Tofuevos Rancheros
By Greg Lawson - [email protected]

A few weeks ago, a friend asked me to create a two week vegan meal plan. I included a few of my favorite recipes and created a few new ones, including this recipe for Tofuevos Rancheros.

Please visit my website and click on the two week meal plan link to see the rest of the meal plans and recipes. And remember, the most important step anyone can take to help animals is to go vegan.

Tofuevos Rancheros

* slices of tofu
* red bell pepper
* onion
* green enchilada sauce
* vegan cheese
* whole wheat tortilla

This is a single serving vegan remake of Huevos Rancheros, a popular Tex-Mex dish that uses fried eggs.

Cut three slices of firm or extra firm, low fat Mori-Nu tofu, about 1/2 inch thick, not lengthwise, from the smaller end. Place carefully on paper towel and gently blot moisture off with a paper towel.

Pour a 10 oz. can of green enchilada sauce into a skillet. Add several strips of red bell pepper and strips of onion. Bring to a gentle boil and simmer a few minutes to soften vegetables. Place the tofu into the sauce. Place two slices of Soymage brand vegan American cheese slices or thinly sliced cheddar VeganRella on top of tofu (This step really adds to the near-authentic southwest flavor of the dish, as if people in the southwest ate tofu. The texture of Mori-Nu tofu is similar to cooked egg whites, but the taste doesn't include cruelty). Cover and simmer a few minutes until soycheese has softened. Serve on top of a whole wheat tortilla and garnish with fresh parsley, black olives, salsa, a few chips and Tofutti Sour Supreme. I like to include a vegan sausage patty. Include refried beans for a breakfast that will last all day.

Hint: if you are over 21, and it is a non-work day, a tequila sunrise makes a better drink to accompany this dish than V-8 juice.

Hint 2: add slices of jalapeno pepper to the skillet to increase your desire to drink the tequila.
