There’s no need to miss out on chive-flavored spreads on a vegan diet. No, we’re not talking about store-bought non-dairy substitutes, but rather a whole-foods plant-based version you can make at home!
This vegan breakfast recipe is high in protein and lower in fat than other creamy non-dairy spreads. And, bonus: it only takes a couple minutes to make! If you’re feeling a bit groggy in the morning, this recipe is a stress-free way to get in some much needed energy for the day!
We like to start off by chopping up our chives and onions, and mashing up some silken tofu in a bowl. You can use a fork, your hands, a knife… anything goes! Once you have a nice mash, you can go ahead and add the rest of the ingredients (vegenaise, chives, red onion, salt, pepper, and lime juice) and mix it all together. Add some sliced tomatoes over top and you’re done! Yes, it’s that easy.
Once your spread is ready, it’s time to assemble the bagel. Pop a halved whole grain bagel in the toaster, and then spread your tofu-chive mixture over top. Get ready to taste your new brekky obsession!
