My son’s girlfriend is a vegetarian. Christmas morning the kids came over for brunch. I made this and it was delicious! I added a layer of shredded hash browns over the bread. Also sauteed the onion, green pepper and garlic in olive oil. I swore I would never eat tofu. I used soft tofu in this and it was great!

I've been vegan since February of 2005, and I was vegetarian for almost a year before that. I love cooking vegan food. People always ask me, "What do you eat?" or, "Doesn't being vegan make it harder to cook?" Nope! In fact, I've found that going vegan opened up a whole new world of cooking for me. I've tried ingredients I otherwise never would have heard of, and found vegan products that are even better than their non-vegan counterparts. I love creating new dishes and recipezaar has been a wealth of inspiration. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
