Vegan Eggs Florentine

While we thought about the recipes for an Easter brunch, we always came back to this one: Eggs Florentine. It's the vegetarian sister (or the uncle, or maybe the niece) of Eggs Benedict, which is one of THE American breakfast classics. There's absolutely no breakfast restaurant or café in Berlin that doesn't have it on the menu.

Instead of Egg Benedict's ham, there's spinach on this one and it also comes with English muffins, Sauce Hollandaise and a poached egg. We now twist it some more to make a vegan Eggs Florentine for you.

Depending on how much time you have, you can either bake English muffins at home or buy some at the store. Sorry, if you were already excited for vegan poached egg. We're not there, yet. Baked tofu is actually one of our favorite "egg-like"options because of it's texture. You can get it at Asian supermarkets, but you can also use any other type of tofu you like. And if you don't like tofu at all - the combination of warm English muffins, spinach and Sauce Hollandaise is totally enough to comfort you.
