This month’s Recipe of the Week theme is breakfast—the most important meal of the day, right? And if you’re like me and don’t want to eat a bunch of cholesterol-filled chicken periods, you want to skip the eggs. I’m sharing the dish I’m most obsessed with right now—and yeah, I have been known to eat this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner: Tofu scramble!
My fave part about tofu scramble? You can throw in whatever veggies, seasonings, and sauces you like! I used to follow recipes strictly from books, and while those are usually tasty, there’s nothing like coming up with your own take on this classic vegan dish. Here’s mine:
‘Cheesy’ Tofu Scramble With Avocado
1 block extra-firm tofu, drained
2 Tbsp. Bragg Liquid Aminos
Garlic powder, black pepper, and turmeric, to taste
1 1/2 cups nutritional yeast (if you don’t know what this is, do yourself a favor and educate yo’self! Nutritional yeast gives dishes a nutty, cheesy flavor and is packed with B vitamins!)
1 tomato, diced
3 green onions, sliced
1 bunch spinach, chopped
1 small head broccoli, chopped
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 avocado, halved and sliced
This goes great along with toast—yum! And because of the nutritional yeast and turmeric, it will have a nice yellow look to it, which can trick even the most annoying meat-eating relative.
Seriously, make this over the weekend, and tell me what you think!
