To make Hollandaise Sauce place vegan butter in a small sauce pan and bring to boil. Add flour and whisk until it forms a paste. Slowly add milk, whisking continuously until well combined. Bring sauce to a boil, whisking frequently, until sauce begins to thicken (about 1-2 minutes). Remove from heat and add nutritional yeast, lemon juice, and seasoning. Stir together. Set aside.
To make tofu heat canola oil over medium heat. Slice tofu 1/2 inch thick and sprinkle each side with salt and pepper. Place tofu in pan with hot oil and pan fry on each side for about 4-5 minutes, until browned. Remove from heat.
To assemble the Benedict, slice English muffin in half and toast. Top each muffin with a small amount of lettuce and one tomato slice each. Place pan-fried tofu atop each tomato and smother with Hollandaise Sauce. Finish with sliced avocado and serve immediately.
