Vida Vegan Con-test: Burrito Bonanza!


Hi there!

This is the post in which I announce my contest for a ticket to the Sold-Out-First Ever-International-Vegan-Blogging-Conference, Vida Vegan Con.

If you missed the chance to win Get Sconed and Vegtastic Voyage’s contests, don’t fret, I have one Golden Ticket left. This ticket will gain you admittance to the entire weekend’s conference + off-site events (<– more info on THAT coming soon!) Airfare and accommodation are not included.

 Vida Vegan Con, happening THIS August in Portland, is going to be pretty damn sweet, pardon my French. With two full days of jam-packed workshops, panels and talks featuring your favorite bloggers, authors and friends, this conference is the most exciting thing to happen all year, according to me. And I should know, because I consider myself an expert in exciting things.

I can’t compete with an awesome song-off or a delightful self-portrait-in-food, so I had to really delve deep for my contest. I wanted it to be representative of vegan food + blogging, plus incorporate something that’s representative of Epicurious Vegan. And I wanted it be FUN!

What is fun and awesome and bloggable and yelpable and my favorite thing ever?

That’s easy.



Whether it’s a burrito, a taco, or another burrito, it’s clear that I am fully addicted to anything wrapped in a tortilla.

So without further ado, I announce:

The Epicurious Vegan Bodacious Burrito Bonanza Contest! (Wahoo!)

Make a burrito.

Blog about it.

Link your post in my comments section.

Sounds simple, right?

It is.

Make a burrito— the best burrito ever. It can be whatever you want (a dessert burrito or a burrito the size of your head, for example). Be creative!

Fine Print, writ large:

  • You must make it yourself. No gussying up a Gordita. (That would be sweet though. I would totally give you street cred points for that.)
  • It has to be vegan (Duh.)
  • Your burrito doesn’t have to contain any traditional ingredients—want to use something other than a tortilla or beans? Go for it. And seriously, get creative.

Link to you post in the comments. I will pick a winner on June 25th. Submissions must be received by midnight Portland-time on June 24th.

I don’t have specific criteria for winning. A combination of YOUR votes and my over-zealous burrito-loving opinion will be the deciding factor. I’ll post links on my Facebook page and look for your input. (Like Epicurious Vegan here to keep up to date.)

If you have questions or if I’ve forgotten to mention something important due to a drool-inducing burrito overload excitement, shoot me an email or leave a comment. I will try to answer you as soon as possible.


Hahahahahahhahahaha! I found this while googling ‘Burrito’. It’s a Kitten Burrito in a Spinach Tortilla. I can’t stop laughing!  source.

This is a silly contest, meant to be fun for everyone involved, so get burrito-making and get blogging! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    Dear Epicurious,

    I am so excited to enter this contest and I am working on my entry but I have some questions. Should I link my blog to your blog’s comment section or your facebook’s comment section? Who will vote on the vegan burrito entry? Will that be you? If I enter my blog on June 23 or 24th, will that still be enough time to acquire votes?
    Thanks so much in advance for taking time to answer my questions. Off to making some yummy burritos.

    Thanks Epicurious Vegan. One more question. Where do people vote? Can I solicit votes from my friends/family/readers?

    • Janessa

    My favorite burrito is the one that’s right in front of me at the moment. The other day it was my Mixed Red Bean, Brown Rice and Potato Burrito. Here’s the link to the post ttp:// I hope that you like it.

    A good burrito ought to inspire others to get rolling.

      That link is not right. Here it is:

    I’ve been trying to come up with something for days! I’m not sure where it finally came from, but this magical concoction popped into my head this morning and I knew I had to make it. And eat it. :)
