13410817_1169109109799857_750218920_oI used to date a very nice guy from Jordan. He was actually the first friend I made within the first 2 weeks of moving to the United Kingdom, so I know him from the start. It didn’t work out between us as a couple, but I’m still friends with him. We had a nice time together and we used to do a lot of fun stuff. One of the things I really liked was eating breakfast together. We sometimes ate it for lunch or dinner too, because it’s so nice and I liked it so much. Now the traditional breakfast had egg, yogurt and cheese. At that time I was vegetarian and so I was ok with that, but now being a vegan, that changed. But because I like it so much and I didn’t have it for so long, I decided to make it vegan. I left some things out and replaced the egg by a vegan version. The result is very yummy and I’m sure to make it more often from now on. Oh and ‘Azka Ftour’ means the nicest breakfast. So there you go..

4 pita breads
100 gr houmous (see recipe)
1/2 cucumber
2 tomatoes
10 olives
1/8 cup olive oil
1/8 zaatar
vegan egg
100 gr tofu
1/4 cup chickpeas
1 large garlic clove (minced)
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp cornstarch
salt/pepper to taste
2 tbsp water
1/3 spring onion

-Mix the tofu, chickpeas, garlic, nutritional yeast, the cornstarch, the water and the salt and pepper in a food processor and blend until you have a smooth mixture.
-Put a little olive oil in a frying pan and when that’s hot you can slowly poor the mixture in and spread it out until it’s about 1/2 a cm thick.
-Sprinkle some zaatar and spring onion on top.
-Fry on low/medium heat for about 8-10 minutes, until the top is dried up.
-For the houmous, you can use the recipe in Dippy Dips. You just leave out the bell pepper, so you’ll have a plain variant.
-Put everything on plates and nice dishes.

How to eat it:
-There is no cutlery involved here, because you use the bread to dip and to grab.
-For the zaatar you first dip the bread in the olive oil and then into the zaatar.
-For the egg you grab/break a piece with the bread. Yum!
-You can make your own combinations in your mouth. Combine houmous with tomato and cucumber. Have some olives in between or with your bread dipped in zaatar. Be creative!
