Vegan Mofo is here!! For those of you who don't know what it is all about, it's basically where a whole bunch of vegan bloggers dedicate a whole month to posting as much as possible about vegan food. Neat right? I think so :) I found out about it through The Post Punk Kitchen and hummed and hawed about participating since I have been pretty bad about updating my blog lately, but after reading all the awesome threads on The PPK Forums , I got really exicted and totally wanted to be a part of it.
This morning we decided to go to Mo:Le for breakfast. It's one of my favorite places to eat since they have vegan food, raw food and regular omni food for the manfriend. My favorite dish used to be the vegan basic scramble but somewhere along the line the portion got really small and the flavour was super bland so I kind of abandonded it for a while, but today was a scramble kind of day. I was hesitant to order it because I have taken quite a liking to my own cooking...I was pleasantly surprised once it arrived in front of me and I took my first bite. It was nothing like the scrambles I make, not better, not worse, but different in a good way! It had a bit of kick which it never had and I am not usually into spicy food but this was all sorts of awesome.
Served with pesto hashbrowns, sourdough toast with a side of peanut butter, a roasted red pepper which I scored from my man's dish (I still don't understand how anyone can hate on a red pepper), garnished with pea shoots, red cabbage and carrots this definitely made my morning. I was so stoked on the comeback of my favorite dish that I made a scramble for dinner! Behold my version of a timeless vegan classic. The Tofu Scramble.
You will need:
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1 175g package extra firm tofu, pressed of excess moisture
Braggs Liquid Aminos
spice combo: generous sprinkle of turmeric, pinch of garlic salt, a little mustard powder, pepper to taste
Olive Oil or Vegan Margarine
Over medium heat, sautee onion & peppers in oil or margarine until tender. Crumbled in tofu, give 2-3 squirts of Braggs, add your spices, stir and cover for 5-10 minutes. Plate and top with avocado. Yeah, it's that easy! Serve with hashbrowns, veggie bacon, and fresh tomatoes or avocado slices.
I did it! My first MoFo post. :)
