Tofu Scramble

Tofu scramble is a great vegan substitute for scrambled eggs that I eat almost daily! Simple and nutritious, this scramble is perfect for topping on toast, stuffing into a burrito, or eating by itself (it really is that good).

Ingredients/ shopping list:

  • 1 tbs avocado, olive, or vegetable oil
  • 1 16-oz block tofu (I recommend medium or firm for the best texture)
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • pinch of salt and pepper, to taste
  • ½  teaspoon kala namak (black salt), optional

Step 1.

Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Mash the block of tofu right in the pan, with a potato masher or a fork. You can also crumble it into the pan with your hands.
