National Cordon Bleu Day? …yeah, I had to look this one up.
According to the Wikipedia definition, Cordon Bleu is “a breaded cutlet dish of meat (traditionally veal, but pork or chicken are common) pounded thin and wrapped around a slice of ham (or prosciutto) and a slice of cheese (such as Swiss), breaded, and then pan fried or baked…There are many variations on the recipe, all of which involve a cutlet, cheese, and cured pork.”
That’s just a screaming mess of evil.
Turns out there are plenty of brave vegans out there who have made this one cruelty-free, although each one does a totally different version. Take your pick…

According to the Rules of the Interwebs, you shouldn’t post someone else’s entire recipe, only part of it with a link to the rest, unless you’ve changed the recipe up bigtime.
And for those of us who don’t really groove on faux meats, it’s also National Soy Foods Month…yay! Since I’ve got a bag of superyumful edamame in the freezer, I’m going with this one… Mean Green Edamame Soy Burger with Spicy Slaw from Kathy at Healthy. Happy. Life.
Which would you order in a vegan restaurant…Vegan Cordon Bleu or Vegan Soy Burger?
