Vegan Easter Brunch

My family isn’t super religious, but we always celebrate the Christian biggies, like Christmas and Easter. I find it a bit awkward this holiday, sitting at home alone working on graduate statistics. I decided to get a little more festive and ran around town today to see what was open. After grabbing a few necessities, I headed home to make this awesome brunch of fruit, toast with jam, skillet fried potatoes and a cheesy tofu scramble. I didn’t use any fancy recipes, just threw everything together and tasted as I went. Below is my best attempt at putting recipes together for the scramble and taters. Happy Easter to those celebrating and Happy Sunday to those who aren’t šŸ™‚

Easy, Cheesy Scramble

  • 1 block extra firm tofu, pressed
  • 1/2 tube of *Teese mildly spicy cheese
  • seasonings to taste (I added some Tabasco andĀ garlic and onion powder)
  1. Break the tofu into small crumbles and cook on med-high heat
  2. As water evaporates, add seasonings and TeeseĀ (*This was my first time trying TeeseĀ out. It’s alright. I think it’s pretty gross on its own, but heated up in a wrap, as a dip, or in scrambles works nicely)
  3. Cook until hot and liquid has evaporated

Skillet Fried Potatoes

  • 3 baby red potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 green pepper, diced
  • 1/4 yellow onion, diced
  1. Start by frying the onion and pepper in a generous amount of oil
  2. Once soft, after about 5 minutes or so, add potatoes. Cook and as they start to brown, cover. Stir every so often, add water if necessary to prevent sticking
