Breakfast Sammies

Breakfast.  Let's be honest... Not exactly the most vegan friendly meal to get on the go.  If you go to a typical restaurant or diner for breakfast chances are you can have toast/bagel with jam or plain, hashbrowns (if they aren't cooked in butter), fruit, and maybe oatmeal (if it's not cooked with milk).  Personally. That sounds LAME! Why can't vegans have the same REAL breakfast options with some protein or at least some substance?

How much do you love that mug!? hehe
Not to worry! I've got you covered! All this week I have been on a breakfast sandwich kick. My mornings have been so packed with protein! My carnivore friends should be jealous. Delicious sandwiches, with all (or more) protein and none of the cholesterol! Just to show you how quick and easy breakfast on the go can be, here are a few combination to make your own vegan breakfast sammies!

For All Sammies I used:

Rudi's Organic Whole Wheat English Muffins
Extra Firm Tofu (sliced 1/4"-1/8" thick and pressed between paper towels to remove moisture)
Earth Balance Soy Free Margarine
Nutritional Yeast
Salt and Pepper
Tumeric/Onion Powder/Granulated Garlic -optional
Sriracha (I love a little kick in the morning!)

For my "Meat" (pick your favorite):
gardein Breakfast Patty
Lightlife "Fakin Bacon" (tempeh bacon)

Extras (all are optional pick you favorite or a combination of the below):
Daiya Cheddar slices
Sautéed Spinach
Sautéed Mushrooms
Tomato Slices
Sautéed Onions

How much easier could this be? 

In a large pan over medium heat, put 2 tsp of canola oil on one part of the pan.  Put your breakfast patty or tempeh bacon there. 

On another part of the pan, add some Earth Balance, put your slice of tofu. Season tofu with salt and pepper and onion powder/granulated garlic and a SLIGHT SPRINKLE of tumeric--its here for it's color and is totally optional!

If you want any of the sautéed veggies, add them to the pan with a little Earth Balance and season. (1 pan meal! That's why I said a LARGE PAN!!) Flip your tempeh bacon/breakfast patty and your tofu at about the same time. 

Toast your English muffin (or toast or bagel). If you are using the Daiya, put it on the breakfast patty after you start your toast.

Once that toaster pops, you're ready to assemble.  Butter your toast, on the bottom put your "meat", top with tofu, and finally your veggies. Sprinkle your top toast with some nutritional yeast and you are set! If you're not on the run, serve with sliced tomato or avocado and a potato hash/Hashbrowns.
