Vegan Breakfast: Tofu on Toast

I was in the mood for something savory and filling this morning, thus tofu on toast was born. Bonus: I accidentally kind of made a face with my meal. If you look at it right, the green peppers look like eyes and the tomato positioned between the tofu and the toast looks like a tongue sticking out. Kind of scary, but mostly delicious.

  • Extra firm tofu
  • 1/2 green pepper
  • 1 slice of tomato and a few diced chunks
  • 1 tbsp. garlic
  • 1 piece of crusty eggless French bread
  • Shredded vegan Monterey Jack cheese
  • Tabasco sauce (optional)
To Make

Cut your piece of French bread open and toast in a 400 degree oven for several minutes. If you have a toaster oven, bully for you! That's even better. Slice a piece of tofu lengthwise about 1/2 thick. Lay the tofu flat and cut out a circular shape with the rim of a small cup. Marinate the tofu in soy sauce and black pepper for a few minutes. Meanwhile in a small saute pan, combine your garlic, green pepper and diced tomato. Cook over medium heat until the veggies turn tender. In a separate pan, saute your tofu in a well-oiled pan, flipping occasionally to fully cook either side. Remove your toast from the oven and plate. I sprinkled a little fake cheese over the toast and topped that with a slice of raw tomato. I placed the tofu on top and covered with the green peppers and diced tomato. Serve with your favorite hot sauce or vegan Hollandaise sauce.
