Huevos Vegan Breakfast

Vegan Breakfast that is Not the Norm

Vegan Mexican Breakfast
Huevos Vegan Style

This is my favorite Breakfast Item on the menu at Follow Your Heart Restaurant.  Only thing is how often do you go out for breakfast with only serving this until 11 AM.  I make it at home and change it around a little bit.

First off I always have beans made in my Pressure Cooke that I got on Amazon that works exactly as promised.

Since taking the eCornell course on Nutrition I always have tortillas on hand to make chips, Tacos or Huevos No Tanamos dishes.

Lunch Wraps – Tempeh with a Great Taste

Tempeh Wraps

It’s lunch time and you only eat a Plant Based Diet. Tired of the same boring salad to prepare?

I found this idea looking through Dr. Gregor’s How Not To Die CookBook Click here to get the book.
I changed it up some by adding what I had around the kitchen.

I made this with Chili Powder, White Pepper and Coriander mixed with 3 cloves of

chopped garlic.

I put some avocado and Green Salsa on this as the finishing touches. It was so good!

Here is my Version of the Tempeh Vera Cruz Lettuce Wraps.

Makes 2-4 Servings Depending on how hungry you are and if you add more veggies.

 

Plain Tempeh 8 ounces, diced

2 t chili powder

2 t coriander

1/2 t white pepper

3 cloves garlic minced

1 or 2 jalapeno’s cut up

1/2 Tomato chopped

5 or 6 T of nori cut up

1 Avocado

12 butter lettuce leaves – or can use tortilla wraps

Start by steaming the cut up tempeh for 15 minutes.

While tempeh cooking mix the spices in a bowl.

Heat 1/4 Cup of water in large skillet and cook the garlic

for a few minutes to soften. Add the nori, tomatoes,

jalapeno for 5 minutes to soften. Add seasonings and

tempeh cook for approximately 5 minutes and add

a little water if it evaporates.

Spoon on lettuce leaves and add a little avocado on each lettuce leaf

plus salsa. If you wish add some chopped cilantro.

This recipe will contribute to a serving of beans from the

Daily Dozen Requirement App.

Just made this today and the two others I shared it

with were very impressed.
