Preparation

To Make the Chive Aioli:

  1. In a small bowl, add all the ingredients and mix to combine. Set aside.

To Sauté Mushrooms:

  1. In medium pan heat 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil or vegan butter. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook for 10-15 minutes on medium heat.
  2. Add a few tablespoons of water every couple of minutes and let it cook off. Mushrooms should start to soften and shrink in size.
  3. In the last minute of cooking, add the spices and fresh chives.

To Make the Dill Tofu Scramble:

  1. Start scrambling the tofu half way through cooking the mushrooms. Using a non-stick pan, crumble the tofu with your hands into the pan.
  2. Cook on medium-high heat for a few minutes until the tofu starts to brown.
  3. Turn down the heat to medium-low and add the unsweetened almond milk. Stir to combine and add the rest of the ingredients. Thoroughly combine and remove from heat.

To Serve the Croissant:

  1. Slice an opening length-wise into the croissant to create a pocket.
  2. Spoon the scrambled tofu inside the croissant. Add any other toppings you like and drizzle the aioli over top. Serve immediately.
