Vegan Mofo Comfort Food: Biscuits and Gravy (and "Bacon" and Kale)
Well, good morning.
We have the day off work today because it is Remembrance Day in Canada. This means I've put off everything I needed to do this week until today thinking, well, I'll have plenty of time on Thursday to copy zines/sew/clean the house/make vegan fish and chips/read that book/pack for Montreal/work on that article. You can imagine how relaxing this day is shaping up to be.
But nothing gets done unless breakfast gets eaten, so I got up early to make us something delicious. What you see here is a plate of Herbed Drop Biscuits (from Vegan Brunch), tofu bacon (from my own recipe, except baked, not fried), oven home fries, pan-fried kale, and some miso gravy from this never-fail recipe that I use all the time. Vegan breakfast, for the win.
I'd never made these biscuits before and I have to say I was phenomenally impressed. I've had some pretty horrible biscuit baking disasters in the past, so I was not getting my hopes up for these. However, once again, Isa Chandra Moskovitz rules. I am always delighted by how well her recipes work out. She's the queen of vegan cooking for a reason.
As I alluded to in my list of things to do today, I am going to Montreal tomorrow to table at Expozine with my non-food related writing projects. If you are in Montreal, do come to say hi! And if you wanted to bring me a snack, that would probably be cool, too. I am going to try my level best to keep up the Mofo daily blogging, even with all of the traveling and tabling and friend visiting. Who am I to back away from a challenge?
