Amy's Breakfast Scramble Wrap


Everybody doesn't eat eggs regardless of how common this dish is for breakfast or in dairy products. For some people, the issue of eating eggs is because of "21 Things the Egg Industry Doesn’t Want You to See." For others, this can easily be resolved by only buying eggs from humane farmers. But then there's the matter of what chickens are fed, which leads to some consumers only purchasing organic eggs.

Once the moral issues are resolved, then comes an even bigger issue: liking the taste of eggs. People get even more particular about their eggs than they do their cafe drinks: scrambled, sunny-side up, boiled, powdered, baked or raw.

Amy's Breakfast Scramble Wrap and Tofu Scramble prepared meals make the egg issues a lot easier to deal with, purchase and enjoy.

The biggest perk of silken tofu is it takes on the same soft texture as eggs but without the harsh treatment, odd odor or cooking particulars. From first glance, silken tofu's beige, boxy appearance doesn't make anybody's stomach growl. But as tofu cooks often do, adding the right amount of spices and additional ingredients make silken tofu dishes a delicious main course.

Amy's Kitchen Tofu Scramble: This meal comes with seasoned tofu mixed in with organic vegetables (spinach, zucchini, mushrooms, carrots, onions and tomatoes). On the side are shredded hash browned potatoes. Eat it separately or mix it all up. It's incredible regardless and has similarities to an omelet but without all of the cholesterol concerns.

Amy's Kitchen Breakfast Scramble Wrap: Imagine a pot pie with breakfast ingredients inside. That's what these breakfast pocket sandwiches taste like, and they're almost as good in the microwave as they are in an oven. The breakfast scramble wrap is a mix of silken tofu, organic vegetables (spinach and tomatoes), mustard flour and turmeric (usually used to make the beige tofu color yellowish to take on the appearance of eggs) and Lightlife's Smart Bacon. The natural smoke flavor and paprika give it a very mild spicy flavor that makes the sandwich even better.

Depending on whether the breakfast consumer is in the mood for more bread or more potatoes, that's about the only challenge with eating either of these. Both of them are an easy 5 out of 5 stars.
