This is pretty easy as you basically cook up some veggies and put them inside a folded shredded hash brown layer. You can put whatever veggies you like in there.

Ingredients (use whatever veggies you like):

Chunky breakfast potatoes no oil

Chunky Breakfast Potatoes

tofu scramble and breakfast potatoes

Ingredients:

4-5 medium potatoes
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp Italian herb seasoning (oregano/basil) – use more to coat the fries as desired
1 tsp Lawry’s seasoning salt (optional)

Wash 4-5 medium potatoes and cut into chunks, enough to cover a 11×17″ baking tray. Put pieces into a bowl and mix with the spices above so everything is coated. The spices will stick to the potatoes since they are a bit wet inside and starchy. Bake at 450 degrees F on a non-stick baking tray no oil or spray for half an hour or more until browning and crispy. I do up to 40 minutes many times to get them really crispy. You can put down a layer of parchment paper as well. I usually eat this with my tofu scramble recipe.

My Daily Oatmeal Breakfast – Plant-Based Lifestyle

Ingredients:

* 1 cup of rolled oats (not instant oats)
* 2 cups water
* 1/4 cup Grape Nuts for crunch (if I have them)
* 1 tbsp ground flaxseed (optional for omega 3)
* 1 cup banana milk (or you can use unsweetened almond milk or some other non-dairy milk)
* 1/2-1 cup defrosted from frozen strawberries

Instructions:

Cook oatmeal as per instructions on the bag (I microwave the oats and water for 5 minutes). I like mine cool so I put it in the fridge to cool for an hour. Add the flaxseed and Grape Nuts (if using), as well as the strawberries (or berries of choice). Blend a ripe banana with 1/2-1 cup of water until blended. Should only take 5 seconds or so. Pour milk on oatmeal.

If you prefer warm oatmeal, slice the banana on top and don’t make the banana milk. I eat this almost every day!

Note: Cereals are whole wheat based without many ingredients in Canada and hopefully you can find them as well. Strawberries are fresh in season and frozen the rest of the year. I buy frozen sliced strawberries and put them in a container in the fridge the night before to thaw, which creates juices.

Easy Banana Milk Recipe

easy banana milk

Ingredients:
1 ripe banana, any size
1/2 cup of cold filtered water (more if required to thin out)

Blend banana with water on high for a few seconds until blended using Vitamix or similar blender. So easy! Add water if it’s too thick and blend again. Most likely doesn’t store well (will oxidize) so use right away as a drink or my favourite on my cereal.

What I Ate For Breakfast

I eat this 7 days a week.

Tofu Scramble

Bonnie’s recipe. I love this recipe! It tastes so much like scrambled eggs it’s incredible.

tofu scramble

Ingredients

1/2 yellow onion diced
1/2 green bell pepper diced
1/2 red bell pepper diced
1 cup of spinach (optional)
1 block extra firm tofu, drained and pressed
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tomato diced
Ketchup (as desired)

Instructions

Slice tofu into cubes then squeeze out water with towel, break up with fork/hands to crumble it. Sauté onion and peppers for 3-5 minutes (no oil, we use a little water to fry onion/pepper). When the peppers are almost cooked add in the spinach if using and cook for a minute or 2 (it will shrink). Add tofu and remaining ingredients, reduce heat to medium to cook 5-7 minutes. Eat with chopped tomatoes and/or ketchup. Put in warmed tortilla wrap if desired as well. This is the no oil/cheese version. Eat with some toast, chunky potatoes or hashbrowns.
