Tofu Scramble


If you’ve never had a Tofu Scramble before, it’s basically the vegan version of scrambled eggs (but actually yummy and healthy). This is a great recipe for breakfast with toast or served with vegan sausages. You can use any vegetables you have on hand for this dish, so if you’ve got any veg and some tofu, you’re all set! I think this is definitely the best mix though! I haven’t specified how much of the vegetables to include, use as much or as little as you like (I like lots)!

1 tbsp olive oil (for frying)
1 block of tofu (firm)
1 onion (finely chopped)
mushrooms (chopped)
baby tomatoes (sliced)
spinach (finely chopped, I use frozen cubes, already chopped)
2 tbsp savoury yeast flakes (nutritional yeast)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
½ tsp turmeric
½ tsp paprika
salt and pepper to taste

  • Heat olive oil in a large fry pan and cook the vegetables until mushrooms are slightly browned.
  • Drain the tofu and crumble through fingers over a large bowl. Once the tofu is finely crumbled, add to the frying pan. Stir.
  • Add in the baby tomatoes, savoury yeast, spices and garlic powder and stir to combine and heat.
  • Once the tofu has started to turn yellow add the salt and pepper and mix.
  • Serve!

Vegan Nuggets


I made these vegan “chicken” nuggets the other day and they were great! This recipe makes around 20 so you’ll have enough to feed everyone or yourself for a couple of days! I have made these nuggets with 2 layers of bread crumbs and with only 1 layer. I think dipping twice is yummier but it is more work and they are still good only being dipped once. So you can decide what you prefer.


  • 1 cup gluten flour (vital wheat gluten)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 (or more) cups bread crumbs
  • 3 tbsp savoury yeast flakes (nutritional yeast)
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 cups soy milk (or 1 if only dipping once)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. Combine the flour, garlic and onion powders and salt in a bowl and whisk. Add the water and olive oil in a separate bowl and mix. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and knead until combined. Place on a large cutting board and knead for a minute or two. Let rest.
  2. Mix together bread crumbs, yeast flakes and spices. In a separate bowl mix together the soy milk and olive oil.
  3. Place foil over 2 baking trays and preheat oven to 200°C.
  4. Rip off a small portion of the dough (remember this makes around 20 pieces) and dip into the wet mixture, add to the dry and press into a nugget shape while getting the dry ingredients to stick. Set aside and continue with remaining dough.
  5. (Optional) re-dip the nuggets in the wet mix and once again into the dry getting more crumbs to stick. If dipping for a second time you may have to add more ingredients into the wet and dry bowls.
  6. Place nuggets on baking trays and cook for 20 – 30 minutes. You will need to flip the nuggets a few times or more to prevent the top layer of crumbs from burning. I cooked mine for 10 minutes each side and then again, 5 minutes for each side.
  7. Eat! YUM!

Note: If you don’t get through all 20 in one go, you can place in an airtight container and keep in the fridge up to a couple of days. If reheating in oven they take about 10 minutes, or 1-2 in a microwave.

On the Brightside: Interview with a 6 Year Old



Meet Keeley, AKA Cookie, my little sister and fellow animal lover. At Cookie’s school they have been learning about farm animals and on a very exciting journey, the class was taken to the much loved Brightside Farm Sanctuary. A refuge for animals. Of course I took this opportunity to interview Cookie and get some exposure for our friends over at Brightside.

Here’s what Cookie had to say about the adventure:




What animals did you see at Brightside?

Cows, bulls, cute cats, there were two little cute ones, lots of nice dogs that I got to pat. Sheep, goats, chickens, rats… ummm… geese, donkey’s, ponies, horses. Did I say pigs? And that’s it.

What did you learn about the animals?

She said, what do pigs do? Someone said rolling in the mud. I put my hand up but she already said the fact I was going to. She said, “Pigs roll in the mud because they don’t sweat and they have to cool down.”

What did you do at Brightside Farm Sanctuary?

One of the sheep was running up to me and it made me have to run cause it was following me and I held one of the bulls horns. I played chasings with the pigs. With the lead I got to hold a pig. I got to feed a baby sheep. I tickled one of the pigs tummies and it fell over.

Did It?

Mmmm… they liked it. The cat came up to me and was purring on my cheek. I got to play with the horses and ponies and got to hug one of the big cows. And I got to hold one of the mice and I think that’s it.

What did you do with your friends?

I played chasings with my friends and with a pig. Me and my friends we all got to hug the cow at the same time and I got a picture with me and my friends holding the bulls horns. And we played a game with the horses.

Did you have fun?


What did you enjoy the most about your visit to Brightside Farm Sanctuary?


You can’t think of one thing?

No. *shakes head*

This is a picture Cookie has drawn of herself and a friend having fun at Brightside.
