To kick off VeganMoFo with a twist, I was skipping along the Interwebs and found this fabuloso idea at Vegan Lunch Box

I'd like to incorporate some of the Vegan 100 into VeganMoFo and I'd encourage my fellow foodie VeganMoFoian's (and there are legions of you, I just know it) to try with me. I'll keep posting updates as I get closer to bolding and underlining each of the hundred.

Vegan Hundred. I love the idea of challenging foodies to try as many new, classicly delicious and unusual foods as they can. So I give to you: the vegan's 100. One-hundred foods that every vegan (or any curious foodie) must try at least once. Check out the list and details on how you can participate in this foodie adventure...

The Challenge: Just as the omnivore list does, I challenge you to re-post this list and participate in the challenge! Cross out or italicize all the foods you would never eat, bold foods you have tried and update your list as you participate in trying all the foods on my Vegan's 100 list. Then if you'd like, post a link to your list in my comments section so others can see how you are doing. I tried to stay true to the original omnivore 100 by leaving on a few of the vegan food items on Andrew's list. However, since most of the foods were not vegan, there was a lot of space to fill! My criteria for food items were that they had to be either a unique whole food (like a lychee) or a notably stand-out-delicious way to prepare a common food (like scrambled tofu).

The Vegan's Hundred

Here’s what I want you to do:

1) Copy this list into your blog or social networking site profile, including these instructions.

2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.

3) Cross out or italicize any items that you would never consider eating.

4) Optional extra: Post a comment on this post linking to your results.

I hope you will join this vegan foodie tasting adventure.

Post the link to your list in the comments-if you have any questions, leave them in the comments as well!
