Description

Tofu scramble, scrambled tofu, tofu scrambled eggs –– whatever you call it, it's time you learn how to make it. Tofu scrambled eggs make for a fantastic savory, high protein vegan breakfast, and it couldn't be an easier recipe to master!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 14 oz firm (or extra firm) tofu
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter or olive oil
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • ¾ tsp kosher salt 
  • Pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Remove tofu from packaging, draining excess liquid. Lightly pat dry with a clean dish towel or paper towel. You don't need to remove all of the moisture - just enough so the scrambled tofu isn't too watery. 
  2. Using your hands, crumble the tofu into a mixing bowl. Add in nutritional yeast, turmeric, salt and pepper and stir well to coat. 
  3. Heat a skillet over medium-low and add vegan butter or oil. Once hot, add tofu to pan and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often to prevent burning. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
