Vegan Tofu Breakfast Scramble

“Cheesy” Tofu Breakfast Scramble

Omelet lovers – this is your gateway to the plant-based side of eggs. I may have mentioned before that I don’t like to eat a ton of tofu (my stomach doesn’t always agree with it), but it is a treat every once in a while. But… one of my all-time favorite ways to enjoy it is for breakfast. Scrambled tofu has a very similar texture to eggs, and when prepared right, honestly is the best replacement that I have had. It even looks like eggs, right?

I did try the VeganEgg by Follow Your Heart and it kind of grossed me out… because it actually smelled like eggs and I think I was just not used to that? I kept thinking it was a real egg (which hey, mission accomplished on their part!) and it was not sitting right with me. I much prefer tofu scrambles. But if you are transitioning and having a hard time with eggs, you can try the VeganEgg or this.

I say… try this. It has cashew cheese in it, soooo…

Recipe

Serves: 4-5 people

You will need:

  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 5 button mushrooms, sliced
  • 5-6 asparagus stalks, chopped
  • 1 block tofu, crumbled
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • Dash of garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Cashew cheese, recipe HERE

To make:

  • In a large sauté pan over medium heat, add olive oil, onion, zucchini, mushrooms, and asparagus. Cook for about 5-10 minutes, until soft.
  • At crumbled tofu, turmeric, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Turn heat to high and “scramble” with a wooden spoon. Stir frequently to that everything is well blended and tofu is cooked – another 10 minutes.
  • In between the stirring, make your cashew cheese (recipe link above). I would half the recipe, because you will not need a lot. Or make the full recipe and store the rest for later in the week!
  • Add about 1/2 cup cashew cheese and mix well.
  • Serve :)

For me, this is a brunch staple… especially if you are having some friends over on an easy Sunday morning.

I just love breakfast and brunch so much – it’s my favorite meal of the day. Joe and I will usually go for brunch on the weekend and it’s always something that I look forward to. There’s something so comforting about a cozy brunch date – coffee, good food, great conversation, amazing company… it has everything.

Well, I am off to get ready for work. As always – have a gorgeous day, and make some breakfast for dinner tonight ;) xx bianca
