Favorite Tofu Scramble

My Favorite Tofu Scramble is packed with nutrients and flavor. It’s super QUICK and super DELICIOUS!


I love tofu scrambles, they are so versatile and such an easy breakfast, lunch or dinner option. This is my go-to recipe, I truly love the texture and flavor combo and I hope you love it too! It’s got juicy veggies, tasty herbs, healing spices, plant-based protein, good-for-the-gut fiber and a little bit of heat (but you can leave it out if you are not into spicy food).


It’s made with SIMPLE, WHOLESOME INGREDIENTS. The best kind of meal. I like to serve it with avocado toasts on the side, but it’s also delicious with oven-baked potatoes, sautéed mushrooms or any other veggie of choice.


The Recipe serves 1, so double it if you’ve got company!

Servings 1


  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 big garlic clove
  • ¼ cup finely chopped red pepper
  • 4 oz firm tofu - 125 grams
  • ¼ tsp chili flakes
  • ¼ tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp Kala namak - also called black salt*
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk, optional
  • cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ¼ cup peas
  • ¼ cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp sriracha, omit if you don't like spicy food
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 2 slices of rye or GF bread - toasted if preferred
  • ½ avocado, chopped or mashed with a fork


  • Use a tofu press or simply wrap the tofu in a clean towel and place something heavy (like a couple of books) on top to press out excess water. After 5-10 minutes, crumble with your hands or mash it with a fork.
  • Heat olive oil over medium heat.
  • Add onions and sauté for about 3 minutes.
  • Add garlic and red pepper and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Add tofu, spices, Kala namak and nutritional yeast and cook for another 3 minutes; always stirring to keep the spices from burning. If it starts to stick to the bottom add 1 or 2 Tbps of unsweetened almond milk. If not, skip it.
  • Stir in the tomatoes and peas. Cook for 2 more minutes, until the tomatoes begin to soften.
  • Turn off the heat and add the parsley and sriracha. Stir to combine.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve and enjoy!


*Adds an eggy taste. Even if you are not a fan of eggs (I’m not), try not to skip it. It’s so flavorful and delicious when combined with all the other spices.
