The Menu: A side of grilled polenta squares with salsa ranchero and cabbage salad paired with a plate of whole-wheat toast.
The Goods: I'm a big fan of pairing two substantial sides into one satisfying meal, and these two small plates definitely hit the spot. I'm also a big fan of enjoying breakfast for lunch (or brunch, as the kids call it), so basically this was the perfect midday meal. If enjoying a hearty vegan brunch at a local vegan-friendly diner isn't an option for you, might I recommend eating breakfast leftovers for lunch? Trust me, tofu scrambles do taste just as good four hours later—especially if served with crunchy toast and spicy salsa.
