Happy (belated) Father's Day to all of you dads out there! We began our day with Chocolate Chip Pancakes, using the Banana Bliss Pancakes recipe from Vive, but modifying replacing bananas with choco chips, and using barley flour instead of w/w pastry flour.
Our older daughter suggested the chocolate chip pancakes. She said "Dad loves chocolate best, so let's do chocolate chip pancakes". Hmmm, if that's the reasoning why didn't I get ice-cream for breakfast on mom's day?! :)
I decided to whip together a Warm Raspberry Sauce that will be in ED&BV. It is a fresh alternative to maple syrup for pancakes, and is equally delicious as a dessert sauce. It isn't overly sweet, but is sweet enough and bursting with that vibrant raspberry flavor.
For dinner, I made Spicoli Burgers, also for ED&BV. Hubby loves these, and when I asked what he'd like for dinner, he said either these or Chickpea Sensation Patties (on the Everyday Dish dvd and will also be in ED&BV). I hadn't worked with hemp seeds for a few weeks, so I was eager to make these. Funny, driving across town yesterday I saw a restaurant with a Father's Day banner advertising "Prime Rib Special". I laughed and said "hey hon, look we can take in the Father's Day prime rib deal... woo hoo!" While other dads were scarfing down ribs and steak yesterday, my man was asking for Spicoli Burgers. Love my guy!
Hope you all had a great day and great vegan food celebrating the dads in your lives!
