Halloween and we’re back!

Hi all!

It has been a while. Who knew hav­ing a baby would be so all encom­pass­ing?! Par­ents knew! LOL.  But not to worry! Oy Vegan is back and we’re ready to share recipes, ideas and lots of other cool stuff with you.

The high hol­i­days are over and we hope every­one had a very mean­ing­ful and happy hol­i­day season.

With Hal­loween com­ing up tomor­row, I fig­ured I would share what I’m going to be mak­ing . Our fam­ily is com­ing over and I’m plan­ning to make some spooky vegan eats and treats.

Five Hal­loween Eats and Treats recipes!

  1. Fall themed sugar cook­ies with nat­u­rally coloured icing. I’ll be using Chloe Coscarelli’s sugar cookie recipe from her Chloe’s Vegan Desserts cook­book. I’ll also be mak­ing cookie icing and using car­rot juice to colour it! I read about this on a few dif­fer­ent sites, the names of which escape me at the moment. If you google nat­ural food colour­ing you’re sure to find a lot. img_9676
  2. Oy Vegan Choco-Ghoulie Bars of course. I’ve had a spe­cial request for these!image
  3. Spooky Spi­der Ched­dar Cheese Ball. I’m super excited to make this! I have my black sesame seeds ready and my cashews soaking.spider-lead-image-1200x747
  4. Spooky scary mini hal­loween piz­zas. I just think these are the cutest. pizza10-1200x748
  5. Ket­tle corn. Sweet and salty pop­corn always hits the spot!unknown-1

I’ll def­i­nitely post pics of the fin­ished prod­ucts! And my baby in his mon­key cos­tume. Happy Hall-Oy-Ween everyone!

Thought I would also share this Hal­loween PETA video. I think it’s from last year. Enjoy!

First veJEWtarian Meeting– A Success!

This past Tues­day evening, a group of peo­ple met at Sadie’s Diner for a deli­cious din­ner and some lively dis­cus­sion. We talked about our veg­gie jour­neys, that is, our rea­sons for becom­ing vegan/vegetarian which lead to plenty of lively debate and dis­cus­sion. We dis­cussed health, the envi­ron­ment and ani­mal wel­fare issues.We were even vis­ited by Rabbi Aaron Levy of Toronto’s Makom.

On the sub­way on Wednes­day morn­ing, I was pleas­antly sur­prised to see that the front cover of 24H news­pa­per fea­tured Megan Park of The Secret Life of the Amer­i­can Teenager unveil­ing a new Peta anti-fur ad at Yonge and Dundas.


So timely con­sid­er­ing our dis­cus­sion Tuesday!

It was a great evening and I look for­ward to more!
