“Yo, someone should really start a vegan blog of Mexican food” “You know what would be rad? A vegan Mexican food blog” “Yo, I wonder why no one has done a vegan Mexican food blog?”
That’s me. Yup.
Complaining Conversing with various friends over the years. “You should make one!” They’d Say.
“Yeah, maybe one day I will.”
I mean, there does seem to be a dearth of vegan Mexican food bloggery on the web.
I doubt la Lily Tomlin had vegan food blogging in mind when she verbalized what is really under all our noses. I am that somebody. And, really, I am. Nothing is stopping me. Nothing was stopping me. Como dijo Cesar Chavez: Si Se Puede.
So, I’m like get down James Brown.
So. Yeah. This is my blog. My vegan food blog. My Vegan Mexican Food blog to be exact. Okay, well, mostly. Tengo un chingo de recipes. A cadre of cookery that build upon simple recipes; that in turn give way to new recipes. Like Mexican food Inception. (Except there’s no folding buildings or that homegirl from Juno)
And. I’m sure I’ll throw in some other recipes along the way. How can I not? The way I see it – if it’s vegan then it’s fair game que no? And, it’s nice to mix it up every now and again.
At the core, the food featured on Vegicano will be deeply rooted in the essence of comida Mexicana; utilzing both the flavors and influence of my heritage as the motor. And that’s what this is really about. Showcasing the wonderful cuisine of Mexico from a vegan perspective. That’s my goal. That’s what I’m setting out to do. I hope you’ll join me on my journey.
