Savory Tofu Scramble Breakfast Tacos

Screen Shot 2018-07-08 at 1.00.18 PM
“This recipe goes out to all the morning scramble fanatics. It captures the color, texture and buttery deliciousness of scrambled eggs, but it’s completely plant-based, gluten-free and nutrient loaded with spices like turmeric and nutritional yeast.” ~Tasha


  • 1 12 oz pkg of extra firm organic tofu, diced in scramble-sized pieces
  • “I feel like a broken record preaching the many qualities of tofu, but seriously, it’s awesome: it’s high in protein (10 g protein per serving compared to 6 g protein per serving of egg), high in fiber (4 g per serving compared to 0 g per serving of egg) and high in Omega 3’s (400-2,000 mg compared to 180-600 mg per serving).” ~Tasha

  • 2 T nutritional yeast
  • 2-4 T olive oil
  • 1 t turmeric
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1 t onion powder
  • 1/2 t black pepper
  • 1/2 t cumin
  • 1/2 t coriander
  • 1/2 t paprika
  • 3/4 t salt
  • 1/2 c red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 c red bell pepper, chopped (optional)
  • 1 can organic black beans, drained (optional for extra fiber and protein)
  • vegan shredded cheese (optional)


  1. In a pan, heat up 2 T olive oil on medium-high heat. Add red onion, sauté 3-5 minutes or until translucent, stirring often.
  2. Add tofu and spices, stirring often for 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add red bell peppers, cook for about 2-3 minutes, adding olive oil if needed.
  4. Turn off heat, adding vegan cheese to melt.
  5. Add beans to tofu and mix until warm, or add into burrito separately.
  6. In a separate pan heat up 1 T olive oil on medium-high and warm up corn tortillas to desired color.
  7. Load up tacos and ENJOY!

#meatlessmonday Week #27 Summer BBQ

untitled (1 of 1)
“Summer smells! We had such a great family BBQ with our three oldest kids and their people! We have lots of diet stuff with Vegans and Gluten Free-ers but it doesn’t stop us one bit from throwing together a super summer BBQ.” ~Tanya Rose

Summer BBQ

Corn On The Cob



  • 8 cobs of corn


Corn on the COB! Do you like yours in the husk? OR no way, get that stuff away! We leave the husk on. I trim the ends and soak them in water for 20 minutes before they go on the grill. Rotate cobs periodically as they steam in their husks. Yum!

Shishito Peppers



  • shishito peppers
  • sesame oil
  • salt & black pepper


Shishito pepper season is back! MMMmmm! We LOVE this randomly spicy pepper at our house. There wasn’t a ton of room on the grill so these guys went in the frying pan. I keep it simple, sesame oil is so yummy with these. That and some salt and pepper is all they need! Sear a bit and that’s it, VOILÀ!

Zucchini & Yellow Squash


  • zucchini
  • yellow squash
  • oil
  • seasonings


Zucchini and yellow squash are also perfect grillers. I like to toss them with my favorite oil and seasonings, make a little tin foil ‘boat’ and throw them on the grill. I’m all about sesame oil and the kids love teriyaki, so we went SoyVey.



  • portobellos


I also love how great portobellos are on the grill. They hold flavors so well and are AMAZING in a sandwich or on top of a salad! What’s not to love about summer? So many great fresh food options! BON APPÉTIT!

Vegan Beet Burgers



  • 2 pkgs pre cooked organic beets
  • 1 t garlic
  • dry onions, chopped
  • 1/2 c walnuts, finely chopped
  • 1 can black lentils
  • 1 can black beans
  • seasonings of choice
  • salt and black pepper


  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together, mashing the beets in.
  3. Adjust the amount of walnuts to create a consistency that can be spooned onto the parchment paper.
  4. Lightly press to patties and bake until golden brown, carefully flipping to brown the other side.

Happy 4th of July! xoxo

#meatlessmonday Week #25 Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers

Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers

Screen Shot 2018-06-25 at 1.53.49 PM
Julia’s Sweet Potato Veggie Burger is definitely a yummy somethin’ somethin’ to keep in mind for the 4th of July, it’s only a couple weeks away!


  • 1 medium sized sweet potato, roasted
  • 1/2 c brown rice, uncooked
  • 3 T oat flower
  • 1/2 c lightly packed fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 t ground cumin
  • 2 t chili powder
  • 1 t sea salt


  1. Using a fork, poke several holes into a sweet potato, wrap it in foil and roast it in the oven for about 50-60 minutes, until it’s very soft.
  2. While potato is cooking, prepare the brown rice by following the instructions on your packaging. You will need 1 1/2 c cooked brown rice, which is about 1/2 c dry.
  3. When the potato is cool enough to handle, chop it into thirds, add it to a blender or food processor and blend until completely smooth.
  4. Add the potato puree, cooked rice and the remaining ingredients to a medium sized mixing bowl and mix to combine.
  5. If possible, refrigerate the mixture prior to cooking as it is easier to form burger patties after refrigeration. The mixture may be sticky depending on the size of your sweet potato and this is perfectly fine.
  6. Form 3-4 veggie burger patties out of the sweet potato mixture. Add enough oil to a cast iron skillet to cover the bottom. Heat the skillet to medium high. Carefully place burger patties on hot skillet and allow them to cook until a nice crisp forms and the sides begin to turn color, about 3-4 minutes.
  7. Very carefully flip the patties onto the other side and cook until the other side has a nice crisp and the patties have firmed up a bit, about another 3-4 minutes.
  8. Serve the patties with your favorite toppings, such as tomato, avocado, onion, spring green mix and your favorite sauce.

#meatlessmonday Week #19 Homegrown Gastropub

Third Stop…

Homegrown Gastropub

Our third stop is Homegrown Gastropub in Midtown!

“Gastropub is the newest vegan hotspot! There’s a wide variety of options for those looking for meat substitutions or those looking for simple vegan dishes. I love the indoor and outdoor dining options, especially since it’s almost summer! This weekend I went with the hubs and we ordered Vegan Breakfast Tacos and Vegan Eggs Benedict.

We are loving sharing these local, vegan-friendly places with you! It’s AMAZING to live in a community where you can find awesome, cruelty-free food.

I often hear, “It’s so hard to find food to eat. It’s a real struggle. Where do you eat? What do you eat?” This is where I eat; this is what I eat. Maybe I’ll see you there next time!” ~Tanya Rose

#meatlessmonday Week #18 Laughing Planet


Second Stop…

Laughing Planet

Our second stop is Laughing Planet on South Virginia (super close to UNR for all our college peeps!!).

“The fact that Laughing Planet has vegan soup gets me in the door. They ALWAYS have a House-Made Veggie Chili and often another vegan option as well. The Highway to Kale Salad with the vegan cheese is the BOMB! When I am extra starving and need food NOW, the chips and salsa is a life saver. Red, Green and Mango Habanero are all AMAZING. I also have to shout out their fresh squeezed juices AND! DO NOT miss the Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie, it’s life.” ~Tanya Rose


P.S. The Marionberry Ginger Smoothie is also really good! xoxo
