My friends and I love a good weekend brunch in Los Angeles. We’ve been all over town, and here are some of our favorite hot spots:
- Sqirl: The line is out the door every time I go here, and with good reason. My personal favorite dish, of course, is the rice bowl with sorrel pesto.
The best improvement to mashed cauliflower is adding pesto and red pepper flakes to the mix!
- 1 head of cauliflower, diced
- 2 cups water
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1 shallot or small spring onion, diced
- 1 tbsp of pesto (basil, pine nuts, nutritional yeast, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper)
- olive oil
In case you haven’t noticed, little gems are all the rage at restaurants these days. These aptly named heads of lettuce are a hybrid romaine/red lettuce combination that has a really nice flavor. I especially love them thrown on a grill!
Some of my favorite recipes on here can quickly be transformed into paleo friendly or gluten free dishes, if you’re so inclined. Just take the recipe and make it a bowl!
Vegan Pulled Pork Bowl with Nectarine Slaw: My pork sliders don’t need buns, quinoa or rice will do just fine.
