Vegan Omelet

There’s nothing like a slow weekend morning. I really enjoy waking up leisurely and spending the first part of my morning making coffee and a nutritious and special breakfast for hubby and me.

Vegetable Quiche

Breakfast and brunch can be tricky to a new vegan. Besides select cereals and toast, there doesn’t seem like a lot of vegan options at first glance. Especially if you go out to a non-vegan restaurant, it might feel like you can only get the half of grapefruit and a plain toasted bagel (I’ve done…
