Summer is here! Tofu Flower Breakfast Sandwich
Tofu scrambles are a favorite of ours, we eat a lot of them in a variety of ways. Using leftovers in wraps for a quick lunch or breakfast for another day. But there is something to be said about a breakfast sandwich – I love a breakfast sandwich! Who doesn’t? One of the things I miss is being able to grab a quick, gooey breakfast on the run. So what’s left to do – create your own! And while you’re at it why not make it a treat for the eyes too! Perfect to have for brunch or as a weekday grab-and-go breakfast.
This one is so easy, inexpensive and can be made the night before, just keep the bits separate until morning for a quick assembly.
1 package extra firm tofu (pressed to remove excess water)
4 BFree bagels (or bagel of your choice) – sliced in half
1 Beyond Meat Sausage (flavor of your choice of course) sliced into bite-size rounds
12 spinach leaves – 3 for each bagel (add more if you prefer)
4 tbsp olive oil (2 for sausage, 2 for tofu)
4 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh cracked pepper
1/2 c. SoDelicous Shredded Cheese
1/2 c. Vegenaise
1/2 c. Yellow Mustard
Slice bagels, set aside. Rinse and dry spinach leaves. Press tofu, removing extra water to ensure the tofu absorbs the spices added. Once water has been extracted, place tofu block on its side, slice in half. Using a cookie cutter cut out four flowers (2 from each half of the block) set aside. Slice sausage into rounds. Heat frying pan on medium heat add 2 tbsp olive oil to the pan. Once the oil is hot add sausage slowly (just to avoid an encounter with a hot oil splash). Keep sausage flat, turning once brown. Once the sausage has heated through and is browned, set aside on a paper towel on a heatproof plate just to absorb any extra unnecessary oil.
Wipe pan, add 2 tbsp olive oil, heat. In a small bowl combine salt, pepper and nutritional yeast. Coat each tofu flower in mixture on both sides. Sprinkle any extra on top. Allow tofu to cook until coating appears set on bottom, turn to ensure both sides are coated and cooked fully. Again, add any extra spice mixture left over.
While tofu is cooking, toast bagels (only if eating right away) mix Vegenaise, Mustard into a nice creamy, smooth texture, smear on 1 side of toasted bagel. Add SoDelicious cheese to one side of bagel, place in microwave for 30-45 seconds to melt the cheese. Top with spinach leaves, 1 tofu flower, sausage round and you are all set! Eat open face or use the other side of the bagel to make it an official breakfast sandwich!
We hope you love it!
