80 calories


  • 8 ounces firm tofu (225 g)

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder

  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper

  • Favorite spices, veggies or vegan cheese


Step 1 First, prepare your tofu. Like most tofu recipes, tofu scramble will taste best if you press the tofu first.

Step 2

Once your tofu is well pressed, slice the tofu into approximately one-inch cubes. Then using either your hands or a fork, crumble it slightly to get the consistency you like for your scrambled tofu.

Step 3

Heat the oil or margarine in a large skillet or frying pan and sauté the chopped onion, pepper, and crumbled tofu for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

Step 4

Add the garlic powder, onion powder, and soy sauce and reduce the heat down to medium. Allow your tofu to cook 5 to 7 more minutes, stirring frequently and adding a bit more oil if needed.

Step 5

Add the nutritional yeast and stir to combine well and make sure that your tofu is well coated.

Step 6

To serve your tofu scramble, eat it just as it is, top it off with salsa, wrap it up in a warmed flour tortilla with a bit of salsa for a breakfast burrito, or top with soy or dairy cheese.


  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container up to 1 week.

  • You can also prepare tofu in advance and freeze it for up to 5 months.

  • You can also freeze cooked tofu scrambled eggs after cooking, however it will give the tofu a chewier texture when reheated.
