How Toppings Helped Me Go Vegan

If I asked you what your favorite type of ice cream was when you were a kid, would you say it was two scoops served in a cup to go? How would you answer that question? Raise your hand if you answered "an ice cream sundae with lots of hot chocolate or caramel fudge on top, chopped nuts, sprinkles, and a cherry", or, if you were anything like me, you may have answered "a banana split with three flavors, chocolate sauce and a ton of whipped cream". Toppings transport us to childhood. They mean that not only are we having something delicious, but also that at a very young age we were able to choose exactly what we wanted. We paid attention to what we were craving, and then it was all about creamy, or crunchy, or tangy, or sweet. It was the toppings that made the whole thing extra fun and enjoyable. It meant my ice cream could be different from your ice cream and that I could make the most whimsical creation that was special. Just for me.

Tofu and Potato "Breakfast for Lunch" Burrito

This has to be one of my all-time favorite recipes. I always try to keep tortillas handy because I know I can whip this up in no time, and I always have tofu and potatoes in the house.

This is one of our quick fix recipes, meaning I try to show you how to make a delicious dish without the need to measure a single ingredient! This gives you so much freedom in the kitchen, and it's perfect for those very busy days in which you literally need to throw stuff together in a pan and go.

I got the idea for this dish because many moons ago, back in my meat eating days, I had a shawarma sandwich that had french fries inside the wrap along with the other ingredients. I can't even begin to describe how the textures complimented each other. This dish is 100 times better though. The contrast between the flavorful veggies, tofu and seasonings, not to mention those perfect skillet potatoes stuffed inside the soft tortillas, is simply a dream. If only you could serve it with guacamole... oh wait! Yup! It's absolutely heavenly, and one of my favorite recipes.
