One of the BEST Pantry Staple Brunch Recipes

Believe it or not, this vegan eggs benedict recipe is a fantastic pantry-staple meal (with the exception of the tomato and green onion)!  It uses almost all ingredients you would have in your dry pantry or cupboards – most of which you probably have on hand. Keeping a well-stocked pantry makes it easy to come up with delicious and healthy meals using a few staples you can rotate.  I made a list of my Top 125 Plant-Based Pantry Staples that always keep stocked. And you can check out all my favorite pantry staple ingredients in my Amazon shop here.  By stocking up on healthy whole ingredients you can cook delicious recipes without a trip to the store!

How Do I Make This Vegan Cornbread Waffle Eggs Benedict Recipe?

  1. Preheat oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Add sliced tofu in a bowl and toss with chili powder, corn starch, and olive oil. Place coated tofu on a baking sheet, and bake for 30 minutes. This should give you just enough time to make the waffles.
  2. Mix all waffle batter ingredients together in a large batter bowl.
  3. When your Belgian Waffle maker is ready, scoop the approved amount of batter into the maker, and close the lid carefully. Your waffle maker instructions should say exactly how much batter to use.
  4. To assemble the benedict, start by adding a waffle to a plate. Top with a thick slice of tomato, a slice of roasted tofu, and top with about 1 tablespoon of hollandaise sauce.
  5. Top benedicts with green onions and a sprinkle of smoked paprika before serving.

What Is The Best Belgian Waffle Maker to Buy?

We absolutely love this Belgian waffle maker which made perfectly crisp and fluffy waffles every time.  It also has over 10k amazing reviews on Amazon, which is why we gave it a shot…. and wow am I glad we did!  We had a normal waffle maker for years, but recently upgraded to this version which makes deeper, thicker Belgian waffles. I wish we had gotten it sooner. This waffle maker is simple to use, easy to clean, and makes perfect Belgian waffles in minutes.  Great for sweet or savory waffles that everyone will love!

Notes

Vegan Hollandaise Sauce - I have 2 amazing plant-based hollandaise sauce recipes on the blog. My tofu hollandaise sauce is a 5-minute blender sauce that is ready in a pinch... and my chickpea hollandaise sauce takes a bit longer at 10 minutes, but has a fantastic flavor. Take your pick!
