A great savoury breakfast recipe! Serve with whole grain toast and fresh fruit for a simple meal or take it on the go in a breakfast wrap or sandwich.
- ½ block firm, extra-firm, or pressed tofu
- ½ tbsp olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp (or more) nutritional yeast
- ⅛ tsp (or less) of ground cumin
- ⅛ tsp salt
- Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Use your hands to break the tofu into large chunks. Add the tofu and garlic to the hot oil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tofu is golden brown on all or most sides. As the tofu is cooking you can break up larger pieces of tofu with your wooden spoon.
- Once the tofu is golden brown, add the nutritional yeast, cumin, and salt. Stir and continue cooking until the tofu absorbs the nutritional yeast.
- Serve the scrambled tofu with a side of toast and some fresh fruit, or try one of the serving suggestions below.
Breakfast wrap: Enjoy on the go in a breakfast wrap by folding it into a whole wheat tortilla with sliced avocado or non-dairy cheese, lettuce, and tomato.Breakfast sandwich: Make the scramble according to the directions and serve on a whole wheat English muffin with avocado or non-dairy cheese, lettuce, and tomato

A great breakfast recipe--delicious and easy 😊
My first ever tofu scramble and I'm ecstatic! This was so good! I added a dash of tumeric too and it was perfect.
Delicious! Served with avocado, salsa and sauerkraut on organic natural grains tortillas
Thanks Meredith! I really appreciate your comment and I'm so happy you enjoyed it 🙂
So, I Can make this one day and then what? Just heat it the next day?
Just made this with diced green & red pepper, red onions and tomato. Yum! 🙂
This is my first vegan recipe. I made it into a sandwich with lettuce, tomato and a spread of sweet chilli hummus....amazing!!!
Ooh, that sounds delicious! I'm so glad you liked it!!
This sound great. My question is how long will it last? I was thinking of making a batch at the beginning of the week as part of my meal prep.
About 4 days or so. You could definitely prep it at the beginning of the week. If you're concerned about it lasting for those last couple of days, you can freeze some too!
This will surely sound very stupid, but what is “medium-high” heat? Is it not medium heat on the dial because anything higher than medium makes the oil pop. Is medium-high supposed to be between medium and high? Thanks for your help on this 🙂 I look forward to cooking your recipe! (Just FYI I could only give 4 stars as the highest as well).
I had given up on tofu scramble for the longest time. But this recipe is wonderful! I made a breakfast wrap with this and potatoes O'Brien, and it's delicious! Thanks for the recipe!!
I've been vegetarian for 15 months and vegan the past 9. I've really started relearning to cook. It is my goal to be a much better vegan cook than I ever was in pre V/v days. I tried your vegan tofu scramble recipe this morning. I cooked it exactly as you described with one exception. Every time I have ever cooked tofu, I noticed that it worked better if the salt was added while the tofu was cooking. So, that's what I did. About 1/2 way through cooking the tofu, I added a few spritzes of freshly ground salt. I don't have any idea if this made a difference, but I really enjoyed your recipe. It will be my standard. Thanks for posting/sharing it. By the way, I tried to give it 5 stars but this web site would only allow me to give it 4. Weird. Rainey
I am a newbie vegan. After watching What the Health...we decided that we were going to go vegan. I do miss eggs though, I am going to try the tofu scramble for breakfast this morning. This is week 2 for us and it is amazing...I thought is was going to be sooo very hard to change...I love the way my joints don't ache and I am feeling better every day.
That's is so so wonderful to hear! I'm so glad you've decided to go vegan, I hope you love it as much as I do 🙂 Thanks for commenting!
Me too Wisteria! I watched what the health and almost threw up. I was almost full Keto diet, I am apalled! So I am trying Vegan too and this does look delicious!!
I tried this just this morning, it is EXCELLENT!
Yay! I'm so glad you enjoyed it! 😀
To me, it was lacking flavor. I added some extra salt but felt like it was missing something. I'm glad I tried it though.
Thanks for sharing!
Try adding black salt for the egg taste, Phil
This is a perfect, basic tofu scramble recipe. I've tried it so many ways - with black beans, with salsa, on toast - it's impossible to mess up and very delicious. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Oh I am so happy to hear that Serri! You should try it in a breakfast wrap too, it's delicious!
