What Do Vegans Eat? Breakfast Burritos!

While you're eating your breakfast burritos of sadness and death, with its amazing artery clogging and cancer causing properties, as you buy into the bs that bacon and eggs are a healthy breakfast, us vegans are eating breakfasts chock full fo veggies that taste fantastic.

Start with a whole wheat tortilla.

One slice of vegan cheese.  I use Go-Veggie American cheese.

Then I made a quick tofu scramble with some leftover tofu. How do I create this magical tofu mix that looks like an egg?  Simple.  Brush a little coconut oil in a pan, sautee some onion, crumble on half a block of tofu, add 1 tsp. of Indian black salt (a.k.a. Kala Namak, it has an eggy smell to it), 2 tsp. of Nutritional Yeast, 1/2 tsp. of turmeric powder (some people are opposed to it, because they don't need their tofu to be egg-yellow.  I add it because turmeric has so many health benefits), and salt and pepper.  I like to cook it until it's browned, it tastes more like hard scrambled eggs.

A few slices of beefsteak tomatoes from the garden.

Luckily, I had leftover french fries.  I have never been able to successfully resuscitate french fries, but I've learned they make a great potato hash for breakfast.  As I crisped them up in a pan, I added some breakfast sausage.  You can buy it at the store.  I like to make the version from The Homemade Vegan Pantry: The Art of Making Your Own Staples, which is a simple, onion, mushroom, barley and vital wheat gluten mix that I steam in mason jars.  I also happened to have a ton of spinach that needed to get finished off, so I chopped it up and threw it in.

Look at my pretty layers!

I toasted them in a pan with some coconut oil.

And voila!

Proof positive that vegans are eating food that looks and tastes as good as you meat-eaters are.  Except my breakfast is actually healthy and isn't going to give me a heart attack or high cholesterol.

Philly S.E.E.D. - Philly's Vegan Food & Beer Fest

The Hubby is staying home with the Tyrant, so me and my bestie can go.  She's not vegan.  I don't like beer.  Whatever.  We're going to have a blast.  See you there!
