|Vegan 'fry up'|
People often ask why vegans or vegetarians try to make carnivore look alike meals.
I am not really sure why we do this, but at the moment we have Karen's parents staying with us, and they are not even vegetarian, let alone vegan.
I think we do this to make them feel at home, and that our food is not too strange.
The other morning we did a breakfast along the lines of an 'eggs benedict' dish.
We fried up onions and mushrooms in a pan, and then added a little dried soy mince, tomato paste and a dash of tamari.
Some organic fresh spinach was lightly steamed/wilted.
Using a block of plain tofu, we made scrambled tofu - see scrambled tofu recipe
All served up on toast with some organic cherry tomatoes.
Not exactly a fry up in the true sense, but a colourful, tasty and healthy start to the day.
(Oh - the toast in the picture is rye bread. Not vegan. The folks didn't enjoy our vegan bread, which I have to admit takes a bit of getting used to!)
