Tofu Scram For The Fam – Vegan, GF

Tofu scramble is one of the ultimate vegan breakfasts! This recipe yields 4 serves and packs a flavour punch!

I’ve been spamming my instagram with my many Tofu Scrambles for YEARS now!

And as many times as I’ve made it… I’ve never actually written up a mass recipe for it.

So here it is, a recipe that serves 4 people or as I like to call it ‘meal prep scram’ or ‘scram for the fam’.

This recipe can be served on toast if you please or on it’s own with some avocado and sauerkraut on the side like I do! 🙂

Ingredients:

TOFU MIX: (Prepare First)

450g of NON GMO Firm Tofu, washed and crumbled
1/2 cup of Unsweetened Almond Milk
4 tsp Turmeric Powder
4 tsp Nutritional Yeast (Savoury Yeast Flakes)
4 tsp Dijon Mustard
4 tsp Minced Garlic
1 tsp Pink Salt
1 tsp Black Pepper

Depending on the week I may also add 4 tsp of Curry Powder as well for a bit of a change!

ADDED VEGE: (Final Step)

1 small Red Onion thinly sliced
2 cups of Button Mushrooms Sliced (8 mushrooms)
2 cups of Roughly Chopped Kale
1 cup of Chopped Spinach
1/4 – 1/2 cup of Sun-dried Tomatoes Chopped
2 tsp of the Oil that comes from the Sun-dried Tomato container
Salt
Pepper

Method:

  1. Begin by removing the Tofu from the packet and gently wash it under some water. Then using your fingers, crumble the Tofu into smaller little pieces into the large bowl.
  2. Then add the Turmeric, Mustard, Garlic, Nutritional Yeast, Almond milk, Salt and Pepper and mix until the Tofu is completely covered and turns bright yellow. Set aside to marinate.
  3. Slice the mushrooms and Onion, then roughly chop the Kale and the Spinach. Chop the Sun-dried Tomatoes into smaller pieces.
  4. Then in a pan heat the 2 tsp Sun-dried Tomato oil over a medium heat. Add the Onion, Mushrooms and Kale and sauté for 3 minutes or until the Onion has softened.
  5. Turn the heat down a little and add the Tofu mix to the pan. Stir to completely coat the vegetables in the mix. Turn the heat back up to medium and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently.
  6. Add the Sun-dried Tomatoes and the Spinach, stir and then cook for a further 1 minute or until satisfied with the consistency of the scramble. Longer cooking = firmer texture, shorter cooking time = wetter mix.
  7. Season with more Salt and Pepper.
  8. Serve with your favourite breakfast sides.

Serves 4 with toast, or serves 3 without.

I served mine with Hummus, Sauerkraut and avocado!

I hope you enjoy this recipe!

Vegan Burrito Bowls

If you wanna impress your friends and have them over for Mexican night or you just want a funky meal prep meal… this is the meal for you 🙂

Hello friends,

It’s been a while, but I’m back with another meal prep option for you all…. MEXICAN BURRITO BOWLS! You honestly can’t go wrong with Mexican.

Burrito bowls are a really easy way to throw things together in a bowl and just enjoy the delicious goodness. Quinoa is a great source of protein on a plant based diet and a great way to bulk up a meal and offer you longer lasting energy.

There are a few components to this recipe… but all you are going to do is prepare everything and then put them into separate bowls and at the end you will create your burrito bowl 🙂

I hope you enjoy this recipe guys! I would love to hear from you on instagram at @stephsanzaro to hear your thoughts snd see your wonderful creations!

Cook on a low heat and stir every minute until it goes bright yellow and starts to brown slightly. Remove from heat, season with a pinch of salt.
  5. SALSA: Add the mango, tomatoes, cucumber, onion and coriander to a bowl. Squeeze in half a lime, season with salt and pepper.
