What I’m Eating: A Week of Vegan Food

In all my years of blogging about vegan food, creating and sharing recipes, writing restaurant reviews, I have never participated in any kind of a What I Ate Wednesday link up or written any thing like Lindsey’s Weekly Eats posts. And as those of who you read my blog, and my history of “series failures” know, it may be a while before you see another post like this. But, as I sat down to write today, I just kept thinking about all the awesome vegan food that I’ve eaten in the last week and I felt like I wanted to share.

I made the most delicious tofu scramble the other day. I’ve written (frequently) about my love of tofu scrambles, and I’ve posted several recipes (here and here). This time I winged it, keeping it very simple and it turned out great.

In a nutshell: One block of firm tofu, drained. Break it up with a fork (so that it looks like scrambled eggs). Add 1/2 teaspoon turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon cumin, 1/2 teaspoon celery salt, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, and a little pepper. Adjust to your taste. Chop up 1/2 onion, 1/4 yellow or orange pepper, 1 potato, and 1 or 2 Serrano or jalapeno chiles. Cook in a little olive oil over medium heat, until the onion is soft and the potatoes are slightly browned. Stir in the tofu mixture and cook, stirring frequently until the tofu is heated through. Reduce heat and cover. Cook over low heat until the potatoes are cooked. Add a little vegan cheese and re-cover until the cheese is melted. Serve with tortillas, avocado, salsa, etc.

Last night I made tempeh burgers. Nothing especially fancy or different about them but they were very good. I served them with baked potato and zucchini fries.

My variations on my shawarma recipes are always a hit in our household. This week I made it with seitan, served with quinoa, hummus, and pita breads.

I also discovered Nuttzo! I’ve been using heart healthy Nuttzo all week instead of my regular peanut butter. All the nuts and seeds used in Nuttzo are organic, there are no added sugars, and two tablespoons of the healthy fat in Nuttzo provide 50% of the daily allowance of Omega 3 ALAs. I am pretty boring with my breakfast food, but I’ve used Nuttzo in protein shakes, slathered it on bananas and on my morning toast or muffins all week.
