Vegan Brunch

I have just a quick post of a couple more recipes I’ve tried from Vegan Brunch. My ‘Horns are playing and if they win they go to the College World Series!

I made the Curry Cauliflower Frittata for Chase, using some beautiful orange cauliflower from the farmers market that I roasted.


It smelled wonderful as it baked. Here it is out of the oven.


I don’t have a picture of a slice, because it didn’t hold together. Chase didn’t care. He said he would just call it a scramble and enjoy it that way. I’ve noticed several other posts where these frittatas haven’t held together. When I made it, I thought it seemed dry and there was no liquid or binder at all in any of the frittata recipes. Maybe my tofu was squeezed too dry. Have you run into this problem? Or are you adding some liquid to your mixture? I would love to make another one for Chase, but I want it to turn out right.


The other brunch item I made was the Potato Spinach Squares. I added some onion and sundried tomatoes to my batch. This baked up beautifully.


These squares got RAVE reviews and I thought they were super delicious.



Isn’t it pretty?

I’ll be around to visit after the game! Hook’em ‘Horns!

Those all look good, especially the spinach squares. My son made a "Vegan Brunch" tofu scramble today and after we ate it he said, "shouldn't you have taken a picture?"

mmmm....spinach potato squares look so tasty! i always love how often you use cauliflower. i really like it, although only buy it occasionally. i think it's seriously underrated!

Too bad the frittata didn't stay together, I bet it still tasted good though. The potato squares look delicious, they are next on my list to try!
