Tofu and soy cheese boost the protein in these mini vegetable-and-egg casseroles. Serve them for brunch or a weekend breakfast.
light firm silken-style tofu (fresh bean curd)
refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed, or 2 eggs
cheddar-flavored soy cheese, finely shredded (3/4 cup)
snipped fresh basil
ground black pepper
sliced fresh assorted mushrooms (such as cremini, stemmed shiitake, morel, and/or button)
fresh asparagus spears, trimmed and cut into 1-inch-long pieces
finely chopped shallots
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a blender or food processor, combine tofu and eggs. Cover and blend or process just until combined. Transfer to a large bowl; stir in soy cheese, 1 tablespoon of the basil, the pepper, and salt. Set aside.
- In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, asparagus, and shallots. Cook and stir for 5 to 8 minutes or just until tender; cool slightly. Stir vegetable mixture into tofu mixture, stirring until well mixed.
- Divide mixture among six 6-ounce ramekins or au gratin dishes. Place filled ramekins in a 15101-inch baking pan.
- Bake, uncovered, about 20 minutes or until set and edges are bubbly. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon basil. Serve warm.
