I fully support the theory that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. All the while, I am a busybody who wants to get moving as soon as I wake up. That means I need to find awesome breakfasts that are quick and easy to make.

Tofu Benedict looks pretty fancy, but it’s easy to make. It becomes really easy if you buy the right ingredients ahead of time. I suggest getting pre-made and flavored plant based bacon or sausage (or sub an avocado), extra firm tofu, and english muffins. Then all you’ll need is some plant based mayonnaise and a couple of spices to whip up a hollandaise sauce. If you’ve got some greens and small tomatoes to throw on top, fabulous! If not, your Tofu Benedict will taste delicious all the same.

Vegan Eggs Benedict

While there are mixed accounts of whom actually invented the Eggs Benedict, many believe it was invented in New York in the late 1800’s. Traditional Eggs Benedict includes toast or muffins, poached eggs, ham or bacon and hollandaise sauce.

This wildly popular American breakfast has been altered in just about every way possible. You might see a Crab Cake Benedict on the menu if you visit the east coast, or a Scottish version with black pudding instead of ham. Our personal favorite variation? Plant based Tofu Benedict! All of that deliciousness with none of the guilt? That’s what we consider a win-win.

Easy Vegan Hollandaise Sauce

Vegan hollandaise sauce is easy to make. Our recipe only has 8 ingredients, all of which are common plant based staples. If you’ve got plant based mayonnaise and turmeric you’ll be ready to rock and roll. Just add mayo, turmeric, water, salt, pepper, sugar and cayenne into a sauce pan and whisk together over medium heat.

This Tofu Benedict recipe is quick and easy to make, and the hollandaise sauce is vegan.


  • 1 Tbsp 1 Vegetable oil

  • 5 oz 5 tofu, sliced into 1/4″ strips & pressed (about 1/3 block tofu)

  • 2 whole 2 english muffins

  • 4 strips 4 Sweet Earth Bacon (you can use any plant based meat or sub avocado)

  • 1/4 cup 1/4 arugula

  • 1/4 cup 1/4 tomatoes, sliced

  • Vegan Hollandaise Sauce
  • 1/3 cup 1/3 mayonnaise

  • 1 Tbsp 1 water

  • 1 Tbsp 1 butter

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 cayenne

  • 1/8 tsp 1/8 sugar

  • 2 tsp 2 turmeric

  • 1/8 tsp 1/8 pepper

  • 1/4 tsp 1/4 salt


  • Cut your tofu into rectangles that are about 1/4″ thick. Place onto a kitchen towel, fold half the towel over the tofu and gently press to release the liquid. Sprinkle the tofu with a dash of salt and pepper on each side, gently patting into the tofu.
  • Whisk mayo, water and butter together in a saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter has melted add the remaining hollandaise sauce ingredients to the pan (cayenne, sugar, turmeric, pepper & salt). Whisk until combined and warm. Cover with a lid and set aside.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a large pan over medium heat. Once vegetable oil is shimmering add the tofu. Cook until the bottom of the tofu is lightly browned or about 3 minutes.
  • Flip the tofu over and add your bacon or other plant based meat. Flip the bacon over after a minute or two. If you have room in the pan you can add your english muffins face down for the last minute to warm them up.
  • Put your english muffin halves face up on a plate. If you’ll be adding arugula or other greens put those down first. Top with bacon, tofu, hollandaise and tomatoes.
