Potato pancakes with soyrizo onion gravy

These are perfect for the morning after you've made mashed potatoes!

for the cakes you'll need:

3 cups mashed potatoes
1/2 cup applesauce
1 1/2 tbls. braggs liquid aminos
3 tbls. olive oil
2 heaping tsp. minced garlic
4 tsp. baking powder
3 tbls. whole wheat flour

and to make them:
combine baking powder, flour, and olive oil in bowl before adding the additional ingredients and mixing well. Preheat to medium-high heat and lightly oil your skillet, (if you fancy yourself a chef you should have a seasoned cast iron pan! ...but if you don't they'll still be good) before adding the mixture in fist sized balls to the pan. Flatten the balls into cake shape with your spatula and fry for about four minutes per side, or until each side is a light crispy brown.

for the gravy you'll need:
1 medium sized onion
1 package soyrizo sausage
1/2 cup black coffee
1/2 cup tofutti sour cream (sour supreme has hydrogenated oil so go with the original)
2 tbls. nutritional yeast

and to make it:
thinly slice the onion and add to a skillet that's been preheated to medium. Saute onions until they are almost transparent before adding Soyrizo and kicking up the burner to medium-high. Brown the Soyrizo and remove mixture from heat. To your pan add the coffee, sour cream, and nutritional yeast. Mix well. Spoon a liberal amount of gravy over your potato cakes and serve with something pretty like mixed fruit on the side.
(since the dish itself is surprisingly delicious but horribly ugly.)
