Savory Breakfast Casserole Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes
👩🍳Cook Time: 20 minutes
One 14-ounce block extra firm tofu
½ medium yellow onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
4 green onions, chopped (green and white parts)
One 16-ounce bag frozen hash browns
3 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk (nut-free if necessary)
2½ cups chickpea flour
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1½ teaspoons black salt (kala namak; or regular salt)
1½ teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon mustard powder
¾ teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon olive oil
Black pepper to taste
1Preheat the oven to 400°F . Lightly spray a 9 × 13-inch baking dish with olive oil.
2Gently squeeze the tofu over the sink, releasing any extra water. Add the tofu, milk, chickpea flour, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, salt, garlic powder, mustard powder, turmeric, and pepper to a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into your largest bowl.
3Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper and sauté until just barely tender. Pour them into the bowl and return the pan to the stove.
4Add the hash browns to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thawed and golden in color.
5Remove from the heat and pour into the bowl.
6Add the bacon crumbles to the bowl and stir until combined. Pour into the prepared baking dish and sprinkle the green onions over the top.
7Bake for 35 minutes, or until firm and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
8Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Leftovers will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 4 to 5 days.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
