In November I am going vegan for the month, mainly because I want to see what effects it has on my health, but also because it is World Vegan Month in November and I think it will be good to raise awareness and of course to learn!
I think it will be a fairly fuss free transition because I already eat a lot of vegan foods but my main concern is breakfast! At the weekend I am not a fruit/ granola/ smoothie kind of person…I am an eggs on toast kind of person! Religiously every weekend I wake up and make scrambled or fried eggs on toast with plenty of ketchup and a big cup of tea. It’s my treat for surviving on green smoothies and salads for the week 🙂
I know there are plenty of options out there that will help me give up those eggs for the month and supply me with an animal free wholesome hearty well deserved breakfast! Here is a round-up of my favourite finds that I can’t wait to try! Please click on the titles to see the recipes on the original bloggers website.
My tummy is literally rumbling like crazy looking at this photo! I’ve seen a lot of tofu scrambles around but what made this one stand out was the rich colour and all the spices. I like the healthy addition of kale and the fact they have served it with sweet potatoes. This could easily become my new regular weekend breakfast.
In Ali’s post for this recipe she urges you to keep an open mind and I’ll do the same 🙂 At the weekend I’m usually eating my breakfast around 10.30am (not 6.45am) and it almost feels like lunch so I like a good savoury flavour packed breakfast and I think this version of oatmeal is fab! I’m seeing a trend here too – kale for breakfast is more than acceptable!
I remember drooling over this recipe when they first posted it in June so when I found it again I got all excited and ready for November! Again I love the added spices and flavourings to the tofu, I can almost taste it now! I think for breakfast I would possibly omit the beans and just have that tofu, tomatoey, herby goodness wrapped in in a tortilla. Low fat, low cholesterol but high protein – perfect start to a busy saturday.
I love this recipe because it’s only got a handful of ingredients and it looks quick enough to whip up after a Friday night out on the town! I’ve made spinach pancakes before but mine had an egg in them (surprise surprise) so it was really interesting to see how its done without the egg. I’d be tempted to serve this with a big pile of sautéed mushrooms and serve with a big glass of orange juice…its all “big” on a saturday morning Hehe.
I think that will keep me going for a few weekends, do you have any favourite egg free breakfasts? Whats your ultimate cooked breakfast?
