I found this over at Vegan Bits, and thought it would be a good kicking off place to find some new things to try. Note that I have eaten many of these things in their non-veganized versions, but I’m not counting that.

Here’s the basic premise:

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 – I had a really yummy tofu scramble on 4/4 at the Spiral Diner. Mmmm. Tofu migas. I loved it, and my tofu-hating sister took a bite, and she liked it as well.
4. Haggis – I’ve seen vegetarian haggis in cans at the British shop. I won’t say never, but highly doubt I’ll ever buy any.
5. Mangosteen
6. Creme brulee
7. Fondue
8. Marmite/Vegemite
9. Borscht
