tofu egg

Teriyaki Tofu and Eggs: The other week I posted a breakfast that used tofu and eggs, but here’s a great exercise in touring the pantry and making the same base boosted with very different flavor. 

For a 1 lb package of firm tofu, drained and cubed

  • 2 TBSP low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 TBSP rice vinegar
  • ½ TSBP molasses
  • ½ TBSP minced ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced 

That’s it! Marinate it overnight and sear it over a high heat the next morning. I served it with 2 eggs over easy and found this bag of chopped vegetables for $1 that sounded insanely nutritious. Topped with a bit of chili and we have a very different breakfast using the same eggs and tofu I use so often. 

Sorry guys that I always post this sandwich, but I love it soooooo much. I promise I’ll stop, just after this pic of it, haha! These curried “egg” (tofu), salad and mayonnaise brioche sandwiches are the best thing, I’m going to miss them so much when I go to Europe!

I only recently had tofu scramble for the first time and I highly recommend😋 not only is it a great cruelty-free alternative to scrambled eggs, but also packed with protein + calcium without all the cholesterol, saturated fat and hormones you’d get with eggs🌿✔️✔️ tofu-mushroom-leek scramble with crispy baked potato + sweet potato, cherry tomatoes and greens👌🏼 #eatmoreplants

The food printer is an appliance from Runaway to the Stars, used a lot in spaceships for ready-made “foodlike” products. It’s not good at making anything that cannot be recreated as a smooth paste or slurry, so it mostly gets used for stuff like bread, tofu, sausage, egg, juice, porridge, chips, and etc. The products are usually pretty junky… ie., high carbs, high fat, and over-seasoned to compensate for slightly ‘off’ flavor and texture. The very fancy ones can make a wider variety of food pastes cooked in more interesting ways than baked/fried, but they’re bloody expensive and only found on huge ships or in space ports. Smaller ships usually also have a huge freezer and a regular kitchen, so they can stock up on better, tastier food at ports. The Staraways crew has a HumBugBird model for feeding their coed crew, and Talita has her personal centaur food printer that she’s owned and eaten from for the majority of her life. Someone…. get this poor girl some real meat…

I’m a biologist, not an engineer, so this is my best shot at drawing one. If anyone with more experience in this area wants to talk about scifi appliances, feel free to hit me up.

Had a bagel with grilled zucchini and eggplant, fresh cut tomatoes, salad, hot sauce and  yoghurt sauce. I also had scrambled tofu “egg” and tomatoes. :)

Meal Planning Week of 2-19-17

Breakfasts: My go to lately has been marinated tofu with eggs over easy. Protein bomb in the AM. 
Lunches: I’m making something I call my “superfood” vegetarian chili. I don’t really do the whole superfood thing, but I call it that because I’ve seriously stuffed just about every color and major micronutrient in there. 
Dinners: I’m making an experiment. Doing this green curried fish stew idea I concocted. Chilies, lemongrass, ginger, limes, Asian vegetables, etc. More on that later! Also going to make a beet and potato mash we can put over some spinach. We have some veggie burgers left over in the freezer and I figured that would be their side dish. 
Snacks: Grapes were $.88/lb! WHAT!? Definitely grabbed some of those. Also got my beloved bananas.

My boyfriend lives near one of the best vegan bakeries in Melbourne, which means I can buy my favourite curried “egg” (tofu) salad sandwich and eat it with some homemade salad (capsicum, carrots and mushrooms, all raw)
