Leisurely Breakfast with Easy Veggie Girl!

Mondays I usually don't have to go to work until 2 so I have a nice morning to spend doing whatever I please. My cousin Oraphan (of Easy Veggie blog) and I can never synch our schedules to get together so we decided to do morning breakfast today which worked out perfectly. I had a simple but tasty menu planned: scrambled tofu with kale, sesame sprouted grain toast, fresh fruit and hot tea. She brought beautiful cranberry scones and chickpea blondies (to die for!). We ate a whole lot and really enjoyed everything, especially getting the chance to spend time together and talk about food, being veggie and life in general. I wish we can do this more often! Thank you cousin for spending your morning with me! I <3 you!

Oraphan's your cousin!!
I LOVE her blog and it's so cool you are related. Are any more of your family veggie?
That Breakfast looks totally scrummy.

That all looks so delicious! I love cranberries in anything. What's that sauce on your scramble?

I am crazy intrigued by the Chickpea Blondies - I will be attempting these this weekend!

Yes, I'm so lucky to have Oraphan as my cousin. I love her so much! We are the only veggies in our family. We talked about how in Thai cooking there is a lot of meat. I wish there were more of us over on the veggie side. :)

The sauce is a combo of vegan mayo, ketchup, dijon mustard and black pepper. Adjust to your tastes. It's great on tofu scramble!

Those blondies blew my mind! I ate about four pieces! Ask Oraphan, she witnessed it!

Thanks so very much again and again for having me this morning, I really enjoyed every single bite of my breakfast. And I had so much fun chatting with you, time passed by so quickly, didn't it?
