Dinner For Breakfast: Breakfast Burrito & Breakfast Pizza


So, everybody loves breakfast for dinner, right? Like when you were 8 and you got to have Fruity Pebbles ™ for dinner? Well, this is like that–but the opposite! It’s about taking regular dinner-y foods, and converting them into something palatable for breakfast. So, we’re not talking about firing up the grill at 7am and […]

Green Smoothie


We found this power-packed smoothie recipe at Beauty That Moves.  We modified it a bit based on what we had on hand and what would fit in the blender. Green Smoothie 1 apple, sliced (we used a big crispy Fugi) 1 banana, halved (since we didn’t have any pear on hand) frozen strawberries to taste […]

Rainy Day Breakfast (Tofu Chili Scramble)


It’s a rainy sunday and we needed a scramble with an extra dose of heartiness. So, hot on the tail of my recent culinary upcycling kick, I whipped up a tofu scramble using our leftover chili and some wild rice from our wild rice and mushroom soup. If for some reason, you happen to have […]

Breakfast Day!–> Buttermilk Pancakes and Rainbow Chard Tofu Quiche


Mark agreed to do the dreaded task of mulling through the taxes today, so I wanted to take good care of him and feed him well all day.  For some reason, I feel like having breakfast cooked for you is one of the most comforting acts someone can perform, so I declared it breakfast day […]

Indigenous Scramble


No, this is not a hilarious dance performed by the natives to this continent–it’s a tofu scramble made with local ingredients, namely wild rice and acorn squash. I like to imagine this as the Thanksgiving Breakfast, pilgrims and natives alike feasting cruelty-free on tofu and native crops. No one gave anyone smallpox and everyone lived […]

French Toast (take 1)


There are a lot of vegan french toast recipes out there. For some reason, though, none of them has every really done the trick.  They’re always okay, but either (a) just create a crispy layer on the outside without really transforming or flavoring the bread, or (b) soak all the way through the bread, making […]

Breakfast Shakes


Neither Amy nor I are really breakfast people. It’s too much food too early and too much work. Now don’t get me wrong–we love a good brunch, when you have the time, the empty belly, and folks to share with. But on an average day, we’ve come to rely heavily on our trusty breakfast shakes–they’re […]

Potato (not Radio) Pancakes


Potato pancakes have always been something of a mystery to me. I think I always just assumed they were like regular pancakes, but made with some sort of potato flour…maybe a bit less sweet? For people with gluten allergies? It all stems back to my childhood. In my home town, there’s a restaurant called The […]

Tofu Momelette


So what makes this a “momelette” instead of an “omelette”? The letter ‘M’. I give this 9 points for looking awesome, 8 points for tasting awesome, and 6 points for being kind of like a traditional egg momelette, or “omelette”, if you will. We modified this recipe from VegWeb. Tofu Momelette 1 lb extra firm […]

Tofu MarkMuffins


Occasionally you have to scratch the unhealthy itch. Today, that itch was Egg McMuffins(tm). Well, my 10-year old conception of what an Egg McMuffin might be like. I guess, the itch was the word “McMuffin”. Because I wanted to use the word “MarkMuffin”. Now, this is a fairly easy itch to scratch–if you don’t mind […]
