Vegan MoFo ~ Succotash & Scrambles

This is my 3rd post of the day today - scroll down for come updates on Paco and some Herbs I am considering a purchase or two on.

As for today's Vegan MoFo post...here it is!  Succotash & Scrambles, folks!

First up is this vegan Succotash that I made about a week ago or more for a potluck type picnic.  It contains a splash of Wildtree Garlic Dipping Oil (Grapeseed Oil Based), Sweet Corn, Sweet Red Bell Peppers, Lima Beans, and Basil.  At the end I added about 2 table spoons of Balsamic.  It was fantastic!
Next up I used leftovers to make this scramble not so long ago.  I had some leftover broccoli and some leftover salsa.  I mashed up some extra firm tofu that I 'browned' in a frying pan and there you have it...a meal all on its own!

Questions of the day...

What was the last thing you put in your scramble?

What's the last type of bean you cooked with?

Have you ever dried your own herbs?  If so which ones and for how long?

  1. My most recent bean is the simple white bean, which I've been eating in salads this week. I love limas, though, and need to make some succotash this fall.

    1. Like a White Navy Bean or a White Kidney Bean? Or a Cannellini Bean? That's cool. I like Black Beans and Chickpeas in Salads :) Let me know when you make your Succotash!

    1. I love lentils but the last time I tried doing something with them the residue on them was awful so I chucked them...it kinda freaked me out! That's the first time I had ever done that with Lentil. I still feel bad about it! LOL

  3. I just had scramble last week and I can't even remember what was in it. How sad is that. I just had it earlier this week too! Last bean was Navy bean. Mmm!

  4. never had succotash but the name always makes it sound worth trying - but I love a good vegan scramble - the best one I ever made had vegan cheese sauce through it - wish I could repeat it

    1. My mom told me she never liked it so she never made it for us growing up. I have made a few vegan versions and she's liked the two of them that she's tried. I wonder what the heck she had as a kid that she didn't like? LOL I will have to make a scramble with a vegan cheese sauce soon that sounds FAB!

  5. This is embarrassing but the last beans I cooked with were red beans in canned chili. I took leftover grits, sliced them into rounds, sprayed them with olive oil and baked until a little crispy then poured the chili on top. Lazy food!

    1. Don't be embarrassed about that! I admit I used canned beans more often than not. I know it's not the BEST but it's more 'doable' for me and my schedule usually. I just make sure to do 'natural' or 'low sodium' or 'organic' when possible. I still always read the label because they put 'funny things' in them these days...sigh...

      Your Grits and Bean creation sounds interesting :) Did you blog about that? Let me know if you did!

  6. I usually dry Mint and Curry Leaves at home since I dont use them in every curry I make and then the whole bunch doesnt get used up quickly.. So I dry them on a plate, usually takes around a week and then crush them and store in fridge. it stays good for as long as a month really ..

    Nice scramble, would go very well with butter beans as well !

    1. thanks for the tips on the drying mint! I will be drying them in my dehydrator at a lower temp. I will be picking up some butter beans next time I go shopping I think :)

  7. Your succotash & scrambles look great! :) Last time I had a scramble, I added in chopped green pepper; last beans I cooked with were the black beans last night; and I've never dried my own herbs (though I have been thinking about trying).

    I LOVE scrambled tofu, and usually just add a mix of veggies to it.
    I have tried to dry my own herbs but not with much success.

  9. Hi Jennifer,
    This brings back childhood memories of my mother's succotash! I have not had succotash since then. I'll have to try your recipe. Thank you for sharing your Succotash & Scramble recipes with us at the Healthy, Happy, Green and Natural Party Blog Hop. I appreciate it!
