The Meatless (But Hearty) Breakfast
We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s true. But sometimes our choice of breakfast items can be so heavy that we have to fight all morning to stay awake after eating it.
Here’s one of our weekend favorites. It’s an egg and sausage alternative that is light, healthy and goes great with pancakes, home fries, toast or fruit. You won’t miss the meat or waste your whole morning stuck in bed.
- 1 package of refrigerated extra firm tofu
- 2 tbsp. chopped green bell peppers
- 2 tbsp. chopped red bell peppers
- 2 tbsp. chopped onions
- ½ cup cooked veggie sausage crumbles
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- ½ tbsp. Spike all-purpose seasoning
- 2 tbsp. Bragg’s Liquid Amino Acids
- 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
- 1 tbsp. curry powder
*NOTE: If you want to stay away from soy, you can also use JUST Egg, a plant-based egg alternative made from mung bean sprouts. Cook the JUST eggs according to directions first, then add other ingredients.
Drain and crumble tofu into bite-sized pieces into medium sized bowl. Set aside.
Heat olive oil. Saute peppers and onions in oil until tender. Add tofu and remaining ingredients and fold together thoroughly. Cook for 15-20 minutes, allowing the flavor of the tofu and spices to meld together. Serve warm with toast, a whole grain biscuit or a side of fresh fruit.
