Vegan and need a breakfast idea that’s not oatmeal or an elaborate smoothie bowl? First of all, what’s wrong with you? Second, let me introduce you to your new favorite breakfast option: Tofu Scramble!
Protein packed, this dish is the perfect way to keep you full and focused all day without any animal products. Now I won’t lie and say tofu is exactly the same as eggs, but with a little kala namak it’s pretty darn close. If you’ve never heard of this spice before, it’s a black salt that is often used in south Asian dishes. It has a sulphuric taste that’s very similar to eggs, making it the perfect addition to any vegan’s spice cabinet. You can find it in Indian grocery stores or online…:, but you can also simply substitute it for regular kosher salt. It just won’t be as “eggy”.
This breakfast is also a great meal prep option and couldn’t be easier. I paired mine with some roasted, sheet-pan vegetables. While I’m cooking the tofu on the stove, the veggies are able to cook in the oven. With this recipe you can kill two birds with one stone….I guess I shouldn’t use that metaphor with all the vegans reading this, but you get the picture.
The vegetables you want to pair with your scramble are completely up to you. I went with red onion, sweet potato, tomato, and mushrooms, but feel free to substitute them with whatever you like! Pick up whatever is in season and cheap at the grocery store that roasts well. You can have different vegetables every time, meaning this dish never gets boring!
Have it plain or on toast with a bit of vegan cheese and
