To Make the Tofu

  1. If you’re cooking the tofu in your oven, preheat it to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut the tofu in half, then cut each half into four slices. Place the slices in a shallow dish.

  3. Mix the tamari and apple cider vinegar together and pour it over the tofu. Make sure the pieces are totally submerged. Allow the tofu to marinate for 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the nutritional yeast, turmeric, onion powder, garlic powder, sea salt, and black pepper.
  5. Dip a tofu slice into the nutritional mixture and make sure it’s fully coated. Place it on the baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the tofu.
  6. Oven instructions: Bake the tofu for 20 minutes, flipping the slabs over after 10 minutes.
  7. Air fryer instructions: Bake the tofu on 400° for 10 minutes, flipping after 5 minutes. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook the tofu in batches.

To Make the Hollandaise Sauce

  1. Mix all of the ingredients together in a food processor or high-speed blender until smooth and creamy. If it’s too thick, add a little more water, a tablespoon at a time.
  2. Heat the sauce in a small sauce pan to warm it up. If it gets too thick, add a little more water, a tablespoon at a time.

To Make the Benedicts

  1. Toast the English muffins.
  2. Place two English muffin halves on a plate.
  3. Place about half a cup of greens on each half, then follow with a tomato slice and two slices of tempeh bacon.
  4. Place a tofu slice on each muffin half, and then drizzle on the hollandaise sauce. Serve hot.
