Tofu Egg Scamble (Vegan)

We just got back from an amazing vacation to New Orleans. On the very last day there, we went to a Vegan Cafe for breakfast. This Tofu Egg Scamble is inpsired by what we had there. It is so delicious and very easy to make. Kids loved it! ๐Ÿ™‚

What you’ll need:

  • Firm Tofu – 2 boxes
  • Olive Oil – 2 tbsps
  • Nutritional Yeast – 4 tbsps
  • Garlic Powder – 1 to 2 tsp
  • Turmeric Powder – 1 tsp
  • Cayenne Pepper Powder – 1 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Vegan Milk – 2 tbsps
  • Cilantro – a small bunch


  1. In a large cast iron pan, add the Olive Oil.
  2. Squeeze out the blocks of Tofu to take out as much water as possible. Break into large cubes and place in the pan. Using a potato masher, finely mash the tofu.
  3. Cook the tofu on medium-high for 8-10 mins or until most of the water evaporates.
  4. Now add all the spices – Nutritional Yeast, Garlic Powder, Turmeric Powder, Cayenne, and Salt. Mix and cook for a couple more mins.
  5. Add the Milk and mix. Top with chopped Cilantro.

Enjoy with Toast, Avocado, Tomato and Cheese, Salad, Fruits, etc. Makes a delicious breakfast/brunch!!
