Are you a fan of "brinner"? I sure am.
I've eaten breakfast for dinner so many times that it's not even funny.
There's nothing better than a warm bowl of oatmeal or a comforting tofu scramble at the end of a long day. Pancakes are always a great option too.
The other night I whipped this recipe up for my mom and I.
It's a juxtaposition of pancakes, cauliflower "potatoes", and sweet potato/apple/kale- all smothered in nooch gravy. How southern is that?
I was actually inspired by some of the dishes at this restaurant, but only slightly.
I actually had no real plan in mind when I was making this... I was just kind of winging it.
Luckily, it turned out to be very good. Don't you just love when that happens?
Don't let the long list of directions fool you- this recipe is actually pretty simple.
It is hearty and great for fall.
I have a feeling I'll be making this meal a lot as the weather cools down.
