Vegan MoFo day 4 rewind, but it really happened this morning...

Never go to the grocery store hungry.


I finally heeded my own advice. I was all packed up with my reusuable grocery bag collection, shopping list, I'm even wearing leg warmers (don't worry, I already I know I'm a dork.) Then...I heard the familiar rumble. But I can make it. The store is minutes away and I only need a couple of things for my actual Sunday MoFo post...WRONG. You have the fixin's for tofu scramble burrito, now get to it. (I apparently talk to myself when I'm hungry.

Yes, I always have that mori-nu vacuum pack when all else fails, but I have real fridge tofu in there. Tortillas, check. Everything else, is really just bonus. That field roast chipotle sausage is super bonus. It's twisted up in the plastic casing in 4 parts, so even though I used the other two pieces ages ago, the remaining part is still factory sealed and is good until expiration. Woo-hoo!

I add quinoa and a whole bunch of hot water to my scramble. I'm angling for that whole level 7 vegan thing...

It may look like a big 'ole mess, but even with too much turmeric (makes the tofu look eggy-useful for tricking non-veg) it's smelling pretty awesome.

When the liquid is soaked up by the quinoa or just evaporates, just plop the scramble onto a warm tortilla.
I am a sucker for the tofutti sour cream and the chipotle is a little spicy. I also squirted on a little lime juice.

A little OJ spritzer (1/2 glass OJ, then fill with seltzer.)
Then post to blog, and now I'm off to the store. Fueled and happy.
