Penne with Creamy Red Pepper Sauce + Southwest Tofu Scramble

Last week, I made two recipes from Blissful Bites, the Penne with Creamy Red Pepper Sauce (p. 145), and the Southwest Tofu Scramble (p. 52).

The penne was creamy comfort food.  I forgot how yummy red pepper sauce can be. I think I’ll be trying the recipe for Red Pepper-Cashew Spread (p. 115) soon!

I was inspired to try the tofu scramble while reading Integrative Nutrition by Joshua Rosenthal. Rosenthal suggests trying a “breakfast experiment” for a week. Each day you eat something different for breakfast: fresh fruit, fresh veggies, oatmeal, scrambled eggs, scrambled tofu, cold cereal, and a muffin + coffee). You’re supposed to notice how you feel right after you eat, and two hours later. It’s been an interesting experiment. So far, I’ve felt the most energetic after eating oatmeal.

What kind of breakfast makes you feel the best?

  1. Oatmeal is my favorite way to fuel in the morning. I’ll never forget the best bowl I’ve ever had. It was in Port Townsend, WA. The oatmeal was cooked for (x time period) with bananas, raisins, apples and nuts. It was just a bowl full of goodness :-) This was 17 years ago and I still remember it to this day!

  2. Ooooh. That’s sounds *really* good. Do you remember the name of the restaurant?
