day#20: who doesn't like brinner?

weirdos, that's who. there's nothing like breakfast for dinner, and you cannot convince me otherwise. i'll also happily eat a burger for breakfast too.

i'm pretty picky about my tofu scrambles and only have really enjoyed one other recipe for it outside of my own. i used to attend michigan womyn's music festival and the scramble they made there was amazing. i quit going for reasons of activism, they have a policy that only "womyn born womyn" may attend which is wrong in my book. but this ain't no activism blog-( tenting fingers--or is it?) this is a food blog. i'll happily discuss gender politics with y'all in another forum, if you'd like.

this variation of my scramble is dedicated to tofulish. i really, really, really like her. she's the kind of person that makes you think about things outside of the box in a way that isn't argumentative which is a fine art to practice. i paired the scramble with a blend of roasted potatoes and a whole wheat bagel. i shall call this the legal eagle brinner.

to make the scramble:

  • 1 pkg super firm tofu, drained
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 5-6 cloves of roasted garlic, smooshed
  • 1/4 c. mustard
  • 1T miso
  • pinch of pepper
  • 1 t braggs
  • 6-8 sun dried tomatoes, cut into thin strips with kitchen shears

with a T of olive oil, saute onions. in a mixing bowl, mash the other ingredients together with gloved or clean bare hands into a smooshy ricotta cheese like texture. make sure this is mixed well. put mixture into skilled with sauteed onions and cook until warm and browned. serve with your favorite carby sides and enjoy.

I tend to do pancakes for brinner but I salute your scramble.

I too am a great fan of breakfast-for-dinner. I consider it to be one of the greatest advantages of adulthood.
