Breakfast Vegg Sandwich

If you’re longing for those delightful deli sausage, egg, and cheese sandwiches, fear not! Allow me to introduce you to the Breakfast Vegg Sandwich that is sure to put a smile on your face! This hearty and satisfying sandwich is jam-packed with protein, making it an ideal choice for kick-starting your day with gusto. Delicate layers of tofu, are accompanied by breakfast sausage patties and plant-based cheese, all perfectly stacked between slices of toasted English Muffins. It’s breakfast magic in every mouthful!

Using a tofu variety that is not super firm will give you a texture very similar to scrambled eggs. A sprinkling of turmeric powder gives the tofu “eggs” amazing color.

If you want to go all out, adding just a tiny dash of Indian black salt, Kala Namak, will give the tofu that sulfuric, eggy flavor. Kala Namak is a volcanic black salt harvested in the foothills of the Himalayas. It is composed of sodium chloride along with trace amounts of various sulfuric compounds, which give this salt a distinctive eggy taste. The salt crystals appear brownish-pink to dark violet when whole, but change to pink when ground up. Because the salt has a very pungent aroma, you only need to use a pinch in your recipe.
