Easy Tofu Scramble Recipe

Breakfast is a meal that is often overlooked, despite being labelled as the most important meal of the day.

I often see my fellow vegans skipping breakfasts or ending up having the same foods day after day. I find coming up with vegan breakfasts a bit of a task, but creating a delicious tofu scramble recipe was a breakthrough.

Not only does tofu scramble open the door to so many breakfast options, but it’s also so densely nutritious and packed full of protein.

This goes great on toast, or as part of a ‘full English’ breakfast with some vegan sausages, bacon, hash brows, tomatoes and beans! However you decide to eat it, you won’t be disappointed



Yield: 2 portions

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 block firm tofu

  • 1 tbsp vegan margarine

  • 100g button mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 medium, onion finely diced

  • 1 tsp turmeric

  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

  • 100g spinach

  • Salt and pepper

  • ½ red pepper, finely diced


  1. Drain your tofu, and then using a fork, start at the edge and squish your tofu so it starts breaking apart into small pieces, do this for the entire block.

  2. In a medium pan on high heat, melt your margarine and add in your sliced mushrooms and onion, followed by your tofu, pepper and spinach. Fry these off for a couple of minutes.

  1. Add in your garlic and turmeric, the turmeric is what will give your tofu scramble its authentic colour.

  2. Cook off for another couple of minutes, then season to taste and serve!
