Nice easy and delicious high protein scrambled tofu. You can have it on toast, with baked beans and fried mushrooms, in pitta bread, mixed into a noodle stir fry .......

spray a frying pan with frylight and cook your mix which consists of

1 block or packet of tofu mashed up with flavourings. Tumeric is essential and some sort of salty stock like bouillon pwder, celery salt or herbamare, balsamic vinegar and/or veggie worcester sauce and if you've got it some nurtitional yeast is nice too.

I've just thought that adding some tiny pieces of pickled red pepper would be pretty and delicious

vegan chilli con carnne

ingrediants:
frozen or fresh onions
dried soya mince
chickpeas
mixed beans
tinned tomaotes
chilli powder packet
water

if you like it hot:
2 spoons of paprika
2 spoons of hot chilli powder
plenty of fresh chillies

_________________________
the chickpeans and beans i buy are all dry, so i leave them soaking overnight first.
as is the soya mince, but i only soak this for 30 mins.

find a big pan, just shive the lot in!
soak the mince for half an hour, to plump it up a bit, once its ready then drain it of all excess liquid,
put it all in the pan as well as the beans, chickpeas, tomatoes, chilli mix, and (spices if you wanted to add them)
leave to boil for roughly 20 - 30 minutes, when its almost ready add the frozen onions, they only need a few minutes cooking time so they go in the last.

then its done and ready to eat.

i always make enough to feed a family, so theres always tons left so it all goes in the freezer :D
