Meatless Monday 4: Breakfast (or Supper)
OK, so I'm spoiled. The DH often makes breakfast for me, including chocolate-chip walnut pancakes (even though he's not thrilled about the chocolate chips). I eat them without butter or syrup - just as they are warm of the griddle! I am very thankful for the DH's indulgence.
Our pancakes are whole-wheat with no sugar added (the chocolate chips take care of that). The whole wheat makes them very substantial, more filling than a regular pancake. Sometimes the DH makes them vegan by using flaxseed meal as an egg replacement, and no choc chips. Have you tried carob chips? What do you think?
It used to be that meat made an appearance at the breakfast table. Those days are long gone. Most of us get by these days with cereal or bread. I remember my mom making breakfast-for-supper as a kid, and it was always fun! Who doesn't enjoy pancakes for supper?
Yesterday, we had a late breakfast on the balcony. It was a good excuse to enjoy garden-fresh green onions (with potatoes and eggs). The eggs could be replaced with a tofu scramble or fruit, if you prefer. This would make a hearty supper.
Do you like breakfast-for-supper? What's your favorite meat-free breakfast food?
