High protein and super eggy vegan tofu scramble! This hearty and satisfying vegan breakfast is super close to scrambled eggs in taste without actually being scrambled eggs, which is super cool! Perfect for vegans who miss eggs and those who just want a hearty healthy breakfast.


For Serving:

  • Black Pepper
  • Chopped Chives
  • Fried Tomatoes
  • Sliced Avocado


  1. Mash the tofu with a fork but leave some nice big chunks.
  2. Add the nutritional yeast, turmeric, paprika, dijon mustard, garlic powder, black salt and onion powder to a bowl. Then add the soy milk and whisk it in so you have a nice sauce.
  3. Add the vegan butter to a frying pan and heat until hot. Add the tofu and fry it until lightly browned, being careful not to break it up too much when moving it around the pan.
  4. Add the sauce and fold it in. Fry it until you’ve achieved desired consistency, the tofu will absorb the sauce so you can have it as wet or as dry as you like.
  5. Top with some black pepper and chopped chives and serve with some fried tomatoes and sliced avocado.


*You can switch the black salt for regular salt if you don’t want to use it/can’t get hold of it but I do recommend you get some and try it! You just won’t believe the eggy flavor it brings!

*Nutritional estimate is based on the tofu scramble only, without any extras for serving like fried tomato or sliced avocado.
