‘EGGLESS” BENEDICT

EARTH ANGEL VEGAN’S “EGGLESS BENEDICT” is  great for a Sunday breakfast or brunch. This meal takes a few steps but it is delicious and filling.  It starts with a toasted 100% whole wheat English muffin… I like Thomas’s.  Next comes a delicious tofu scramble and then steamed spinach.  I top it off with a rich gravy made from garbanzo flour and some Sriracha!

This Recipe serves 4

4 whole wheat English muffins (Toast before serving)

Garbanzo Flour Gravy

1 cup water

1/3 cup garbanzo bean flour

1 tablespoon funky chicken powder (recipe on this site)

1 teaspoon low sodium soy sauce

black pepper to taste

Whisk all the ingredients into a small sauce pan and cook over low to medium heat until think and bubbly … Add water to thin if it becomes too thick.  Make sure you cook it long enough so that it is not gritty… the flour needs to cook.  How do you know?  Taste it silly!

Tofu Scramble

1 block firm organic tofu

1/2 bell pepper chopped (red, green, or yellow)

1/2 onion chopped

2 tablespoons dijon mustard

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon black salt (kala namak) optional

1 teaspoon turmeric

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

1 tablespoon dried or fresh parsley

2 large handfuls of fresh baby spinachimg_0919

Add your chopped onion and bell pepper to a fry pan (I use my scan pan).  Over medium heat start to cook onion and pepper while you get the tofu ready.  Add a splash of water if you are not comfortable dry cooking the onion and pepper.

Place the block of tofu in a bowl and cover with the remaining ingredients.  I find this easier to mix with clean hands but you can do it with a fork.  You need to make the tofu mixture into coarse crumbles.

Once it is all mixed and the consistency of scrambled eggs… put in in your fry pan with the onion and pepper and start to cook it on low.  It will give off some water but keep cooking and stirring until it has given off almost all of its water and may even start to stick and brown on the bottom of the pan.  It also should turn a nice yellow color. This will take about 10 minutes.

You can add your spinach now or steam it separately and put it on top.
