Yummy Vegan Breakfasts

Happy 2008! How embarrassing that the month is nearly over and this is my first post of the year. I’ve just been super-duper busy. I’ve been cooking and baking and thrifting but haven’t had a chance to blog.

How about some breakfast foods? Here are some of the yummy breakfasts we’ve been enjoying:

Pancakes! (with whipped Earth Balance and maple syrup). This is a picture of Rob’s plate. I actually don’t eat my pancakes with maple syrup. I don’t eat my waffles with syrup either. Some Earth Balance and some mixed fruit jam is what I like on them. Ok, ok, and by mixed fruit jam I mean I mix several American Spoon jams up myself to create my the perfect “mixed fruit” jam. We only eat American Spoon jam, even if it is a Michigan product. In case you are wondering, our place in Michigan (Metro Detroit) is still for sale, so it’s not exactly my favorite place in the world at the moment. Wow, what a way to get off topic, huh? Now you know why my co-workers don’t dare mention the word Michigan to me. LOL


I tried the tofu scramble recipe from VwaV. It was tasty and I served it with some fried potatoes, rye toast, and orange juice.

I’ve been on a banana bread kick lately. I’ve been trying out a bunch of different recipes for it. I really like the one from The Compassionate Cook, which is one my favorite vegan cookbooks. You can find the recipe for the banana bread here. Instead of margarine, I used Earth Balance. I sent a care package to my parents and grandma recently and I included several pieces of banana bread. Of course, baking your banana bread in vintage Pyrex is a must!!!!

And last but not least, a chocolate chip scone along with some raspberry earl grey tea from Tealuxe. I think vintage snack sets make dessert, err, breakfast, much more fun!

Hope you have a wonderful day. I’ll be posting some of my thrifty finds soon.

    Love the look of your blog!

    BTW, the tofu scramble looks delicious! I haven’t done one of those in quite a while – this inspires me to actually make breakfast soon.

    Thanks for the great pics! Hope you don’t mind if I add you to my blogroll…

It was unbelievably tasty. Not dry, totally flavorful, just perfect! Thanks for sending me that gift tin of so many sweet treats. Thank you for being so wonderful. i cherish our friendship… K

    Those pancakes are so thick, they look super yummy. =) Breakfast is the best meal of the day in my opinion. So it’s great to see you make the best of it!

    Great to see your post Emmy! Hope you’re doing well.

    Your choc-chip scone looks delicious….could you post the recipe when you have time? Or tell me if it’s in someone’s cookbook?

    Thanks, Nancy

    It’s good to have you back, Emmy! Your food looks wonderful, as always. I know what you mean- a lot of times, I like maple syrup on my pancakes, but just as often, I like honey/agave, cinnamon sugar, jams, or nut butters.

  • Emmie February 13, 2008, 5:26 am

    Woah, how do you get your pancakes that THICK? I need to know the secret! What recipe/cookbook?

    The food all looks great, I love the vwav tofu scramble but my partner doesn’t care for it much so I rarely make it. I have huge cravings for it now though.

    Just dropping in to say hi! I like the new blog background. Breakfast foods are definitely some of my favorite things.

    What a cute little tea/snack set!

  • atxvegn February 16, 2008, 6:41 pm

    I love that little snack set. And the scone! Those pancakes are lovely. Makes me wish I ate breakfast.

  • Jackie February 18, 2008, 1:51 am

    Great breakfasts they all look great but the pancakes best of all. I have gone mad on buckwheat pancakes lately.

    For the first post of the year, I gotta say that was one helluva post! I need to get to bed but now I’m already craving breakfast.

  • Kati February 22, 2008, 2:13 pm

    I’ve been MIA, too, so don’t feel bad about taking a break from the blog!

    I know you mentioned a long time ago that you don’t like the color of your counter tops, but I think it’s kind of neat how they match your plates. 🙂

  • VeggieGirl February 22, 2008, 4:49 pm
