Mission Burger and Super Salad

The Chefs: Abby, Laura, and Mission Burger

The Menu: Um, some of the biggest, most awesome veggie burgers we've ever had. Laura was kind enough to bring us all these fantastic treats from her neighborhood. The burgers themselves are an incredibly yummy mix of mushrooms, soy beans, sweet potatoes, and other bits and bobs, served on delicious bread with a wasabi aioli and avocado. Did she also bring crispy, salty fries? Yes, yes she did. Abby, representing the Vegan Yum Yum recipe quotient for today, made a gorgeous salad complete with Swiss chard, grated carrots, red quinoa, and the Smoky Miso Tofu and Sweet Miso Dressing from the book.

The Goods: We have a new winner! Congratulations to Lorena from yesterday's comments. Lorena, send us an email and we'll send your copy right out! For today's copy, we're going back to our roots. Well, kinda. Since Vegan Yum Yum was a blog before it was a book, and, you know, this here is a blog, tell us in the comments your (non-Café VegNews, of course) favorite blog.

Lynntastic said...

My favorite blog is Cranky Fitness (http://www.crankyfitness.com/). A good, funny, health-related blog :)

Mulan said...

I love Vegansaurus for their witty and hilarious style of writing and updates in my city. But I also love Vegandad for his down-to-earth recipes that are easy for beginners like myself to make and that the whole family enjoys.

Tessa R. said...

Vegansaurus! A great (and funny) resource for eating your way through San Francisco and beyond.

Emily said...

Vegan Dad. Great recipes, with a nice homey feel.

ulchabhán said...

I'm hopelessly addicted to Vegan Lunch Box and Feministing.

Vegyogini said...

My favorite blog (wow, this is an insanely difficult question!) is BitterSweet, authored by the the wonderful Hannah Kaminsky. :)

Beau Andrew said...

TheDiscerningBrute.com - anything and everything that the green vegan male needs to know. Joshua is the new vegan frontman for the movement.

Eats Well With Others is pretty great, but I might be a little biased. :)

Hands (and paws) down vegansaurus! That bitch is hilarious.

Sarah said...

I love the PPK's blog. I worship Isa :)

K.E.N. said...

you didn't say it had to be food related, right? my favorite blog is gofugyourself.com. i don't have a lot of personal fashion, but i love looking at it and i love what jessica and heather say about what celebrities are wearing. it's usually hilarious and i like that it's what they're wearing and not tearing down the people themselves. (i.e. perez hilton)

Laura said...

My favorite is Lets Get Sconed. Not only is the title kick-ass, but the food is too. It's fun to read about the different places she travels too.

Anonymous said...

Tooooooooooo many to mention but Bittersweet for food, Vegan.com for news and Vegansaurus to make me laugh.

That burger looks too good to be true!

@bradleyllew said...

vegansaurus!

Rasa said...

http://vegandad.blogspot.com/ hands down.

Josiane said...

Have Cake, Will Travel - I *love* Céline's creativity and sense of humor!

MacKenzie said...

I'm very into Design*Sponge and Apartment Therapy these days

Aparna said...

I'd say Bittersweet and Vegan Yum Yum (does this qualify?).

Morgyn said...

My latest favourite would have to be Baking Bites. :) Not vegan, but great stuff nonetheless.

Cyn said...

Happy Vegan Face! http://happyveganface.blogspot.com/

Eve said...

Wow, that's a toughie - I love Diet, Dessert, and Dogs a whole bunch, but there are so many greatgreat blogs - Happy Herbivore, VeganDad, VeganYumYum, etc, etc, etc. :)

shelby h.k. said...

I worship Sarah Kramer, so I'd have to go with http://www.govegan.net/, but I've recently gotten into Vegan Yum Yum after finding her on Twitter. LOVE that she represents Boston, where I live! Believe it or not, veganism is possible in a place where Clam Chowdah and Lobstah rule.

Tiffaney said...

If I absolutely have to pick a favorite (and this is hard because there are some many amazing vegan food blogs that I follow), I would have to say FatFreeVegan.

bagwasher said...

HeyitsBeth said...

Chrissy said...

I read a million blogs (or close to it) and my favorites change daily. Since I'm currently training for a half marathon, my new favorite is No Meat Athlete - lots of good advice about running on plants. :)

The Vegan Food Snob said...

Oh my stars that burger looks heavenly

The Vegan Food Snob said...

OH, and one of my fave blogs is 'Vegan. Awesome. Rad.' Yummy food but also witty writing and photo captions.

The Vegan Food Snob said...

Oops, I mean, "Awesome. Vegan. Rad."

My favourite non-food blog has to be dooce.com (I look forward to her posts every day). But for food blogs? I would have to say veganyumyum.com! Seriously, for her beautiful photos, video and delicious recipes. Runner up is Yeah that Vegan Shit.

Oh man. I should not have looked at this so early in the morning when I was STARVING! It looks unbelievable, and by the reviews, it IS! I will be making this as soon as I get to the grocery store! Thank you!
