Step One: Roasted Garlic Aioli

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Peel entire head of garlic and toss with extra virgin olive oil to coat. Seal well in foil and cook for 35 minutes.  Remove and let cool.  Add garlic, salt, pepper, vegan mayo and the juice and zest of lemon in a food processor.  Combine all in food processor then remove into bowl.  Fold in parsley then refrigerate.

Prep Crispy Sweet Potato ingredients as noted in ingredient list.  Combine all in a large bowl.  Mix thoroughly and form into 3-inc, flat patties.  Coat sauté pan with canola oil then heat on med/high heat.  Cook patties on each side approx. 2-3 minutes until golden brown then set aside.

Step Three: Shiitake & Tofu Scramble

Clean Shiitake mushrooms with damp cloth, then remove stems.  Then thinly slice mushrooms and red onion and set aside.  Cube tofu into 1-inch cubes then place in large bowl. Using hands or potato masher break apart tofu into small pieces (leave some larger pieces for texture.)

Coat a wok or large sauté pan with canola oil then heat on med/high heat.  Add mushrooms and red onion and sauté 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Then add to the wok tofu, cayenne and turmeric and continue to sauté for another 5-7 minutes.  Remove from heat set aside

Step Four: Bring it all together

Slice ciabatta rolls in half and lightly toast.  Then brush with garlic aioli on both sides.  Spoon on  a generous amount of Shiitake & tofu scramble.  Then layer sweet potato patties.  Drizzle maple syrup over the potatoes.  Slice and serve with a steaming cup of coffee or your favorite breakfast beverage. Enjoy!
