Ultimate oatmeal recipe

A healthy day starts with breakfast. It is important to eat something sustaining in the morning. Following are some of our favorite vegan breakfast choices. But first, here are some pointers you can use regardless of whether you eat your morning meal at home or out. Keep in mind that while there are some dishes that are thought of as typical breakfast fare, in fact most foods that are good for you are good for you at any time of day.  more→


Simple Sautéed Tempeh Strips

These tasty strips are good with pancakes, on a sandwich or wrapped in a corn tortilla, or served over a cooked grain, such as brown rice, millet, quinoa, or kasha. Prepare with wheat-free soy sauce if you want them to be gluten-free. more→


Vegan Soy Sausage Links

The perfect vegan sausage and an excellent accompaniment to our pancakes or French toast. Depending on your time schedule, there are three options for preparation: the mixture can be prepared and cooked immediately; refrigerated uncooked for several days; or cooked, refrigerated and then reheated for serving.  more→

Vegetable Tofu Scramble

Ultimate Oatmeal

Ultimate oatmeal

Ultimate Oatmeal provides an excellent example of how easy it is to upgrade familiar dishes. Here oats are enhanced with oat bran, wheat germ and flaxseed. The recipe is purposely proportioned to produce a thick porridge that can handle a generous amount of soy milk. If a thinner cereal is preferred, add additional freshly boiled water at the end as needed.   more→


All-in-One Breakfast Shake

Cereal, soy and fruit in one easy-to-fix and easy-to-enjoy package. You can add variety with your choice of juice and by altering the fruit with the season, replacing banana with a very ripe pear, large peach or ¾ cup sweet berries.  more→
