This Tofu Breakfast Scramble is simple, hearty, savory, healthy and comes together in less than 20 minutes. Vegan, plant-based, and oil-free!
I love breakfast foods…PERIOD! And, one of my favorite meals is this Tofu Breakfast Scramble. It’s hearty, full of flavor, and really satisfies the hunger.
People tend to avoid tofu like the plague because they think it’s bland and complicated. This recipe is anything but bland and complicated. Not to sound arrogant, but this recipe is pretty awesome and will forever change the way you look at tofu.
Eggs were never really my thing before going plant-based so letting them go wasn’t difficult. But, for some, eggs are like a morning ritual and the thought of giving them up for oatmeal is unbearable.
Or, if you are already plant-based and still trying to figure out what to do with that block of tofu you bought three months ago. Stop wondering! This is what you do with it.
You make this vegan tofu scramble recipe!
I think the best thing about this Tofu Breakfast Scramble is the fact it doesn’t taste anything like eggs…it’s better! Let’s face it, eggs are pretty bland until someone dumps all that salt and pepper on them.
This scramble is an incredibly healthy way to start the day. There are almost 20 grams of protein in just 8oz. of tofu. Not to mention it’s a great source of calcium as well.
