Vegan “Egg” Breakfast Sandwich

Okay, friends. This is a game-changing recipe.

Right before I went all in on the vegan diet one year ago, I was eating over-easy eggs or scrambled eggs almost daily.  It was really hard for me to give them up. But I knew I couldn’t start a vegan website if I was eating eggs, so I sacrificed my delicious breakfast sandwiches for the greater good.

In a years time, I’ve figured out that pan-fried tofu with the right spices and condiments tastes exactly like the eggs I ate on the daily . Plus, there’s no cholesterol in this breakfast sandwich! Woohoo!

Hearty, warming and takes you back to childhood, eating sausage, egg & cheese breakfast sandwiches, but without all the cholesterol!

  4. 2 slices of bread
  5. 1-2 Tbsp vegan mayo

Instructions
  1. Place two slices of bread in toaster and cook until lightly browned.
  2. While bread is toasting, remove tofu from package and drain excess water. Place tofu on a clean towel and press to remove excess moisture.
  3. Turn frying pan on medium low heat (you can add oil to the pan to help with sticking or go oil-free if you prefer!)
  4. Slice tofu into 1/2 inch thick slices, and place on heated frying pan.
  5. Sprinkle on half of the amount of garlic powder, turmeric powder*, paprika, salt and pepper. Let tofu cook on each side until browned (about 4-5 minutes). Flip over and add remaining spices. Cook 4-5 more minutes. Keep warm in the oven.
  6. Slice vegan sausage into patties and brown both sides.
  7. Add vegan mayo and mustard to toast. Place cheese, tofu and vegan sausage onto toast.
Notes
  1. *Whenever you use turmeric (fresh or powder), ALWAYS add a little bit of black pepper. The oil in pepper activates the beneficial qualities of turmeric and makes it 2,000x more bio-avaliable to our bodies!
