Ever wondered what a vegan eats for breakfast without eggs or bacon? Do you envision them knawing on raw carrots and lettuce hovering over a bowl of kale and hemp seeds?
A vegan diet can not only be filling but completely satisfying and full of flavor. Here is what I just ate for breakfast.
- Small potato medley
- Black beans
- Fire roasted tomatoes
- Cubed extra firm Tofu (Tofu is flavorless, imagine it as flavorless scrambled eggs that will take on the flavor of whatever you cook it in)
- Avacado Oil
- Organic fajita seasoning
- Whole wheat flour tortilla
- Chao vegan cheese
- Dollop of soy-free vegan Earth Balance butter
With all the new oil blends and seasonings you have an unending plethora of mouth-watering flavors. Do not be afraid of tofu since it is in fact flavorless. The extra firm literally has the consistency of scrambled eggs. Whatever it is cooked in, is how it will taste. Imagine it as a seasoned filler. In this case, it was my egg like substitute. The end result of this recipe was a cubed crispy fajita seasoned filler.
Black beans, tofu, and potatoes offer a very filling base to this breakfast burrito. Where the fire roasted tomatoes, onion, fajita seasoning and avocado oil add it’s deep flavor. I added Chao cheese to the tortilla for a little more flavor and topped it with salsa.
Other options would be to top with vegan sour cream and avocado. (I totally would’ve already added avocado but I am out since I ate them all already!)
I topped my meal off with organic coffee with a small squirt of real maple syrup as my sugar or sweetener substitute and a couple tablespoons of vanilla almond milk.
I got all of the flavors, filling, and nutrients without all of the processed chemical s!#t storm that comes from various other everyday options such as sugar-laden cereal, processed meats, nutrient-less commercially produced eggs, and other empty calorie foods that just sit in your body offering no value.
Needless to say, I am now full and ready for a nap!
