Tofu Strata

Egg and Cheese Strata (1)

This hearty dish works equally well for breakfast or dinner, especially because it needs at least 8 hours in the fridge to chill before you pop it in the oven.

Ingredients:

  • 6 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1/4 cup Earth Balance butter, softened
  • 1 cup shredded vegan cheddar
  • 1 (14-ounce) package silken tofu
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 cup butternut squash puree
  • 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  1. Spread the butter evenly over the bread slices, then cut the bread into 1-inch cubes. Combine the bread in a bowl with the cheddar and transfer to a 2-quart casserole dish.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the tofu, milk, butternut squash, and Dijon in a blender; process until smooth. Pour the tofu mixture over the bread mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours.
  3. Uncover and bake at 375 degrees F for 30 minutes, until lightly browned on top

The hidden squash puree is nice, but we might try this next time with mushrooms, tomatoes, and spinach mixed in for a veggie boost!
