Tofu IV + Butternut Squash II

Vegan "egg" in a basket: A hole in one! Toad in a hole, Toad in the hole, Egg in the hole, Egg in a hole, toast

In September, we're posting one cartoon per day as part of Vegan MoFo. Our theme, *Vegan Faux Show*, showcases various methods for creating vegan versions of classic foods like bacon, eggs, and cheese.

Since today is the last day of our 10-day ode to egg-like vegan breakfast foods, we wanted to close out this momentous occasion with an impressive vegan food fake-out.  Commonly known as either "Egg in a basket" or "Toad in the Hole", this clever concoction by Vanessa Rees (via Jamie K at Save the Kales) consists of a classic vegan egg component (tofu) and a dark horse ingredient (an orange squash such as butternut squash).

P.S. We had an awesome chat and #veganmofo roundup with @TheSexyVegan. Check it out here: http://www.thesexyvegan.com/home/panini

Nuts + Seeds

Raw Scramble: Chock full o' nuts (and seeds)!, Chock full of nutes and (seeds)!

In September, we're posting one cartoon per day as part of Vegan MoFo. Our theme, *Vegan Faux Show*, showcases various methods for creating vegan versions of classic foods like bacon, eggs, and cheese.

While we've mentioned before that vegan, gluten-free, Paleo, low-fat, and allergen-free crowds whip up some inventive dishes as a result as a result of dietary restrictions, we neglected to include raw vegans in that list.

Broadly, raw vegans believe that there are health benefits to consuming a diet that consists mostly of food that has not been heated beyond 118 °F. Nuts and seeds play major roles as protein sources in a raw vegan diet and this Raw Vegan & Gluten Free Veggie Scramble by Chef Teri Vlaskamp at Global Raw exemplifies the incredibly creative and delicious spirit of raw veganism.

In September, we're posting one cartoon per day as part of Vegan MoFo. Our theme, *Vegan Faux Show*, showcases various methods for creating vegan versions of classic foods like bacon, eggs, and cheese.

As you may have witnessed by the last five days of egg-less scrambles, the vegan scramble space is pretty crowded.  Polenta scrambles are still kind of under the egg-less scramble radar but, fortunately we were able to track down this gorgeous Polenta Scramble recipe at Veganize Everything.

Cauliflower IV

Cauliflower Scramble, leggo the eggo

In September, we're posting one cartoon per day as part of Vegan MoFo. Our theme, *Vegan Faux Show*, showcases various methods for creating vegan versions of classic foods like bacon, eggs, and cheese.

According to so-called food experts, cauliflower is the new kale.  While we find it quite entertaining to envision kale and cauliflower competing in hand-to-hand combat for our love, we are mostly just excited that so-called food experts and influencers are excited about veggies rather than bacon-wrapped-something.

According to our so-called research, cauliflower's role at the breakfast table has not been adequately studies or appreciated.  Whip up this Cauliflower Scramble by Katharine Freeman at The Left Hand Chef and be part of the next, next big thing!

In September, we're posting one cartoon per day as part of Vegan MoFo. Our theme, *Vegan Faux Show*, showcases various methods for creating vegan versions of classic foods like bacon, eggs, and cheese.

Along with nutritional yeast, chickpea flour is akin to magic vegan fairy dust. Given chickpea flour's status, we felt that its post merited its own unique title rather than simply "Chickpea VI." Take a peak at the Chickpea Flour Scramble recipe by Sayward Rebhal at Bonzai Aphrodite and prepare yourself for a breakfast revelation.

Tempeh II

Tempeh Scramble: Get cracking!

In September, we're posting one cartoon per day as part of Vegan MoFo. Our theme, *Vegan Faux Show*, showcases various methods for creating vegan versions of classic foods like bacon, eggs, and cheese.

So Tempeh is making another appearance during Vegan MoFo 2014. For those of you who do not know, Tofu and Tempeh have a bit of a friendly rivalry going on. Tempeh feels like he is living in the shadow of Tofu.  Tofu gets a lot of the attention (both positive and negative) while Tempeh receives confused looks.

Tofu Scrambles are all the rage on breakfast menus across the country but Tempeh Scrambles are a lesser known, homemade affair.  Help a Tempeh brother out and check out the Tempeh Scramble by Ty at Vegan Derby Cat Party.

- Cadry Nelson on July 3, 2014 via Twitter

Our blogging buddy Cadry at Cadry's Kitchen has this running joke on her blog and Twitter regarding "Ways to Suss out a Vegan" and an obsession with chickpeas certainly appears to be a common side effect of veganism.

What do vegans eat for breakfast? That's a great question. Sure there is oatmeal, cereal with non-dairy milk, toast topped with nut butter, smoothies, and so on. But what about a savory breakfast to replace one's beloved eggs? Not to worry, fair readers, we've got you covered for the next 10 days.

The first stop in this egg-free breakfast tour is the classic tofu scramble. This Tofu Scramble by Gabby Ouimet at The Veggie Nook proves that nutritional yeast, black salt, and spices can transform a blah slab of tofu into a incredible savory breakfast.
