Vegan Breakfast Sandwich

Spice up your vegan diet with a delicious sandwich you’ll love!

Below is a recipe for a vegan breakfast sandwich including tofu scramble and tempeh bacon. Personally I would opt to ditch the mushrooms and the gluten free bread, but that’s because I view both as a major threat to a civilized way of life. Also it might spice things up to add a vegan cheese like Daiya.

Makes 4 sandwiches


1 (16-ounce) container firm water-packed tofu, drained, pressed
2 teaspoons olive oil, plus more for brushing tomatoes
1 small onion, sliced
2 ounces sliced shiitake mushrooms
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons wheat-free soy sauce
2 medium tomatoes, cut into 1-inch-thick slices
Salt and pepper to taste
8 slices smoked tempeh bacon
8 slices gluten-free bread


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place tofu between two paper towels and press out the water. Heat olive oil in a saute pan and sauce onion and mushrooms for 3 minutes.

2. Crumble tofu in pan and add nutritional yeast, onion powder, turmeric, garlic and soy sauce. Cook for about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Coat tomatoes with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and roast in the oven for 15 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking time.

4. Crisp “bacon” in a pan. Divide two “bacon” strips on four slices of bread. Top with a tomato slice and some of the tofu scramble and remaining slice of bread.
