A Basic, Tasty Tofu Scramble
This vegan tofu scramble is incredibly easy and delicious.
The texture and flavor really resemble eggs and the tofu provides a hefty dose of plant-based protein to fuel your morning.
- 3 oz. Extra Firm Tofu, diced
- ½ C. Mushrooms, diced
- ¼ C. Eggplant diced
- ¼ C. Yellow Bell Pepper, diced
- ¼ C. Onion, diced
- ½ T. Nutritional Yeast
- 1 tsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- ½ tsp. Cumin
- ¼ tsp. Turmeric
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Salsa & Avocado (optional)
I acknowledge that I said this recipe is “basic,” and nutritional yeast isn’t exactly something the average cook has in their cupboard, so feel free to leave it out. Or, head over to Whole Foods where you can get some for super cheap in the bulk bins. You won’t regret it.
Not only is it fun to sprinkle on a variety of dishes for a complex, nutty taste, it’s also a complete protein, packing 9 grams per serving and 4 grams of fiber.
Fyi: this recipe only uses 1/4 of a serving.
