So apparently the Tofu Challenge turned out to be kind of an April Fool’s joke on my part, since I never did manage to create a tofu recipe (though I did cook with tofu *three whole times*, so at least I achieved that much in my pathway towards vegetarian enlightenment).
But it’s a new month, which means it’s time for a new challenge, and since my singing diary tells me that Easter (and laryngitis) is fast approaching…
The APril 2014 theme is Easter Inspirations
(because God is love, and food is love, and I don’t think I’d better continue on to the logical conclusion of that thought or nobody will ever let me sing in their church again, but meanwhile my brain has moved on and is considering an entirely new series of heresies about transubstantiation and this is what happens when I’m doing too much singing and not enough sleeping.)
Anyway. The alert among you may have noticed that we did this – or something very like it – last year. And you would be absolutely right! But it was heaps of fun, so we’re doing it again, only more so. Because I want an excuse for vegan hot cross buns.
This challenge is a very broad – not to say silly – challenge. What with Easter approaching, I initially thought about an egg-based challenge… but this seemed a little unfair on the vegans among you. On the other hand, chocolate is probably a little bit too easy, especially if dairy and eggs are allowed.
So here’s the deal. You can include any dish that…
- Features eggs, or is egg-based (bonus points for anything that looks at all Easter Egg like by the time you are done with it)
- Features eggplant. Because that totally counts as eggs for vegans. Bonus points if you stuff the eggplant, thus preserving the egg shape.
- Is chocolatey and vegan (bonus points for vegan Easter Eggs)
- Any traditional Easter food, veganised! This is totally my Vegan Hot Cross Bun Clause, and I’m not even going to try to disguise it.
- Any recipe that uses up all those hard boiled eggs you dyed because it’s really fun to dye hard boiled eggs only now you are stuck with two dozen hard boiled eggs and nobody in your family eats them except you. No, of course this has never happened to me, why would you think it had?
- Anything else that you can convince me looks like an egg. Nobody picked this last year, but I’m holding out grand hopes nonetheless, because I have no idea what looks like an egg, but would love to find out.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
