This recipe is for my personal favourite sandwich combo: scrambled tofu + tempeh bacon + avocado + lettuce + tomato. This breakfast sandwich is not only vegan (and totally customizable) but also easy to make and costs less than going through the drive-through! Talk about a breakfast you can feel good about.




  • 1 English muffin


  • 1/4 cup scrambled tofu
  • 2 strips tempeh bacon
  • sprinkle of Daiya cheese


  • 1-2 leaves butter lettuce
  • 2 slices of tomato
  • 2-3 slices of ripe avocado


  • roasted garlic hummus, to taste
  • guacamole, to taste
  • vegan mayo, to taste


  1. Make a batch of scrambled tofu (here's the recipe), set aside.
  2. Sauté the tempeh bacon according to the package instructions. I usually cook mine in a little bit of coconut oil and brown for a couple of minutes per side. Set aside.
  3. Lightly toast your English muffin.
  4. Spread one side of your English muffing with a light coat of vegan mayo. Spread the other side with some roasted garlic hummus.
  5. On one half add 1 scoop of scrambled tofu and 2 slices of tempeh bacon (I usually cut my slices in half and then use between 1 1/2 to 2 slices per sandwich). If you're using Daiya, add a sprinkle on top of the tempeh bacon.
  6. If the ingredients have cooled down a little, quickly pop it in the microwave for 15-30 seconds before adding the fresh veggies.
  7. Make sure your sandwich is nice and hot before opening it up and adding 1-2 slices of butter lettuce, 1-2 slices of tomato, sliced avocado, and a pinch each of salt and pepper.
  8. Enjoy!
