Before I make it to the office every morning, I ALWAYS eat a big ole' breakfast. Whether it's pancakes, scrambled tofu, steel cut oats, or cheezy grits, I make sure I get plenty of fuel to get me through the morning. One of my long-time favorite day-starters is a variation on Bernard's Brown Rice Breakfast from The Garden of Vegan:
It's just crumbled tofu and brown rice, seasoned with a little soy sauce or Bragg's, served atop sprouted grain toast and drizzled with flax seed oil and organic ketchup. It sounds weird, I know. But it's so darn good. I love the way the flax oil lightly soaks into the bread and melds with the ketchup. And I love that it's a protein/whole grain-packed breakfast to start the day off right.
I always make a big batch of the tofu-rice mixture and heat up a little each morning to serve over two slices of toast. This morning, I ate my Brown Rice Breakfast with a cup of iced green tea and a glass of fresh-squeezed orange-grapefruit juice. Yum!
