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.
