Vegan Omelette for One

I've never been a big breakfast eater. In fact, most of the time I skip breakfast and don't even miss it. Lately, I've been trying to change my ways since finding out that people who eat breakfast are less likely to be overweight than people who skip it. In addition to speeding up your metabolism, eating breakfast has also been shown to improve your memory. I've decided to become a breakfast person.

I have found traditional breakfasts foods (I.e. Oatmeal, cereal, fruit, etc.) leave me less than satisfied. I'm immediately hungry for more. And again at 10:00. And again at 12:00! (what's new, right?) However, non-traditional breakfast foods (i.e. edamame, chickpeas, even leftovers from dinner, etc.) that balance carbs with proteins keep me satisfied, but not stuffed, for hours.

If you loved my Mini Crustless Quiches, you'll love this because it's based on that one. But unlike the quiches, the omelette takes literally minutes to prepare, if you already have the filling made. Fill it with whatever tickles your fancy (for dinner try vegan pepperoni, pizza sauce and soy cheese).




What you need:
1/2 package of silken tofu
1 Tbs. soymilk
1 Tbs. nutritional yeast
1 Tbs. cornstarch
Onion powder
Turmeric
Salt

Also needed:
Filling of your choice (warm or room temp)

What to do:

Blend together all ingredients until smooth.

Pour batter into the center of a large non stick skillet (medium high). Use a spatula to smooth over the top. Place your filling over the batter and reduce heat to low.

Cover and cook until edges have dried out, lift a small section to see if it's set. When it has, loosen the omelette by sliding the spatula under it from each direction and then fold one side over the other.

Cook for about one more minute. Slide it onto a plate.

I wanted to include veggies in my breakfast, so I filled my omelette with broccoli that sautéed beforehand. I included chopped green onions in the batter after I blended it and used green onions as a garnish. I also topped my omelette with a little of the Chipotle Remoulade left over from my Not-So-Krabby Patties.

It was out of this world!

RESTAURANT REVIEW: Firenza

...

I’m not gonna lie to you my pizza was very bomb but everything else was very not.

Firenza (located in downtown Boise) looks, feels, and acts like a corporate fast food franchise because it is a corporate fast food franchise but it’s a corporate fast food franchise that offers vegan pizza, and if it wasn’t for the damn up-charges it would be, on the cheap. 

My guests and I walked through the front door of Firenza (which was kinda hard to find to be honest) and I immediately got thrown back to my high school cafeteria and not in a pleasant way. Imagine bare white walls and what looks like a giant high school logo painted over a pizza assembly line. 
We approached the pizza assembly line and I immediately told the staff member who welcomed us that this was our first time visiting the restaurant and asked for guidance. They said ok and blankly stared at us until I eventually broke the awkward silence and started asking about vegan options. 
The sauces on the menu were clearly marked as veg…

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…
