The Vegan 100

I found this through a post on BlogHer. I absolutely accept. Truthfully, I haven't had all of these dishes in their vegan form (Pre Vegan? PV?) but I thought I would still include them.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it:

1) Copy this list into your own blog, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Post a comment here once you’ve finished and link your post back to this one.
5) Pass it on!

1. Natto - had this at a great breakfast place in Andersonville

  1. How/why make vegan haggis? isn't it made of hearts and livers and guts stuffed in some other guts?
