We woke up late this morning(for those of you without kids, late is about 8am), so rather than have breakfast we decided to cook up a vegan brunch. I LOVE mornings when the kids sleep in! I've been wanting to try a new breakfast recipe for a couple weeks, since stumbling upon something similar in a blog. I don't remember where it was, but it was so cute. Oatmeal cooked right inside a pie pumpkin!
Andy scooped out the seeds, and I mixed up some stuff - oatmeal, chopped almonds, cinnamon, brown sugar, a little bit of butter, applesauce, and then I added enough Almond milk till it seemed the right consistency. I scooped in into the pie pumpkin, sprinkled it with a little more brown sugar, and baked it with the lid on for about 45 minutes. It was awesome, and I usually don't even like oatmeal! It probably could have used a little more liquid, but hopefully next time I'll remember that. Faye and Drew both liked it too, and they usually don't eat oatmeal. We used our last pie pumpkin, but I think it would be good cooked in a casserole dish as well.
We also had homemade biscuits, tofu scramble, and potatoes. YUM! I wish we could have a vegan brunch every day - then maybe I'd actually eat breakfast!
