Breakfast + Lunch = Brunch
Brunch for Dinner = Drunch!
Well, I got my grubby little paws on Isa's new book, "Vegan Brunch," and got right to work.
First up, I made the omlets, with roasted asparagus. Yumola! I got to put my fancy new black salt to use, and that stuff is really crazy. It's mined from the earth, not the sea, and is actually pinkish instead of black. And it really does smell like eggs. Weird! These omlets were easy and delicious and filling. Don't they look totally perfect?! Of course, I am a crazy freak for roasted asparagus, so I hardly even glanced at the other suggested fillings.
The next night we had the Raised Waffles with strawberries and raspberries in the batter. These were so unbelievably good. Mr. Vegan Eats & Treats declared them The Best Waffles He's Ever Had, and has been asking for a repeat performance every since. That should be easy to arrange. I used half whole wheat pastry flour, because I am that way, and they were totally delicious. I definitely recommend this recipe!
Because I am a grown up, I am allowed to make myself waffles for dinner whenever I please. However, also because I am a grown up, I feel compelled to make a veggie along with my waffles. So I whipped up a double batch of her Chorizo sausages and made a big bunch of garlickly spinach. A delicious combo! Only later did I see that there is actually a recipe in the book for Greens and Sausage, although Isa suggests using collards rather than spinach. It was a delicious dinner.
Next up, the Puttanesca Tofu Scramble... I'll keep you posted!
