Before today, I can honestly say I've never taken a picture of my food to post online. Besides making me want to take a picture, this breakfast made me want to return tomorrow.
Restaurant: Liberty Market
City: Gilbert, AZ

My Rating: FIVE STARS
Any meal at Libery Market will remind a visitor why this place continues to be one of the top-ranked restaurants in the area. Fresh, delicious food, great service, and beautiful plates just to name a few. It's a great spot for a casual business lunch or date night. I'd been there many times before, but this was the first time I was paying attention to the things I could--and couldn't--eat. I settled on the Vegan American Standard for it's dairy- and gluten-free promise.
The menu says: scrambled tofu, diced sweet potatoes sauteed with peppers and onions (non-dairy), side green salad, avocado, wheat toast.
I'll add that it also came with a delicious dressing and what appeared to be fresh-made blueberry jam. The counter replaced the wheat toast with a gluten-free option at no charge. I did not sample the blueberry jam as that fruit is high on my list of things to avoid.
I don't consider myself a connoisseur of tofu, but I can't imagine a better tasting egg alternative. The tofu was appropriately seasoned and the texture was superb. The sweet potatoes were also cooked to perfection, a little caramelized and soft but not mushy. I had my reservations about the mixed green salad for breakfast, but the sweet dressing quickly conquered that irrational fear and I gobbled it down.
The only thing I could possibly be disappointed about in this meal is the size. Don't get me wrong, it was fairly priced at $9.50. The tofu stuck with me decently enough, but I needed a snack before lunchtime.
I can only recommend Liberty Market and this menu item; I give it a very easy five star rating.
Tofu has a fair amount of protein, making this a nicely rounded breakfast. I estimate probably 1/2 cup of tofu on the plate, so there was probably 10g of protein or more in this meal.
I failed to ask my order-taker if the gluten-free toast had egg in it (many brands do), which would obviously disqualify it as vegan.
