Cheap Vegetarian Recipes – Breakfast:


Scrambled “eggs.”


Chop half of a small red onion, half of the green pepper, and one small tomato. Saute the onion and green pepper until onion is translucent. Mix the extra firm tofu with one-half teaspoon turmeric or curry and one-half cup salsa. Add the tofu mixture into the onions and green peppers and cook on medium to low heat for five to ten minutes. Serve with peanut-buttered toast.


Peanut butter oatmeal


Peanut butter covered toast forms the base for this delicious breakfast. Place the toast in a bowl and top it with a serving of old-fashioned oatmeal. Cover the oatmeal with two large spoonfuls of unsweetened applesauce. Then add chopped walnuts and chopped fruit or berries. Pour a half cup of almond milk on the side, and it is ready to eat.


French Toast with Tofu or peanut butter


Blend eight ounces of tofu, one ripe banana, one teaspoon of maple syrup, and one-half cup of water. Pour the mixture into a bowl. Heat your skillet until water bounces off of the pan. Dip whole wheat bread in the mixture and fry it until the toast is browned. Add margarine and applesauce or syrup to the top. The second option is – blend peanut butter with water and dip the bread into it to cook. Then follow the rest of the recipe.


Serve a smoothie with your breakfast choice. Add a three-fourths cup of almond milk per person to a blender. Add a teaspoon of vanilla, one-half of a banana, four strawberries, and one-half cup each mango and blueberries. For extra fiber, add flax. Blend until smooth.
