I almost started jumping up and down the other day when I saw this post on Peace o’ Pie’s blog. Vegan Brunch…must try. And try I did. Gorged myself is actually more like it. Here is a recap:
Clockwise from top left, you see: curried tofu, tempeh bacon, smoky mac n cheese, sweet potato home fries, a paprika zucchini potato pancake, and a gluten-free cinnamon walnut pancake (sort of hidden by the potato pancake…sorry!).
The tofu and the latke were my favorites. I wish I had gotten more tofu! The mac n cheese was quite good as well–just in appearance alone, it’s one of those “I can’t believe it’s vegan!” foods. I mixed a liberal amount of chili garlic sauce into the mac to make it perfect. Sweet potato home fries, check. Cinnamon walnut pancake–a bit heavier/denser than I’d normally like, but I am also not accustomed to gluten free eating so maybe it comes with the territory. Flavorful though, and I enjoyed the big crunchy walnut pieces in it. The tempeh bacon was the only thing I wasn’t thrilled with; that said, I have tried and failed to love tempeh in the past so my opinion is not terribly weighty on whether this was good or not.

Holy crap. Besides being incredibly photogenic, this thing was delectable. I ate half of it early in the day with my brunch and the other half for dessert later on. A finger-lickin’ delight, and I can’t wait to go back for more!
I have alot more to say about Peace o’ Pie in a future post (in my draft folder right now…along with everything else ever. Sigh.) All you need to know for now is that it’s friggin’ awesome and any vegans that visit Boston should make it a point to stop in!
