It’s time for another installment of What Vegans Eat. In this series, I share my breakfast, lunch, and dinner from one ordinary day. These meals are from this past Saturday…
I had such a fun weekend! It feels like spring is finally here, and I was able to get out and really enjoy it. Saturday was the first day of the farmers market, and that always makes the end of winter feel official.
Before the market, while I had coffee and cuddled Jezebel, David made breakfast. He whipped up a tofu scramble with bell peppers, onions, garlic, mushrooms, and kale. On the side, roasted potatoes and blackberries.
The next day we stuffed the leftover scramble and potatoes into breakfast burritos.
Oftentimes after a particularly cold winter, there won’t be much at that first farmers market – just some plants, baked goods, and jams. However, this year winter was mild, and there was plenty to buy. It makes me excited about the weeks to come when more and more fresh produce pops up. You can really taste the freshness in food from the farmers market. Not only does it pop with flavor, it also lasts longer in the refrigerator if you don’t get to it right away, because it didn’t spend any time on a truck or grocery store shelf.
We picked up a couple bags of spinach, two bunches of asparagus, and chives.
For lunch, I roasted one of the bunches of asparagus, and we had it with a romaine lettuce salad and buffalo cauliflower. The buffalo cauliflower recipe is from Kittee, and I drizzled it with Follow Your Heart ranch.
After lunch we went on a long hike, did some work around the house, and then decided to grill out for dinner.
David and I have different opinions on the best veggie burger for grilling. He likes the Gardein beefless burger, and I’m all about the Field Roast hand formed burger (above). I like the juicy, fatty quality of the burger and the way it gets a little crisp around the edges when it grills. David loves the chargrilled flavor of the Gardein burger. We make this work by getting both kinds of burgers, and then we can each have the one we prefer. On the side, we had tortilla chips, and I made salsa and guacamole to go with it.
I have to share one more highlight from the weekend. On Sunday, we got a new piece of cat furniture for the kitties. We barely made it inside the front door before they claimed it. I think it’s a hit!
