Breakfast Sandwich

Okay, as a holistic health counselor I'm going to tell you that this isn't really the ideal meal to start your day out with. It's full of processed foods and gluten. But as a person who occasionally craves something a little greasy and needs a little bit of comfort food from time to time, I will tell you that this is a really delicious breakfast. I've made it for house guests - vegans and omnivores alike love it.

Here's how to make it: Drain a package of tofu. I usually wrap it in a kitchen towel the night before and leave it in the fridge, and it's ready to use in the morning. Thinly slice the tofu and then marinade in a little bit of olive oil, Braggs Liquid Aminos and apple cider vinegar for a few minutes. Then fry until crispy on both sides. While that's cooking, heat up a few slices of vegan "bacon". I use Lightlife Smart Bacon. For the cheese, you can either melt a little cheese on the tofu while it's cooking, or you can toast your bagel and melt the cheese over it in the toaster oven. I spread a little bit of Earth Balance on both halves of the bagel, then add two slices of "bacon" and two slabs of tofu to each bagel. And then, eat and enjoy!

  1. Sounds awesome, must definitely try this one morning.

  2. Oh, man this looks really good, and is still obviously better for you than the meaty version from fast food places.
