You can eat this delicious, high protein and nutrient rich Tofu Breakfast Sandwich naked (without the bread), as an open-face sandwich or as a full sandwich. This is a great, high energy way to start your day. Plus, it makes leftovers that you can quickly heat up for your busy morning schedule.
We originally made this recipe with an english muffin, but it’s hard to find those without oil, milk and/or eggs so we switched it to a whole grain bread sandwich. Whole grains are healthier anyway.
The bread in our pictures is a whole wheat bread with chia seeds. We get it from a local baker here in Cuenca, Ecuador called ArteSana Panadería y Pastelería. They aren’t a vegan baker, but they do make delicious vegan bread.
We like to eat this as a breakfast sandwich, but you can eat it for lunch or dinner, too. We used to put vegan butter on our sandwiches until we realized how much oil and how many calories vegan butter has. Now we either buy really high quality bread that doesn’t need anything added to it, or we use a nut butter, jam or hummus, depending on what we’re eating. Some of our Vegan Hummus or White Bean Dip or Spread would go great on this tofu breakfast sandwich.
This breakfast meal has 16 grams of protein, 8 grams of fiber, 19% RDA Iron, 50% Vitamin C and 14% Calcium. Pair it with a bowl of fresh or frozen fruit and this makes one filling breakfast. I can’t think of a better way to start your day than with a nutrient dense tofu breakfast sandwich like this.
If you’re on a weight loss plan, you can skip the avocado to reduce the fat content and calories.
