Ejotes con Huevo
$5.31 recipe | $1.33 serving
In this vegan version of ejotes con huevo, protein-packed tofu is mixed with fresh green beans and spicy red salsa to form a hearty and healthy breakfast for the whole week!
In the meantime, cut the ends off the green beans and chop into ½-inch pieces. Bring a pot of salted water to boil and add in the beans, 1 clove garlic, and a small piece of onion.
Cook until just tender, about 2-4 minutes. Drain, rinse under cold water, discard the onion and garlic, and set the beans aside.
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium, then fry the pasilla chile on each side for about 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
Add in diced onions and sauté for 2-3 minutes until translucent. Next, add in the garlic, serrano chiles, tomatoes, and pasilla chile once more. Cook for 5-6 more minutes, or until soft.
Transfer the pasilla chile and a few scoops of the vegetables to a blender and pulse until smooth. Note: you may need to add a few tablespoons of water or vegetable broth to move your blender.
In a mixing bowl, crumble the tofu and add nutritional yeast, turmeric, and black salt. Stir until evenly coated, then add the tofu to the skillet with the green beans and stir.
Strain in about ½ of the pasilla chile salsa and combine with the tofu mixture. Taste and add more salsa or sea salt to your preferences.
Serve this dish by itself or with freshly made corn tortillas, refried beans, cilantro, avocado slices, vegan queso fresco, etc. Happy eating!
