Vegan Brunch Ideas?

sarawithanh | Apr 21, 2009 09:45 AM

Hello there!

My non-vegan friend and I (vegan) have begun holding vegan cookoffs - it was her idea! We have a "brunch" themed cookoff coming up and I'm stumped for good brunch ideas that don't contain too many scary ingredients as my hubby and her bf, both meat eaters are our judges :)

Yes I'm aware Isa's new brunch cookbook is due to be released soon - I pre-ordered it but I'm afraid we might have the brunch off BEFORE i receive my copy of the book!

That being said I have a few categories of items needed:

Side Dish

I'm planning on testing Isa's chesapeake tempeh cakes for the appetizer category next weekend.

I am also planning to test Notella Crepes as the dessert feture next weekend as well - both recipes are in Veganomicon.

I was contemplating biscuits & gravy from vegan with a vengeance...not sure thogh - hubby kind of turned his nose up. as a meat eater he LOVES bob evans biscuits and sausage gravy so maybe I shouldnt try to make a "vegan" version??

Any ideas for Beverage, Entree, Side Dish???? I appreciate any and all suggestions! I really want to win!

Beverages need to be semi -original if possible. I know the normal breakfast beverages include mimosas, bellinis, bloody marys, smoothies - I was shooting for something alcoholic but different! Ideas welcome please!!!
