A Scrambled Casserole

Breakfast/Brunch is one of my favorite meals but let's be honest... it's not exactly the most vegan friendly meal when it comes to dining out.  Today is Easter Sunday and a lot of people celebrate with a big family brunch which means lots of eggs/egg dishes.  Well I've got a great eggless brunch dish for you. 

I personally like it better than what I remember about scrambled eggs.  The texture is similar to that of scrambled eggs and it's combined with all kinds of breakfast yummies like tempeh bacon and hash browns!!

Here’s the recipe!

1 tsp. Extra virgin olive oil
1 Red bell pepper diced
1 Yellow bell pepper diced
1 (6oz) package of Tempeh Bacon, chopped
1 Block firm tofu
½ Cup chopped green onions
½ Cup Daiya shredded cheddar cheese
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
2 Large russet potatoes, washed, grated, and rinsed OR 1 (16oz) bag frozen hash browns
1 tsp. Garlic powder
1 tsp. Onion powder
1 tsp Turmeric

Pre-heat the oven to 420ยบ F.

Pat the block of tofu dry and slice it into 4 equal pieces. 

Using a paper towel or lined kitchen towel, press the tofu firmly to remove moisture. 

Working over a large mixing bowl, crumble the tofu using your fingers. Add the vegan cheese, garlic powder, turmeric, green onions and onion powder.

In a skillet heat the olive oil and add the tempeh bacon and peppers, stirring until the peppers are slightly browned. 

Add the peppers and tempeh to the tofu mixture.

Using the same skillet get the high heat oil hot and add the potatoes. 

Stir the potatoes constantly without pressing down on them until they are browned. 

Add them to the tofu mixture and stir gently until well incorporated. 

Distribute the mixture evenly into a 13x9” baking pan.**  Bake for 20 minutes or until it’s hot.

**You can make this dish ahead of time to this point, cover with foil, refrigerate overnight, and bake it in the morning.

I like to top this with more chopped green onions, ketchup, old bay, or even some sriracha! Enjoy!
