Foodie Tuesdays: Southwestern Tofu Scramble

Peace Soulstars,

I have to admit that at first Inwasn’t fond of the idea of substituting tofu for eggs to give a vegan spin on scrambled eggs. I have cooked with tofu before and know that unless you don’t mind soggy or “mushy” textured tofu your best bet is to use extra firm tofu.  Pressing the moisture out of the tofu as if your life depended on it is crucial to getting a nice firm tofu texture.

I learned from doing my research first before experimenting with it.  When Ibteied this recipe for the first time I was pleasantly surprised!  The sauce made of spices including cumin, chili powder and the addition of two of my faves, kale and red peppers make for a flavorful scramble.

I was so hooked that I had it again the next day.  I made a fresh batch of course but did I mention this recipe is not only easy but quick too?  I had it with a side of homefries as pictured.  I’m a fan of southwestern style food too.

This recipe is a win win all around for me.  Hope you try it and love it as much as I do.  You can’t go wrong with a recipe that’s quick, easy, and packed with flavor!  Check out the recipe here!

Love and light,

Foodie Tuesdays: Portabella and black bean burgers!

Peace Soulstars,

I’ve been wanting to share this recipe with you for a while now! Most of the recipes I share are quick, simple and healthy yet flavorful!  I don’t do bland food.

So, whether it’s vegetarian, vegan, etc. it’s going to be packed with flavor! Can’t wait to share the tofu scramble recipe that had me dismissing eggs without hesitation…

In the meantime check out the recipe for portabella and black bean burgers from “the kitchen whisperer” here!  My meat eater husband and picky 11 year old daughter both request these burgers.  In their opinion, the texture is just like beef and the flavor is on point.

Just an FYI, this recipe calls for adding Worcestershire sauce to the burger patty mix.  I usually like to use Worcestershire sauce for my turkey burgers and it makes the flavor very similar to beef burgers.  Try it and let me know how you like it!

Love and light,

During this time of year I’m all about comfort food ie. soups, chilis etc.  Here is a recipe for a tomato based, hearty, flavorful and quick recipe for a soup that features cod and shrimp.  This is one of my family’s favorites for the fall and winter.
