VMF 6-26: Survey Time (Again)

I've completed and posted some sort of vegan survey each time I have participated in Vegan MoFo, but it's always interesting to revisit the questions. This is most likely a survey I've already completed, but each year brings change and new perspectives, so surely there is no harm in going at it again.

I found these survey questions at Little Clover Salad; the answers are my own (obviously).

1. Favorite non-dairy milk?
unsweetened almond milk for cereal and standard baking, coconut milk for richer baked goods and homemade ice cream
2. What are the top 3 dishes/recipes you are planning to cook?
roasted seaweed snacks
sourdough pizza crust
beer floats (not cooked and made vegan, of course)

3. Topping of choice for popcorn?
just salt, sometimes a bit of nutritional yeast and/or roasted seaweed

4. Most disastrous recipe/meal failure?
It's a tie between using macadamia nut "cheese" for lasagne (flavor was overwhelming) and canned mock duck in stir-fried noodles (disgustingly rubbery texture).

5. Favorite pickled item?
Vietnamese pickled daikon and carrot

6. How do you organize your recipes?
Online recipes are bookmarked in folders, but my own are haphazardly scribbled on loose paper, if written down at all. At best, they're typed into a Google document as I'm cooking.

7. Compost, trash, or garbage disposal?
compost and recycle when applicable, with trash only when necessary, and garbage disposal when small plant material falls into the sink

8. If you were stranded on an island and could only bring 3 foods...what would they be (don't worry about how you'll cook them)?
rice, lentils, dinosaur kale

9. Fondest food memory from your childhood?
baking and decorating sugar cookies with my mom and older sister during the holiday season

10. Favorite vegan ice cream?
coconut milk-based ice cream, homemade or store-bought (particularly Luna & Larry's Coconut Bliss)
11. Most loved kitchen appliance?

12. Spice/herb you would die without?
red pepper flakes

13. Cookbook you have owned for the longest time?
Venturesome Vegetarian by J.M. Hirsch and Michelle Hirsch

14. Favorite flavor of jam/jelly?
blackberry jam

15. Favorite vegan recipe to serve to an omni friend?
some type of rustic bread
16. Seitan, tofu, or tempeh?
I like them all and probably eat tofu the most frequently, but I do really enjoy tempeh.

17. Favorite meal to cook (or time of day to cook)?
any time of day, any meal, as long as I have control of the kitchen and whatever I'm cooking :)

18. What is sitting on top of your refrigerator?
boxes of cereal, containers of dried beans and lentils, empty drink pitchers and food containers, liquor

19. Name 3 items in your freezer without looking.
sliced brown rice cakes, peeled ginger, blueberries

20. What's on your grocery list?
arrowroot powder, active dry yeast, cumin seeds

21. Name a recipe you'd love to veganize, but haven't yet.
marshmallows / marshmallow fluff

22. Food blog you read the most (besides Isa's because I know you check it everyday). Or maybe the top 3?
Vegansaurus! (not all about the food, but definitely list-worthy)
seitan is my motor
it will stop raining*

23. Favorite vegan candy/chocolate?
72% cocoa Trader Joe's Pound Plus bars

24. Most extravagant food item purchased lately?
It's been awhile since I've purchased anything I'd consider "extravagant," but I suppose bottled kombucha could count as something I purchase only on occasion.

25. What did you eat today?

Peanut Butter Banana Cinnamon Roll; roasted, peeled chestnuts; leftover dal and tofu saag over brown rice; wee slice of homemade apple pie
