Classic Haitian Breakfast: Boiled Plantain and Scrambled "Eggs"

Sak Pase! (How we say what's up in Haiti) This recipe is my vegan take on a staple Haitian breakfast. Boiled banana/plantains and scrambled eggs.

How we make eggs in Haiti, or just food in general is is grounded in this primary rule: Everything must seasoned very well. Which makes for a beautiful symphony in your mouth.

Our scrambled eggs are more like a scrambled omelet minus the cheese. In the sense that we cook all the vegetables into it. This recipe was impossible to recreate until I discovered the Follow Your Heart vegan egg. I made it for the first time last year in Seattle. It went over very well. So this is for my Haitian followers who are craving an old fashioned Haitian breakfast or for those of you who want to try a traditional Haitian breakfast.
