I will admit that I have only made the peanut butter waffles so far, but I've only had it since Tuesday and today is Thursday. They were wonderful! They were like having big and fluffy peanut butter cookies for breakfast. Can you get any more indulgent than that? Yummy!
Vegan Brunch features savory recipes such as tofu scramble, frittatas, polenta ranchers, Tofu Benny and perogies. Of the savory dishes I tried the tofu scramble which was delicious, the texture was almost creamy which I loved and really had the texture of scrambled eggs (or at least what I remember-it's been awhile). I also made the Cornbread Waffles which I loved because some days you just don't want to have a sweet waffle and this was a great savory waffle. Lastly I made the Tofu Benny which I loved! The hollandaise was delicious and the Diner Homefries were nice and crispy.
To be honest I have yet to try any of the sweet brunch options and am actually much more of a savory breakfast person. I actually did have plans to make the Banana Rabanada (Brazilian French Toast) this morning but my husband forgot the baguette on his desk at work. I guess I'll make it another day!
Some other dishes I have made and loved where the Samosa Mashed Potato Pancakes, Chesapeake Tempeh Cakes and the Mushroom Gravy. I made the Cheaspeake Tempeh Cakes for some of my omni friends and they couldn't get enough of them. I ate the mushroom gravy this morning with my scramble and am using the leftovers in my greenbean casserole.
Over all this is a great book that I would recommend to anyone who loves breakfast. This book is great because although many cookbooks have breakfast sections none have the focus and devotion to breakfast items like Vegan Brunch.
Here's what I've tried so far and LOVED:
Chesapeake Tempeh Cakes - these are crazy good and will turn anyone into a tempeh lover
Omelets - You'll have to seek out black salt for these, but trust me, it is worth it!
Scrambled Tortillas - a perfectly spicy Mexican breakfast with potatoes and corn tortillas
Classic Broccoli Quiche - the secret ingredient is cashews, which make it uber creamy and delicious
Gingerbread Waffles - easy and perfect for a Sunday morning
Lemon Pepper Tofu - quick and easy, it's my go-to tofu recipe
Blueberry Ginger Spelt Muffins - a sweet hearty muffin you'll want to take to work with you everyday
Tomato Rosemary Scones - taste really fancy, but only take a few minutes to throw together.
I promise you will love these, too!
The first thing we made were waffles, which had the most amazing texture. I even used the batter to make pancakes, and they turned out to be the fluffiest pancakes I have ever had. I then had to use our wedding money to invest in a great waffle iron, because now I have a reason.
The buckwheat pancakes were the best pancakes either of us have ever had (my husband makes pancakes all the time, so we have a lot of samples to compare them to).
THE SCONES... sooo good. Amazing really. My husband made them using apples, and they were out of this world. They didn't even have that weird beany taste that all gluten free baked items seem to have.
We got the book toward the end of last month and have used it 5 times. That's pretty good for us! Anyway, Isa's awesome.
