I always have a hard time coming up with a succinct and intelligent answer to this--"Food?" Is what I usually blurt out, or defensively--"All kinds of stuff!" It is not really something I can answer in a sentence. So let us answer it in a blog!
One of my most favorite meals. Also a meal that is almost synonymous with two ingredients that are definitely NOT vegan. Cheese and eggs...so what in the heck do you eat? I personally love making brunch at home.
Well I discovered that quiche vegan style is so simple it's criminal! I made an easy and super yummy quiche for a potluck and it went over without a hitch with veggies and omnis alike! The recipe is easy to change around. I made a mushroom and spinach quiche instead of asparagus. I wish had a photo to share. I will get better about it promise!
I tried out an omelet recipe from my favorite vegan cookbook and it was great! It really cooks up well in the skillet and looks like an omelet and tastes great!
When I first went vegan the true staple for that Sunday morning brunch was the "Tofu Scramble" I am no cook but I do love to make scrambles so I will share the ingredients I use to make it extra scrumptious. Tofu Scramble is a super easy introduction to the vegan brunch!
- I package firm tofu
- a few Tbsp of olive or sesame oil
- one small onion diced
- 2 (or more!) cloves of garlic minced
- 1 and 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 cups of diced fresh veggies
This is a scramble so add some veggies! You can add pretty much anything to this but I recommend spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes and carrots.
Slice up all of your veggies and drain your tofu. Heat up the oil in a non stick pan. I usually go with a medium high setting. First add the chopped onions. When the onions are soft add tofu. I crumble the tofu in the pan with the back of the spatula. Cook for about 5 min stirring occasionally. When the tofu begins to turn brown add the seasonings. Once stirred in add the veggies and cover and cook until the veggies are soft. Serve with toast, sauteed potatoes, or as a sandwich.
