If you are someone who thinks that eggs cannot be veganized, wait until you taste this vegan version of scrambled eggs. I would say it tastes better than the original version with a healthy dose of the good nutrients and protein.

Scrambled eggs are a very popular go-to breakfast item, and this recipe is perfect for those who are transitioning into a vegan diet or are missing this old favorite.

Vegan Tofu Scramble

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. or 1 cup Hemp tofu (A great alternative to soy tofu)
  • 1 inch piece of ginger—finely chopped or according to taste
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1 zucchini, shredded
  • Half of a tomato, chopped

  • 1 Tbsp cumin seeds
  • Pinch of turmeric
  • Pinch of coriander powder
  • Salt & pepper, according to taste
  • 1 Tbsp sesame or coconut oil
  • Optional parsley and sunflower seeds for garnish

Preparation

  1. Heat the oil in a flat pan. Add the cumin and ginger when the oil gets hot.
  2. When the cumin seeds are slightly roasted, add the tofu and other spices and stir fry them for a couple of minutes.
  3. When tofu gets dry, add the veggies (carrots, zucchini, and tomato, and anything else you might want!). You can also add extra water sparingly so it won’t burn.
  4. Once the veggies are soft, turn the heat off and add the spinach.
  5. Cover the pan  for 1–2 minutes so the spinach gets cooked.
  6. Garnish with some fresh parsley and sunflower seeds.
