Tofu scrambled eggs recipe

Friday November 20, 2020 - by

Vegan scrambled eggs, also called as scrambled tofu is delicious, easy and quick to prepare. This recipe tofu scrambled without eggs is a great alternative for vegans. We eat at least once a week. High in protein, full of flavor and super easy to customize to whatever you like. We always loved eggs, but since January of this year we eat totally eggless and there is a good reason for that. Sadly chickens suffer a lot in the egg industry. You don’t have to miss anything though, scrambled tofu is even better. It’s also healthier as it is cholesterol free. Above that, you can combine tofu scramble with almost everything.

Difference scrambled eggs and scrambled tofu

Tofu clearly doesn’t look like eggs when you buy it, but once you crumble the tofu with your fingers and are cooking it in your skillet, it certainly looks like scrambled eggs. It not only looks like it, the texture and taste are also very comparable. Besides, this recipe is incredibly quick and easy to make. Perfect to eat for breakfast or lunch. But you can eat it as dinner as well as long as you eat your vegetables too. Combine it with noodles or rice to add some carbs in your meal.

How to season tofu scramble?

To make the scramble you don’t have to marinate the tofu and wait for it. You can immediately cook and season the tofu in the pan. Give the tofu the flavor you like, absolutely anything is possible because tofu itself has almost no flavor. Choose Italian herbs, eastern spices, soy sauce or chili. In my tofu recipe I add curry powder, turmeric, garlic and smoked paprika powder. Smoked paprika gives the scramble a smoky flavor, highly recommended. At the moment, kale is in season in the Netherlands. That’s why we choose this veggie, but choose whatever is available or in season where you live. Serve the tofu scramble on toast or as we did with tortilla wraps. Cassava is also super delicious to scoop up your tofu with.
