Scrambled Tofu is one of my favorite things to make. Like scrambled eggs, they can be great to eat any time of the day. If you have been plant based for a while or are new to the lifestyle and you have not given them yet a try, you need to!
Once upon a time when I would go out for breakfast, my go to order was always a Belgium waffle with strawberries. I know what you’re thinking,.. what does that have to do with a blog post about scrambled tofu? Well back when I ate the standard American diet, I ate scrambled eggs very rarely. Lets all be honest here… they don’t taste like anything and they smell bad. Which is probably why everyone drowns them in ketchup and hot sauce. When I did eat eggs it was in the form of waffles or slapped between a couple pieces of bread with mayonnaise. (Which I grew up thinking was an egg sandwich.) When I got older I realized an “Egg Sandwich” was something totally different and eventually veganized that too, which you can find HERE.
The great thing about tofu scramble is just like scrambled eggs, you can add anything to them such as fresh veggies, toppings or meat replacements. Or alternatively you can add tofu scramble to anything like toast, tortillas, or skillets to make a more protein rich meal anytime of the day.
Whether you do, did or don’t enjoy traditional scrambled eggs, you’re going to love these.
This Simple Scrambled Tofu is:
- Easy to make
- 12 oz extra firm tofu⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- 3 tbsp vegetable broth⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- 1 tsp onion powder ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp Kala Namuk⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1 tbsp vegan butter
First you will need to drain and press all the water out of your tofu. This can be done by cutting your block of tofu in half and wrapping it in a towel. Then place your tofu under something heavy such as a pot push the excess water out. The longer you do this for the more flavor will absorb. I recommend a minimum of 15 minutes. Replacing the towel half way through.
Crumble tofu and toss in a bowl with nutritional yeast, garlic, onion and turmeric powder ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Heat vegan butter in skillet ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Add tofu and add 1 tbsp of vegetable broth until absorbed by the tofu⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Repeat this step two more times with vegetable broth until fully absorbed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Remove from heat, add salt/pepper to taste and serve⠀⠀
