The Vegan's 100

Originally posted by Hannah at Bittersweet, and currently taking the vegan blog-iverse by storm, is the Vegan's 100--a list of 100 food items every vegan should eat before they die. There are plenty of vegan food items I expect I wouldn't love, but I am a firm believer in trying everything twice, so I refuse to say I'll never consider eating anything--unless it has animal products in it, but that's not the point of this list! Here's how to play:

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
2. Green Smoothie
3. Tofu Scramble
4. Haggis
5. Mangosteen--the queen of all fruit, it really is worth seeking out because it is good!
6. Creme brulee
7. Fondue
8. Marmite/Vegemite--love.
9. Borscht
10. Baba ghanoush
11. Nachos
12. Authentic soba noodles
13. PB&J sandwich
14. Aloo gobi
15. Taco from a street cart
16. Boba Tea
17. Black truffle
18. Fruit wine made from something other than grapes--the beauty of living in North Queensland is the tropical fruit wineries which offer free tastings at local markets.
19. Gyoza
20. Vanilla ice cream
21. Heirloom tomatoes
22. Fresh wild berries
23. Ceviche
24. Rice and beans
25. Knish
26. Raw scotch bonnet pepper
27. Dulce de leche
28. Caviar
29. Baklava
30. Pate
31. Wasabi peas--I actually think wasabi peas are very overrated.
32. Chowder in a sourdough bowl
33. Mango lassi
34. Sauerkraut
35. Root beer float
36. Mulled cider
37. Scones with buttery spread and jam
38. Vodka jelly--I'm assuming this is the Australian definition of Jelly (jello), and not Jam's cousin.
39. Gumbo
40. Fast food french fries
41. Raw Brownies
42. Fresh Garbanzo Beans
43. Dahl

I'm hooked on reading everyone's list myself ;0) Wow looks like you nearly everything on the list already (except for the ones that are not readily available here!)

Hahaha, I tried natto before, they are kinda like okra (the gooey-ness) but worse!! Oooo yes!! Vegemite = L.O.V.E, so good with Nuttelex! Yum!!

One last thing - you tried durians before - do you like them?! :0)
