Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and a fresh and healthy meal to start your morning is bound to help you keep going in whatever tasks you’re doing.
Rice is a staple food in Asia, and various toppings and viands have been made to accompany it in a meal. Take curry for example, which itself is a staple food in India. There are various ways you can prepare rice and curry together in a vegan way, one of which is showcased in @healthy_veg_innings’ photo of a delectable plate of vegan vegetable curry.
The hemp seeds are a nice touch, as they emphasize the rich, appetizing redness of the curry over the rice.

MOROCCAN-INSPIRED TOFU SKEWERS 🇲🇦 As much as I would love to be on a road trip or spending time with my family and friends for Memorial Day weekend like I always do, I am super excited about this delicious meal that I have planned for my family to make up for it. These tofu skewers are definitely on the menu! My favorite way to eat tofu, marinated in bold spices and then grilled to perfection. *Feel free to adjust the spices according to your taste. *You can either use an outdoor grill or a grill pan on a stove top . . Serves 2-3 INGREDIENTS 1 pack of extra-firm tofu 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil Zest of 1 lemon Juice of 1/2 lemon 1 tbsp ground cumin 1 tsp cayenne (or more if you want it spicier) 1 tsp smoked paprika 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp saffron threads 2 garlic cloves, crushed Salt and pepper, to taste 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro (optional) 3 tsp finely chopped fresh mint INSTRUCTIONS 1️⃣Remove tofu from the packaging & wrap it well in a dish cloth. Set tofu in a bowl and place a heavy object, like a cast iron skillet on top of the tofu block. Let the excess water drain out of the tofu for at least 30 minutes. 2️⃣Cut the tofu blocks into cubes & set aside 3️⃣In a bowl, whisk to combine olive oil with all the other ingredients, except the fresh herbs. 4️⃣Carefully toss the tofu cubes in the marinade and let it rest for at least an hour in the refrigerator 5️⃣Preheat grill/grill pan to medium-high. 6️⃣Thread tofu cubes onto skewers. 7️⃣Brush remaining marinade (if any) on to the tofu. 8️⃣Grill tofu until all sides brown evenly. Once they are done, add fresh herbs and serve hot with grilled lemon slices Enjoy! Happy weekend! 💚 . . . . #bestofvegan #veganfood #bbq #tofu #tofurecipes #spices #vegantraveler #plantbased #grilling #vegangrilling #memorialday #memorialdayweekend #summergrilling #grilling #vegan #forksoverknives #f52grams #feedfeed #foodphotography @bestofvegan #healthylifestyle #barbeque #crueltyfree #easyrecipes #grill #cleaneating #memorialday2020
