Breakfast for Supper!

What could be more fun than breakfast for supper?  This is always a huge hit in our house and the kids are always asking for it.  Saturdays are usually a pretty lazy day here, particularly now that skating is done and swimming hasn't started yet ;)  Tonight we had VeganDad's breakfast sausages, pancakes, hashbrowns, and a smoothie!  I tried making extra pancakes to freeze for quick breakfasts during the week but the kids would have none of that.  I think my oldest daughter had 6 pancakes (not even a record) and my son ate the last 5.  I have major worries about my future grocery bills!

Vegan Dad's Breakfast Sausages
1 cup white kidney beans
1 3/4 cups vegetable broth
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp braggs
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 1/2 cups vital wheat gluten
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 minced clove garlic
1 1/2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp sage
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cayenne

*Pulse beans in food processor several times
*Pour beans into large bowl and add remaining ingredients.  Mix well.
*Prepare 25ish pieces of tin foil.  Divide mixture into 25 small balls and wrap individually like a tootsie roll.
*Steam in bamboo steamer for 30 minutes
*Fry in small amount of olive oil if you like your sausages crispy.

Berry Smoothie
