  • Smoked tofu rashers
  • Scrambled tofu ‘eggs’
  • Veggie sausages
  • Mushrooms
  • Grilled tomatoes
  • Baked beans


Fried potatoes with onions and herbs

  1. Finely chop one large potato and one medium onion.
  2. In a large non stick frying pan gently fry the potato for 5 minutes, then add the onion and 1 teaspoon of mixed herbs. Continue to fry gently for another 5 minutes.

Smoked tofu rashers

  1. Thinly slice one block of smoked tofu and place in a shallow dish.
  2. Liberally sprinkle with tamari sauce (tamari is a type of soy sauce) and leave to marinate for at least one hour, ideally overnight, if you can remember to do it in advance! Gently fry in a little oil for 4 minutes on either side.

Alternatively, you can buy veggie rashers in supermarkets and health food stores.

Scrambled tofu ’eggs’

  • 1 packet of regular firm tofu, drained and mashed
  • ½ red pepper, finely chopped
  • 4 mushrooms diced
  • pinch of turmeric powder
  • tamari sauce
  • a little pepper
  1. Gently fry the vegetables until soft, add all of the remaining ingredients and continue to cook for 2 minutes.

Serve your rashers, scrambled tofu and fried potato with veggie sausages, mushrooms, grilled tomatoes and baked beans for the perfect lazy Sunday morning.
