You really can’t go wrong with a good tofu scramble in my book. For this breakfast version of tofu scrambled eggs I took inspiration from a food of my past, scrambled eggs. But this is the healthy, cruelty free version! No cholesterol bombs here.
You can makes these tofu scrambled eggs with any assortment of veggies and it will come out great! I used mushrooms, bell pepper, onions, and spinach. You can also leave out the veggies if you want to create a simple “scrambled egg” as a breakfast side. But as usual, I couldn’t resist adding the green.
Turmeric adds the yellow color to the tofu scrambled eggs and additionally provides anti-inflammatory benefits combined with a bit of black pepper. Go ahead and play with the ratio of spices to find the perfect balance of flavor and kick.
These tofu scrambled eggs are delicious served with salsa and hot sauce for those of us who like heat. They are also extremely tasty in a breakfast burrito. Or, how about breakfast for dinner? Just saying… Anyway, enjoy!
