Breakfast Tofu Scramble

Extra-firm tofu, when crumbled, has a scrambled egg texture and, when paired with turmeric, a bit of an egg-like flavor, without any added cholesterol.



  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt



  1. Add 1/4 cup water to a large sauté pan. Once heated, add the onion.
  2. When the aroma releases from the onion and it starts to become translucent, add garlic. Cook for 2 minutes, add peppers and mushrooms and add 1/4 cup water if vegetables are sticking to the pan. Cook for about 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  3. Crumble tofu with hands and add to pan along with turmeric, mixing well. Add cumin powder, pepper, and salt, and cook for another 4-6 minutes until everything is cooked through.
  4. Serve with whole-grain toast or on a warm corn tortilla.
