A bunch of brunch!

  • Jun 4, 2009
I got my copy of Vegan Brunch as a birthday present a few days ago, but I couldn't stop reading it and using it long enough to write a review! It's no secret that I am a huge fan of Isa, I have all her cookbooks to date. This is one of her best books yet. (Vegan Cupcakes will always be my favorite).

Isa takes the time to create a variety of recipes, both sweet and savory. Everything from omelets and egg scrambles to waffles, pancakes, and crapes. Nothing is left behind in Isa's Brunch tome. There are not only a variety of tastes presented here, but this cook caters to people of any cooking ability - from the beginner to the experienced baker/cook. If there is a more exotic ingredient, Isa explains it and more often than not, offers a substitute that is more common.

Brunch and breakfast are often confusing to new vegans who worry that they will starve without eggs and cow milk. If you know someone who is a vegan, new or old, this would make a perfect present! Just make sure they don't already have a copy or two.

Also, those who are not currently vegan will find that vegan recipes are very healthy alternatives to eggs and heavy cream. This book gives you a way to enjoy your omelets and waffles without guilt!

Highly recommended for EVERYONE!
