Scrambled Tofu

Simple Tofu Scramble

There’s nothing more I love than being able to wake up on Saturday morning (whenever I want) and cooking breakfast. During the week, I wake up giving myself just enough time to make oatmeal and run out of the door. What can I say? Sleep is one of my highest priorities 🙂 This particular weekend was no different, I woke up with a savory breakfast on my mind so I decided on a scrambled tofu with roasted potatoes and avo toast.Scrambled Tofu

This is one of my favorite meals y’all! It’s simple, customizable, and most importantly: delicious! The recipe I’ve provided below is just for a basic tofu scramble, no add-ins. This is where you can get creative, or clean out your fridge! The last time I made this, I had some leftover peppers and onions from a meal earlier in the week as well as some spinach that was about to go bad. I tossed them all in the tofu scramble and avoided having to toss them out! WIN! I’m trying my best to limit and be more conscious of the food I waste, so making tofu scrambles on the weekend usually helps out with that.

In addition, it’s also helpful to note that the recipe below only requires using half of the tofu block. However, if you’re cooking for a group, it might be helpful to use the entire block and simply double the recipe. No big deal! If you’re into meal-prepping, doubling the recipe would work for you as well. Scrambled tofu tastes just as good reheated as it does on the first day. In fact, I just had some this morning 🙂 It was so good!

So what are you waiting for? Get in the kitchen and get to scramblin’! Let me know what you think in the comments below!
