The L.A. Times Test Kitchen, reporting for Vegan Month of Food duty

October 2, 2009 |  6:41 pm

Quinoa Isa, you can count us in.

Noted vegan chef Isa Chandra Moskowitz issues a challenge each October to her fellow food bloggers: Blog as much as you can about vegan fare, for the entire month.

Now, Vegan Month of Food has taken on a life of its own with hundreds of blogs participating. (You can read more here at Moskowitz's blog.)

Well, we can't call the Daily Dish a vegan blog. But the L.A. Times' Test Kitchen turns out plenty of vegetarian -- and vegan! -- recipes. So, for the month of October, we're joining Moskowitz's challenge by publishing one recipe a day. (We're going to do our best to stick with the vegan theme, but we reserve the right to hide behind a vegetarian recipe if we get desperate enough!)

Yesterday we did Lentil salad with tomatoes, zucchini and arugula. Today, it's Quinoa salad with shiitakes, fennel and cashews.

Bon Appetit!
