partner has been begging me to make him raw crepes. This recipe is giving me the excuse to finally grant his wish 😉

    Have an amazing time in Paris! Can’t wait to see pictures/read the recap.

      Thank you! I enjoyed a wonderful first day in Paris. It is a spectacular city. I hope your partner enjoyes the crepes.

    Oh, good lord, I would never leave your b&b. It would surely get pricy, but it would be well worth it! (By the way, I loved this line – “…and like a woman with a toddler, somehow I have forgotten the sleepless nights, the constant mess and the anxiety of not being able to live up to my commitment…so, I’m ready to do it all again.” Absolutely true!

      Thank you Cadry. I so wish I could fill a whole hotel with my favourite vegan friends – wait…that’s VVC! Until then we’ll have to dream about long chats over crepes :)

    Ohh, gorgeous. And I’d love to book a stay at the B&B — I’m thinking early November would be the perfect time for a getaway :)

    This is exactly how my time living with you is going to be, right? Right. Except that I want to help you make it all, too. xoxo
