Tofu Scramble

Tofu scramble is great alternative to traditional scrambled eggs. Since the main ingredient is tofu, it’s a much healthier option: cholesterol-free, lower in fat, and high in protein. Best of all, it’s very easy to make! With basic pantry ingredients and 10 minutes, you too can enjoy this delicious breakfast-favorite.

Ingredients You Need

You only need 8 simple pantry ingredients:

  • tofu
  • vegan butter
  • nutritional yeast
  • nondairy milk
  • salt
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • ground turmeric

A detailed recipe with measurements is in the recipe card below.

Ingredient Notes

Use firm or extra firm Tofu. No need to press it, just drain in well.

Any Nondairy Milk will work, but I prefer soy or oat milk.

If you don’t have Vegan Butter, you can use olive oil or coconut oil instead.

I use regular Salt for this recipe. However, if you want to add an extra eggy flavor, try Black Salt (or Kala Namak). It adds a real egg-like taste!

How to make Tofu Scramble

The recipe is very simple. The 3 main steps are:

  1. Crumble tofu – use a fork or your hands to break tofu into bite-size pieces.
  2. Cook – in a frying-pan, heat tofu on medium heat and cook for serval minutes.
  3. Add ingredients – add the rest of the ingredients, and cook until well combined.

How to serve Tofu Scramble

Tofu scramble is very versatile. It tastes great on its own, but you can also add in your favorite veggies and vegan meats. Some vegetables that make great add-ins are:

  • diced onions or red peppers
  • chopped kale or spinach
  • tomatoes or avocados as toppings

Another yummy option is to use it as a filling, for tacos, burritos or sandwiches. One of my favorites is serving it with some vegan ham and arugula on a vegan English muffin. The ultimate breakfast sandwich!
