Tumeric Tofu Scramble

The other day I was starving and whipped up a vegan scramble using tofu instead of eggs, and I posted a photo on my Instagram stories. I had quite a few people message me and ask for the recipe, so here it is!


1/2 block firm tofu

1 tsp tumeric

1/4 cup each of finely clopped red onion, red pepper, mushroom, & spinach (or vegetable of your choice)

1 -2 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp nutritional yeast

himalayan salt & pepper to taste



Finely chop up your veggies. Set aside.

Heat frying pan on medium heat, add olive oil. (I recommend a cast iron pan).

Crumble up tofu with fork or hands into bowl until it resembles scrambled egg. Add tumeric and mix in.

Once pan is hot, throw the veggies in and stir for 2 minutes, add in tofu mixture. Cook on medium heat for a few minutes.

Add nutritional yeast, salt and pepper to taste, mix and serve. Voila! Serves 1-2 people.

I did make this for my mom once, and she finished the whole thing and did not realize she was not eating eggs. Mind you, my mom is 76 and I don’t think her taste buds are what they used to be! However, I do feel like this is an awesome way to replace a normal meal with a vegan option, give it a try and let me know what you think!
