Surely a Tofu Scramble can’t be a delicious as an Egg Scramble?
Since turning vegan, I don’t miss meat but I did initially miss eggs as it was a staple I had almost every day for breakfast and it had a great protein hit! This easy, simple tofu scramble has helped me satisfy my egg cravings and did you know that tofu actually has more protein than eggs? It’s the scramble showdown and of course the vegan option is the front runner in my eyes.
Just as you can with eggs, you can add ingredients that you want with the tofu scramble like vegan sausage as an example. Of course, that’s not the healthiest option but if you’re a newbie vegan it may help you adding in meat like substitutes initially.
I prefer to have my tofu scramble with mushrooms, avocado, and as I have a major sweet tooth I do tend to have some agave nectar to my tofu scramble – Please don’t judge me!
