Today's Vegan MoFo Prompt has to do with traditional local foods. Since I'm originally from the Buffalo, NY, area - which is the birth place of Buffalo Wings - I really wasn't sure what to post for today. I knew I HAD to post about a local product and favorite FRANKS HOT SAUCE and that is where the beginning of my thought process started with this one.
Sure there are vegan alternatives to look into for vegan Buffalo Wings such as this one...and they aren't bad...considering I'm not much for fake meats. I have tried this product a time or two and will consume in a pinch.
But I have been making my own versions of Buffalo Sauce with some success!
And a recipe I am very proud of...Vegan Cauliflower Bites...which is a much better version that we can make at home with plant based ingredients!
So...if I am working on a local traditional dish for the prompt I guess this would be it. I no longer reside in the Buffalo area but visit as often as I can. Where I live now there aren't any real traditional dishes for the area to speak of. I even tried to search Erie, PA because I am fairly close to that city and still don't know what I would consider to be native to Erie as far as foods are concerned (other than Smith's Hot Dogs and NO those aren't vegan).
In other news...I thought I would share a new product with you today. Check these out! I just gnawed on them and they didn't last long! They are from Awesome Foods based out of Bridgeport, PA, and raw and vegan. I got them from my recent shipment from The Raw Food World and I can't wait to check out more of their products soon!
