Easy tofu scramble recipe is a nutrition packed breakfast, brunch, lunch or light dinner idea. You'll be making it time and time again.

Our easy tofu scramble is a vegan alternative to scrambled egg. It is a wonderfully versatile dish, make it for breakfast, as part of brunch, lunch or as a speedy supper. We love our easy tofu scramble with lots of vegetables and piled on top of sourdough toast.

Silken tofu is high in protein and made from soy milk making this recipe a great start to the day that will keep you full until lunchtime, it might take a few minutes longer to make than scrambled egg but not much longer.

Tasty additions to the easy tofu scramble

In this recipe, we use mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, red onions, garlic and red peppers. Feel free to mix up the vegetables with whatever you have available. Vary the spices and add fresh herbs -parsley and finely sliced chives are a great addition.

To create a delicious twist, whilst cooking add 1/2 a teaspoon of sweet smoked paprika to the frying pan and a few chilli flakes.

Another great addition- to add whilst cooking are any cooked leftover potatoes, roasted and boiled work very well.

How to serve

Easy tofu scramble is great on buttered (vegan butter substitute)  sourdough toast or as part of a larger brunch.

We also mash avocado onto the toast and then add the tofu scramble or the other way round.
