Hearty Vegan Tofu Scramble Recipe

This recipe is perfect for a laid-back weekend morning and is quick and easy to make. I actually find this even more flavorful than a regular egg scramble minus the guilt!  Tofu is such a blank slate so it’s really easy to cater it to your tastebuds.  I really love how moist this is too!

Ingredients

Scramble

  • 12 oz extra firm tofu firm works too
  • 2 tbsp oat milk for creaminess
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 golden onion, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 bag spinach about 2.5 cups
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp giardinera 2 tbsp is what I prefer
  • 1 bunch dill, sliced garnish
  • 2 slices Follow Your Heart smoked gouda cheese, chopped into small pieces optional
  • 1 stalk green onion, sliced

Spices

  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp red pepper
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tbsp water depends on the texture of the spices

Instructions

  • Drain tofu for at least 20 minutes wrapped up in a paper towel with something heavy pressing it.
  • Prepare spice mixture in a small bowl by adding all of the spices and then the water to stir.  It needs to make a nice watery paste.
  • Chop up the onion, spinach, pepper, garlic, green onions, and dill. Then chop up your tofu into 1/4 inch slices and crumble with your fork or fingers.
  • Heat up a medium frying pan on medium heat and add 2 tbsp of olive oil to the pan. Then add the onion and sauté for about 2 minutes. Then add the red pepper and sauté for 2 more minutes.  Then add the garlic, then stir in the spinach gradually for about 2 more minutes.
  • Once the vegetables are properly sautéed, add in the tofu and distribute evenly with the vegetables for 3 minutes.  Add your oat milk to to the scramble to give it a creamy texture.  Add your spices to the tofu-veggie mixture and sauté for about 6-8 minutes until the tofu is slightly golden-brown. 
  • Add in the giardiniera, optional vegan cheese, and drizzle with green onion and dill for about 1 more minute on low heat.
