In medium saute pan, melt vegan margarine.
Mix together egg replacer and water in a separate bowl and add to the pan. This will become thick as you whisk, add soy milk and remaining ingredients. Continue to whisk on high heat until fairly thick consistency. Set aside.
In a small mixing bowl, mix flour, cornmeal, salt and pepper, to taste. With a medium size ice cream scoop, scoop out 2 tofu balls that resemble eggs. Coat the tofu with flour and cornmeal mix. Fry the tofu in deep fat fryer or in a pot with 2 cups of oil for 2 minutes. After frying, drain the tofu with paper towels and season with salt and pepper, if desired.
Sautee the garlic and spinach in oil in a pan. Toast the Italian bread. Then merely assemble.
Stack on a plate; Italian toast, spinach, tofu "eggs", drizzle the vegan hollandaise!
Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Cava
Eggs Benedict can be paired with Chardonnay and Cava. Sparkling wine--with our without orange juice--is an obvious choice for eggs. With buttery hollandaise sauce, though, you might opt for a fuller white wine like chardonnay. You could try Maison Noir Knock on Wood Chardonnay. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.6 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 18 dollars per bottle.
Maison Noir Knock on Wood Chardonnay2013 Knock On Wood is made from 100% Chardonnay, all stainless-steel and no malolactic fermentation. Procured from hillside vineyards in Yamhill-Carlton AVA, reminiscent of the grand crus of Burgundy's Cote d'Or. It benefited from a very long and cold fermentation - almost two months - resulting in a lean and mean wine with perfume of honeydew melon and pear surfing huge waves of minerals, bringing a nice tide of racy starfruit to the finish.
