Meatless Monday: Eggs & Bacon (aka tofu scramble & tempeh bacon)


Our last minute movie decisions on Saturday night led to making this dish. With nothing in the fridge & only an hour before seeing ‘Rush’ I decided to put together something with what we had. Oddly enough, whenever I am in a crunch to make dinner, breakfast seems to happen! Needless to say, it was tasty like usual & it turned out to be an interesting dish!

Lets get to it…

  1. Press & dry your tofu (I just lay the tofu on a plate with a few paper towels underneath, cover with paper towels & top off with a heavy plate – do this for about 15minutes)
  2. Chop 1 onion & sauté with 1t vegan butter til edges are browned
  3. Then crumble the pressed tofu into the same pan
  4. Add 3t Braggs amino acid & 1t turmeric to the pan- stir & let liquid get absorbed (lower heat if needed)
  5. Fold in 1C chopped kale & 1/4C nutritional yeast – stir (if you want to add S/P I would do so now)

Remove from heat & let cool.

Tempeh Bacon Recipe: 

  1. Thinly slice your block of tempeh into bacon-like strips
  2. In a medium sized bowl combine 1T maple syrup, 2t Braggs amino acid & 1t apple cider vinegar  – add in thinly sliced tempeh & cover (I just let the tempeh sit for a few minutes but you can marinate for longer if you want)
  3. Clean out the pan used above & then add 1T EVOO
  4. When the oil is sizzling add in the marinated tempeh slices
  5. Sauté each side for about 2minutes (or until brown)

Plate tofu scramble & tempeh bacon, enjoy!
