makes 4 biscuits or 2 big bennies

BISCUITS

i used this biscuit recipe without the chives and cheese BUT HEY you could leave em in too. i cut them out big, about 4 inch circles, so cooking time is about 5 minutes longer. you’ll have extra biscuits.

BENNY

1 avocado, sliced

2 leaves of lacinto kale, veined and chopped

half a square of medium firm tofu, cut into 4 slabs

1 block of tempeh, sliced in half so you have two big thin squares, then cut that into 2

4 slices of broccoli, cut so the stalk is still attached and you have nice intact slices.

3 cloves garlic, minced

olive oil

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

a few shakes garlic powder

fresh cracked black pepper

for the tempeh, i used this marinade for about 10 minutes then fried it up in a skillet until brown on both sides. remove and put aside. roast the broccoli with a bit of oil at 400 on a baking sheet for 10-15 minutes, flip once. in the same a skillet real hot with olive oil then add the tofu unti browned. flip, add kale to the pan with garlic. dust tofu with nutritional yeast, garlic powder and black pepper. once the other side is browned, you’re done! the kale just needs to wilt a bit and slightly saute the garlic.

Cut a biscuit in half, add 1/4 avocado per side, a slice of tempeh, a slice of broccoli, a quarter of the kale and a slab of tofu. do this to the other three then top with hollandaise. eat!

HOLLANDAISE SAUCE

3 tbsp earth balance

1/4 c. flour

1 1/2 c. unsweetened almond milk

1 tbsp dijon

1 tbsp white wine vinegar

1/4 c. nutritional yeast

black pepper

1 cloves garlic, minced

salt to taste

melt earth balance in a pot, add flour and whisk. once thickened, slowly add almond milk, whisking as it thickens. add everything else, taste and adjust to your taste. if it’s too thick add a bit of almond milk to thin. all done!
