There are so many easy and delicious vegan breakfast choices like whole fruit, granola, toast, oatmeal, smoothies, etc., that preparing alternatives to eggs and other animal products is truly unnecessary. However, if you are making the transition to a vegan diet or simply craving something warm and savory in the morning, this scramble can really hit the spot.
Easy Tofu Scramble
5 oz. Organic Firm Tofu, drained and crumbled*
Handful of Your Favorite Veggies, diced**
1/2 Tbs Organic low-sodium Tamari (soy sauce)*
1 Tbs Nutritional Yeast
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
pinch of Turmeric
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
*Several very toxic pesticides are used to grow conventional soybeans, so be sure to use organic tofu and tamari.
**I used onions, tomato, portobellos, and green onions, but any combination of vegetables you have on hand will work.
Add a drizzle of oil, tofu and tamari to the pan and sautee over med-high heat for 5 minutes, allowing the tofu to fully absorb the tamari and begin to brown.
Add veggies and saute for 3-5 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium.
Sprinkle on nutritional yeast, garlic powder, onion powder, and turmeric and stir to evenly coat tofu and veggies.
Continue cooking for 5 minutes.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
This recipe makes one large serving, or you could share and there would be plenty for two.
