Makes: 4 to 6 servings
4 to 6 slices whole grain bread
1 to 2 tablespoons vegan margarine
1 block (about 15 ounces) firm or extra firm
½ cup shredded vegan cheese
½ teaspoon turmeric
¼ teaspoon tamari, plus more to taste
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
Place a bread slice on a cutting board. Cut a
hole in the center of the bread, about 3 inches in diameter, using a bread
knife or cookie cutter. Continue with all slices of bread. (Save the bread
“middles” for making breadcrumbs).
Spread a bit of vegan margarine on each side of
the bread slices. Set three of the bread slices into a large, non-stick fry
pan. Turn the heat on medium-low and let the slices begin to brown on one side.
Meanwhile, put the tofu in a medium bowl and
mash with a potato masher or large fork until crumbly. Add the vegan cheese,
turmeric, tamari, sea salt, and pepper. Mash until the tofu resembles the color
and texture of cooked scrambled eggs.
Scoop up one quarter of the tofu mixture and
place in the center of each bread slice in the pan. Pat down firmly until the
filling is compact inside the “hole.” Cook for two to three minutes and then
flip. Cook on the other side for 5 to 7 minutes or until the underside is
golden and crispy and the tofu mixture is warmed through. Keep warm in a 300
degree F. oven. Repeat with the other bread slices.
Serve immediately with fresh fruit slices on the
