A tasty alternative to scrambled egg.
Course: Breakfast
Keyword: scrambled tofu, tofu
Servings: 1 Person


  • 150 g tofu drained
  • 1/2 small onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp black salt gives eggy taste
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • black pepper to season
  • 1/2 red pepper chopped
  • 60 ml soya/oat cream
  • 1 tbsp olive oil to cook


  • In a medium to large frying pan heat the oil on a medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and pepper and stir until slightly softened (4-5 minutes). Using your hands crumble the tofu into the pan and add the turmeric, salt, pepper and nutritional yeast. Stir thoroughly coating the tofu until golden. Pour in the cream and continue to heat and stir for another 2-3 minutes. Serve hot from the pan with toast. Why not serve with vegan bacon, sausages and baked beans for a full English breakfast. Enjoy!



TIP: You can make this recipe using normal salt and it's still delicious. Like regular scrambled egg you can add other ingredients like chilli, sausage or spinach. It also works well once cooled in a sandwich with mayo.
