One of the things I missed the most when I became vegan was scrambled eggs–not necessarily by themselves, but in, specifically, Cosi egg and cheese bagel sandwiches. I found Fantastic Tofu Scramble and fell in love! It filled that void that I was feeling.
I imagine if you’re not vegan all of the time, you might think this is a poor substitute for scrambled eggs. However, I have found them to be filling, tasty, and surprisingly similar to the consistency of scrambled eggs. They are also incredibly healthy–the tofu packs a lot of protein. I also add a lot of nutritional yeast (which gives it a cheesy flavor). I also add tomatoes, green onions, mushrooms, or any other veggie that I have around.
Directions are on the box, but all the basic, basic recipe requires is a box of the tofu scramble mix (I order in bulk online) and a package of firm (not super firm) tofu, drained.
In the event that you can’t find the scramble mix, or want to go rogue, I add in about a 1/2 cup of nutritional yeast, about 2 tablespoons of tumeric, about 1 tablespoon black pepper, 1 tablespoon salt, about 1 tablespoon each of garlic power and onion powder.
We also love to add a little spice–whether it’s with chipotle pepper flakes, siracha or even tabasco.
