From Pin to Plate: Breakfast Nachos with Cashew Cheese Sauce, Tofu Scramble and Roast Potatoes

I am really excited to announce my new project: From Pin to Plate.  I love Pinterest and am constantly using it to pin inspiring vegan recipes I find.  My goal is to use it to showcase how delicious vegan food can be (so I try hard to make sure everything I pin is totally vegan – I don’t pin recipes that ‘could be adapted to be vegan’ – I want to show great vegan recipes).  However, I have a bit of a backlog of recipes I am yet to try.  So I thought it would be good to give myself a bit of a kick up the arse and make sure I try out some of the recipes I have found via Pinterest regularly, at least once a month.  So the idea of From Pin to Plate came about.

First up was these breakfast nachos from Post Punk Kitchen.  I’m a huge Isa Chandra Moskowitz fan (Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World was the book that turned me vegan, by showing me vegan cake can be tasty), so I knew from the moment I saw it this would be good.  But it’s also just such a brilliant idea.  I love nachos, I love cashew queso, and I love breakfast.  Combine all three?  It’s a dream come true.

I made a few changes here – I used my basic nacho recipe and my nacho cashew cheese sauce recipe (I made nachos a few days ago and made some extra cashew cheese sauce).  I also modified the tofu scramble to suit the ingredients I had to hand (and to use up some courgettes and red peppers I had in the fridge) plus to include Vegg to make it taste eggier.  It was an amazing breakfast (and SO filling) – I highly recommend it!!

I’ll be doing more pin to plate posts, so watch out for more to come.  Have a suggestion of something I should try?  Link to the pin in the comments or ping me a message with a link!

    yes, I love Pinterest for recipe stuff – it’s better than tearing stuff out of magazines and forgetting where you left it! Cashew cheese + scramble is pretty much my idea of heaven, whether breakfast or tea. What are you making next?!

      For the next one I’m making (well, have made!) a carrot peanut soup – which purports to taste like Vietnamese summer roll dipping sauce!

      Thanks! Yes, it’s so easy to pin and then never get round to making them, I also find sometimes I pin so many I forget what I’ve pinned and then never find the recipe to make again!
