Easter brunch goody goody yum yums (as in no animals were killed to make these Easter treats!)


“Bacon,” Potato, and Green Onion Frittata!



1/4 cup olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
4-5 green onions, chopped with the green and white parts separated
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 medium potatoes, shredded
2 tsp. salt, divided
1/2 tsp. pepper, divided
2 lb. firm tofu
2-3 Tbsp. soy sauce, to taste
4 Tbsp. nutritional yeast (optional)
2-3 Tbsp. faux bacon bits (try Bacos)

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and the white part of the green onions and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the garlic and heat for another 30 seconds.

Increase the heat to medium-high and add the potatoes, 1 tsp. of the salt, and 1/4 tsp. of the pepper.

Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, flipping the potatoes regularly until they are well-browned.

Blend the remaining salt and pepper, the tofu, soy sauce, and nutritional yeast in a food processor until they are creamy. Fold in the faux bacon bits, the green part of the green onions, and the fried potatoes and pour the mixture into a large, oiled pie or tart pan. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until the center is firm.


Allow the frittata to cool for 10 minutes then invert it onto a serving plate.

Breakfast Crème Brûlée! (you may want to increase this recipe fourfold – at the very least! – for Easter Brunch!)


This recipe comes from Jerry James Stone of CookingStoned.tv.


2 cups water
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup unsweetened berries
1/4 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup dried berries
1/4 cup maple syrup (optional)
2 Tbsp. brown sugar

Bring the water to a boil and add in the oats and salt. Reduce to a low simmer and cook for 5 minutes.

Remove from the heat and let sit covered for 2 minutes.

Divide the unsweetened berries (we used frozen as fresh are not in season yet here), nuts, dried berries, and oatmeal between two ramekins.

Top with the maple syrup, followed by the brown sugar.

Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and put in the broiler on high for about 5 minutes, making sure that the crème brûlée doesn’t burn.

Serve warm and enjoy!
