More Great Food From Follow Your Heart

Day 2 of Vegan MoFo!!

I try to eat at a lot of vegan-friendly places, but sometimes a girl just wants a good vegan breakfast!  That is why I went again to Follow Your Heart in Canoga Park.  I wish there were more vegan breakfast joints in LA and Orange County.  But, then again, I do love Follow Your Heart.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t too in love with my breakfast choice.  I got the Tofu Eggwich ($6.95): scrambled tofu patty, tomato, avocado, “pastrami” wheatmeat, and Vegenaise on an english muffin.   You also get a choice of potatoes or fruit.  As you can see, I went with the potatoes – so good!  I don’t know what they did to them, but they were delicious.  The tofu patty on the sandwich was not that delicious.  I thought it was going to be a slab of marinated tofu, but this one was smushed up tofu with some kind of thickening/binding flour or starch and spices.  I didn’t really like the flavor.

I wasn’t sure how big that tofu sandwich was going to be, so I got a side of Cornbread ($2.50).  This sure was a hearty slice of cornbread.  I’m a snob when it comes to cornbread – I like it fluffy and on the sweet side.  Hearty cornbreads just don’t do it for me.  They asked if I’d like honey with it, but since I don’t eat honey, I declined.  It would have been better with some kind of sweetener – jam or agave/maple syrup, though.

My vegan guy didn’t care for breakfast foods and went straight to lunch.  He got the Reuben ($10.75): thinly sliced wheatmeat, cheese, sauerkraut, mustard, and Vegenaise, on rye.  I’d like to tell you how good or bad it was, but I actually don’t remember what he thought (and neither does he).  Oops.
