When you master tofu scramble it can be a game changer, I used to fuck this simple and delicious dish up till I learned three crucial things: ⠀
1) use firm or extra firm tofu only ⠀
2) prior to cooking with the tofu, wrap it in a paper tower and drain it, really try to get the juices out so it’s dry as possible ⠀
3) spices, spices, spices give tofu scramble life... pro tip: use curry and tumeric to make the tofu look like actual eggs if your into the traditional look and feel of things. ⠀ ⠀
Pictured above is fried onion, kale, tofu and red bell pepper (season veggies w/ garlic salt and season tofu with curry, tumeric, salt and pepper) + chickpeas roasted and seasoned with cumin, salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper + Trader Joe’s salsa authentica 👌 ⠀
Sometimes on fiesta Friday you just need a big ole LOADED TOFU SCRAMBLE BOWL to wrap up the week: 🍲 If you don’t fill the bowl to the brim you’re not living your best life, buds. 😉 I’ve been having cravings for the ‘fu all week so whipping up one of those bowls had to happen today! This recipe is on the blog under breakfast butttttt everyone knows I eat it for lunch and dinner too! Heading to a baseball game tonight with the Hubs and BFF and I’m ready to get out of the house and my head and into the WEEKEND. 🤓😘😁
Nothing better than an end of the week veggie filled tofu scramble 🍞🥑
Love using up the rest of my meal prepped veggies to create a large random scrambler/stir fry.
➡️Vegan (high protein) Recipe:
1️⃣Add all of your pre cooked veggies to a pan on medium to reheat (I used broccoli and cauliflower). 2️⃣Crumble 1-2 servings of tofu in your pan (I did not press my tofu beforehand, just drained the liquid); Stir/cook for 3-5 min with top off of the pan so everything can sauté
3️⃣Add 1T nutritional yeast (for cheesiness), 1/4tsp of turmeric (for egg like color), 1/2tsp paprika and 1/4tsp of salt; stir/cook together for 5 minutes
4️⃣Add 1T of plant milk (I used cashew) and stir/cook for 2 minutes (this makes it a bit softer like an eggy texture)
5️⃣ Added in diced tomatoes at the end and spinach to sauté
🔥Served with @traderjoes sprouted rye toast and avocado mashed on top
all the cravings on one plate 🤩🤤
for the past week or so, all I’ve been wanting is a big plate of tofu scramble but I haven’t had any tofu to make it with 😩 but I finally got some and whipped up this massive plate of oven baked oil free fries, tofu scramble, and ketchup 🤩🙌🏻 here’s the scramble dEATS:
• 1/4 of a large onion chopped
• half a small bell pepper chopped
• lots of purple curly kale
• 1/3 of a normal sized block of tofu
• lots of garlic power (could add fresh garlic too)
• lots of turmeric • some pepper
• a little black salt (I got mine at an indian market for super cheap!!)
1. start by “frying” your onion in a pan with some water (or oil if you choose to cook with oil)
2. once translucent add in the bell peppers and a few minutes later add in the kale so it has time to wilt down, add the lid on
3. once the kale has wilted a bit crumble in the tofu and mix everything up
4. add in all the spices and mix well
5. serve and enjoy!!
happy friday!! I hope you all have the BEST weekend :) 💗💗

Sup bronies. The Meyer lemon/blood orange/pepper jelly on my toast got me sweatin'. Had to sip the apple cider pumpkin spice coffee w/ Califia pumpkin spice creamer to palette cleanse while I worked on my loaded scramble, most of the veggies all local and organic because there are great farm stands all around here. Another great meal with tons of different flavors all working together. #vegan#tofuscramble#eatyourveggies#govegan#crueltyfreefood#vegansofinstagram#whatveganseat

Tofu scramble for breakfast! What are your fave tofu scramble toppings?! I love to sauté mushroom, pepper, green onion, tomato, and lightlife sausage. Usually i add in a green like a spinach or kale - but being up north that was kind of limited lol. I also love to melt gusta cheeze in!!! Roasted garlic and pepper seasoning took this to the next level. •
For all my non vegan friends- tofu scramble is a great way to lower cholesterol intake during breakfast. It’s also a fantastic way to get protein, you won’t miss the eggs! It’s delicious. #vegan#veganbreakfast#vegansofig#tofuscramble
Good morning! Rise and grind amirite?! Kidding. Today I did get up and get ready before 5:30 but it’s only 8:15 and I am CRASHING. TGIF and I don’t mean that ironically. Luckily I snuck in a favorite treat and made some @morningstarfarms breakfast sausage patties which you MUST try vegetarian or not. They are delicious. Surprise, surprise I had tofu scramble too.
Fell off the plant-based food sharing but i’m back. Now that I’m settled in Romania with a kitchen and babe the master chef, we’ll be trying out new things. This morning we followed recipes in @bosh.tv cookbook. Just a few spices can do wonders to flavour your food. 🤤
Just like all other recipes of mine, this isn't too elaborate!
Super simple to make✔️
Minimal prep time✔️
Perfect meal prep✔️
Good amount of protein✔️ Vegetarians do not have a lot of protein rich sources to choose from in contrast to non vegetarians who have a wide array to choose from (meat, eggs). Soya Paneer or Tofu is a good alternative to paneer especially if you're looking to lose weight. The caloric and fat content in tofu is much lower than paneer.🙌 Tofu otherwise tastes bland, but if coupled with veggies and eaten in the form of a Bhurji or grilled or as a salad (example), it tastes delicious!
More Tofu recipes coming up soon, so stay tuned! 💖
After dropping my dad off at the airport my sis @mariposita1225 and I hit up @champsdiner (an all vegan diner style restaurant and it was pretty delicious for apps we had mozz sticks and carne asada fries which the seitan asada was on point with the seasonings 👌🏽 then I had pancakes slam with choco pancakes, tofu scramble, hash browns, soysausage, and seitan bacon. My sis had a tofu scramble mix with veggies shrooms, hash browns and some sort of ham (but it wasn’t ham idk 😂) Anyways this place wasssss good and craved my breakfast at night hunger xD and for desert was NY style cheesecake with blueberry topping and pecan crust at the bottom 😍
Another Tofu Scramble!!! I wanted something easy so I just threw a few veggies and tofu in a skillet and seasoned with salt, garlic and smoked paprika... ❤️it. Frozen hash browns are a great go too as well. 😋
