As a vegan, avoiding eggs can be a challenge when it comes to breakfast, but fear not! You can still enjoy your favorite breakfast sandwiches without the eggs. Tofu has always been a great substitute for eggs with its spongy texture and ability to soak up flavors. In this recipe, I use a thin slice of tofu and marinate it in nutritional yeast and spices to achieve an egg-like color and consistency. You could also crumble the tofu up and use it as a scramble, which would be equally delicious in the sandwich, but keep in mind that you just might need a napkin!
Vegan Breakfast Sandwich

-Start by slicing a thin piece of tofu and pressing it to reduce the moisture.
-Mix together nutritional yeast, salt and pepper. Use the mixture to generously coat all sides of the tofu slice.
-Cook the tofu in olive oil or vegan butter over medium heat, flipping it after 2-3 minutes.
-While the tofu is cooking, toast the bagel halves.
-Assemble your sandwich with the avocado, tomato, tofu and lettuce between each half of the bagel.
