Brunch was great though! I am looking forward to this Sunday! We've decided to make a set Brunch Menu. The buffet tables are set up with a green salad, hummus, corn and black bean salad, coleslaw, pasta salad, blueberry muffins, homemade bread with organic earth balance,(remember.. all of the food is organic!) carrot cake, lemon poppyseed cake and death by chocolate cake, coffee, tea or hot chocolate plus your choice of 1 entree. Unfortunately, I only took a bad pic of the Huevos Rancheros.. Cafe Indigo style or Melody style hehe.. chipotle citrus black beans, spiced seitan sauted with peppers and onions in homemade ranchero sauce, lemon/garlic/rosemary potatoes, pico, non-hydrogenated tofutti sour cream and avocado.... and 2 corn tortillas. Next week, we will be upping the portions as people ate everything on their plates.
I don't have a pic of the cornmeal panckaes, but here is Paul manning the grill. The recipe was passed down in his family and they veganized it! We served the pancaked with 2 of my homemade sausage patties and the garlic/lemon/rosemary potatoes. People LOVED them!
Here's the buffet table set up. Pasta Salad, Hummus, Black Bean and Corn salad.. and of course, bread!
Organic, homemade bread.. and mini blueberry muffins.
Green Salad, Coleslaw, Pasta Salad
pasta sald, corn and black bean salad
Lemon poppyseed, Chocolate, Carrot cake.. (the best cakes I've ever had in my life..no bias.. just the truth!)
Getting back to the brunch specifics... the entree choices were:
Tofu Scramble with sausages and potatoes
Thai Tofu, Broccoli and Sweet Potato Curry over Basmati
We've decided that for the near future, we will be serving a set menu of all of the above, plus a Reuben like sandwich containing thinly sliced seitan... we're still working out the details of the sandiwch.. but I KNOW it will be delicious. Fortunately, my seitans have taken off there... and we are serving a delicious grilled seitan wrap on the menu now everyday as well as a grilled "cheez" with my homemade cheez. I'm not a fan of seitan, but the way I prepare it is absolutely delicious and I love it!
Anyway.... that's the update from here. I have a day off tomorrow, so I have to replenish my home with food.. so I'm sure I'll get another post in.. if not tomorrow, then Saturday.
