October is the Vegan Month of Food, y'all! VeganMoFo bloggers will write, eat, sleep, and breathe vegan food for the month. Check out the Post Punk Kitchen for details so you can follow all the fun.
First up at Show Me Vegan is tofu scramble. This dish holds a special place in my heart. If St. Louis is the Gateway to the West, for me, tofu scramble was the Gateway to Veganism.
When I was considering veganism, I wanted a replacement for our Saturday morning breakfast burrito. The burrito had become a ritual that said to us, "woo-hoo, the weekend's here!" Tofu scramble fit the bill, chock full of vegetables, spices, and perfect for stuffing a burrito.
Pretty much any Saturday, you can find us enjoying the Vegan with a Vengeance tofu scramble recipe. I've mentioned that we like to add baby spinach and soyrizo. It's delicious sprinkled with jalapenos, wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla, and dressed with salsa or avocado.
I'd love to hear if you also have a recipe that was your "gateway to veganism". Maybe a dish that replaced a non-vegan one that you were attached to for some reason.
Last year's VeganMoFo gave me plenty of tips and motivation for becoming vegan. Time to see what inspiration other VeganMoFo'ers are bringing to the party!
