Happy Valentine’s Day: Vegan “Eggs” Benedict

Before I left for Thailand I had the opportunity to film a cooking segment with Supreme Master TV for Valentine’s Day. It was a ton of fun shooting with their team. I got a bunch of vegan friends together at Loving Hut to have a viewing party. Of course I only took photos of our delicious food and not of our beautiful group, oops. Review on Loving Hut coming soon! Now onto the food and video! Check their website to see what time it’s airing online in your location. In Los Angeles, it’s 11:30/5:30 am/pm.

Vegan Tofu “Eggs” Benedict
Serves 4 – 6

8 slices of bread, toasted
2 tomatoes, ¼ inch slices
1 bunch of kale, chopped and blanched
Tempeh bacon
Tofu scramble
Hollandaise sauce

To assemble the Benedict:

1. Place toasted bread on a plate.
2. Layer with tomato slices, tempeh bacon, kale, and then tofu scramble.
3. Top with no-oil hollandaise sauce.
4. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Tempeh Bacon can be found here. 

Tofu Scramble (gluten-free, low oil)

1 (14 ounce) package extra firm tofu, pressed if needed then crumbled
1/3 cup nutritional yeast

In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients, except oil, thoroughly and then set aside. Spray large skillet with olive oil spray and heat over medium flame. Layer tofu mixture along the bottom of the pan about ½ an inch thick (you may have to cook the tofu in two batches). Let sit for 5 minutes before flipping. Cook on the other side until golden brown. Stir in veggies and serve immediately.

  1. I was all excited to know a new vegan restaurant was coming to town… but….. Supreme Master TV scares me.  And so does Loving Hut.

    • Carolyn, the food is amazing at Loving Hut! Even if SM scares you I hope you will at least support a new vegan restaurant in your area. Loving Hut has made it possible for people across the globe to get healthy, tasty vegan food.

  2. Fabulous, Christy! I saw the cute segment and you looked so happy in the show, and of course the food looks amazing as ever.

    Some of my animal rights and veg friends have been interviewed and featured by SMTV, and I always hear their crews are lovely as well. For one gal, they told her she can use her show segment however she likes, no copyright issues – I've worked in media for years and that kind of generosity is unheard of! People are entitled to their opinions, but anyone who does good for animals and people's health and gives free publicity to activists definitely gains my respect. We are few and far in between.

    • @Kris, isn’t that just awesome?!? You bring up a very good point, the cooking segments are just great and SMTV tries to cover every vegan and animal rights related events they can. A 24/7 channel on veganism can’t be half bad!

      @Sillygoose, thank you so much for your kind comments and for watching the show. SMTV scares me sometimes too, but with all the amazing work they’ve done and the millions of people they’ve helped go vegan, I prefer to look at the good and brush off the weird.

    Hi Christy!

    I just watched the show on Supreme Master TV…LOVED it! Such a sweet program. you looked fantastic, and the food–let's just say i was drooling by the end of the show =p

    Thanks so much for sharing the secrets to your vegan yummies. I'm really looking forward to trying them (I'm especially craving that smoothie right now–i used to LOVE those popsicles back before i was vegan–but i still need to get vanilla extract and vegan milk) I really hope to see you again on a cooking show…your blog always "blisses" me out, but seeing the chef in action took it to a whole new level!  =]

    Btw, I couldn't help seeing Carolyn's comment, and i just want to say i personally was glad to see Christy on Supreme Master TV…that channel has given me a lot of info that has helped me a lot (especially when non-veg people attacked me for being vegan), so it's def one of my faves. A fave chef blogger + TV channel in 1…doesn't get much better than that! haha

    Thanks Christy and keep doing what you're doing, even if it always succeeds in making me super jealous and hungry (I've gotta get to Bangkok!)!
