TOFU SCRAMBLE STUFFED SWEET POTATOES (serves 4)

*14 ounce block extra firm tofu, pressed and crumbled (instructions at 00:45)
*1 tbsp olive oil
*8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
*1 onion, diced
*2 garlic cloves, minced
*1 inch piece ginger, minced
*1 chili pepper, diced
*1 tsp paprika
*1 tsp cumin
*ยฝ tsp turmeric
*โ…› tsp cayenne pepper
*1 tsp sea salt + black pepper to taste
*1 small head of kale, thinly sliced
*4 tbsp nutritional yeast https://amzn.to/2vToWSZ
*4 cooked sweet potatoes
*For serving: avocado and salsa

1. Heat a deep skillet over medium-high heat with the olive oil. Add the onion and mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms begin to soften, 4-6 minutes. Then add the garlic, ginger and chili pepper and cook for another minute.
2. Add the crumbled tofu and sprinkle it with the paprika, cumin, turmeric, cayenne, salt and pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly, until the spices are fragrant and the tofu is hot throughout.
3. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the sliced kale and a 3-4 tablespoons water. Cover with a lid and steam until the kale softens, 4-6 minutes.
4. Stir in the nutritional yeast, check the seasonings, and add more salt and pepper to taste. Cook for another minute or two until heated through.
5. Scoop out a little flesh from the cooked sweet potatoes and serve the tofu scramble in the sweet potato boats. Top with avocado and salsa if desired.

FLAT BELLY GREEN SMOOTHIE (serves 1)

*1 cup almond milk
*2 cups baby spinach
*1 inch piece fresh ginger, roughly chopped
*1 inch piece fresh turmeric, roughly chopped
*1 cup frozen pineapple
*2 tablespoons raw almonds
*ยผ cup gluten-free rolled oats
*1 tablespoon flaxseed meal https://amzn.to/2jbX43s
*1 tablespoon chia seeds https://amzn.to/2r2i14i
*1 tablespoon hemp seeds https://amzn.to/2vToRi9

1. Add all ingredients except for chia seeds and hemp seeds to a blender until smooth.
2. Top finished smoothie with chia seeds and hemp seeds.

GRAIN-FREE CHOCOLATE PORRIDGE (serves 1)

*1 small head of cauliflower
*1/2 large ripe banana
*ยฝ cup coconut milk or cashew milk https://amzn.to/2HAKrtd
*Pinch of salt
*2 tbsp cocoa powder https://amzn.to/2HAzuI1 (or cacao powder)
*1-2 tsp pure maple syrup (optional)
*1/2 tsp cinnamon
*โ…› tsp cloves
*1/2 tsp vanilla extract
*Toppings: berries and peanut butter

1. Cut the head of cauliflower into florets. Add to a food processor and pulse until the size of rice. Drain the cauliflower rice over a fine mesh sieve to remove excess water; otherwise, your porridge will be on the watery side.
2. Heat a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the drained cauliflower rice, mashed banana, coconut milk, and salt, and bring to a simmer.
3. Then reduce heat and cover, stirring every few minutes until cauliflower is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
4. Stir in cocoa powder, maple syrup, spices and vanilla and mix well.
5. Once thickened to your liking, transfer to a bowl and top with berries and peanut butter.

  1. The poridge looks amazing and what a great idea to use cauliflower. Although oats are really good for you but this is a great variation because sometimes Oats get a bit boring

  2. I call my tofu scramble a โ€˜power mealโ€™ because I feel like I fueled my body with all the food groups. I put some sun dried tomatoes in my scramble and also a small drizzle of honey on a slice of whole wheat toast. Iโ€™ll have to try your spice blend next time.

  3. Yay, a new video ๐Ÿ™‚ That green smoothie looks really good but I have to say I am always still hungry shortly after I drink a smoothie, maybe the addition of chia seeds and hemp will make me stay fuller, longer? Worth a try for sure. Also, that cauliflower "oatmeal" looks a-maz-ing!!๐Ÿ™Œ These are some great ideas, as I am getting bored with my usual oats with almond milk and flax..๐Ÿ˜‚

  4. Hi Nisha! These recipes look awesome. A few questions. Where do I buy fresh turmeric? Also, where did you get that skillet you used for the first recipe? Also, any recommendations on blenders?

  5. I would never have imagined using cauliflower as porridge – particularly given its unmistakeable smell – but this looks amazing and I suspect the cocoa powder will disguise all traces ๐Ÿ™‚ Ingenious!

  6. "walking food monster" lol…been there done that too๐Ÿ˜œ But breakfast foods are just too good. I did not see the cauli coming, but love it! The ultimate sneaky veggie recipe๐Ÿซ๐Ÿซ

  7. โ€˜Unless you are a 12 year old with an amazing metabolism, in that case eat all the junk food you can as it only goes downhill from hereโ€™ looool – love it! โ€˜As a vegan Iโ€™m obligated to tell you to eat your vegetablesโ€™ ha ha – love your videos!!!! X

  8. Hi im from the uk came across your channel whilst searching 'hygge' just subbed am addicted your videos ,looking for lifestyle change this is great inspo keep up the great content i just know your channel will get huge ๐Ÿ˜Šx

  9. I love sneaky cauliflower!!!! I put that and whatever veggies that I can grate up in everything that will somewhat hide it. Lol. Shhhhhh donโ€™t tell my family, they think they donโ€™t like veggies. You canโ€™t have a vegan mom and not eat mostly veggies, even if you donโ€™t know about them. Bwahahaha!!
