Rainbow Breakfast Socca Pizza

Serves 6.


    Rainbow Breakfast Socca Pizza

    Here’s a quick party idea that won’t have you busy entertaining all day—breakfast pizza. Basically, it’s a healthy pancake with a nutrient-rich array of colour. Invite kids for a morning breakfast or brunch event, and they can personalize their own socca with fruit arranged in funny faces or rainbows.



    For easy serving, make socca a day ahead and wrap in parchment with sheets in between to keep them from sticking. Warm in oven before placing on serving plates for kids to make their own creative socca pizzas.

    In medium-sized bowl, place socca ingredients and whisk to blend. Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 hour or even overnight.


    Heat nonstick frying pan over medium. Add a couple drops of oil and brush to coat pan. Give socca batter a thorough whisk. Pour about 1/4 cup (60 mL) batter into hot pan and gently spread into 5 in (13 cm) round using thin, flat spatula, if needed.


    When bubbles on batter edges begin to appear and underside is starting to brown, flip socca, and continue to cook until the other side begins to turn golden. Remove to ovensafe dish and cover. Place in warming oven to keep warm while preparing remaining socca.


    In bowl, whisk yogurt and maple syrup together. Set aside. Place fruits, seeds, and nuts in separate serving dishes.


    When soccas are ready, place one on each plate. Provide utensils for kids to scoop and spread some yogurt onto each socca. Allow them to creatively decorate socca with seeds, fruit, and nuts.

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
