Our Favorite Tofu Scramble

If you're looking for a hearty plant-based breakfast, this scrumptious tofu scramble will win you over! It has a fun secret ingredient!


– 2 Tbsp of cooking oil – 1/2 of a yellow onion, diced – 1 clove garlic minced – 12 oz of firm tofu – 1 C of polenta optional – 2 Tbsp of vegan margarine – 1 Tbsp of turmeric – 1 Tbsp of nutritional yeast (optional) – 1 tsp of oregano – Salt & pepper, to taste – Your favorite veggies

In a large frying pan, cook the onions and garlic in most of the cooking oil for a few minutes. Crumble the tofu using your fingers into the pan and stir up.

If you are using polenta (it really makes it wet, like scrambled eggs, but we only use this recipe when we have leftover polenta) add this in and stir the mixture.

Next, add the margarine, let it melt, and stir so that it is coating the tofu crumbles. Add in the turmeric and nutritional yeast (optional) and once again stir.

Add in most of your veggies. If you are using veggies that cook longer such as broccoli, carrots, or potatoes you want to let them cook for about 10 minutes before adding in veggies that cook fast including mushrooms, kale, spinach, and tomatoes. You should cook the whole mixture for about 15 minutes.

Turn off the heat and let it stand for a few minutes before serving.
