Puttanesca Tofu Scramble

Puttanesca Tofu Scramble

After Debra of Breathelighter made the Puttanesca Tofu Scramble from our March VegCookbook, Vegan Brunch, she shared in the comments that she, “totally devoured it.”

I made it tonight, and we devoured it too.  Yum! I’m already a big fan of puttanesca flavors (tomato, olives, capers), and tofu is such a good absorber of flavors, it’s a perfect combo. I didn’t include the full 1/2 teaspoon of recommended red pepper flakes ’cause I’m a spicy whimp, but it still had some kick after adding a few shakes from the red pepper flake bottle.
If you don’t have a copy of Vegan Brunch, you can see the Puttanesca Tofu Scramble recipe on Isa’s site, Post Punk Kitchen.

I had to put the weekly round-up up tonight, rather than on Monday, when I usually do. I’m sorry if I missed anyone who was waiting to post their photos, posts, or comments on Monday. I’ll be sure to include you in next week’s round-up.

What did you VegCook last week?

Don’t forget to vote in the poll for April’s VegCookbook.

Banana Rabanada + Smoothie Supreme from Vegan Brunch

bananas rabanada and smootie supreme

It was another busy week, so I did all of my VegCookbook cooking for the week this morning! I made the hubs and I the Banana Rabanada (Brazilian French Toast) and the Smoothies Supreme. Both were delicious!
The Banana Rabanada was particularly yummy. Who would think to blend bananas, corn starch, vanilla, and almond milk to create a french toast soaking mixture. Sooooo good. You definitely don’t want to make your slices bigger than the recommended  1 inch, so that the bread soaks up all the banana goodness. The recipe called for a stale baguette, do I bought one on Friday morning and used it today (Monday), which worked great.

March 2013 Cookbook: Vegan Brunch by Isa Chandra Moskowitz

Vegan BrunchIt was a tight race this time, but the winner of the March 2013 VegCookbook Club poll is, Vegan Brunch: Homestyle Recipes Worth Waking Up  For — From Asparagus Omelets to Pumpkin Pancakes by Isa Chandra Moskowitz

I like the description of brunch she has on her website:

“Breakfast is whatever we eat first thing in the morning, but brunch is an event. More than any other meal, brunch seems to have a purpose in our lives that isn’t just about the food being served. It’s a time to catch up with friends. Time to slow down. Time to hatch great plans, to get all hyped up on coffee, and say dumb stuff that haunts you for the rest of your life.”

You can learn more about Isa on her website, Post Punk Kitchen, follow her on Twitter at @isachandra, and join her Post Punk Kitchen Facebook Page.

If you’re new to the VegCookbook Club, you can read about how to participate on the VegCookbook Club About page.

I’m looking forward to cooking through Vegan Brunch with you in March, and to hearing about what you cooked from our February VegCookbook, Color Me Vegan, on Monday. Have a great weekend!
