EGGLESS EGG ENGLISH MUFFIN SANDWHICHES
Cooking with tofu is actually really easy. You just replace it wherever you normally would use eggs (like in sandwiches and scrambles and stuff–not baking!). If you do proper research on the health of soy you will be able to make a decision on whether or not you feel comfortable consuming it. Personally, I like to reach to peer-reviewed articles instead of shared face book posts written by moms like me, but like anything processed we try to limit consumption to a couple times a week.
These are super simple to make and really tasty as well! Soy does offer a complete protein and it easily imitates eggs. For the cheese I like to lay it on the tofu while it’s cooking to help the melting process. If we are in a rush ill just pop it into the microwave for a couple of seconds. We used the Daiya cheese because we don’t have many options here in Calgary but I also like the way it tastes once it melts, much better than uncooked. I’m going to work at ordering and trying some new cheeses so I can hopefully be a better help for you all.
I hope you like these, they are one of our favourites. I also serve mine with ketchup and add tomatoes to it as well. Feel free to modify however you want.
- 2 english muffins
- Vegan margarine
- 1/2 pack of extra firm tofu
- 2 slices of Daiya cheese (or any non dairy cheese-I like this one cause it melts and tastes like cheese once melted..don't bother trying it unmelted 🙂 ).
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Add fresh tomatoes or veggies to your eggs.
- You can add vegan coconut bacon if you want as well.
- Cook the crumbled tofu on a pan on medium heat until golden.
- Toast the english muffin, add margarine, then add "eggs" and "cheese". See notes.
- Either melt the cheese on the eggs slowly on the pan or microwave on the sandwhich for a couple of seconds. This will keep the eggs from crumbling everywhere as well.
- I also like to crumble the tofu as I don't like eating slices of tofu other wise. It is personal preference but this works best.
- You can choose whatever "cheese" you like. We don't have a lot of vegan options here in Calgary but I really like the Daiya because it melts and when it's melted it tastes like real cheese. When it's not melted it isn't the best flavour so I encourage melting!
