Tofu and Potato Breakfast Scramble

Tofu and Potato Breakfast Scramble

I find that begin vegan leaves me with minimal breakfast options. Whenever I search online, I always find smoothies, pancakes, oatmeal, or smoothie bowls. Now, I love all this stuff as much as the next person, BUT sometimes I need a little more substance.

I’ve seen tofu scrambles before but none of them really intrigued me so I decided to make my own. I absolutely loved it! The first time I made it, I put it in tortillas (aka – pre wrapped burritos) and placed them in the freezer ready to go for the week. All I had to do was microwave them and I was on my way — loved it.

The second time I made this, I decided to keep it how it was and place it in the fridge. Then in the morning I could make a burrito if I had time, OR just heat it on a plate and heat it as is. Options people, options.

This breakfast scramble really keeps me full and makes me feel good about my breakfast choices! You can also be creative and add a ton of more veggies, take out the potatoes, add more potatoes, use different spices, I mean this is really a versatile recipe for all vegans in a breakfast rut!

    This looks great! Am I missing something, when do you add the tofu and how do you make it yellow (turmeric?)

      Hi Howard — good catch! I edited the recipe to add the tofu back in. There actually is no turmeric in this recipe, but you can totally add it for color and flavor! I would recommend starting with 1/4 teaspoon and going from there 🙂
