A Hearty Challah

Stress has got the best of my sleeping, but I'm looking forward to a visit from my parents this weekend :) I'll have a lot to post, but for now I leave you with an awesome whole wheat challah that will be featured at brunch tomorrow. Whaddya know, it's even vegan!!




I also have to tell you about the lunch I threw together today, but no picture because I didn't have time to find batteries this morning. Imagine this: baby spinach, 1 pouch mango chipotle salmon, ~1c cooked wheat berries, leftover roasted eggplant and sweet potato (prob ~2T each), the butt of a red pepper diced, and goat cheese (~1oz). Warmed up just a little bit, mixed all together, it was pretty delicious!! And random :) Talk about cleaning out the fridge!


Some more contests...
Granola giveaways galore, at Lucky Taste Buds and N Her Shoes. If you like Pure bars (or wanted to try them), head over to An Apple a Day for a chance to win some! How about the first Morels of the season? Marx Foods is giving away 2lbs to one lucky winner! Hope you guys have a great weekend :)

Challah is still my favorite bread. I never made the vegan version though. I am sure this one is delicious as well.
Cheers,

I'd love some of your Challah for breakfast! It makes the best French Toast. Have a great weekend with your parents!

Holla for challah - and whole wheat?! Yaaay! I'll definitely have to give this a try. I think challah bread makes the BEST french toast.

Gorgeous...I love challah. I especially love Challah French Toast, although that would defeat the vegan element.

I love challah, but haven't made it yet myself.

how was brunch? pics for us??

Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter) said...

Your Challah looks perfect, and I loved the random salad. Sometimes you get the most amazing meals by just throwing all your leftovers in into one big bowl! Hope you had a nice visit with your parents.

Jess said...

Wow the bread looks really good! I didn't know you could use whole wheat flour in challah.

Nick said...

Challah is one of my favorite breads. I once found a frozen WW challah in a large grocery store that was quite delicious! Never tried making it though, clearly now I must.
