Easy Tofu Scramble- this vegetarian and vegan breakfast recipe is quick and easy to make and a fun egg replacement that everyone will enjoy!

Oh hey, Monday! Nice seeing your face again. We’re on to another tofu recipe this week (can you tell that I’m on a huge tofu kick right now!?). This time it’s an EASY Tofu Scramble!

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 scramble 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.

“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 (at least that is what all of the food trend-setters are telling me these days)!

I have lots of fun recipes planned with the tofu scramble in the coming months. Think- vegan breakfast burritoes, veggie hashes, etc. GET EXCITED!

How to Make This Easy Tofu Scramble:

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.

Then 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 a decent chunk more from the stirring in the pan.

I have a full video below on how to make this easy tofu scramble. FYI :)

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 in. The tofu is sauteed for about 8 minutes to warm through. The chunks of tofu will naturally break up a bit more while you’re stirring it which is fine.

Once done, take off of the heat and ENJOY! Super simple and so good!

Easy Tofu Scramble


  • Author: Food with Feeling
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x
Scale

Ingredients

  • 12oz block tofu (if yours is a bit more or less, that’s totally fine!)
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon of turmeric powder
  • ½ teaspoon of garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Remove the block of tofu from the container and discard the liquid. You don’t need to press the tofu for a long time but pat it dry really god with a towel or paper towels to dry off the outside.
  2. Break the tofu into large chunks that are about 1 1/2 inches big (very roughly). The tofu will break up more in the pan so I like to start with larger chunks.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add in the tofu chunks and remaining ingredients. Stir to combine and continue to cook for about 8 minutes. You want the tofu to be completely warmed through and broken up a bit more.
  4. Remove from heat and ENJOY! I like to eat mine with toast and avocado as well as a little hot sauce.
