bellamante asked: I'm having problems staying away from meat... I really want to maintain a vegan lifestyle but I'm so used to having meat that its hard to stop. Do you have any advice?

I think the most important thing is to understand why you are vegan. You need to do a lot of research and understand what goes into producing the meat that you are eating. The torture of animals as well as the fact that it is unhealthy for you and the entire world. After that, if you like the taste of meat, then buy meat alternatives! There are tons of really great vegan meat alternatives that are healthy and delicious. If you miss the texture, then hell, eat seitan, the texture is so much like meat that I can’t eat it. Weird, huh? If you want some good meat alternatives, let me know and I’ll send you tons of links. Also, make sure to have a protein source in your meals, tofu, beans, etc. That always helps. Thanks for your question, I hope I helped! Good luck. ❤️

As I have posted before, here: (http://omgzvegan.tumblr.com/post/87831877834/probably-my-favorite-thing-in-the-world-to-make-is) breakfast is probably my favorite thing in the entire world to make! At that link you can find my delicious tofu scramble recipe, and here I will tell you how to make homemade biscuits and gravy to go with it! 

Vegan Cheddar & Scallion Biscuits

Ingredients: 

  1. Unbleached all purpose flour.
  2. Non-dairy butter (such as Earth Balance).
  3. Sea Salt
  4. Baking Powder
  5. Baking Soda
  6. Plain almond milk.
  7. And lemon juice.
  8. About 1/2 cup of Daiya Cheddar Cheese
  9. 1/4 cup scallions 


Directions for biscuits: 

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  3. Add cold butter and use fingers or a pastry cutter to combine the two until only small pieces remain and it looks like sand. Work quickly so the butter doesn’t get too warm.
  4. Make a well in the dry ingredients and, using a wooden spoon, stir gently while pouring in the almond milk mixture 1/4 cup at a time. You may not need all of it. Stir until just slightly combined - it will be sticky.
  5. Add in your vegan cheddar and scallions.
  6. Turn onto a lightly floured surface, dust the top with a bit of flour and then very gently turn the dough over on itself 5-6 times - hardly kneading.
  7. Form into a 1-inch thick disc, handling as little as possible. 
  8. Use a 1-inch thick dough cutter or a similar-shape object with sharp edges (I use a mug to make them circular, you can use a cup or whatever else. Or a biscuit cutter, if you’re fancy) and push straight down through the dough, then slightly twist. Repeat and place biscuits on a baking sheet in two rows, making sure they just touch - this will help them rise uniformly. Gently reform the dough and cut out one or two more biscuits - you should have 7-8.
  9. Next brush the tops with a bit more of melted non-dairy butter and gently press a small divot in the center using two fingers. This will also help them rise evenly, so the middle won’t form a dome.
  10. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 10-15 minutes or until fluffy and slightly golden brown. Serve immediately. Let remaining biscuits cool completely before storing them in an airtight container or bag.

Vegan Mushroom & Onion Gravy

Ingredients: 

  1. 3/4 Cup Mushrooms 
  2. 3 or 4 Cloves of Garlic
  3. 1 Small White Onion, minced
  4. 2 1/2 Cups Vegetable Broth or Water, whatever
  5. About 2 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce 
  6. 1/4 Cup Corn Starch
  7. 1/2 Teaspoon of Thyme & Rosemary 
  8. Salt & Pepper to Taste
  9. Nutritional Yeast! And Lots of it! 

Directions:

Add your garlic, mushrooms and onions to a pot with a bit of olive oil, sauté for about 5 minutes or until they are mildly brown and your onions are translucent, make a roux with your corn starch (this means add it to your onion mixture and stir it around). Add your vegetable broth or water and stir that shit up! Season with your soy sauce, and seasonings (add more if you want), thicken your gravy with nutritional yeast or leave it runny. 

Here’s the fun part! You can use this gravy as a thick and clumpy gravy or you can use a hand blender or a food processor and blend it up into a smooth and delicious gravy! Yum! Serve over your biscuits and tofu scramble and enjoy!
