I’m so pleased to introduce everyone to Christine Oppenheim of Veggie Fixation, today! Christine is an uber-creative, allergy-friendly, vegan chef that comes up with some amazing dishes. She puts on informative cooking classes in the Southern California Area, while also being a personal chef to many lucky people. Firstly, I have to thank her for her kind words, below; and secondly, the AWESOME recipe! (Don’t forget to check out her site for more food magic!)
I love scrolling through Vegan Yack Attack and drooling over all Jackie’s amazing photos. I mean, seriously, the girl’s got talent. Her food is super creative and her photography is gorgeous, to boot. I’m honored to be guest posting for her.
When I first met Jackie over dinner at Native Foods, I remember being almost a little awe-struck to meet a blogger I really admire.
We immediately hit it off, chatting about our vegan journeys, and, of course, our shared love for food. After all, we were at a meeting to discuss the vegan food tours we were giving throughout Los Angeles with the now defunct Urban Food Crawl.
One of the topics that came up was my dietary restrictions, and specifically, my avoidance of soy. (I can have small amounts, like tamari or miso, but my digestion doesn’t tolerate anything more than that.) A number of my clients can’t have soy, as well, so it’s always a fun challenge coming up with alternatives.
Since going soy free, one thing I’ve missed most is a good breakfast scramble. Sure, I make chickpea quiche like they are going out of style, but it’s just not the same. I tried Living Harvest tempt hemp tofu once, thinking I had found the Holy Grail. However, as delicious as it was, that product really is ever so elusive. It’s only been sighted at one Whole Foods near me and more often than not, it is sold out.
I was about to resign myself to never having a proper scramble again when I dreamed up the missing link…
Turns out, it’s a perfect partner to a morning sweet potato hash. I’ll be making cauliflower scramble over and over and over. That vegan quiche may just have a run for its money.
I’m so excited to share this recipe with all you Vegan Yack Attack readers!
