This blog is a celebration of the wonderful world of vegan cooking. Enjoy!

* The title of this blog refutes the dangerous idea that veganism is a weight-loss diet and that all vegans are skinny. Conversely, being a-not-so-skinny-vegan is also not the same as being overweight or unhealthy. All food intake must be part of a balanced lifestyle.

Sunday Brunch

We took the dog on a ridiculously long walk this morning down to the lake at Westlake and then on the bush walk along the river. When we returned Geoff demanded eggs on toast for breakfast. He received a stern lecture and then this:

A Not-So-Skinny Vegan's Scrambled Tofu
1 block of tofu (~300g) chopped
1/4 cup grated soy cheese
2 tbsp savoury yeast
1 shallot stalk chopped
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic crushed
1 chili chopped finely
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
+ any other spices you like!

Heat the oil in a pan and add garlic and chili over medium heat. When the garlic starts to turn golden add the tofu and dried spices. As the tofu starts to heat mash it gently until it looks like scrambled eggs (or to whatever shape you want). When the tofu is heated through add the savoury yeast and cheese. You may need to add a little more oil or some water if the savoury yeast makes the tofu too sticky. Stir through until you achieve a consistency similar to scrambled eggs. Add the shallots. Add S&P to taste.

Serve with toast buttered with Nuttelex. I also like to chop a tomato in half and cook in the same pan as the tofu until it is hot throughout and soft at the top and bottom. You may need to turn it a few times.

Happy Sunday morning!
