Simple Breakfast

Craving carbohydrates and eggs for breakfast?

I was.  And I was thinking of the tofu salad I made with pesto.  I have weird cravings from time to time.  I would eat food for breakfast that are meant  for lunch or dinner.  While I was mixing the ingredients, I thought well, it would be weird if I put an over easy egg, but why not try it anyway?

Rice is a staple food throughout Asia.  Eating rice most of your life, makes you crave it no matter how hard you try to avoid it or remove it from your diet.   Thank God there’s quinoa, a healthier substitute.  At least you’re not just consuming empty calories.  It’s now my  fave carbohydrates. 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg, cooked to your personal preference
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 14 oz. firm or soft tofu, cubed to bite pieces
  • prepared pesto
  • salt
  • tomatoes, coarsely chopped (optional)

Put cubed tofu in a bowl.  Add prepared pesto in a bowl with tofu.  Season with salt according to your taste and toss to incorporate.  Arrange and layer quinoa, a scoop of tofu with pesto, and the over easy egg.  You can add tomatoes and other toppings if you so desire.  Enjoy.

Super Easy Tofu Salad

I want to share this super easy vegetarian dish I brought to a gathering three weekends ago.  It was a very light, refreshing, and flavorful salad and everyone liked it.  This salad is also great with spinach or Romaine lettuce, dried cherries and cheese.
