Breakfast in 10 minutes tops? I’m here for it. This Easy Tofu Scramble is my weekend go to breakfast. It’s savory, satisfying and the easiest vegan replacement for scrambled eggs. 

Growing up I was somewhat of scrambled egg fan but usually I went more for the carby breakfast choices. I did however love to make them. Every Sunday morning I would help my dad make a huge breakfast spread. It was one of the highlights of my week.

At first I was only in charge of toast. As I got older my dad let me help out a bit more. I started taking over things like pancakes and scrambled eggs. 

These Sunday morning cooking sessions were honestly where my love of the kitchen started!

Now I may no longer eat egg but that doesn’t mean I can’t keep the weekend breakfast tradition alive! I usually go for my tofu scramble with toast and avocado or burrito style these days. 

I can tell you I wouldn’t mind it along side a big spread of carby breakfast items!

Ingredient Notes:

  • Tofu – I like to use firm or extra firm tofu for this recipe. No need to press your tofu the water will cook out while on the stovetop. 
  • Olive Oil – You do need a bit of oil to prevent sticking to the pan. I generally use olive oil but any neutral tasting oil will work. 
  • Turmeric – This is key to the yellow egg like color. 
  • Onion Powder & Garlic Powder – These add flavor don’t skip them! 
  • Nutritional Yeast – You can find this at most stores now it adds a slightly cheesy and nutty flavor. It is tasty and a staple in most vegans pantries! 
  • Salt & Pepper – I like freshly cracked pepper and Sea Salt but use what you have on hand.
