Vegan Brunch - Homestyle Recipes Worth Waking Up For — from Asparagus Omelets to Pumpkin Pancakes: Isa Chandra Moskowitz's vegan cookbook is full of easy healthy recipes which will bring awesomeness to all your brunches.
The only problem you'll have with her cookbook is deciding which mouth watering recipes to make for your next vegan brunch.
For brunch newbies, Isa makes things easy by providing handy guides to stocking your brunch pantry, and ensuring your brunch runs smoothly. Plus you'll be in such a good mood, laughing your head off at her outrageous humor, that you won't worry about a thing.
For those who habitually substitute ingredients, or tend to get anal about unimportant details, Moskowitz also has some good advice:
Use exactly the kind of tofu she calls for and don't worry too much about shaping the vegan sausage just so since it will snap into shape as it cooks "because this recipe is awesome."
To test Vegan Brunch and also because I'm crazy, I decided to make five of the recipes at once to serve to my family: From Left to Right - Diner Home Fries, Classic Broccoli Quiche, Chorizo Sausage, and East Coast Coffee Cake. Because it was Monday night, not Sunday morning, we had sparkling orange juice instead of Pink Grapefruit Mimosas or Coffee.
By the way, what would you call a brunch served in the evening? Drunch? Bupper?
Fortunately for crazy me and my hungry family, all the recipes were easy and Isa provided clear and detailed directions. Everything was delicious and full of brunchy goodness. I'm already planning my next vegan brunch, with Tofu Scramble - my new best friend.
Make some Tofu Scramble (great anytime), then go get your own copy of Vegan Brunch. Don't worry if you aren't a brunch person. You will be once you've read this wonderful collection of wit, wisdom and brunch recipes, from Isa Chandra Moskowitz.
