Good Morning!


Breakfast -- the most important meal of the day.  Most early mornings I'm not up for eating a lot, so a smoothie or some eziekiel toast suits me just fine, but on this lazy Sunday I wanted a big bowl of tofu scramble.  My favorite scramble includes roasted potatoes, carrot, spring onion, collards and garlic. Here are the fresh bits. At this point the tofu is already pressing and the fingerling potatoes, diced and coated in olive oil, salt and pepper, are already in a 450 degree oven. After 15 minutes I was ready to pull out the crispy potatoes, and put it all together in a pan. While it sauteed, the pressed tofu was broken into pieces with a wooden spoon. A dash of ume vinegar, some more salt and pepper and enough turmeric to flavor and color the bean curd to a lovely egginess, and I was all done and ready to eat. Oh -- a generous shake of smoky, cheezy nootch was also amazing on top.  Mmmmm.

  4. Lisa-- LOVE your blog! will have to learn and try some of that!

    Stephanie -- yeah, not original to me, I saw it somewhere and like it better than the word "yeast" -- bad association from my life pre-vegan!

  5. Oops! That (sportysoftball) was me (Cheryl-Midlifevegan) Sportysoftball is my daughter -- didn't know she checked my blog -- interesting! For some reason, today blogger is not letting me sign in as myself. I got some error code and am not computer-literate enough to know what to do with it. Hopefully it will just magically fix itself tomorrow. Sorry for the confusion.
