Smoky Potato Scramble

I do eat more than just home fries and scrambles. Even though I just made one a few nights before, I came across a picture on Facebook. Did it ever look good. I knew I had to make it. So I did what most would do and ask which book it’s from or if the recipe was online? This creation is printed in the Vegan Dinner by Julie’s Kitchenette (page 44)




This is a one pot meal! If you are making mashed potatoes make cook a few extra potatoes for this dish, or left over cooked potatoes will work, that way you don’t need to boil the potatoes first therefore making it a two pot dinner 🙂

It has everything you could want – moist, with a nice crunch to the potatoes,  a nice onion, garlic flavour with a hint of smokiness. It’s truly yummy! You must try this. Trust me: you can never have enough potato/ scramble recipes.


What herbs do you like in your scramble?


Holiday potatoes and a scramble

I do love my potatoes and tofu scramble. They go hand in hand. My comfort food, my don’t have to think food, satisfying and I love the left over food.

I’m still working my way through Laura’s Vegan Ease book. I seriously can’t believe how many potatoe dishes that are the star of the meal, and not just cubed into the dish.

I made her holiday Rosemery smash spuds. Such an easy and simple yet had an elegant feel to them. I think next time I might add a splash of freshly squeezed lemon juice after they’ve been cooked, and I didn’t have crushed Rosemery but I would recommend it- unless you like little pineneedle like herbs in your dish. I really don’t mind. But next time I will take that extra step. Sharon Palmer has an interview and the recipe on her site. Make them – seriously.

I didn’t have any English muffins, but wanted to try her method of making tofu scramble for her tofu veg-muffin (this would make an excellent breakfast, served with a side of hash browns or home potatoes of course). This dish is pretty good! Moister than what I normal make- but in a good way. I’m use to making a version of Isa’s tofu scramble, which is more dry (I don’t follow her recipe, I just wing it now). I did like the way Laura’s scramble held up the next day. (My way is more dry and maybe I should add water before I re-heat, but I can be lazy)

Another two great dishes from The Vegan Ease! Seriously, the dish is tastier than what I could make it look like  I’m only using my iPhone to snap pics.

Soup is Ready!

I made this homemade soup which was perfect for the chilly day.  It hit the spot!


Onions, garlic, carrots, potatoes, parsnip, cabbage, salt & pepper, curry, thyme, sage, oregano, liquid smoke and veggie broth.  So easy, and yet, so delish!  I was going to puree it, but couldn’t wait so ate a bowl as soon as it was ready to go.  🙂

Pureed Soup

Later on that evening, I pureed some then reheated and put in a mug and snuggled on the couch to enjoy.  The pic does not do it justice.
