Hash Brown Birds Nests
Hello & Happy Monday!!
Breakfast for me typically consists of avocado on toast, I know, I know, so “basic”, but I’ve been having avocado on toast long before it was ever a “thing”. (truth)
Fast forward to today, I love to explore breakfast concepts as it’s so easy to just have your go to like fruit or avocados, but to have fun with breakfast..
Now that’s magical
I can’t ever say that I’ve had the “traditional” Hash brown Birds Nest, but the idea came to me when Pinterest happened to be flooded with non vegan recipes.
Instead of thinking about what I can make vegan, I look at all foods vegan & non, ..and make whatever I’m craving.
I find that at the end of the day, you can really make just about anything vegan, and most times the aesthetics are more attractive, more nutrient dense, and in my opinon, taste a million times better.
If you’re a huge fan of the classic birds nest, love fun concepts, or simply want to wow your vegan and non vegan friends..
