Happy Baby Vegan Breakfast Cakes

I set out to create some vegan breakfast sausages and failed miserably but what I did create was a savory breakfast cake that the baby toddler loved! He still only has 4 teeth but an ever-growing appetite so I am always looking for good food he can gum down.

Ingredients (makes 10):
  • 1/2 cup hummus (or you could just use any sort of beans mushed up really)
  • 1 cup cold vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp olive oil (use 1 Tbsp if you subbed in beans for hummus)
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp chopped garlic
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground fennel seed
  • 1/4 tsp sage
  • 1/4 tsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 1/4 vital wheat gluten
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Combine all wet ingredients with spices. Add in the wheat gluten and nutritional yeast and stir until fully combined. You may find it easier to knead with your hands after awhile. Form into patties and place on a greased pan or nonstick mat. Cook for 10 minutes then flip and cook for another 10 minutes.  Allow to cool a bit before handing over to your baby. These are easy to chew and tasty. I encourage you to adjust the flavoring to suit your child's likes.

I hope this phone photo doesn't make you want to avoid this recipe at all costs, 
they really were quite tasty and the little guy inhaled them. 

Thank you for reading,
