Imagine it’s Sunday morning (or maybe it actually is ?!). You can smell the coffee, the toast is done, and in front of you is a big plate of scrambled … tofu? That’s right! This healthy vegan breakfast recipe is so close to eggs I’ve even slipped it to friends and family ?. So step aside pancakes and waffles – a breakfast food rival is on the menu this weekend!
Have you tried tofu scramble? It’s an easy and healthy vegan alternative for a breakfast recipe. Firm tofu breaks down with a texture just like eggs (check out that picture!), and turmeric adds that familiar golden color. In addition, we like our scramble cheesy, so we use a sprinkle of nutritional yeast.
Tofu also makes a great breakfast food due to its protein content. In fact, tofu contains about 25% more protein that eggs! Furthermore, by selecting tofu you avoid that eggy cholesterol, making tofu scramble a more heart healthy recipe.
Personally, we don’t miss the taste of eggs when we eat tofu scramble. However, if you do – we have a solution! It’s called Kala Namak, or “Himalayan black salt“. This seasoning is commonly used to add an eggy flavor to vegan foods (not just breakfast)!
Add the Fixings!
It’s not breakfast without the fixings, right? We think the savory flavor of roasted tomatoes and umami-rich mushrooms complement tofu scramble really well. We also love a big healthy pile of wilted spinach in our breakfast recipes! A few mouthfuls of spinach add plenty of fiber and a bunch of vitamins to fuel your day.
On the light side, some other options are sauteed kale or collard greens. Or, If you’re looking for something more substantial, add some toast, beans or potatoes (hash browns or home fries, anyone?). And don’t forget, breakfast is also a great time to chow down on some fruit!
Alright, they say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so it’s time to get started!
