WHAT? Another tofu scramble recipe? Yes. But this one is different for a few reasons…
- It has a ton of maple syrup in it, and…
- It’s a lot lighter on the veggies than my other versions, because…
- It’s gonna go on a French Toast Sandwich!
Yep. A sandwich made of delicious french toast (think bananas and So Delicious Cashew Milk!) and my Vegan Maple Sweet Tofu Scramble.
That recipe will be along on Friday, when I review So Delicious’s new cashew lineup (their cashew ice cream is to freakin’ die for). In the meantime you can drool over this perfection:
Extra firm tofu, Daiya cheddar, maple syrup, sweet potatoes, and kale.
I went a little light on the veggies because this IS a french toast sandwich after all. No one will look at it and say “What? Are you sure there are enough vegetables on there?“. Nope, they’ll be too busy saying “Holy monkey, is that a FRENCH TOAST SANDWICH!?”
I love how this little piece of kale climbed on top and is holding on for dear life. He’s like The Little Kale That Could!
Okay, so I’ll see you Wednesday and we can bond over some syrupy french toast, ‘kay?
- 1 small sweet potato, chopped into small bites
- 1 heaping cup chopped kale
- 1 tub firm tofu, well pressed and chopped into large cubes
- 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
- 1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 3/4 cup vegan cheddar cheese (I used Daiya shreds, they melt wonderfully)
- Water saute the sweet potatoes over medium/high heat for 10-12 minutes, then add the kale along with a pinch or two of salt. Continue to add more water as needed. Continue to cook until the potatoes are tender, another 8-10 minutes depending on their size.
- Make sure the water is mostly evaporated and use your spatula to push the veggies to the edges of the pan. Add the tofu to the center and break it down into smallish crumbles with your spatula, and stir the salt and nooch and maple syrup into it.
- Stir everything together and and add the cheese. Reduce heat to low and cover, and let the cheese melt. Serve warm!
- You can of course add more veggies, but if you're planning to use this as part of the upcoming French Toast Sandwich, I wouldn't add anything with too strong a flavor, such as garlic or onion.
