Tofu scrambles are a quick and easy meal option, and a delicious plant-based take on scrambled eggs. Tofu scrambles easily to create the same look and texture as eggs without the animal products. I love this recipe blend, with all of the flavors of my dream destination, Greece. Try adding bruschetta for an Italian taste profile, or taco seasoning and pico de gallo for a Latin flavor.

Mediterranean Tofu Scramble

Ingredients

  • 1 package firm tofu drained
  • 1/4 cup Kalamata olives finely chopped
  • 1 14.5 ounce can artichokes in water, drained and chopped
  • ½ cup sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 cups fresh spinach loosely packed
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 shallots minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup hummus
  • 2 tablespoons Italian or Greek seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Place the sun-dried tomatoes in a bowl with hot water. Allow to sit for 10 minutes, then drain, (squeeze out as much water as possible), and chop.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large pan. Add in the garlic and shallots. Cook until soft and fragrant.
  3. Stir in the tomatoes, olives, and artichokes, as well as the Greek (or Italian) seasoning and salt. Saute for 3 minutes.
  4. Crumble the block of tofu into the pan, to resemble the look of scrambled eggs. Cook for another 5-7 minutes until the tofu is slightly golden.
  5. Combine the hummus with 2 tablespoons of water and stir well so that it has the consistency of a dressing. Add the hummus to the tofu and vegetables. Stir well.
  6. Slowly, stir in the spinach and allow to cook until wilted, about 3 minutes.
  7. Remove from the heat. Taste and add salt and pepper, as needed.

Breakfast-Waffle-Pizzas-Hero-min-2-1280x720.png

August 24th is National Waffle Day. Let’s celebrate with breakfast pizza waffles! This recipe can be as easy or as complicated as you want to make it. Use frozen waffles or make your own from scratch. Whichever way you go, choose a neutral flavored waffle that can either go sweet or savory. If you’re in a waffle mood, top your pizza with an extra waffle and make a waffle sandwich.

Breakfast Waffle Pizzas

There’s really no right or wrong way to make these. Heat up the toaster or waffle iron, spread out your toppings and sauces and have some delicious, breakfast fun with the family!

 

Breakfast Waffle Pizzas

Ingredients

  • Your favorite vegan toaster waffles (or homemade waffle batter)
  • Sweet and/or savory toppings
  • A variety of sauces

Instructions

  1. Toast the waffles until they are half way done. While they toast, prepare your sauces and toppings. Slice and chop your fruit. Cook your veggie meats and hash browns, if using. If making homemade waffles, prepare your waffle on a waffle iron and continue to step two to add your toppings.

  2. Once the waffles are semi-toasted, place them on a baking sheet. Spread desired sauce and toppings on top of the waffles. Place the baking sheet under the broiler for 2-3 minutes.

Everyone has their own pizza favorites, but below are some ideas to inspire delicious creations.

For savory waffles, try these toppings and sauces:

  • Chopped or crumbled veggie bacon
  • Veggie breakfast sausage
  • Shredded hash browns
  • Soyrizo
  • Avocado
  • Tomatoes
  • Red onion
  • Capers
  • Salsa
  • Dairy-free cheese shreds or slices
  • Dairy-free cream cheese or spreads

Breakfast Pizza Waffles

For sweet waffles, try these toppings and sauces:

  • Sliced berries and fruit
  • Toasted coconut
  • Chopped nuts
  • Dairy-free mini chocolate chips
  • Mini Dandies vegan marshmallows
  • Hemp, chia, and/or flax seeds
  • CocoWhip
  • Nut butter
  • Jam
  • Agave or maple syrup
