This Easy Tofu Scramble is a quick and delicious vegan breakfast to throw together! Vegan ‘eggs’ are made with a block of tofu and simple seasonings. Filled with plant based protein, this dish is a healthy way to start your day!

Have you ever tried a tofu scramble? If you’re not a big fan of tofu then maybe you just want to move on until the next recipe. BUT if you are a lover of tofu, like moi, you NEED to try this scramble out. It looks crazy similar to scrambled eggs, but I won’t pretend that it was the same taste at all. The texture of this scramble is similar to a more dry scrambled egg but the flavor isn’t close. Still VERY tasty, though!

Ingredients needed

In this tofu scramble recipe, tofu is crumbled and scrambled with a few simple seasonings to create vegan scrambled ‘eggs’ that are flavorful and nutritious! Here’s everything you’ll need to make this recipe:

  • Tofu. You’ll need a 12 ounce block of tofu to make 2 servings. We like using firm tofu and extra-firm works too. There is no need to press your tofu for this recipe; the water will cook out in the first couple of minutes.
  • Olive oil. For cooking the tofu in the pan.
  • Turmeric powder. “Why is it yellow!?” was my first question the first time that I ever encountered a tofu scramble. I’ve seen people add mustard and other yellow things to their scramble to get that color. I went the extra easy route and just added about a 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric powder to mine. It’s virtually tasteless, gives the tofu that fun egg-y color, AND it’s good for you!
  • Other seasonings. A blend of garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper for delicious flavor.

How to make this recipe

Here’s the simple process of making tofu scrambled ‘eggs’. For the full, printable recipe see the recipe card, below.

  • Dry the tofu. Start by drying your tofu off as best you can. You do not need to press it like we did with THIS tofu recipe, but I like to remove as much moisture from the outside as possible.
  • Break tofu into pieces. Break your tofu into large chunks. A lot of times I see recipes that call for you to break it into small pieces but what I have found is that the tofu breaks up a decent bit while you are cooking it, so you don’t want to already start with really small pieces. I break my chunks into about 1 1/2 inch pieces, which will then get broken down even more from the stirring in the pan.
  • Cook. The tofu chunks then get added into a hot skillet with a little olive oil. Turmeric, garlic powder, onion powder and salt & pepper are then mixed with the tofu crumbles. Sauté for about 8 minutes to warm through.
  • Serve. Once cooked, take off of the heat and ENJOY! Super simple and so good!
