Pancakes, sausage and bacon have their place in a decadent Sunday brunch. But you know what’s also great? A late morning meal that won’t leave you napping for the rest of the day.

At restaurants like Galit in Chicago, Spice Finch in Philadelphia and Sarma in Somerville, Massachusetts, chefs take inspiration from Israeli, Turkish and Persian dishes and flavors to make brunch spreads that are rich with vegetables, spices and bright notes of citrus – without the sugars and carbs that lull you into an afternoon on the couch.

Any one of the dishes makes an excellent meal by itself. If your pod is big or you like leftovers, try making two, or all three, together.
