Ingredients and substitution notes 

Here are a few notes on the ingredients and what their role is in the dish:

  • Flour. You can switch this out for gluten-free flour if you’d prefer that.

  • Onion powder. Also a savory contributor, this ingredient greatly contributes to the overall umami taste.
  • Turmeric. For color, glow, and all its other benefits.
  • Tofu. Choose extra firm tofu so that it holds its shape.
  • Olive oil. Switch out olive oil for avocado oil if you prefer; both are healthy options.
  • Silken tofu. Gives the sauce its silky-smooth texture.
  • Vegan margarine. Choose a high-quality margarine made with good oils.
  • Better-than-bouillon. A major flavor contributor, you guys know how much I love this ingredient.

  • Avocado. Adds to the luxury and richness of this dish.

Vegan Eggs Benedict Recipe variations and add-ins

This tasty recipe acts as a base for a variety of variations; here are a few of my favorites:

  1. Spinach and mushroom: Pan-fry a couple of oyster mushrooms and a cup of spinach, and replace the avocado and tomato with these elements.
  2. Roasted balsamic tomatoes: Roast a few cherry tomatoes with garlic and balsamic vinegar until they are soft and jammy. 
  3. Basil pesto: Spread a little basil pesto over the base of your English muffin.
  4. Sweet potato base: Use a roasted or baked slice of sweet potato instead of an English muffin. 
  5. Sriracha benedict: Drizzle a little of this spicy sauce over the hollandaise for a hot twist.

Top tips

Here are a few top tips for getting your best vegan eggs benedict:

  • Press the tofu down before using it to help extract any excess liquid.
  • Season the tofu well, don’t skip on any of the seasoning suggestions.
  • Toast your English muffin until golden brown.
  • Use a non-stick pan to cook the tofu; this will make the cooking process much easier.

Make ahead of instructions and storage

You can slice your eggplant sticks the day before and pop them into an airtight container in the fridge. This is a great way to save a little prep time.

You can definitely prepare your tofu ahead of time and get all the spices together and weighed out before cooking them. Store these elements in a sealed container, especially if you’re going to pre-cut the tofu. 

You can make up your lovely sauce ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator. It will keep well for around two to three days.

  • Roasted potatoes: potatoes are delicious as an extra side with this dish.
  • Sauteed greens: pan-fry a little kale and spinach with some chopped onions and seasoning.
  • Salad: if you’re serving this as a brunch item, a salad with baby spinach leaves as a base is really delicious.
