Farmhouse Breakfast Week Award

Breakfast is a good start to the day, so it seemed like a great start to a new year to take part in Farmhouse Breakfast Week.

The Shake Up Your Wake Up campaign encourages people eat a healthy breakfast. I serve a variety of breakfasts to the B and B guests at Our Lizzy in Malvern, Worcestershire.  Lots of places have a vegetarian option but it’s nice to offer a real selection. Most people opt for the full breakfast of veggie sausages, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms, baked beans, hash browns, scrambled tofu and toast. I also offer a lighter option of mushrooms, baked beans or grilled tomatoes on toast. The toasted bagel topped with scrambled tofu and veggie bacon is popular choice.  Pancakes are a treat served filled with bananas or seasonal fruit. As well as these vegan breakfast options I also cater for people on a gluten-free diet.

I was nominated for my full vegan breakfast. It was a national award so I was absolutely delighted to come top in the B and B and Guest House category! Many thanks to all of you who voted 🙂

I ran a breakfast event here at Our Lizzy Cookery School as part of the week. It was good to be able to offer non B and B customers the opportunity to sample my full vegan breakfast. I was definitely a busy Lizzy that day but it was good to see different people from the area coming together to share vegan food. Lots of people were interested in the recipe for my scrambled tofu which is so healthy and low in fat.  Think the breakfast event will have to be repeated!
