Creamed Tofu over Toast

Creamed tofu over toast, is a delicious breakfast entrée which pares nicely with fresh fruit or vegetables. The idea for this dish was inspired by creamed eggs and biscuits. It is fast and easy to make. You can blend up the sauce while the tofu is sautéing.

It can be served over biscuits, see Amazingly Tender Biscuits or Whole-Grain Low-Fat Biscuits; however, we think it is even more flavorful with whole-wheat toast (GF toast for Gluten-free or eat over rice).


Don’t stop at breakfast as it also makes an easy light lunch or supper with added vegetables and a salad on the side, and can also be served over a grain.
