More catch up... Breakfast x 5

I've got a few more blogs to crank out before I'm caught up w/ the pictures I have been harboring on my camera. This one is all about breakfast, mostly breakfast that wasn't eaten in the AM. The AM type is typically nothing or a bowl of cereal and a banana.

Tofu Benedict. I could eat this every day. I use Joanne Stepaniak's "no cook hollandaise sauce" from the Saucy Vegetarian. You throw it all in a blender, then heat it up on the stove. Very easy. Storing in the fridge for a few days doesn't affect the flavor. I also add turmeric for some color, otherwise it's pasty white - even though I put more nutritional yeast in it than what they ask for.

The rest of it is easy. It's a piece of bread, teriyaki tofu, spinach. I sometimes add tomato or asparagus. Really, you can't mess this up.

For the teriyaki, I mix:
  • soy sauce
  • ginger
  • garlic
  • agave
  • toasted sesame oil.

I use powdered ginger and garlic if I'm feeling lazy. Also, sometimes I add hot sauce or chili flakes. I pretty much wing the measurements. I make the mixture pretty strong so it will marinate quickly. It basically stains the tofu. Soak the tofu in it for about 10 min per side. I don't make enough sauce to completely cover because I hate wasting things. If I weren't so lazy, I would press the water out of the tofu with a heavy dish, then marinate overnight in a weaker marinate, but this is a fast method. After "marinating", pan fry until browned. To save a step, I typically cook the spinach in the pan before frying the tofu.

Next on my list is Vegan With a Vengeance's Tofu Scramble. This is the best scramble I have ever had. I love it. Of course I dump in way more nutritional yeast because it's so good. Sometimes I make a double batch so I can have it the next day too - it keeps well.

My list of favorites wouldn't be complete without quiche. I have a few recipes that I love. The one pictured here is Isa's Classic Broccoli Quiche, its very very easy to make, foolproof and best of all very tasty. I like to add mushrooms and different veggies.

These chedda cheeze scones were awesome! Thanks, Hannah, for posting them. I used cheesly. I noticed that they disappeared very quickly. I must have a rat in my kitchen because Andy won't fess up. That same rat likes to get into the fridge too.

Last up is the Indian omelette by Global Vegan. I couldn't get it to look as good, but it tasted good. I have also made Susan's omelette which inspired Global Vegan. I love Susan's omelette, but the problem is that I eat it way too fast and forget to take a picture.

So glad that you liked the scones! I haven't tried cheezly myself, but I've certainly heard good things about it.
