A perfect Saturday morning for me starts with an early morning run, then a long walk with my pups, and then (hopefully Matt) cooking us a delicious tofu scramble.

One of the reasons I love a tofu scramble for breakfast is it can be so easy to make. You can have one ready in about 10 minutes. I remember doing a little cooking lesson with my cousin who was interested in adding a few meatless meals to her week. I showed her how to make my Buffalo Quinoa Balls and then we moved onto a tofu scramble. She couldn’t believe how quick the whole tofu scramble process was. When I was done she said, “that’s it?” and I replied, “yes, that’s how easy a vegan breakfast can be!” – needless to say, she was impressed.

Tofu scrambles can be very versatile. The recipe below includes some the basics I use often but you can use any veggies that you have on hand. All you need a is a block of firm tofu, veggies, and a few spices. And because they’re so easy to make, sometimes I’ll do a double batch and have extra for a tasty and healthy breakfast to bring to work.

Tofu is protein packed and contains a high dose of calcium and iron – just be sure to use a non-GMO and organic type. Depending on the veggies you use you’ll get different vitamins and phytochemicals.

Simple Tofu Scramble
Author: Mary Ellen
Ingredients
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 1 block of firm organic tofu in water , drained (and pressed for a few minutes if possible)
  • 1/2 onion , chopped
  • 1 package of mushrooms (10 oz), chopped
  • 1 red pepper , chopped

  • A bit of water or veggie broth (if needed)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp of turmeric

Instructions
  1. Heat 1 TB of oil in a large skillet. Add the onions, mushrooms, and pepper until cooked (about 5-8 mins).
  2. Crumple the tofu into pan, add spices, and a little water/veggie broth when necessary so nothing sticks to the bottom. Cook until heated through (about 3-5 mins).
  3. Once tofu is heated, add spinach and heat through.

  1. So many mushrooms! YES! This sounds super delicious. And much quicker & easier than the scramble I typically make. I normally have scramble for supper as the recipe I make is a little more involved and I can’t be bothered with that for breakfast. I’m excited to give this a try – maybe I can even get Terry to make it while I’m running too haha 😉

  2. Dude I am so jealous of your mornings LOL. But I love how you were able to pass on the tofu scramble to your cousin. We used to make tofu scrambles all the time, but I’ve taken a long break from tofu because it kinda messes with my system. The kids have been wanting me to make this again tho so I’ll have to add in the veggies you mentioned!

    1. Thanks Randi but that’s only when things come together perfectly. It’s usually a mess lol.

      I’m sorry tofu messes with you – that stinks. 🙁 If you do try it though or make it for the kids, let me know what you think!

  3. LOVE tofu scramble. I always put mushrooms in mine too. Love that you added turmeric. I’m obsessed with the stuff lately…and it gives such a beautiful golden color! Yum!

  4. I will try this “dressed up” tofu scramble. It looks beautiful.

    I have made a tofu scramble before and used it as I would do an Egg Salad sandwich, I did enjoy it.

I'd love to hear from you!
