Vegan Eggs Benedict

Serves 8

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound extra firm tofu

  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 1/4 cup vegan margarine

  • 8 ounces non-dairy sour cream

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • 4 vegan whole grain English muffins, toasted

  • 8 slices of vegan Canadian bacon


Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. and spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Drain tofu and place it on a plate lined with paper towels. Set a second plate on top of tofu and set a heavy cookbook on top to help press liquid out of tofu (this will firm it up).

  3. Cut tofu into 8 slices and arrange them in a single layer in prepared baking dish.

  4. In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, salt, pepper, and olive oil and pour the mixture over the tofu.

  5. Bake tofu for 20 minutes, basting it every 5 minutes, and flipping it after 10 minutes.

  6. Pour off any excess liquid and bake the tofu for 3 to 4 more minutes or until it is browned.

  7. Meanwhile, melt margarine in a small saucepan over medium heat.

  8. Whisk in the sour cream, paprika, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Cook just until heated through (don't bring it to a boil).

  9. Top each English muffin half with a slice of tofu, Canadian bacon, and a generous spoonful of the sauce. Serve immediately.
