On the Brain

Posted May 15 2011 3:42am

The raffle is up and running! If you want to donate to a great cause and have a chance to win delicious food, here’s your chance :)

Do you ever get words or phrases stuck in your head? It’s a daily occurrence for me. Yesterday it was ‘transorbital lobotomy’, and today it was ‘breakfast nachos.’ Yeah, I don’t understand how my brain works either.

I’ve never actually had breakfast nachos before because I am a total sweets-for-breakfast gal. Actually, I’m a sweets-for-every-meal gal, but without fail, my breakfasts are always sweet. So, rather than a savory dish, I figured out a way to have my nachos and sugar too!

Breakfast Nachos, Kind Of

For the ‘tortilla’-

  • 1/2 cup garbanzo bean flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk until smooth. In a medium pan over large heat, cook like a giant pancake. The key is only flipping once!

For the ‘beans’-

  • 1/3 cup garbanzo beans
  • 2 tbsp plain yogurt
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Sweetener, if desired

Using a food processor or blender, process all ingredients until they reach your desired consistency. I kind of like it a little chunky!

For the ‘sour cream’-

  • 2 tbsp plain yogurt
  • 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • Sweetener, if desired

Mix it all up and dollop it on top of the ‘nachos’.

Instead of veggies, I topped the nachos with strawberries and a few chopped dates. I also drizzled on some almond butter instead of salsa!

This kept me full for hours! I went to the gym after I digested and ended up staying longer than normal, and I wasn’t even hungry when I got home. I didn’t eat lunch until 2!

Bonus points for enjoying it outside. Even though the weather is unseasonably cloudy and cool, it felt nice to sit on the patio.

Extra bonus points for licking the plate clean with a frenzied look in your eyes.

(I always forget to remove the tags from new clothing… apparently I forget to remove the stickers from new plates!)

What’s the weirdest phrase you’ve ever gotten stuck in your head? I had ‘fontina cream sauce’ stuck in my head for weeks once. Damn you, Olive Garden commercials!
