Vegan Waffles and Pancakes!

Some days, you just feel like waffles. I like waffles, pancakes, scones, biscuits, etc. at any time of the day. But, I never seem to have time during the week to make anything other than toast, smoothies or cereal for breakfast. So, weeknights or Sundays are usually the only time I have to enjoy these tasty items.

I recently purchased Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s new cookbook, Vegan Brunch: Homestyle Recipes Worth Waking Up For-From Asparagus Omelets to Pumpkin Pancakes. This cookbook has just about anything you can think of for brunch and more! All sorts of scrambles from tofu to tempeh to tortillas. Omelets and  all kinds of frittatas, plus perogi. I love perogi! Growing up in Canada, there are so many different kinds of perogi at the local supermarket, that you could spend hours trying to decide what you want. I will definitely have to make these.  There is so much in this cookbook from entrees – savory to sweet; sides which include vegan sausage recipes; breads, muffins, biscuits, scones, bagels and rolls and all the toppings you can think of to accompany the aforementioned. This cookbook is worth every penny!

I have been working my way through the book, starting with waffles. I never had the pleasure of waffles as a kid, so I thought it would be fun to try to make these. I made the cornbread waffles first. They were crispy, light and filling. One is all you need! In my hands, the recipe made 4 very large Belgian waffles.

Next I made the Buckwheat Waffles, that the TDs and TG love. They are stick to your ribs – filling waffles. I love the nutty taste that the buckwheat lends to the flavor of the waffles.

Then I made the “Perfect Pancakes” for TG on Father’s Day. They were awesome! TG loved them. They were lightly sweetened with maple syrup with a hint of cinnamon.

Perfect Pancakes and they were!

I have so many more recipes I want to try. The bagels, english muffins, cinnamon rolls, crepes and sausages plus don’t forget the perogi; just a few that I want to make. I really like this cookbook, and it is so comprehensive that I feel this is not just for brunch!

Enjoy cooking and the food you create!  Have some fun with your animal friends!
