Vegan Tofu Benedict

I had a craving for some Veggie Benedict. Being as how I've been vegan for just over a year now (YAY!) I knew I had some work to do.

I had some leftover seitan I made last night in a double batch(used the recipe from the amazing VEGANOMICON, only using my No-Beef stock for the liquid called for)
I didn't want a greek-style Benedict as there is one in The Book of the Food, just a 'plain' one. LOL

I have my own version of something like a tofu scramble
I set about to make a Hollandaise Sauce, but I much prefer the taste of Bernaise with it's light anise flavor (yum tarragon). SO I made this, and it was amazing:

Vegan Hollandaise/Bernaise Sauce
4Tbsp Earth Balance
8oz Plain Soy Yougurt (unsweetened) - or you can probably do half soy yogurt and half vegan cream cheese. *I didn't think the yogurt was creamy enough, so I did add abotu 2 Tbsp of vegan Cream Cheese to it, and that made a good bit of difference.
A dash of Turmeric
a dash of paprika
a dash of lemon zest. I have some that is in powder form, so I use that (Penzy's sells it).
A small dash of lemon juice
a pinch of sugar to take out the bite, to taste, and probably not necessary if you aren't using tart yogurt and you use veg sour cream instead

If you are making Bernaise sauce, add about 1tsp or so of Tarragon. I like it, so I think I add a bit more, but I didn't really measure it.

Directions;
1.Melt the margarine on med heat. Stir in yogurt or whatever variation you are using. Mix till all incorporated. Turn heat down to low.
2. Add Turmeric, Paprika, lemon zest. Stir till incorporated and well mixed.
3. Add Tarragon and let sit, stirring regularly maybe 3min's and set aside.

For my Vegan Canadaian Bacon:
I used the recipe for it from Veganomicon. I then simmered thin slices of it on the stove in:
olive oil, maybe 2-3 Tbsp
1/4c of Braggs (soy or tamari would also work)
a few drops of liquid smoke
1tbsp pure maple syrup
about 1-2 tbsp nutritional yeast.
Mix all togetther (I did it in my pan), add sliced seitan rounds, and flip to be sure both sides are coated
Simmer on stove, over med-low heat turning/flipping occasionally till browned and crispy, but not tough.

My tofu scramble slices - very lazy version:
Drain and press Tofu, then cut into about 1/2" slices across
Spray skillet with oil, heat over med. add tofu sprinkle with Turmeric, spray with Braggs, paprika, thyme and oregano (or whatever spices you like, I vary what I use sometimes)
flip, swirl in pan, flip after a few minutes, make sure both sides get spices (I sometimes add extra to the side that was first down and flip again).
Tis is good for wraps, on english mufin breakfast sandwiches, tofu in a basket (some variation of toad in a hole/eggy in a basket, but with tofu instead).


Toast some english muffins, then place V.Canadian Bacon, then Tofu slices and ladel or spoon sauce over and serve. MMMM. Enjoy.
