About Me

Creating Special Dishes After struggling to make meals my family wanted, I knew that I had to spruce up my routine. I began chatting with different people about what they typically made for dinner, and a friend of mine mentioned that it could really help to shop at local markets and find fresh foods. I began looking around for places that had things like that, and it was really neat to explore the options I had before me. I found a local market that offered fresh vegetables, and it was cool to incorporate them into the dishes that I was preparing. This blog is all about creating special dishes that work for you and your family.



Starting the day with a protein-rich breakfast can help keep you full well into the afternoon. However, if you follow a plant-based diet, a lot of the classic high-protein breakfast options, like eggs and sausage, will not fit the bill. This doesn't mean you can't enjoy a high-protein, plant-based breakfast, though! Here are two plant-based recipes that will fill you up and get your day off to a high-protein start.

Tofu Scramble With Quinoa and Mushrooms

This recipe combines three high-protein ingredients for a savory and filling breakfast. The first time you make it, follow the recipe to a "t." After that, feel free to play around with the seasonings and fillings as you see fit. 

You'll need:

  • 4 ounces silken tofu
  • 3 medium mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 cup cooked quinoa
  • a pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

Start by drizzling the canola oil into a skillet. When the oil is hot, add the mushrooms to the pan. Saute until tender, and then add the soy sauce. Saute until the mushrooms are coated with the soy sauce mixture. 

Then, add the remaining ingredients to the pan. Use a spatula to break up the tofu, just as you would with scrambled eggs. Once everything is heated through and has begun to crisp up, transfer your scramble to a plate and enjoy.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal With Flax and Chia

If you would prefer a sweeter breakfast, then this recipe is a great one to try. Oats themselves are a decent source of protein, but peanut butter, flax, and chia really boost the protein content into the high-protein range. 

You'll need:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • a pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons whole chia seed
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • a drizzle of maple syrup

Combine the oats, almond milk, and salt in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer, and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, and let cool for about 5 minutes. Stir in the peanut butter, chia, and flaxseed, and then transfer the oatmeal to a bowl. Drizzle with maple syrup, and enjoy!

A high-protein, plant-based breakfast is a great way to start your day. Try making one of the recipes above, and enjoy how well it "sticks to your ribs" as you power through your work or school schedule.
