Hey everyone, it’s Lauren and John from hot for food and we’re gonna get you ready for St. Patrick’s Day! For, not, the night time, but for after St. Patty’s Day. Yes, we’re gonna do a hangover brunch for you. We’re gonna make a smoked tofu benny with vegan hollandaise sauce. So this is a very simple recipe. Anyone can make it, you just need a blender. Doesn’t even have to be a fancy blender. What goes in there? Lots of stuff. To start we’re gonna make the hollandaise sauce. With what? Almonds! Do you ever look at hollandaise sauce? It’s really bad for you. Real hollandaise sauce? What is it? Butter? It’s a lot of butter and it’s a lot of egg yolks. And then you take those that butter and egg yolk and then you put that on an egg. It’s like- It’s kinda gross. So for the base of the hollandaise sauce we’re gonna use sliced blanched almonds. You don’t need to soak them because they’re gonna blend up really smooth since they’re already soft and so small. So, it’s half a cup into the blender. And then half a cup of almond milk. Or you can use soy milk. And then a tablespoon of coconut oil. One and a half tablespoons of lemon juice. Two tablespoons of nutritional yeast. You’re gonna add half a teaspoon of ground mustard. A quarter teaspoon of turmeric. Quarter teaspoon of salt. And a quarter teaspoon of white pepper. And now you’re gonna blend this together until it’s really smooth. [blender noise] [music] We’re gonna heat this up cos’ we’re gonna make this right now and we’re not gonna be hungover so we’re gonna make it now. But you would refrigerate that and heat it up before you wanna eat your smoked tofu benny. So where we come from, up here in Canada, eh, we can get this smoked tofu. Er- It’s already pre-seasoned, it’s smoky, adds a nice flavor to the “egg” benny. Erm- If you don’t have smoked tofu, you can just use regular firm tofu and season it however you like. Maybe with some liquid smoke, or just salt and pepper, some nutritional yeast. You do you. We’re gonna do us. You can even use yeah medium, like softer. Whatevs. You can really- This is kinda like do whatever you want. The main important part is the English muffin and the hollandaise sauce. Sir Hollandaise. And anything else you put on underneath between those two layers is up to you. So we’re gonna chop ours in half. And then again, down the centre. So give us four little egg medallions. So just get all your toppings ready. We’re gonna do fresh tomato and sautéed spinach. Just have your spinach on standby. As soon as your tofu is done cooking, we’re gonna heat this through. For the tofu, you’re gonna lightly oil a pan, and brown the tofu on each side. [music] When the tofu is done, you can set it aside. And while the pan is still hot, we’re gonna add our spinach. Our leftover lemon juice, and we’re gonna lightly cook it. [music] Hangover brunch is done. Smoked tofu benny with vegan hollandaise. Breakfast is, and was, and still is my favourite meal of the day. And I was worried about becoming vegan cos I was really gonna miss eggs but like- This is like- You don’t miss eggs. I don’t miss eggs. This is so good. And people are always like, ungh, tofu. But like look at the amazing things you can do with tofu, people. Oh my god, that sauce is so good. The sauce is incredible. [cutting the tofu benny] And there’s nothing bad in it. Like you can just eat that sauce, you can just drink that sauce. [tasting the tofu benny] Oh yeah. It’s perfect. You guys are gonna freak over this one when you make it! [music] What is this? Chives. [laughs] So good. Wowza. Traditional eggs benedict isn’t really that easy. Poaching eggs, and being delicate and all that kinda stuff. So, this is kinda like a cheater’s version but it’s also plant-based. You’re gonna love it. Get real drunk on St. Patty’s Day and then look forward to eating your smoked tofu benny with vegan hollandaise. If you premake the sauce, you’re going- you can make this in 10 minutes.
