Day 28: Portobello Mushroom & Kale Farofa (30 Days of Vegan Recipes)/Farofa de Cogumelos Portobello & Couve (Desafio: 30 Dias de Receitas Veganas)

Monday, September 29, 2014

Farofa is a very typical side dish in Brazil, made from toasted manioc flour and it's usually served with "feijoada", a type of bean stew but with lots of meat. Many brazilians like to eat farofa with everyday rice and beans, like I do. While many have their own version and variation, I thought it would be nice to make a vegan version. Since mushrooms and kale combine very well with each other, I though it would combine extremely well with the yellow corn flour, and it did! I also have a farofa version which I make with carrots and raisins, it's delish, maybe I'll share it some other day. Take a look:

(Eu pensei que seria legal fazer uma versão vegana com farofa. Como os cogumelos e couve combinam muito bem um com o outro, eu pensei que iria combinar muito bem com a farinha de milho amarelo, e ficou uma maravilha! Eu também tenho uma versão de farofa que eu faço com cenoura e passas, que é ótima, talvez eu vou compartilhá-la outro dia. Dê uma olhada:)

Day 25: Tofu Scramble with Tofurky Sausage & Spinach (30 Days of Vegan Recipes)

Thursday, September 25, 2014

During this vegan challenge, one of the most difficult things I had to give up was the egg! I love eating eggs in the morning, even though I'm doing incredibly well without it, I still crave it. To satisfy my craving, I thought it would be fun to recreate scrambled eggs but without the egg, of course. This tofu scramble is delish and hits all the right taste buds, in my humble opinion, at least. There are plenty of spices and I've added some tofurky italian sausage and baby spinach for more flavor. Take a look:
