Vegan MoFo VII: Green Eggs and Hamlet


Another MoFo is upon us!  Muahahaha!  This year, I decided to come back in full effect and tear the roof off this mother like never before. 4 weeks. 30 days.  My themes be changing on the weekly, yo.  Week 1 is all about my nerdery.  I will be doing recipes that make me geek out.  Today is brought to you by my love of reading and rap, sucka.  As LeVar Burton would say, "Read a book, homie."

I stumbled upon the awesomeness that is Epic Rap Battles of History a couple of years ago.  For me, absolutely nothing beats Dr. Seuss vs. Shakespeare, though, so I made some food to reflect that.


Because we're dealing with Shakespeare, I wasn't about to be using some food coloring up in herre. I had to up my game and make something super adult. Check it:

Spinach Quiche
Green Eggs and Hamlet Menu
Spinach Quiche w/ Wilted Caribbean Spinach, Chimichurri, and Sauteed Chorizo
Ophelia's Hibiscus Mimosa

I used the broccoli quiche recipe from Vegan Brunch.  Replaced the broccoli with 10 oz of frozen spinach and threw that bad boy in a tart pan, shawty.

Spinach Quiche, Wilted Caribbean Spinach, Chimichurri, Chorizo
The mimosa was super simple.  Take a hibiscus flower soaking in syrup, add juice of your choice, pour on the sparkling wine!

Drown your sorrows in this mimosa...with a forking flower in it
Seuss and Shakespeare.  Always keeping it gangsta.  Happy MoFoing, y'all!

Bah ha ha, when I first discovered Epic Rap Battles, I think I spent the next 4 hours of my life watching one after the other.
