Meatless Monday: Vegan Tofu Scramble

January 7, 2013

Vegan tofu scramble can be enjoyed for breakfast or dinner.  Cubes of firm tofu are sauteed with aromatics and spices.  You can add whatever vegetables you have in your fridge to this recipe.  Zucchini, red bell pepper, spinach and mushrooms work especially well.  Serve your tofu scramble with a slice of whole wheat toast to complete this healthy meal.

Vegan Tofu Scramble


1 block firm tofu (drained well)
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon chopped onion
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons vegan bacon bits (optional)
chopped green onion (optional)
Combine vegetable oil, Bragg’s (or tamari, or soy sauce), turmeric, onion and garlic in a skillet and heat on medium, while cutting the tofu into small pieces. Lower the temp of the burner a bit and add the tofu to the mixture in the skillet. As the tofu cooks, mash it up and make sure that the tofu and seasoning mixture are mixed well.
If you want to include vegan bacon bits, they can be added as a topping after or folded into the mix towards the end of cooking. Cooking them in the scrambled tofu for a few minutes will soften them, which I like better.
