Chipotle Breakfast Sausages

The magic of vegan cooking is you can now enter the world of making so many delicious goodies at home from start to finish.

I know vegan sausages are sold everywhere these days, and I certainly love their convenience, but when I serve these sausages to people and tell them I make the sausages in my very own kitchen, something really cool happens. Their eyes do this weird thing that says "wait...really?". It's that moment of noticing that first, they've never slowed down to think of how one actually begins to make a sausage (whether vegan or not), and then, they start wondering what the actual "meat" component is (the answer in this case: seitan!).

Today I'll teach you how to make this version of my homemade sausages, which uses chipotle chilies in adobo, and lots of delicious spices to make these extra flavorful. I recommend making a ton, freezing them, and taking them out as you wish to eat them, sautéing them right before serving. You can make these for brunch, but also for lunch or dinner. They're so hearty and satisfying, perfect as a high protein vegan meal, and full of flavor.

Leek, Mushroom and Fig Tart

Just in time for Thanksgiving, and with the Holiday season in front of us, I thought it was time to teach you how to make the most gorgeous tart ever! First, you have the flakiest crust, one that will make any sweet pie totally jealous. Then you have a delicious savory and creamy cashew filling with perfectly charred oyster mushrooms, leeks and chives. Then you get to top that beauty with the brightest and sweetest figs. Trust me, everyone will "ooh" and "ahh" over this one, and it's perfect for when you want to take a vegan dish to your holiday gatherings, or serve it as part of your holiday meal. It's also secretly the perfect fancy recipe for an elegant brunch or lunch, since it's a little twist on a quiche. Yup! you can have vegan quiche y'all!

The Fluffiest Blueberry Pancakes

Anyone who grew up on pancakes like me, knows that not all pancakes are created equal. Sure, drizzle any old pancake with lots of maple syrup and it will taste good, but there's an art form to the perfect pancake.

It should be tall, round, perfectly cooked through, golden brown, and especially fluffy and pillowy. There are so many tricks to always getting perfect pancakes, they have to do with the ratios in the recipe itself, with the amount of leavener used, but especially with letting the batter rest, the temperature of the pan or griddle and cooking them properly (spoiler alert: it might be exactly the opposite to what you've previously thought was pancake-making gospel!).

Our FREE Vegan Breakfast and Brunch Cooking Course is Live!

It's finally time to share what we've been working on, teasing you about, recipe testing for, filming for, editing for... 

Drumroll please!

Our brand new breakfast and brunch classics course is here!

It also happens to be a FREE vegan cooking course for you to start enjoying and watching right away. 

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and it was also the one I struggled with the most when I went vegan because I just didn't know how to substitute my eggs and bacon, and yes, I was a total eggs, sausage, lumberjack style breakfast eater before then. Blame it on the fact that as a kid I was allergic to milk, so the whole cereal concept was lost at my house. It was bacon with a side of bacon... all the way.

FROM OUR KITCHEN TABLE

The Nomadic Vegan, homemade seitan sausages with carbonara and vegan brezel

It's that time of the week again in which I get to share our favorite vegan eats and treats from the past week, straight from our kitchen table. This week was especially delicious and fun since I got to meet my favorite vegan travel blogger Wendy Werneth from The Nomadic Vegan. We've become friends over the past few years in the blogging world, but we had never actually met! It was so much fun and exciting to get to meet her in person this weekend, as she stopped by for a flash visit from Geneva. Wendy is a truly amazing person and as sweet as she sounds in her blog. She's travelled to over 97 countries, speaks 6 languages and is married to a fellow teacher who also happens to be one of our most recent My Brownble members. He's cooking up a storm with all of our recipes, and Wendy is such a lucky lady having Nick cook for her. You'll see all the photos below and of course more amazing grub from our very own kitchen to yours. Let's do this thing!
