Yeah I think tomato sauce means passata.

I usually blend up canned tomatoes for "tomato sauce"; we have the same confusing issue here. If you are super careful you can put your stick blender right into the can.
But I bet the pureed toms would be great, I love those scones.

I always use passata in recipes calling for tomato sauce.

I've made a number of recipes from this awesome book, all good.
Was going to try the "omelet" next, but it says to use silken tofu and NOT the vacuum packed one.
Why?
It's the only silken tofu I can get in this area.
Cheers.

So I made the scones, and the basic tofu scramble! Our tomato donor was immensely pleased with his scones, and Boyfriend declared the scramble to be his new favourite ever. Well done, Vegan Brunch.

I just made Italian Party Sausage, and then ran around my kitchen shouting "oh my god! oh my god!" (It is a very rare and extreme moment of excitement that causes me to call out to any of the various omniscient leaders of any of the various religions.)

I'm about to have them with Shitake Dill Frittata and Baked Cajun French Fries.

This cookbook, all of them really (I own them all), they're life-changing. Again I bow to you, Isa Chandra, your recipes make the world a better place.

I just made these for the first time for breakfast. They are so easy and the title totally fits. I was in a chocolate mood, so I added chocolate chips to the batter, but, honestly, I think they would have been better as is.

I really need to cook from this book more. I've had it for a while and I've only made the peanut butter waffles (which were amazing).

Isa has put many recipes up on this site so you can try them out but yes, we do encourage support of the author.
Here are the free recipes
http://www.theppk.com/recipes/

And a selection of breakfast ideas, many of which are in the book

I so adore this cookbook. I think it is my favorite. I think if they keep cranking out cookbooks the way they are we might get a "greatest hits"?

pinecone if you just want to chat about brunch foods in general you could start a new brunch thread in the 'food & cooking in general' section.

When I made my Shitake Dill Frittata last weekend (holy deliciousness!), I tried to double the recipe, but it was a bit underdone inside (compared to my previous experience with Asparagus Sun Dried Tomato Frittata, which was wow amaZing!). Any advice about doubling this? Like, "don't"? My pie plate* is 10" and I'm using the advice from Vegan Cupcakes TOTW** and have an oven thermometer.

In other news, I am so anxious to make more sausage this weekend (I'm still blown away by this recipe!), and this time I will not make the critical error of sharing them with my upstairs neighbor. Giving away one of my 4 precious sausages is a decision that has haunted me all week. Oh hey... what about doubling this recipe? And what do you think about freezing them? And since we're talking, I'd pretty much always like to know what I can double and what I can freeze.

Things I might like to freeze: Quinoa Puttanesca, Chipotle Chili with Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts, vodka sauce, everything.

Thanks for continuing to improve my quality of life, you rule!

You can definitely both double and freeze the sausages, I do both things very regularly.

Sweet, thanks!

And I'm making Sausage and Peppers this weekend, which I haven't had in about 100 years. :drooling:

Isa and other vegan cookbook authors have been very generous about sharing recipes on their blogs & websites. I don't see the problem here.

I seriously use this cookbook every week. It is amazing!
I LOVE Isa's perfect pancake recipe. I have tried many many other pancake recipes, and NOTHING even comes close. Everyone loves it - and I am a pancake fiend who knows what she is talking about :)

The Chelsea Waffle recipe is also awesome - my 2nd favourite waffle recipe of all time, and much requested by my 7 year old. :) Never sticks, a snap to make

The banana flapjacks are also amazing, as are the lemon poppyseed muffins. I also LOVE the zucchini muffins which are healthy but crazy good. Love the pierogis...and you know what...there are a lot of recipes I haven't even made as I keep returning to the ones that I really really like from before! (sign of a good cookbook!)

I made the beer-battered tofu for the first time last week and it's by far my favourite new thing I've made in ages. I want to make it every Friday night, it's like the perfect not-takeaway end of the week meal.

I urgently need chickpea flour now. It's like a full fledged 5 alarm chickpea flour emergency!
