Recipe of The Week: "Eggs" Benedict al Funghi

Recently, people have been beginning to get sick of the same breakfast everyday. Believe me, especially if you're lacto-vegetarian or vegan, you are only limited to similar things everyday. Either toast, cereal, oatmeal etc. So, I've decided to come up with a tasty substitute to eggs benedict using tofu, with a creamy tofu hollandaise sauce to top it up. Also with a side of garlic mushrooms, it'll make a nutritious and delightful meal. Hope you enjoy!


Ingredients:

"Eggs"
3 thin slices hard tofu (beancurd)
3 English muffins

Dash of white pepper

Garlic mushrooms
1 tbsp butter
3 slices fresh Swiss mushrooms (even shitake will do), sliced

If using fresh mushrooms, DO NOT WASH. Just dry with paper napkin, because otherwise, mushroom juice will be extracted.
