Make this really fancy Breakfast Brunch with little mini vegan quiches made from Sunshine Breakfast Patties. I used Organic Mini shells by the Filo Factory for my quiches. If you are gluten free you can make them without using the filo shells. I also put some Cascadian Farms Organic Spud Puppies on the platter. I made some fresh fruit kabobs and then placed some gluten free bagels made from millet flour in a basket. I bought the bagels from www.Delandbakery.com. To make these mini quiches, finely chop one bell pepper and one shallot and saute with some olive oil. Mash a block of tofu in a bowl with a fork and add some salt and pepper, and 1/2 tea. turmeric. Break up 2 defrosted Sunshine Burger Breakfast Patties into the bowl and stir everything together. I filled the mini filo cups with this mixture. If you are gluten free, oil some mini muffin tins and fill them with the mixture instead. You can add some of your favorite veggie cheese to the top and then bake at 375 degrees till browned for about 25 minutes. This makes 24 little mini Quiches. Put the spud Puppies in the oven with the mini quiches and while they bake make the fresh fruit kabobs and put the bagels in the basket. Set up the table for a beautiful delicious Breakfast Brunch....Enjoy !!!!!!

The ones in the photos are leatherbacks which are blackish in color and live far off shore and are the largest. Leatherbacks can grow to be up to eight feet long !!!!
Three days after the eggs have hatched and the babies walked to sea we check the nest with the turtle patrol.. We carefully hand dig out the nest and check for any more babies who couldn't find thier way out to the top. We found two left this time.
All the sea turtles are now endangered because people have eaten so many. The most abundant varieties left are the green turtles which are named green because they become vegetarians at adulthood. I presently volunteer at the Marine Science Center working to save rescued sea turtles that have been injured by motor boats, fishing gear, etc. Not all of them recover, but lots of them get well and it is so exciting to see them get released back home to the sea!!!!! I must say......they are such beautiful and amazing creatures!

This is so easy to make. I love garnishing the plate with fresh raw veggies from my local farmer's market. I stuffed the pita with a garden herb Sunshine Burger(defrosted) with some left over mashed potatoes and some fresh bean sprouts and some frozen mixed organic veggies. Add some cheese or veggie cheese like follow your heart and wrap in foil and bake in a 400 degree toaster oven for 35 to 45 minutes. Wow...this is an easy hand held meal !
