Favorite breakfast is at a place called Whole World in Clintonville, OH! They have this amazing dish called the big breakfast. Consisting of veggie sausage, tofu scramble, potato hash (potatos, corn, broccoli, onions, green pepps, etc.) and an english muffin. OMG!!! My mouth is watering just thinking about it:) If anyone out there from Whole World...hurry....please re-open soon:) We miss u!

Porridge with ginger and turmeric.
Jan 23rd, 2010, 10:39 AM
I just tried this and LOVED it!. . . .
1 pound regular tofu - firm
6 Tablespoons nutritional yeast (http://www.vegancoach.com/nutritional-yeast.html)
2 Tablespoons Tamari, or 2 Tablespoons Bragg's Liquid Aminos
1/2 teaspoon garlic granules (or powder), or to taste
1/2 teaspoon onion granules (or powder), or to taste
1/4 teaspoon turmeric (1/4 to 1/2 tsp. -- for color))
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1-2 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 small yellow onion, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, chopped
5 green onions, chopped
1 organic bell pepper (red, green, yellow or orange), chopped
1 cup shredded non-dairy cheddar or monterey jack cheese -- I like Follow Your Heart (optional)
12 spears asparagus (http://www.vegancoach.com/cooking-asparagus.html), lightly steamed
1. Drain and mash tofu. Mix with nutritional yeast, Bragg's, garlic and onion granules, and turmeric. Set aside.
2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add sunflower seeds and cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally. Add onion, garlic, green onions, and bell pepper. Cover and steam veggies until slightly tender (approx. 5 minutes), stirring occasionally.
3. Remove cover, push veggies to one side and add tofu mixture to 1/2 of pan. Cover tofu mixture with veggies, and add remaining tofu mixture to the other half of the pan. Smooth veggies over the top. Flatten with a spatula, and let cook over medium heat until browned on underside (5-10 minutes, or more). Flip with a spatula, and continue to cook until browned on the underside. Repeat this step until cooked to your preference.
4. Turn heat to very low. Cover scrambled tofu with cheese, place cover on skillet, and allow to melt.
5. Plate, cover with asparagus spears. Serve.
Vary the veggies, using your favorites
Try scrambled tempeh (http://www.vegancoach.com/tempeh.html)
Play around with the spicing each time to focus on a different nationality. For instance, Cajun flavors include chiles, hot sauce and tomatoes. Chinese flavors include basil, bean sprouts, coriander, ginger and mushrooms. South American flavors include allspice, chiles, chorizo (vegetarian, of course), corn and tropical fruits. Have fun creating your very own masterpiece.

scrambled tofu is always my favorite brekkie (although i eat this not just at breakfast time) but if im not in the mood to have a 'cooked' breakfast a simple thick slice of toast with lashings of dairy free butter and a good dollop of jam goes down really well followed by a nice hot black coffee :-)

Oh stop! You're making me hungry!! That sounds so delicious too! I love a good homemade jam on a thick slice of homemade toast. I made some strawberry-rhubarb jam recently that was soooo good. I found this particular tofu scramble on the internet somewhere and really liked the combination of foods. It had an amazing flavor.
You know what else makes a great breakfast? I took a bowl of hot oatmeal and topped it with sliced bananas, soy milk and a special topping that I made. The topping consisted of equal amounts of walnuts, flax seeds and wheat germ mixed up in a blender to a fine crumble mixture. I put this in a tight container in the frig and use it to top off soy yogurt, cereals or anything else that comes to mind and it's very healthy too.. rich in omegas! I also added a wee bit of maple syrup on top. It makes a very satisfying breakfast and is packed full of nutrition, especially with a glass of OJ! :smile:

My favourite breakfast/brunch is
- vegan sausage-mix patties (the dry mix that you add water to)
- baked beans
- fried mushrooms (in veg oil, with a teaspoon of dried herbs)
- tomatoes (fresh or tinned) with a splash of balsamic vinegar
- mug of tea with some Oatly milk
I think I could eat this every day, and it'd never get old!

Fresh apple slices dipped in baked oatmeal.
Blended Nanner and Chickory Root
Berries n' fresh pressed almond milk
Homemade sourdough bread (or regular)
Muffins (spelt, rye, whole wheat, kamut, brown rice...flour, homemade only)
Apple pie pancakes (or any variation made with spelt, rye, whole wheat, kamut, brown rice...flour - homemade of course)
Quinoa, buckwheat, barley, spelt, kamut - (whole grains)
Steel cut oats
Freshly squeezed juices, fresh smoothies
Baked rosemary homefries (though never for me - but I loove to cook for family/friends)
Latkas (Again, not my thing but I love making them!)
Fresh made fruit salad
Honestly, whatever I feel like making - and whatever those who I'm cooking for feel like eating - I love a challenge!

I hardly ever time to really cook or make anything in the morning but breakfast is really important for me, So I shoot for a pretty high calorie breakfast of
Coffee obviously. Preferably guzzled rather then sipped. Black from my coffee press.
A glass of soy milk if I don't put it in the coffee.
Breakfast staples: Peanut butter on a bagel or toast. A banana if not a glass of orange juice.
Beans on toast, piece of fruit
Bowl of oatmeal with banana a dollop of agave nectar and cinnamon if I get bored of my regiment of peanut butter toast and baked beans.
Scrambled tofu with spinach on the weekends.

Speaking of spaghetti on toast, besides that being a brilliant Idea, I'm considering putting spaghetti with some type of vegan meat ball in a pita pocket now. Spaghetti pocket, the things this forum makes me think up.
Jan 27th, 2010, 02:40 AM
That sounds good. I want to try spaghetti tacos.
Jan 27th, 2010, 10:28 AM
My 'weekend breakfast' (i.e. not bran flakes :P) is a veggie sausage or two sandwiched in a toasted bagel with marg & marmite.... Some garlic mushrooms on the side if I really need a treat!
I also really love frying up a mixture of onions, oyster mushrooms & tofu with the spice mix in the Veganomicon scrambled tofu recipe...
Jan 27th, 2010, 08:10 PM
Just lately I've got a thing for semolina for brekkie

Smoothies- either blueberry/soy milk or frozen fruit with OJ

Hmm, all this bagel talk may kick off my bagel addiction again- bagels with chili hummus and marinated tofu. So good, even my cat used to want it!
