Yes! I made them. It took a long time (resting, rising). But so worth it.

I also adore this book - it was my first Vegan cookbook (our Chapters was out of V'Con at the time). I love the sausages in the summer, I've made almost all of the muffin recipes, several of the scones, the banana flapjacks at least twice a month (we're really bad at eating bananas and they're always brown, but it's gotten to the point where we almost avoid eating them when they're actually good to eat so we can have pancakes!), the broccoli quiche and the mushroom leak pie. Today I'm making the pumpkin pancakes (with the ginger cranberry sauce) and tomorrow I'm trying my hand at tofu scramble (with mushrooms and green onions) all as part of MoFo.

I have never made anything out of this book that I wouldn't make again in a heartbeat. Om nom.

I probably use VB more than any other cookbook. Not just for brunch but for dinner too! There are so many things I like from this book, and I highly recommend putting the navy bean gravy over cornbread waffles. so good!

This is my favourite cookbook.
Love love love the mushroom, beans and leeks quiche, the sausages, the lemon poppy seeds muffins, the tofu scramble, the omlettes, the lemon cashew crepes (I swear I cried the first time I bit into one), and basically everything else.
Only one thing I didn't like too much, the chorizo thingy, too spicy.

This is my new favorite cook book, I made the bagels from the recipe in the book and they came out so so. They weren't nice and fluffy and they never got toasty brown. Any suggestions I really want to have another go at them.

The muffins are soooooo good. And the broccoli quiche. And the tempeh crab cakes. And the English muffins. I adore VB.

I eat the scrambled tempeh almost every wheek. I have it memorized. I want to make the scones and coffee cake next, just have to get some jam and I'm ready.

I make the roasted potatoes with variations all the time, it's a great basic recipe. The courico tacos with grilled pineapple salsa was probably my favorite thing I've made from VB. And the tempeh sausage pastry puffs are really easy to make while also being really impressive.

Oh the courico tacos. I totally forgot about those. I love them! I'm also a big fan of the benny and the quiches. I tested for this book and made just about everything. I can't think of anything I didn't like. For something different and awesome try the rissotto!

There is not enough tempeh crab cake love in this thread. They are the best. Every time I make them, people (omnivores and vegans alike) request the recipe.

This is a recipe I've been meaning to try since I got the book!

If only I could find some tempeh, I'd make the crab cakes straight away!

I too love the crabcakes, but I make 'em with chickpeas because we don't always have tempeh on hand.

stuff I have made and loved:

the chocolate raspberry muffins (I made them for Valentine's Day and brought them to work. people really liked them!)
lemon poppyseed muffins
gingerbread waffles (I made them last Christmas and served them with pomegranate molasses and soy whipped cream and they were great!)
pesto scramble with grape tomatoes

I am making the scones next. Probably the apple-rosemary variation.

Omnis seem to really enjoy the navy bean gravy. My boyfriend made it for his family on Thanksgiving, and more people ate that than the meat gravy right beside it.

We love this book!!! My husband loves the cinnamon rolls and English muffins. I also love the tomato rosemary scones and herb spread - super yum. We've made a lot from this book and have not been disappointed!

I just got VB for Hanukkah and made the pumpkin pancakes yesterday. So good, and since there aren't many (okay, any) restaurants near me that serve vegan pancakes, I think I enjoyed them even more. I think an omelette might be next on my list to make, but this thread really has me wanting the broccoli quiche.

this is indeed a great cookbook! i really love that there is always something new to try and it has expanded my breakfast repertoire.
things i've made and love:
curried scrambled tofu with cabbage and caraway,
sesame scrambled tofu with greens and yams (its helping me to love yams!),
classic broccoli quiche,
swiss chard frittata,
perfect pancakes are indeed perfect,
corn bread waffles,
pb waffles,
chesapeake tempeh cakes (only way i really enjoy tempeh),
pumpkin bran muffins,
east coast coffee cake with raspberry jam swirl is amazing!,
choc chip scones,
and whole berry sauce with mixed berries! theres so much more to try!
things that i just didn't care for:
scrambled tortillas - didn't care for the sauce and it wasn't at all what i was expecting,
caramelized vidalia onion quiche - too sweet for me and i realized that i have a thing against nutmeg,
polenta rancheros - again, didn't care for the sauce,
pumpkin french toast - turned out terrible for me,
potato spinach squares - too much oregano, and too dry for me,
tomato rosemary scones - my partner loved em though,

i can't wait to try the omelets, curico tacos, crepes, bagels, as well as many other amazing sounding recipes in this book!

Vegan Brunch is totally one of those cookbooks where I skeptically make something that I never thought I much liked previous versions of (quiche, fritatta, scrambles, omelets, coffee cake, tempeh crab cakes...) and then I discover that they are the best thing EVER. I love that book so hard.

This thread reminds me that I haven't used this cookbook in a while...that and the fact that I just found a forgotten jar of poppy seeds in my spice cabinet, which means I'll be making lemon poppyseed muffins soon...or more accurately, I will be making lemon poppyseed muffins for the kids and maybe eating one as a treat.

So far, I've made:

Lemon Poppyseed Muffins (obviously)
the berry muffins whose name I don't know offhand
Polenta Rancheros - very good and I always have the ingredients on hand.
Omelets - my nonstick pots are not nonsticky enough, so they didn't turn out like they were supposed to. They tasted good, though!
Mom's Morning Casserole - because my kids are sometimes funny about tempeh, I am the only one in the house who liked it. I may try this again at some point because I've recently gotten them to eat crumbled tempeh in other things.
Scrambled Tortillas - Epic fail. I think I messed up somewhere, but no one in the house liked them, even me, and I will eat just about anything vegan except okra, beets, and peaches.
Curried Cabbage and Caraway Seed Scrambled Tofu - I really need to make this again soon, even though I will probably be the only one in the house to eat much of it. Of course, I did accidentally use a hotter variety of curry powder last time, which didn't go over too well with my kids...
Rosemary-Tomato Scones - I did not use fresh rosemary at the time, but they were still good. Now that I have procured a metric fuckton of rosemary, it's time to make them again (but I will probably try them with spelt flour since it's a little easier on me than wheat).
Scrambled Tempeh - two of my favorite things in the world are tempeh and red peppers, so how can you go wrong here?

So, I'm thinking of making the tofu omelets real soon. Perhaps tomorrow morning after I stop at the Asian grocery tonight. Question for y'all: If you've tried it with and without black salt, does the former compare at all? I live walking distance from Devon Ave., so I'm thinking of checking out some stores there for some (WF had it, but for $15... I hope the ones in the Indian groceries are cheaper!). I'm just not sure if I want to go out in the cold yet.

Aaaand I have made the following while at school:
- Roasted potatoes
- Cinnamon rolls
- Bakery style muffins
- Navy bean gravy
- Stuffed poblanos

Not much, but now that I have a fairly well-stocked kitchen always at hand, I'll be able to make more. I know for sure that next up on my list are: cinnamon rolls again, diner home fries, tofu omelets (if these are good, I'll make 'em a staple breakfast), quiche/frittatas, apple cinnamon raised waffles (when was the last time I had waffles?!), banana rabanada, stuffed crepes, cherry sage sausages, and more. My favorite two types of things to eat have always been breakfast food and East Asian cuisine, so this book is perfect for half of that fulfillment.
