Vegan MoFo Day 5: Pizza eggs!

I'm not off to a very good start for this year's MoFo. But soon my family issues will be done, work will get less busy, and I'll be able to put some good effort into this blog. Today's post was inspired by this thread over at the PPK forums. Someone was watching the TV show Weeds and a character was talking about something called "pizza eggs" which none of us had heard of outside the TV show, so we could only guess to what it was. After some googling, we determined that it is scrambled eggs with bits of pizza mixed in. I had recently ordered the Vegg so I just had to veganize it of course.

Sorry for this horrible picture!

Vegan Pizza Eggs

1 slice leftover vegan pizza (mine was Seitan Bacon Ranch--see my previous post), cut into small squares
6 oz extra firm tofu, pressed and crumbled

1 tsp Vegg powder
1/4 cup water

Combine pizza and tofu in a skillet and cook over medium heat for just a minute so some of the moisture in the tofu evaporates and the edges are beginning to brown. In a mini blender or food processor, mix Vegg powder and water. Pour the Vegg mixture over the tofu and cook until everything is hot and the Vegg thickens.

As a review, it was really good, but I'm not a huge fan of the Vegg. I think it would be just as good (maybe better) using a generous amount of nutritional yeast (with an optional pinch of black salt) in place of the Vegg

VeganMoFo 2013!

It's time for the 7th annual VeganMoFo! I'm so excited for our first September MoFo. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with this time around. Today, one of my best friends left New York to move to San Francisco across the country. After a tearful goodbye, I went out for pizza. Because it's harder to feel sad when there's delicious pizza in your mouth.

Today's pizza comes from my favorite vegan-loving restaurant on Long Island: Three Brothers Pizza Cafe. I've posted about them before, but they have since changed locations and, I swear, have gotten even better. Three Brothers' new location is 75 Merritts Road in Farmingdale, NY--dangerously close to where I work. Today, my friend Jess accompanied me and we ordered too much food on purpose because leftover pizza is a must.

We started with Buffalo Wingz:

Then the pizza!!! Seitan Bacon Ranch (Seitan, tempeh bacon, tomatoes, ranch dressing):

and Bianca (tofu ricotta, spinach, garlic):

And of course, dessert! Cookies and cream cake right in front, and in the background there's Cookies and Cream Cheesecake:

We were completely stuffed and we only ate about half the food. Enough leftovers for a whole other meal. YES! And I got this awesome note on my receipt from our server, Dani, who I was telling about MoFo:

Such a great end to a sad day!
