One of my favorite blogga’s was raving, a few weeks back, over a breakfast patty she had discovered that, said she, almost made her feel guilty it tasted so much like real sausage.
She talked them up so, and posted such pretty pictures I decided to make a batch last Tuesday while Jen and the two older kids were out.
It was a rather arduous ordeal (likely the result of cooking with a two-year old) but we had a lot of (messy) fun.
William very, very slowly added the ingredients to the food processor and whirred it all to mush. As we spatula’d the result into a bowl I was doubtful the end product would be very good.
Nevertheless we pressed patties onto a cookie tray and flung them into the oven, then, turned to amalgamating their accompanying gravy.
The result: Pretty darn good — keeping in mind, of course, that blogga’s a vegan and her idea of what meat tastes like is a Morningstar Farms breakfast patty, not a Jimmy Dean.
We have enjoyed these over the past week, both for breakfast
and as a tasty lunch: Heated and served over a bed of spinach or wrapped in lettuce sans gravy with a little honey mustard dressing.

A tofu tumble for two, generically
1/2 container diced firm tofu
1 small, thinly sliced onion
4 sliced mushrooms
1 chopped green onion
A small handful of spinach
2 finely chopped green olives
2 diced cloves garlic
A couple dashes ground cayenne
A few Dashes of tamari
Slice and dice:
Saute the onion until it starts to brown then add the tofu. Once the tofu starts to dehydrate and brown a bit add everything up to the spinach. After sweating the veggies a bit, add the spinach, cook down and serve.
