Cookbook Challenge Week 3 - Vegan Brunch!

So far, this week's challenge has been a favorite of mine. I tackled omelets and crepes and had yummy Hollandaise, something I haven't had since turning vegan. Isa is a goddess.

#1 - Tofu BennysWhen I was still vegetarian, eggs benedict were one of my favorite-ist dishes. I loved the way the sauce saturated everything. This recipe definitely brought back a lot of happy breakfast memories :-)

#2 - Omelet with Roasted Asparagus and Miso-Tahini SauceIn the book, Isa tells us to search out black salt to give this a more eggy taste. Well, I'm lazy and this was still very good! It was almost like a thick, savory crepe. I thought the sauce was amazing, Jeff thought the asparagus was amazing. Definite win!

#3 - Crepe with Lemon Cashew Cream and Berry Sauce
If you couldn't tell, I made these somewhat late at please excuse the awful photo. These were actually pretty easy and oh-so-rich. Probably not the best choice for dinner but then again, I'll eat cake for breakfast. I used blackberries that I picked that morning at my mom's house and I think the sauce will be a definite staple from here on out.

This week we're reviewing Yellow Rose Recipes by Joanna Vaught. I love this book; she makes it so easy to make filling and delicious food that really hits the spot. I'm actually doing 4 recipes this time around, I had such a hard time deciding!

I still haven't tried the Vegan Brunch crepe recipe - I even bought a crepe pan...I think I'm going to make crepes right now - thanks for the inspiration!

Vegan Brunch is the BEST! I've raved about it quite frequently on my blog. I love the omelets the most and you are right, no need for the special salt, they tasted amazing without it.
