Everybody's doin' it Tofu Scramble

It's a nice snowy morning here in PC - the kind of snow that floats down like feathers. Here is a pic of the view off of my front porch today (I love the yellow aspens against the snow):

October Snow

It is a perfect morning for a big breakfast. This morning we made hashbrowns from the remaining russet potatoes, Lite Life Vegan sausage patties and a Tofu Scramble. These are definitely not the most photogenic items but they tasted fantastic.

Tofu Scramble

To make the hasbrowns, I used my ricer to squeeze water out of the potatoes after I finely grated them in my food processor. I happened to have minced shallots in the food processor ahead of grating the potatoes and they picked up a nice light shallot flavor. Simply Recipes has a nice instructional on making perfect crispy hashbrowns.


For the Tofu Scramble, I kind of sort of followed Vegan Dad's recipe. But... I sauteed a shallot before adding the tofu to the pan and left out the onion powder. I also added 1/4 tsp cumin to the spices and just added a splash of soy creamer to the pan at the end to wet the spices a little. As you can see from the pic above, I also left mine a lot chunkier.

Here is a pic of the entire breakfast:

  1. Now that's a breakfast!!

    *throws snowball*

  2. Wow, the view from your porch is amazing :) So hilly! We look into the parking lot of the university "Harris School for public policy". Heh.

  3. that looks like a wonderful breakfast! those hashbrowns...omg!

  4. Looks like a great breakfast. Nice job on the hasbrowns.

    I was thinking about trying out Vegan Dad's scramble because he said it was very kid-friendly and my kid needs kid-friendly food!

    Thanks for the beautiful snow picture. I guess winter isn't all bad!

  5. I cannot comment on whether kids will like it or not since I don't have any and my cats will eat anything. Vegan Dad's version is probably more kid friendly than mine. I would guess that kids don't like shallots or cumin.
