Sunday Vegan Brunch and Mini Muffins

Tofu scramble with super firm tofu, cherry tomatoes, cremini mushrooms, spinach, asparagus and garlic. I just wanted it chock full of veggies, so I didn't add much other than a sprinkle of nooch, sea salt and pepper, maybe some oregano.


Truth be told, I'm actually not a huge fan of tofu scramble, but nonetheless I sometimes crave it at home. I certainly liked it and eat it out on a regular basis, but really it's often the only vegan option at some of my favorite brunch spots.

I was never a big egg eater either, but the egg plate standard is in my head from society, like going to IHOP and growing up going to diners all the time - eat a plate of eggy looking food with toast and salty meat and call it breakfast! Ah, I love tempeh bacon, and my grandparents, who could do two diners a day, no sweat.

Anyway, this was all from our Sunday brunch this past weekend. I slept in, didn't want to spend money, and decided to cook the late morning away. I made the scramble, heated up some frozen Gardenburger sausages, sprinkled some cinnamon on apple slices, roasted red potatoes with whole cloves of garlic and made these half whole wheat, half regular flour Vegan with a Vengeance biscuits:

Later on Sunday I made these PPK/Veganomican test kitchen (mini) apple bran muffins. I thought they were almost too cute to eat. This time next post, I hope to show my new pots and pans in all their glory, plus a test kitchen meal and me finally conquering vegan crepes.

I'm not a big fan of tofu scramble, either. Id rather eat a bowl of grits.

Cute mini-muffins. I should break my mini-muffin pan out and put it to use.

Cute muffins! And maybe ones my weird kids would eat.

Give them eggplant and they're all over it - but sweet little muffins and they turn up their collective veggie noses...

That looks like the best breakfast, ever.

I definitely agree that breakfast food RULES!! So yummy... the savories, the sweeties, the fruit, the warm beverages, the starches - ah! such indulgence!

KleoPatra said...

Your biscuits look like little chickens! Or am i just seeing things, Jess?

I adore the plate that the sausage burgers are on. And i can make up for any non-excitement you may have for the tofu scramble. I may be its biggest proponent! Yours looks tremendous!

That's a gorgeous Sunday brunch from the weekend... And your mini muffins are soooo cute!!!

Vegan crepes? I MUST SEE!!

The plate the "sausages" are on is awesome! Love the fun colors and design. What a wonderful assortment of food you made for brunch :) .

Kati said...

Yes, breakfast food is the best! I've gotten into the habit over the last few weeks of making breakfast for dinner on Sunday night. Pancakes and potatoes mostly (even homemade hashbrowns last week, which actually turned out well) - I love the starchiness. Those mini muffins are really sweet, especially with the oats scattered on top. Nice touch!

Kate said...

Yum yum! I have never had tofu scramble before but the muffins look fantastic!
