Tofu Breakfast Scramble (Wheat-Free, Gluten-Free, Low-Fat)



I like things complicated. And I like things simple - now that I'm in the STEM field, all I have time for is simple. Unfortunately, however, I forgot my actual camera at home until November - so bear with me! :)



The best part is that you can just throw it together and be done, no need for a blender to make this fluffy, creamy, "meaty" breakfast! It's so fluffy and you can use this variation for anything else.

Tofu Breakfast Scramble Ingredients:
16 oz Tofu
2 cups Cooked Spinach
1/2 package Soyrizo
1/4 cup +1 tbl Cold Water
1 tbl Cornstarch
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Sazon Seasoning Mix
Ground Black Pepper
Olive Oil (for cooking)
Cheeze Sauce Ingredients
1/4-1/2 cup GF Flour
1/4 cups Cold Water or Non-Dairy Milk 
1/2 cup Nutritional Yeast
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 Squeeze of Yellow Mustard
3 tbl of Coconut Oil

Combine your cheese sauce ingredients in a sauce pan, do not turn it on. Then, mash* the rest of your ingredients together, and put into a medium pan over low heat in the olive oil. If you fear that it will be too watery, add the water gradually. Turn on your pot with the cheese-sauce, constantly stirring. Once it thickens enough, either pour into the middle of scramble or drizzle it on after your plate is covered in salsa!

*I made mine more of an omelets with the help of a blender I had

Super easy, super yum, and pretty healthy too!

Who says you need dairy?

Vegan Taco Dip Recipe in 5 Minutes or Less! (Gluten-Free, Wheat-Free)


"What do you want for your birthday?" my sister asked, standing next to me with a phone in her hand. "I want vanilla cake and nachos! Miriam will love them!" I excitedly replied.

It was my ninth birthday, and my best friend, Miriam, and her dreamy brother, Josh, came over to celebrate with me! We played Selena, and I kept obnoxiously asked if I sounded like her (No, no I didn't.) until Miriam relented, looked away, and said "Kind oooof," I continued to sing badly to more of Selena's music throughout the night.

I played with an amazing mermaid doll she gave me and I remember there was a cake with a plastic Barbie on it! She sat on in a princess dress while Miriam and I helped my mom arrange the candles on our cake. But that was just the afterthought. The real prize was nachos.

On our nachos, we put our Taco dip - and it goes like this!

*Cheezy Tortilla Chips
Taco Dip
Onions
*Cheeeeese

*Vegan, of course!

It's so yummy, Miriam and Josh ate huge amounts! They went home stuffed, and I went to bed thinking that I sounded "kind of" like Selena.

Ingredients
Refried Beans
TVP Crumbles (I used Boca Crumbles)
Vegan Cream Cheese
1/2 tsp Homemade Taco Seasoning
Water

Toppings
Onions
Tomato
Lettuce
Olives
Avocado
Rice Cheese

This recipe is soooo simple and you can make it in less than five minutes, in a microwave or on a stove top. Just add the ingredients in any order, in any amount. If there isn't enough seasoning - increase the amount by 1/4th until it's perfect!

Serve on top of nachos, melt some vegan cheese on top and serve! Yum!
