No eggs, see!

I am completely in love. With Vegan Brunch. Isa Chandra Moskowitz is a GENIUS!
Yesterday for Brunch Thursday (regular occurrence? yes please) I made her omelette. I slow fried some potatoes, onions, mushrooms and tomatoes, and was more than a little nervous as I began the omelette. I never liked egg omelettes, but decided that I had to give it a try. Plus since turning vegan, it seems that you can put pretty much anything in front of me, and as long as it's vegan I'll like it. Maybe I even like things purely because they are vegan!?

Anyway, I have no photographs as we were too excited/ hungry and had to just tuck into the omelette- but I assure you, it was brilliant and delicious, especially with a blog of ketchup and a glass of fresh orange juice.
Continuing the theme of egg-less egg dishes, I made broccoli quiche for lunch, also from Vegan Brunch. You need a couple of hours free for this dish, but it's totally worth it. Plus I'm pretty sure that the base is shortcrust pastry, so if you're short on time then buy it from the shops. But really, the longest part was waiting for it to chill, which is time I spent preparing the filling. It's a really amazing recipe, and the chopped cashews give it so much texture.

  2. I'd love to know the recipe for the vegan omelette. Much as I do love eggs (I am only veggy not vegan, and eggs are my fave) I do love tofu and ften want to use it more as it is so healthy. I'm trying to cook more tofu dishes - I made devilled tofu kebabs with tabouleh for dinner yesterday. Yous should share some vegan brunch recipes!

  4. I'll email you the recipe! I feel bad posting other people's recipes, as it might deter people from buying the book. But this omelette (baring in mind I never like egg-omelette) was YUM, and I think a lot like 'real' omelette.
