A tofu scramble with spinach is very nutritious and is the perfect breakfast protein boost for vegans who want an egg-like dish to start their day. The tofu is crumbled and then sauteed to resemble scrambled eggs—when combined with tomatoes, garlic, mushrooms, and spinach, you may not even realize you're not eating eggs.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tomatoes (chopped)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 3/4 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 (10-ounce) bunch spinach (rinsed)
  • 1 pound firm or extra-firm tofu (well pressed, crumbled)
  • 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice (fresh-squeezed)
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Black pepper (to taste)

Tips

  • Since this scramble warms up well, make the whole recipe and save a portion for the next day.
  • You can serve the scramble along with toast, biscuits, or other breakfast items, or make it into a breakfast wrap to take along or eat on the go. 

Recipe Variations

  • To give the scramble a bit more flavor, add a little extra soy sauce.
  • You can use Bragg's Liquid Aminos or tamari soy sauce to make it gluten-free.
  • Swap out the vegetables for blanched asparagus, zucchini, bell peppers, or other greens such as kale or chard.
