Oh man now you can not even Scrambled eggs eat! What? Of course I can, but just without chicken egg. At first it also seemed a little strange to me, since I was used to eating egg for years. I loved it in all variations, whether scrambled or soft boiled. Since my conversion to vegan food I can hardly believe it, but eggs no longer taste good to me. The body needs some time to adapt to the new eating habits and suddenly everything goes very easily.

Shawarma Scrambled Tofu

But now for this excellent dish. Perhaps you can remember my penultimate post which was. Shawarma spice mix . That’s when I got the idea? Why not just use it as a spice blend for a flavorful scrambled Tofu use. Short hand I tried it and it tastes great.

Served with delicious, crispy fried Potatoes . The trick if you’re short on time on the day of the event? Boil the potatoes the day before or prepare them in the steamer. This saves a hell of a lot of time and you can get started right away. The whole thing is rounded off with vegetables. I opted for bell peppers, kale and green onion. Not only tastes good, but also fits very well visually.

Here’s some more information about kale and why it’s so healthy:

  • Has more vitamin K than any other vegetable (healthy bone formation)
  • Contains twice as much vitamin C as lemons
  • More calcium than in cow’s milk
  • Omega-3 fatty acids
  • Very high iron and protein content

Of course, this is only a small sample of the benefits of kale, the main thing is not to cook it too long and too hot. Steam briefly and enjoy! In this way, the valuable micronutrients are all preserved.

Let’s continue with our hearty vegan breakfast. A perfect match for example. 1-Bowl Walnut Banana Pancakes , a creamy Chocolate Chia Smoothie Toast and of course lots of fresh fruit (for me, coffee must not be missing at brunch). Well, now we have everything together for a great vegan brunch with friends and family. I would say it’s ready to go.

  • hearty
