Breakfast for Dinner..



Mushroom and Kale Strata w. Paprika Breakfast Potatoes and Tempeh Bacon



I love having breakfast for dinner. Mostly because I don't eat breakfast for breakfast. Meaning I usually just eat a bowl of cereal with some soy milk or run to the store for some iced espresso goodness and a vegan scone from Whole Foods. This evening I dragged everything out of my fridge and realized I had everything I needed to make V-con's Mushroom and Spinach Strata (except for the spinach, I subbed kale).

The strata might just be one of my favorite recipes. It was so delicious and so easy to make that I think everyone should make it for brunch this weekend. It is also very versatile as long as you have the ingredients to make the custard and some bread you can really use whatever veg you have on hand. I will be making this for our New Years Day breakfast this year along with some other recipes I've been meaning to try out.

Mmmm, that does look good. I'm glad subbing will be okay cuz I have mushroom haters.

That looks so good! I remember totally loving my grandma's strata when I was a kid. I'll definitely have to try this one.
(I had breakfast for dinner tonight, too!)

I didn't know what a strata was until I saw your picture. You inspired me and I think I am going to get my Vcon and have this for dinner!

I just got Veganomicon and I can't wait to get started with it. This looks delicious! It just may be my New Year's brunch as well!

I love breakfast for dinner too! Breakfast at actual breakfast time is always too rushed during the week. I've never made a strata before, but that one looks delicious! Kale sounds like a good sub too.

Breakfast for dinner/dinner for breakfast--it's all good! I just got my copy of Veganomicon and can't wait to try it. It looks delicious.

I'm so happy to see so many people cooking from V-Con. I'm excited to try some of the recipes I see recommended in the blogosphere. I am also happy to have joined this warm, outgoing, and tasteful (pun intended!) group of vegetarian cooks and writers. And thanks go first to VeggieGirl for reading and posting on my blog and tuning me in to the very wide world of vegan blogging. Wow! I'm overwhelmed, but amped to read all the links I see on everyone's pages. Should be working right now, but am reading and blogging :)
