why are french omelettes made with only one egg?
3-egg pesto veggie omelette with rainbow tomato salad
sadly the purple basil did not make purple-colored pesto like i had hoped. but it was even more delicious than the regular basil batch. i blended the leaves with garlic, pine nuts, olive oil, salt, and nutritional yeast for the cheese-y flavor.
the oyster plate belonged to my mom's mom. i misremembered it as a deviled egg plate and asked my mom to dig it out for me. it works perfectly for eggs too though.
this was my first time eating bread pudding. i refused to eat it as a kid because i thought it involved liquified bread. i've always had serious issues with certain food textures, and liquified bread is about the worst thing i can imagine. but bread pudding is delicious!
this recipe to make it veg. i sauteed tofurkey slices to stand in for the bacon, and used daiya cheese for the topping. also, i pre-cooked the hash browns rather than just thawing them. this is serious comfort food.
i prefer using egg replacer for quickbread. i have such a good vegan quickbread recipe worked out that there's no need to mess with it, but i tried it with eggs anyway.
