We make Scrambled Tofu about once a week. It is my kids & husband's favorite breakfast. I wanted to switch it up a bit and try to cook my scrambled tofu and potatoes into a handheld muffin that my family could easily take with them on the run. This idea worked so well, it is now their favorite breakfast above the plain scrambled tofu. This dish is also easy to prepare and pop in the oven while you get everyone ready in the morning, (or prepare the night before and reheat). 



Recipe:

Crust:

2 large potatoes, shredded (Should equal about 3 cups)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup Nutritional yeast
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. Paprika
Salt and Pepper to taste

Filling:

2 cups kale
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/3 cup chunky salsa
14 oz. Extra Firm Tofu, pressed*
1 tsp. turmeric
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp paprika
Black salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
3/4 cup Vegan cheese sauce (or shredded vegan cheddar cheese of choice )


Directions:

Preheat oven to 400°.

Squeeze excess liquid from potatoes using cheese cloth or a clean dish towel.

Mix all ingredients for the potato crust together in a mixing bowl.

Spray muffin pan with non stick spray.

Press potato mixture into muffin cups evenly, forming a crust. Set aside.

Combine all ingredients for the filling, EXCEPT the peas & cheese sauce , in a food processor.

Process on high speed until smooth, about 25 seconds. Mixture should be the consistency of a chunky veggie cream cheese.

Cook tofu mixture & peas in a non stick pan over high heat about 5 minutes, just until firm.

Press tofu mixture evenly into potato crusts.

Top with vegan cheese sauce

Baked for 25-30 minutes.

Makes a dozen individual quiches.

*If you don't have a tofu press, there are several ways to remove excess liquid. The quickest way is to squeeze it out using a clean dish towel or cheese cloth. Since the tofu in this recipe is just going in a food processor, you can press it this way. If you were using it for slicing or cubing in a recipe, this method would not work.
