Bratwurst Bowl, Burger Salad, & Pancakes!

I picked up some Viana Baby Bratwurst at Ester's Pub in Little Rock a couple weekends ago, but I wasn't sure what to do with them. These tofu-based brats are about half the size of buns, so eating them the traditional way was out. So I decided to cut them up and saute with brat toppings (bell pepper and onion) and serve them up bowl-style over some roasted potatoes. Topped with Trader Joe's Zhuong Sauce! Have y'all tried this yet? The Zhuong Sauce is so good!

Since I'm back in the office now, I'm trying to eat at Crosstown Concourse restaurants at least once a week. Last week, I treated myself to a Superfood Salad with a Vegan Patty at Farm Burger. You can get it with their house-made patty (like I did) or a Beyond patty. I love this salad because it's loaded with nooch and fried chickpeas.

Curb Market in Crosstown Concourse has been serving Buffalo Cauliflower on Wednesdays, so I got some as a little desk snack one morning.

Here's my Friday night dinner of Spaghetti with Meatballs! Perfect night-before-my-long-run meal. The meatballs are by Farm Rich, and they were on clearance at Kroger. They were really good!

And finally, here are some Monday morning pancakes! My rest days from running are Mondays and Fridays, so I get bigger sit-down breakfasts on those days. Last Monday, I made Chickpea-Oat Pancakes (gluten-free!) and served with Dr. Praeger's Sunday Funday Veggie Sausages (probably not gluten-free!).

I love the idea of using the sausages to make a bowl with.
