Family-Friendly Monthly Vegan Brunch

On a Sunday of January, a blogger (who is not vegan) came to my vegan brunch. Guess what! She loved the food. Read her blog post (see link below). And check out next month's menu: old favorites & new items.

This is reservation-only event and guests must pay in advance. Use PayPal button on website http://ZestWishes.CO (click 'EVENTS' tab). Past events were hosted at Burma-Tokyo Restaurant. Due to increasing popularity of these vegan brunches, a more spacious venue is being considered and this post will be updated accordingly. Join Lean Chef en Route/ Zest Wishes to enjoy all-you-can-eat vegan brunch items crafted by Chef Mya Zeronis, using non-GMO, local and organic ingredients and NO refined sugar, chemically-processed, mass-manufactured, textured soy protein isolates, imitation meats and cheeses. Chef Mya has a background in globally-inspired contemporary American cuisine, and was recently praised by Pittsburgh Magazine and Muddy Melissa blog. Her vegan-friendly Around The World Pop-Up Dinner Series scored a chef profile in Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and write-up by Pop City Media. Menu:
1) Sprouted organic tofu-cauliflower scrambled “eggs,” nutritional yeast, chick peas, homemade almond milk 2) Whole wheat macaroni with homemade, unprocessed “cheddar” and cashew “ricotta.” Topped with Wild Purveyors shitake mushroom “bacon” bits [Healthier and vegan version of grand-prize winning recipe published in Taste of Home Magazine] 3) Clarion River Organics purple potatoes roasted with garlic, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, oregano and thyme 4) Blueberry-banana pancakes with chia seeds, flaxseed meal, organic spelt flour, organic virgin coconut butter, Grandma Z’s Maple Haus dark amber maple syrup 5) Asian- inspired chili with Clarion River Organics black beans, coconut jasmine rice, Non-GMO Project verified tamari sauce, organic chilies and homemade Sriracha (NO sugar, corn syrup, guar gum, xanthan gum & preservatives found in Chinese staple condiment) [Updated version of another contest-winning recipe]

    I couldn't make it either! The roads were too bad--- I couldn't even make it up the hill to get to my house! I had to abandon my car and walk up! So bummed, but I'll be there next month! :)
