Classic Tofu Scramble

There are some dishes that are such staples, you could make them with your eyes closed. Tofu scramble is that dish for me. I KNOW, soo basic. But soo good. Just like avocado toast, tofu scramble is a vegan breakfast classic, loved by all. I told y’all, my body is in need of the hearty basics after all the crazy indulgences at the Houston Vegandale Festival.

Tofu scramble was the first thing my mom ever taught me in the kitchen. She likes to make hers a bit on the salty side, because we would usually eat it with plain white rice. SO GOOD. It’s a staple that stands the test of time. Last year, one of my vegan friends told me that my tofu scramble back in high school actually introduced her to vegan food. High school was at least 10 years ago…I was so touched!! Omnivores have told me that this scramble even rivals the one at a certain beloved vegan diner around these parts (Spiral Diner, I still love you and your migas; don’t come for me, hahaha). My cousin Jackie is also obsessed with my tofu scramble and has always asked me exactly how I make it, so I made a Highlight about it on my Instagram to share the process; check it out here!

It’s high time I had a post on here dedicated to this beloved classic. My sister Anna and I often find ourselves making a huge batch of tofu scramble every week or so, especially when we find tofu on sale for 25 cents a box! Yes, that happened this weekend, and we bought ten boxes. My mom was so proud, but she said we should’ve gotten 20. #asianmoms

Tofu scramble is satisfying, quick, and packed with nutrients and protein. And it’s so easy to pack in veggies and customize it to your liking! You can make it so many different ways, depending on your mood. Tofu scramble is THE most versatile dish in any vegan’s repertoire. Everyone’s got their own way of making it, and here’s mine! Lately, I’ve been obsessed with lemon pepper and I put it in everything. It really brightens up a tofu scramble! Continue reading

Harry Potter Butterbeer Macaroons // The Plant Philosophy Collab

ICYMI, Margaret (The Plant Philosophy) and I have been getting magical in the kitchen with some Harry Potter themed treats, including Polyjuice Potion and Felix Felicis Potion!

 

Last week when Margaret and I got together to collaborate on more Harry Potter recipes, we had some issues with our initial recipe ideas. Plus there was a torrential downpour most of the day, so we struggled to get good lighting for our photos. Maybe we would’ve had better luck with a sip of Felix Felicis. 😉

Bite-Sized Coconut Macaroon Nests

Say hello to the cutest dessert I’ve ever made, inspired by spring and nature!
Mini Coconut Macaroon Nests | plantcrush.coCrunchy on the outside, tender and chewy on the inside, these little coconut macaroon bites are best enjoyed soon after they’re taken out of the oven. They are decadent and delicate at the same time. To compliment the macaroons’ rich coconut flavor, I topped them with fresh juicy blueberries for some tart sweetness.

Green Pear Flatbread Pizza

Happy National Pi Day! Let’s celebrate with pie. Pizza’s a pie, right?
Green Pear Flatbread Pizza | plantcrush.co
Fragrant pear slices + savory cilantro pesto + a toasty herb crust. I’ve been dreaming of this green pizza. When the idea for this recipe formed, I was feeling in between two things: inspired by the color green and craving a friend’s beloved apple pizza. Pesto-based pizzas may be above classic pizzas in my book of flavor cravings.
