That sounds yumlicious! So you simmer it with the milks and then pop it in the fridge?

That's the one :)
The original recipe states 500ml water plus 250ml milk, 175g brown sugar and 120g tapioca..
Since it comes in 500g bags, I boil a quarter with a tin of coconut milk (about 400ml) which I make up to 500ml with soya milk then add another 250 of soya milk. I use less sugar - about 80/100g of brown sugar with 25g or so of white.
I also sometimes add a bit of cinnamon. The pack also says to soak the tapioca for an hour beforehand... once you've done that, drain it and boil it together with the sugar and milk(s) - it only takes about 10-15mins to cook.
Then I pour it into a rectangular plastic box and put it in the fridge when it's cooled a little, cut it into squares when it's cold :cool:

Totally recommended! :thumbsup:

I typically eat 1 of 3 things.
1. Banana and protein bar, with orange juice
2. Granola with berries and soymilk
3. Strawberry Protein Smoothie

I try to focus on getting a little extra dose of protein in the morning, to get that extra supply of energy for focus

Gluten Free Porridge with Seeds/Raisins and Golden Syrup (bad I know. lol)

Tofu Scramble with Mushrooms on Gluten Free Toast...or sometimes with hashbrowns.

Vanilla or Chocolate Pancakes with Fruit...or if I'm feeling unhealthy ice cream/syrup.

I only have this at the weekend. Toasted muffins filled with grilled ' bacon' usually redwoods, melted cheesely, grilled tomato and mushrooms. Topped with a bit of chilli sauce.

During the week I have muesli with soya milk topped with whatever fruit is around and some extra nuts.

At the moment I have a variation on a smoothie each morning.

The base is
250ml Soya Milk
125g Soya Yoghurt
1 tbs flax seed Ground
1 tbs coco powder
1 tbs Tahni or Peanut Butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 Frozen Banana

Into this I throw about 30-50g of frozen fruit of whatever type I fancy, and then blend it like crazy. If I add some icecubes (about 6) it's very thick, almost pudding like, and if I soak the flaxseed in the milk overnight it's even better.

I normally has a very small slice of toast with yeast extract before this.

I've ony just recently changed my diet to vegan (a little over a week ago actually) so I'm getting some good idea's here.

Though I have been enjoying Jalapeno humus on pumpernickel bread topped with cucumber and cress also museli with soy milk

I am so loving this thread ;)

Okay, a typical morning for me would be:
Wake up and do 45 minutes of yoga and meditation, then pour myself a cup of coffee. When I've finished this, I make a smoothie made from whatever I have on hand, usually this:

2 bananas, oranges or apples, or a mix of two of those
A little oat bran
A LOT of veggies, typically red and yellow bell peppers, cucumber, tomato, red beets and SPINACH!
And just enough ornage juice to make the blender work :p

Guess it's more a fruit puree than a smoothie :o

Current favourite is a late breakfast, early lunch of warm bagels with Tofutti cream cheese and a slice of Redwood bacon on one side, and a hummus/tahini mix on the other side. Mmmm.

My usual is oatmeal with walnuts, some brown sugar, and whatever fruit or spices I feel like throwing in. Made with water.
OR whole wheat bagels/toast with peanut or almond butter.
I usually have calcium-fortified orange juice or fruit on the side.

But favorite would be a HUMONGOUS breakfast. Some combination of (pick one from each):
BAKED GOOD: Some variation of waffles (pumpkin chocolate chip or banana-oatmeal-raisin or double chocolate). Blueberry pancakes. Lemon poppyseed muffins. Blueberry scones. Cinnamon muffins. Cinnamon rolls with tons of icing. French toast.
FRUIT: Fruit salad. Juice. Smoothies.
SAVORY:Tempeh bacon. Potatoes fried with veg sausage. Tempeh and white bean sausage. Biscuits with sausage gravy. Fried tomatoes and mushrooms on toast. Veg bacon.

I think I'd need several weeks to get all 'favorite' breakfast combinations in, I just can't decide.

I usually have for breakfast a banana, soy milk with muesli or digestive biscuits and raw cashews or a little dark chocolate. When I run out of soy milk, I have a banana with some other dried fruits and some oat flakes and the others I've mentioned before :-).

I've not been vegan long, but so far my fave vegan breakfasts are:

1.) Organic peanut butter and jam on toast with a bowl of fresh strawberries and blueberries.
2.) Porridge (made with rice milk for sweetness) and sprinkled with a few chopped walnuts and grapes.

I'm looking forward to getting new ideas from everybody about different vegan breakfasts :).

I've been having oats, blueberries, and tofu for breakfast 5-7 days a week for a few months now. I love it.

^ tofu how?

Sep 13th, 2011, 11:00 PM
Take a portion of medium firm tofu, and just mix it with prepared oats and blueberries.

my favorite is tofu scramble (freezing the tofu first, then thawing it and squeezing out the water gives it that fluffy egg texture). i sautee it with spices and fresh veggies and top it off with some homemade salsa. it is so satisfying and filling.

^ Aye, same here. Hearty 'n Heavenly.

i don't understand. firm tofu? wouldn't it just be like a raw tofu scramble?

I am enjoying healthy granola with the recipe from Alicia Silverstone's ''the kindness diet'' it is so delicious and low in fats and sugar.

You're all so, healthy! Does no-one else go for a Full English!?

Toast, baked beans, fried mushrooms, roast tomato, fried TVP sausages, fried hash browns, scrambled tofu if you like it. If only I could find good vegan bacon...

Sure I might be losing that extra life-expectancy I have over the meat-eaters, but I'm sure going to enjoy losing it! :lol:

For breakfast I typically enjoy 6-grain hot oatmeal (or old fashioned) with a tbsp of pure cooked pumpkin, stevia, vegan powdered milk (soy protein concentrate), TVP, cinammon, nutmeg, pumpkin spice, vanilla extract, and sometimes 1/2 of an apple. It's healthy and nutritious!

I don't really have a favourite, but what I have been having regularly are:
Banana smoothie (2 large banana's and a little soy milk)
Home-made banana bread w/ peanut butter spread.

Kind of enjoying the bananas while they are on special :lol:

Dec 23rd, 2011, 10:19 AM
Only some muesli :)

Dec 23rd, 2011, 01:51 PM
I like sweet things for breakfast. Cake is the breakfast of champions by far if you've got any leftover!

Dec 24th, 2011, 04:07 PM
I did scrambled tofu on toast for the first time the other day. I had no idea what it would be like but I LOVED it!! :D
