Brats, Toasts, and a Burrito Bowl

Ever since Oktoberfest beers came out this season, I've been on a bratwurst-on-pretzel-bun kick. I bought some Beyond Brats and some Impossible Brats, and I've been enjoying the heck out of them. Here's an Impossible Brat (my fave of the two) with homemade kraut and air-fried potatoes.

And here's a Beyond Brat with pickles and mustard and a side of vegan chips and cashew queso. Honestly, the two sausages taste very similar, but the Impossible has a slighty meatier flavor. Somebody should do a Beyond-Impossible Challenge (like the Pepsi-Coke challenge from back in the day; I always guessed correctly on that!).

I'm also still making sourdough bread — nearly every week. I love having toasts for breakfast with all kinds of toppings. This week, I made some Garlicky Cannellini Beans on Toast with vegan cream cheese and sprouts.

And I often do Avocado Toast with my sourdough. This one has lots of notch and Yellowbird Jalapeno Sauce.

Finally, here's a recent Burrito Bowl with brown rice, black beans sauteed with Swiss chard, cashew queso, salsa, avocado, and jalapenos.

My favorite way to eat brats is on a bun topped with pepperoncini slaw. Cabbage, carrots, pepperoncini tossed with a dressing of mayo, black pepper and a splash of pepperoncini brine.

That sounds great, Jacqueline!!
