Bountiful Vegan Brunches

Veggie Frittata with Salsa Verde


This quick frittata is one of the most requested dishes in my household. It can easily have countless variations by using seasonal vegetables from your local farmer’s market in place of the ones listed. Try shredded kale instead of asparagus and zucchini in place of the carrot for a fun twist or try adding minced red pepper for a dash of color.  Recipe and photo contributed by Allyson Kramer, from Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats Around the World* ©2013 Fair Winds Press, reprinted by permission. more→

“Tofuna” Salad or Sandwich Spread

"Tofuna" - tuna-style tofu sandwich spread

This sandwich spread is so simple, yet every time I make it, it disappears quickly. Even tofu skeptics love it. Since all you really need for this is the first three ingredients, it hardly qualifies as a recipe, and you won’t even need to consult this after you make it once. The last two ingredients, though entirely optional, are highly recommended. If I’m having guests for lunch or brunch on weekends, I often make a batch of this as an extra, no matter what else I’m serving. Photos by Evan Atlas. more→

Berry-licious Vegan Stuffed French Toast

Vegan Berry stuffed french toast by helyn dunnWhat to make for a late morning brunch… too cold for a smoothie, not really up for oatmeal… haven’t had french toast for a while so I thought, why not make it a little different and a lot special…

There are three components to this fantastic, healthy dish: the french toast itself, the blueberry “cream” cheese stuffing and the blueberry syrup… of course you can use any or all of them separately for other yummy, nutrient-dense meals.

Skillet Potato and Tempeh Hash

Skillet Potato Tempeh hash

A hearty vegan spin on a “meaty” classic, this skillet hash of potatoes and high-protein tempeh (embellished with bell pepper and kale) is as good served as a quick dinner as it is an offbeat and hearty breakfast. For breakfast or brunch, serve with fruit; add whole-grain bread for a heartier meal. For a quick dinner, serve with an abundant tossed salad, whole grain bread, and orange slices. Photos by Evan Atlas. more→

Vegan Broccoli Frittata

Vegan Broccoli Frittata

Nothing says brunch like a veggie-filled baked frittata. Silken tofu replaces the eggs traditionally used in this kind of dish. Pair this with a little fresh fruit and you have a delicious, filling brunch. Recipe is contributed by Alicia C.
