This hits all the marks! Warm, crunchy, chewy, salty, a bit sweet... you get it all with this one. It's a super easy recipe too!

I got the idea when we stopped by a place called DC Vegetarian in Portland and got some breakfast. I knew I had to recreate it once I got home... and here it is!

Let me know what you think down below. If you make it make sure to tag me on Instagram (@SimnettNutrition) so I can see your version.


What you need (product wise):
2 english muffins (I used whole wheat ones but you do you.)
1 package of medium tofu (soft would work too!)
1 package of smoked tempeh (If you can't find smoked tempeh, sub for Gardein Breakfast sausage - they look like this and are dang delicious http://bit.ly/2nEZFsn)
Daiya block cheese - I used the smoked gouda flavour


Tofu Patty
Cut your tofu block in half. The patties should be 3/4 inch thick. This will allow them to soak up more marinade. Then cut out two circle sized pieces from your tofu block (watch video so this makes sense!).

mix together the following in a small bowl:
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2/3 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 tsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp salt
pinch of black pepper
3 tbsp water

once mixed, add to a shallow dish and place tofu patties on top. Make sure to flip a few times, and squish down so they soak in the flavour. Leave in the fridge overnight (that is what I did) or cook straight away (flavour might not be as good, but still there!).

To cook, pan fry patties on medium heat in a small amount of water or oil, flipping once each side. The patties are delicate!

While the patties are cooking, cut 6 strips of smoked tempeh out and pan fry along with the patties, in the same pan or a different one. Making sure they brown on each side. Turn off heat once everything is cooked on each size.

Cut slices of the cheese out and place some on each warm tofu patty, it may melt in the pan or you may need to place patty in the toaster oven like I did in the video to melt it.

If you are using the gardien breakfast sausages instead of tempeh, cook according to package instructions.

Make sure to toast your english muffins, and once everything is done, assemble your burger!

I put sliced tomato, greens, ketchup and hot sauce on mine... you can go crazy and add whatever you want. Enjoy!

If I am making any type of tofu recipe for a breakfast dish, black salt is a must for me. Complete game changer.

About to make these for the fourth time, especially when guests stay over. Only difference is to use extra firm tofu, which we prefer, and use a 1 cup measuring cup to shape it. Real test will be what happens when I put it in front of my 90 year old father who does not seem to remember this is a plant-based household.

man, im going to try it.. i tried to make tofu so many times and never goes well. Im already able to basically eat everyday good food plant based but i feel like tofu would be a good thing to learn to do it.

If you add black salt instead of sea salt, it will smell like egg too.


ErCatscan . 1 week ago

A little black salt in the marinade would give it an egg flavor

I made these for Sunday breakfast and held my breath until my family took their first bites. Winner!! Used firm tofu (I couldnโ€™t find medium), black salt, veggie breakfast sausage and Daiya cheese. My family is omnivorous but as Iโ€™m head chef they eat my food to amuse me (and are thankful they feel great and have excellent lab results). I enjoy your videos and look forward to watching each and every one of them. Thanks and hereโ€™s to Good Health and tasty food!!

-- Everyone I've heard talk about tofu in the US says stay away, because it's highly GMO, and thus bad for your body. Mainly documentaries and websites. - Your thoughts?

I'm recently vegan and I'm loving your videos! Also my family had a cabin in Parksville as a kid and I grew up in Victoria :) I'm wondering why you don't use oils when you cook? Is it calorie related or are there other reasons? I am very curious to know! Thanks!

Hi Derek, Iโ€™m planning to switch to a vegan diet along with my wife and baby boy. Iโ€™ve been on a keto diet for the past 2 years and Iโ€™m not real sure how to get off the fat for fuel wagon onto the green carb train ... any recommendation from your end would be greatly appreciated. I want to do it right and I donโ€™t want to give it up because I messed up the transition. Thank you

So good. If you miss the egg flavour try adding just a pinch of Black Salt Powder. It is an East Indian spice. Love the videos

From my own personal experience, you know your meal is good when you're jumping up and down while tasting it. Or it's REALLY hot.
