Vegan Tofu Scramble

Hi my little loverbuns!

Thank you thank you thank you for your incredible comments on my post earlier this week. It’s hard to put these kinds of things out there onto the world wide web, but writing it all out helps me so much, and your support works miracles for my soul! I am so moved by all of your beautiful, kind, and motivating words. I feel so close to so many of you just from your comments! I love my little RFFMBT community so much, I cannot even describe how much you all inspire me everyday! I feel so honored that you feel comfortable enough to share your personal stories with little old me! I am amazed by all of you. Seriously. I’m pretty much speechless and want to type the same thing over and over because I’m so overwhelmed by your support and kindness! Thank you!

I’m really excited to share this awesome vegan staple with you. This is a dish that I make quite often, so often that I actually didn’t realize that I never posted it on here!

Tofu scrambles are a great way to start your morning. This eggless replacement for your traditional scrambled eggs is loaded with protein and is also cholesterol-free!

For all of you “texture eaters” out there, let me give you the 411 before you get totally weirded out. There are a few different firmnesses of tofu. I love firm to extra firm tofu. It’s a bit tougher and chewier, but if that totally gives you the heebie-geebies just reading about it, never fear: there is also silken tofu! Silken tofu is a lot softer, and when “scrambled” resembles more of a light fluffy texture (similar to actual scrambled eggs). After you select the correct tofu for your texture preference, you are good to go! This is a really simple recipe, and the combinations of veggies are endless.

To make this scramble a complete Rabbit Food approved meal, I made it into a breakfast burrito with 1 whole grain tortilla (you could also swap the whole grain tortilla for 2 corn soft taco sized tortillas instead.). Finally, a breakfast burrito that won’t weigh you down and leave you overly stuffed!

I like adding turmeric to my scrambles because it gives flavor and a yellow color that resembles eggs!

Vegan Tofu Scramble
Serves 1

1/4 package of tofu
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup yellow bell pepper, chopped
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 Tbsp nutritional yeast

Remove tofu from packaging and strain water. Remove as much excess water fem tofu as possible by pressing it firmly between paper towel. Cut the tofu evenly into 4 cubes and store 3 remaining cubes in a container in the fridge. Place the tofu cube into a bowl and crumble with a fork. In a pan over medium heat, combine olive oil and tofu. Add the onions, bell pepper, garlic powder, turmeric, and nutritional yeast, and stir until onions become translucent. Transfer the tofu scramble to a tortilla, drizzle with hot sauce, and enjoy hot!

    I have yet to completely embrace tofu. I like it well enough when I order it out and about, but I have never gotten up the courage to cook with it. However, I think this may be the perfect dish to face my fears! I always want to eat breakfast burritos, but my tummy is not a fan of eggs. I think I will have to pick up some tofu next time I go to the store! I mean really, how can you go wrong when you drench it in siracha!?

    Not gonna lie, I am totally sketched out by tofu scrambles. My boyfriend keeps trying to convince me to try one and after reading this I think I’ll try it! The burrito idea sounds like a good springboard for me to try it

    I love how this is so much simpler than many of the other tofu scrambles out there!

    Hi Catherine! This recipe looks delish & sriracha is the perfect touch. I was wondering if you will be making another wallpaper for desktops and phones? They are so adorable and fun. Thanks!
