Scrambled tofu is a great vegan alternative to scrambled eggs. Just like egg, it’s full of protein so paired with some wholegrain toast it’s a filling and delicious breakfast that fuels your body with all the energy it needs to start the day!
Scrambled tofu for breakfast
I discovered this dish when I didn’t know how to use the rest of my tofu but didn’t feel like another stir fry. Now I love it! It’s a really great way to add versatility to your weekday breakfasts without needing to spend too long in the kitchen.
Scrambled Tofu Recipe
- 400g organic firm tofu
- 2 tbs Vitasoy Almond Milk Unsweetened
- 2 shallots, green end only, sliced
- 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil garlic infused
- ½ tsp sea salt
- ¼ tsp pepper
- 2 tsp ground turmeric
- 1 punnet of baby roma tomatoes, halved lengthways
- 50g baby spinach
- 50g rocket
- 4 slices wholegrain toast (you can use gluten free wholegrain toast if you prefer)
- Slice the tofu into chunky cubes and place onto a clean tea towel to soak up any moisture.
- Place the tofu into a large bowl and add the Vitasoy Almond Milk Unsweetened. Mash with a potato masher until crumbly. Set aside.
- Add the infused olive oil to a large non-stick pan on a medium heat. Once the pan and oil has started to heat, add the tofu, turmeric, salt, pepper and shallots. Cook for 2-3 minutes stirring continuously until the tofu is a rich yellow and very hot.
- Whilst waiting for that to cook, in a separate small frying pan add a dash of olive oil and cook the tomatoes on a medium heat until cooked, turning after about a minute.
- Then add the spinach and rocket to the small pan to slightly wilt (this will take 30-60 seconds on a low-medium heat).
- Once tofu is cooked, serve immediately on toast with a side of tomatoes and the wilted spinach and rocket.
