Vegan Fried Matzo/Matzo Brei

This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeVegan

Ingredients

  • 1 package of silken tofu (or any tofu)
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp. dried garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. black salt (or Kosher salt)
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour (or any flour)
  • 1 Tbs. arrowroot powder (or corn starch or potato starch)
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 – 1 cup water
  • 8 sheets of matzo
  • 2 stalks of scallions, finely chopped (optional)
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

  1. In a large bowl or food processor, add the silken tofu, turmeric, garlic powder, black salt and olive oil. Mix well.
  2. Add the flour, arrowroot powder and non-dairy milk.
  3. Add water slowly while mixing/processing until you have a very loose batter.
  4. If you are using any other ingredients like scallions, add them into the batter.
  5. Break the matzo into pieces (I broke each sheet into 4 pieces) and soak in a bowl of warm water for about 30 seconds, just to soften it. Set the pieces aside.
  6. Heat a large skillet and spray with the cooking oil (or if you’re not worried about calories, just use oil).
  7. Take the pieces of matzo and dunk them into the tofu batter.
  8. Shake off the excess (it cooks better when the matzo has a thin coating of batter) and put them in the hot pan to fry.
  9. When you see the batter brown, flip the pieces and fry the other side. It should take about 4 minutes on each side, depending on crispy you want the matzo.
  10. Cook in batches until you have fried all the matzo.
  11. Top with the garnish or sauce of your choice.

 

AUTHOR & RECIPE DETAILS

When Rhea became vegan, there were no places in her Bronx neighborhood to eat so she had to learn to cook, mostly by watching TV cooking shows, especially Christina Pirello and Rachael Ray.  That led to the creation of The "V" Word web site which focuses on vegan versions of favorite, familiar foods. Because if you can have the foods you love, the foods you crave, the foods you grew up with, all in a compassionate, cruelty-free way, why wouldn't you?  Rhea has written several e-cookbooks which are available on her web site. She shares her life with a rescued Westie mix named Benoni and a rescued husband named Tom who both went on the vegan journey with her. It is Rhea's hope that she can spread the "V" Word to bring more compassion into the world and it is her dream to become the vegan Rachael Ray.

No soy, thanks. Soy is GMO, plus a very bad choice for those who have hypothyroid function

Oh how I've missed this from my pre-vegan days and growing up in a Jewish family in New York City.
