The second most annoying question I get as a vegan is, “What do you eat for breakfast then?”
Who died, and became the breakfast God that declared, “We shall eat nothing but chicken fetus’s and bacon,” to start our days? In fact, breakfast is the most important meal of the day; it is meant to help you start your day off on the right foot. Eating heaps of unnecessary fat just does not scream healthy start does it?
My favorite breakfast includes; fresh fruit, scrambled tofu with homemade sriracha and sprouted bread with all natural peanut butter. Balanced, full of protein and cruelty free. Unless, I am lazy and on the run, then of course I stick to my Power Breakfast smoothie!
- Coconut oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 package firm tofu (non GMO of course!)
- 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 pinch turmeric (for colour)
- 1 tsp sea salt
- ½ tsp pepper, and to taste
- ¼ -1/2 cup water
- Heat a small amount of olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic until translucent. In a small bowl or blender, combine yeast, garlic powder, turmeric salt and pepper with enough water to make a sauce. Whisk until combined (no lumps please). Crumble tofu and add to the pan and cook for 3 minutes. Pour the sauce mixture onto your tofu and stir frequently until the liquid has evaporated.
