20-minute Monday - (Vegan) eggs in purgatory, deconstructed
Delicious, single-serving comfort-type food that really did come together in 20 minutes, from scratch. This is the vegan poached egg, but instead of trying to make it into any kind of egg shape, I tore the microwaved tofu into pieces and poached it for just a few minutes in a very fresh tomato sauce (just raw canned tomatoes whizzed together with an immersion blender with some garlic, salt, and pepper--add olive oil if you're not serving it with a rich additional sauce like my egg yolk-- heated for a few minutes in a little pot). The yolk part I made separately and drizzled onto the finished dish. Served on jasmine rice with a side of fried mushrooms and garlic, the whole thing sprinkled with black salt.
