Tofu Breakfast Sandwiches

Back in the day I used to love egg and cheese breakfast sandwiches. There are times when I crave that breakfast-y yum and I've found the perfect solution. Tofu sandwiches. Super easy, quick and delicious. Although these make for a great breakfast food, feel free to enjoy at any time of the day.

Tofu Breakfast Sandwiches

  • 4, 1/4" slices of extra firm tofu 
  • garlic powder
  • tumeric
  • crushed red pepper
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 slices sprouted whole grain bread
Heat a large skillet over high heat and spray lightly with cooking spray. Season one side of your tofu slices with the spices, I am usually very generous with the tumeric and then go light on the others. No measuring needed here, just go ahead and sprinkle it on, eyeballing as you go based on your own taste preferences. Once pan is hot (shouldn't take long) place each tofu slice seasoned side down on the pan. Turn down the heat to medium/medium high. Now season the second side of your tofu. You'll want to cook each side of tofu until it's a nice golden color, but be careful not to burn it. Toast your bread slices and when the tofu is done, arrange it on your bread to make a perfect sandwich. 

Now, keep in mind this is for a basic sandwich. My favorite way to have this is with a generous helping of cheddar Daiya all melty in between the slices of tofu. I also enjoy adding some vegan bacon strips from time to time. 

Here's a handy list of other possibly topping and spices:

-vegan bacon
-tomato slices
-cheddar Daiya 
-sauteed onions

-chili powder
-smoked salt
-Old Bay
-smoked paprika

Other possible sandwich vehicles
-whole wheat wrap
-corn tortilla
-english muffin
