Easy Vegan Tofu Scramble


1 block firm tofu (drained well)
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon chopped onion
teaspoon turmeric
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons vegan bacon bits (optional)
chopped green onion (optional)


Combine vegetable oil, Bragg’s (or tamari, or soy sauce), turmeric, onion and garlic in a skillet and heat on medium, while cutting the tofu into small pieces. Lower the temp of the burner a bit and add the tofu to the mixture in the skillet. As the tofu cooks, mash it up and make sure that the tofu and seasoning mixture are mixed well.
If you want to include vegan bacon bits, they can be added as a topping after or folded into the mix towards the end of cooking. Cooking them in the scrambled tofu for a few minutes will soften them, which I like better.

This recipe is a great base recipe that also can stand on its own! I usually add zucchini or chopped bell pepper to my tofu scrambles. Fresh or frozen spinach is also really good. Saute the veggies for a bit before adding the tofu and voila! a delicious and nutritious breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Ooo...I've never tried it with Zucchini - that is going on my shopping list right now!


Here is a super easy vegan scrambled tofu recipe - it's sort of my basic tofu scramble recipe that I then change up to create different vegan scrambles.

I use a potato masher to mash the tofu into a more scrambled egg-like texture. Topping the scrambled tofu with green onion adds a crisp, fresh flavor. This is a very simple recipe that is quick and de-lish. I generally serve this with GimmeLean sausage, or Fakin’ Bacon, and toast.
