Vegan Brunch

Proving once again that being vegan is not about depriving yourself of anything. There was no school today for the Man-Cub so we slept in and had a big breakfast:

I fried up some veggie bacon strips in about a teaspoon of oil:

Then I made a pretty dry roux with the oil and some flour - browned it a bit.

Added about 1 cup of soy milk:

Stirred constantly over med/high heat until it boiled and thickened.

For the biscuits I used the Alpro Soy Creme that I had bought for my coffee - then decided it was no good for that - but it makes wonderful light creamy biscuits.

For each biscuit use about 1/3 cup of Self-Rising flour and enough Alpro Creme to make a dough. You can roll them out or drop them onto a baking sheet, but Mom gave me a wonderful cast-iron biscuit pan a few years ago for Christmas, and I use it all the time.

Pop them in the oven at 450 °.

Bake until lightly browned (not such a good picture).

A little better...

Served here with cafe-mocha (Coffee mixed with Earth Balance Chocolate Soy Milk), Cranberry Juice, and the MIL's Strawberry Jam. YUM!

Later today we have planned a trip back to the indoor pool for the Man-Cub and then Bazaar setup - we have to be at the church about 7:00 AM tomorrow - good thing it's not far...
