5 Tbsp Miyokos Vegan Butter
2 16 oz bags frozen hash browns, thawed completely
1 bunch of kale stemmed and finely chopped
1 package of Extra Firm Silken tofu
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp turmeric
Sea salt & pepper to taste
2 cups prepared Cheeze Sauce or favorite Vegan cheeze shreds
1-2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
Makes 1 large smoothie
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 ripe banana
2 stalks of celery
1 Tbsp Cacao powder
1 tsp Maca Powder
1 tsp Macha
1 Tbsp Flax Seed Oil
1 Tbsp ground Flax Seed
1 Tbsp Hemp Seed
1 Tbsp Chia Seed
1 cup non-dairy milk or 1/2 cup non-dairy milk + 1/2 cup water*
Handful of Ice
Optional: 1-2 dates
Add all of the ingredients to high speed blender and blend until smooth. This smoothie is an excellent way to incorporate omega fatty acids into your diet. I was inspired to try this because I have started taking Flax Oil and a spoonful on it's own does not taste good! I also had some left over celery in the fridge and I really like the flavor this gave the smoothie.
*Note: The additional liquid makes this a drinkable smoothie, if you prefer this as a bowl, use half the liquid. The smoothie doesn't need the additional sweetness from the dates, but I added one before my long run because I like the energy boost dates provide.
To prepare, heat oil in a cast iron skillet over low-medium heat. Add hash browns and stir to coat in oil. Cover with lid. Wash, stem and finely chop kale and add to the potatoes. Stir in seasonings, cover with lid and cook for about 10 minutes, until kale is tender, stirring occasionally. Crumble the tofu into the mixture, stir to combine. Adjust seasonings, cover with lid for another 3-5 minutes until tofu is heated through. I like this topped with any combination of Aji Sobremesa or salsa, giardiniera, and avocado. Served here with a slice of toasted sourdough bread.
This is a cool and refreshing smoothie bowl to enjoy for breakfast. The flax, chia and hemp seeds give a boost of Omega-3, fiber, protein and anti-oxidants. Want to drink it instead? Add more liquid, less ice and blend until very smooth.
To the high-powered blender add:
1 ripe banana, frozen is best but any will do
1 cup of frozen mixed berries
1 Tbsp ground flax
1 Tbsp hemp seed
1 Tbsp chia seed
1 Tbsp almond butter
1/2 cup non-dairy milk
Small handful of ice
Blend to desired consistency. Pour into a bowl and top with chopped nuts, sliced fresh fruit or a sprinkle of granola.
