Spiced Tofu Scramble (v)

I attempted to make garam flour scramble on Saturday. It wasn’t very nice. So on Sunday I reverted to the old faithful of tofu scramble and order was restored to the universe 😉 You can use whatever vegetables and flavourings you like. This is what we fancied for brunch and very tasty it was too.

For 3-4 portions you need

  • 1 pack silken tofu
  • 1/2 tsp tumeric
  • 2 tomatoes, cut into rough chunks, cores discarded
  • 8 mushrooms cut into quarters
  • 1/2 pack baby leaf spinach
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin and ground coriander
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp soya sauce
  • 1 chopped red chilli
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Baked beans and hash browns to serve
  1. Begin by frying the onion and mushrooms in the oil for 5-10 mins until the liquid has come out of the mushrooms and started to evaporate.
  2. Add the tomatoes and cook for a further 2-3 mins to soften them.
  3. Add everything else and cook the tofu until it looks ‘scrambled’ and the spinach has wilted. Season to taste and serve with beans and hash browns.

Avocado Toast (v)

IMG_20171217_105756_057.jpg

I’ve come late to avocado toast. And now I can’t stop eating it  especially when it’s topped with chipotle chilli flakes and grilled until the tomatoes melt  I prefer to use sourdough or seeded bread, but use whatever floats your boat. 

For two portions you need:

  • 4 slices of toast
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 large, ripe tomatoes
  • salt, pepper and chilli flakes
  1. Scoop the avocado out of the skin and either roughly mash in a bowl or if the avocado is very ripe, squodge directly onto the toast.
  2. Top with sliced tomato and season well.
  3. Grill for about 5 mins until the tomatoes are hot.
  4. Scoff with optional extra chilli sauce (everything tastes better with hot sauce!)
  5. Level up in hipster vegan points and grow your beard an extra 1 cm for each slice consumed…
