My Tofu Scramble

Every vegan has a preferred scramble. Some go back to a cherished, dog-eared recipe in their favorite cookbook. Others develop their own and either memorize it or write it all down. I've got mine typed up in my Cookin' Crunk recipe binder, ready to go for my cookbook.

I've been eating this scramble for breakfast everyday with Ezekial toast spread with sweet potato butter. The veggies always vary, but this time I used garlic, spinach, and mushrooms.

Since scrambles are a dime a dozen, my recipe's no big secret. I'm gonna share it with ya'll here. I actually call it Cheeze "Eggs" rather than tofu scramble 'cause it contains nooch and reminds me of my mom's cheese eggs (when she'd melt shredded cheddar in my scrambled eggs).

Bianca's Cheeze "Eggs"
1 lb. extra-firm tofu
1 cup chopped vegetables, optional
3 Tbsp. soymilk
1 tbsp. soy sauce
2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. celery salt

Blend soymilk, soy sauce, and spices in a small bowl. Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking spray or use a couple teaspoons of olive oil to sauté veggies (if using) for 3 to 4 minutes. Crumble in tofu and add spice mixture. Cook several minutes until any water from the tofu is absorbed and tofu is hot.

Serves 4 to 5.

Yum! That looks so good right now. I will have to try that recipe this weekend too!

I've never added soymilk and soy sauce to my scramble! I'll have to try your version out. Looks delicious!

I've made a tofu scramble with soymilk once before and it was super creamy. I'm bookmarking this recipe...yay for nooch! haha

We used to called scrambled eggs "cheesy eggs" when I was little. I couldn't eat them because they grossed me out, but I had forgotten about that name until now!
Love tofu scrambles!

The classic tofu scramble, always good. Thanks for letting us know how you make yours. I haven't had nutritional yeast in months, they don't carry it in this country.

But tomorrow! Tomorrow my dad is bringing some over from Saudi Arabia so it is time for tofu scrambles, mac and no cheese, chips and queso....

sigh. I'm hungry now.

Yum. I will have to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing. As for the bread, I think whole wheat pastry flour would do fine. I just used unbleached all purpose to make it. :)

i'll have to stop being so goshdarned stubborn and try another scramble recipe already.

and also, i'm stoked about sweet potato butter. i'm working detention this sunday and am reserving it for your test recipes.

Yum! I think I will always favor Sarah Kramer's scrambles, as they were some of the first vegan food I ever tried.

I could eat tofu scramble every day too. That looks yummy :) I never thought of adding soymilk, but I do add nooch to mine too.

Would you believe that I made my first tofu scramble ever, only last night?!!! It's true! The first time I tried a tofu scramble was at a vegan restaurant in Portland called Veganopolis (since closed) and it made me gag it was so icky. But, last night's was much better! I will try your recipe next time, it looks simple and yummy, and mighty pretty!

Yum! I usually make a variation the VwaV tofu scramble, but I think I'm going to have to try your version. I love the cheeziness.

Katy said...

Ooh, if I hadn't had a (mostly) successful raw day, I'd go make those cheesey eggs right now!

Tofu scramble is the best! I've never had one made with soy milk, so I will have to try this one. The bright yellow color is gorgeous!

MeloMeals said...

Looks and sounds great!

I haven't had tofu scramble for a month or so.. It's late at night and if I wasn't trying to lose weight, I'd make some right now!

Just tried the scramble and it was awesome! I haven't liked tofu scrambles much in the past, but this one was awesome. Hubby and I devoured it for brunch and we were very, very pleased. This is a definite keeper recipe! Thanks for sharing.
