Stunt Week Day two: The Loco Moco

When my parents lived in Hawaii (just before my mother died), I went to visit. My dad took me to a place in Waimea called The Hawaiian Style Cafe. One of the specialties (apparently a staple among Hawaiian restaurants)is a dish called the Loco Moco. When it was described to me, I winced, and I was still an omnivore at the time. A bed of rice, a giant burger patty, a fried egg, and smothered in brown gravy. Well, when I decided to do this, I knew I wasn't about to scramble up some tofu to top an Amy's veggie burger, so I just used a handful of Daiya cheese. I cooked the rice with two mango black tea bags, topped it with the burger and cheese, and ladled on a simple brown gravy made from veggie broth and Bragg's.

Now that pictures are taken, I'm off to throw a bunch of vegetables on this. I feel so dirty. Mahalo!
