Tofu Benny

Behold!  The Tofu Benny from Vegan Brunch!  I might be a little too excited about this, but it’s only because it was so, so good!  And even better, it was a lot easier to make than I thought it would be.  To save time I did end up using English Muffins for the base rather than home fries, but I can’t wait to try them out when I have more time.

I was a little worried about this, because I’m not really a huge tofu fan, and I didn’t have any black salt which is used to give the tofu an “eggy” taste.  Even without the salt, I thought this tofu was really tasty, and I loved that it didn’t require complicated preparation, which tends to intimidate me when it comes to tofu.

The tomato was the perfect balance to the tofu and sauce.  It kept the dish light, but added great flavor and texture.  And despite the amount of sauce I used, this still managed to not seem overly heavy to me.

I don’t think I ever had Eggs Benedict in my pre-vegan days, but it’s one of those foods that suddenly sounds fantastic to me in it’s vegan form.  Biscuits and Gravy is another one of those, although I’ve always gone pretty crazy for biscuits.  As you can see, I practically licked the plate clean, and was thrilled to have leftovers for lunch the next day!  Breakfast for dinner makes me happy.

  1. I’ve been wanting to try this recipe for quite some time now, but have been scared off by the multiple components. Good idea to start off with an English muffin, it already seems so much more approachable ;)

  2. i was craving tofu benedict this weekend. now i want it even more. haven’t tried the vegan brunch recipe. now i have to!

  3. I am salivating! This looks so good! Me want breakfast for dinner!

  4. Holy, wow! That’s a beautiful picture!

  5. I can’t believe I haven’t tried that one yet. I can never find black salt, so I usually leave it out of the “eggy” Vegan Brunch recipes. They still taste good to me!

  6. Your tofu benny looks beautiful! I’ve never had eggs benedict either, but the VB version does sound fantastic. Someday I will take the time to make all the components and try this, too! Though mine will probably not look as pretty.

  7. Isn’t it funny how some of the foods that we passed over while omnis suddenly seem mighty appealing now that we’re vegans and can make awesome vegan versions? That happens to me all the time!

    The benny looks fantastic, and I’m glad to hear that the sauce didn’t seem overly heavy. Hmm… I feel inspired to whip out my copy of VB now…!

  8. I’m going to have to make this- it’s always been on my Vegan Brunch to-make list, but for some reason I assumed it was very time consuming to prepare. Yours looks awesome!

  9. Hi, Sarah S.! It really isn’t that difficult to make, but maybe a little time consuming. If you plan ahead (mainly for pressing and marinating the tofu), it comes together pretty easily.

  10. That looks so good. I have to admit, I don’t own VB but now I really want my overdue copy.

  11. That looks fantastic! I definitely need to crack open my copy of Vegan Brunch!
