Simple tofu scramble

For some just starting their vegan journey, they may agree one of the hardest things about being vegan is giving up cheese and egg. This is especially when it comes to savoury breakfast options, which is often all about eggs, eggs and more eggs!!

If you’re missing a good scrambled egg breakfast, this recipe will be your MUST-TRY egg alternative recipe – a simple and DELICIOUS tofu scramble.

The gorgeous dish tasty can be served with a light serving of tomatoes, toast or avocado on the side. You can also upgrade to a full English breakfast by topping it with veggie sausages, hash browns, mushrooms and baked beans! Sound good? Here’s how to make it:

Place the cherry tomatoes on the baking tray and grill for 15 minutes. Fresh cherry tomatoes are so super sweet and juicy that you won’t need oil or seasoning.

Wrap the tofu in a kitchen towel and press down on it for 5 minutes (about as much weight as two thick books). This is done to remove as much as water as possible. Mash the tofu with a fork but leave some nice big chunks and set aside.

Add the sauce ingredients to a bowl, whisk and mix well.

This is my favourite breakfast dish lately. It’s such a healthy, satisfying, quick and easy dish to make. What’s more, it contains 26 grams of protein per serve, which makes a great choice to start your energetic day.
