Spiced Vegan Scrambled Tofu


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/2 onion, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 red bell pepper, diced

  • 1 block (14 oz) firm tofu, drained and crumbled

  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

  2. Add the diced onion and minced garlic. Sauté until the onion becomes translucent.

  3. Add the diced red bell pepper and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until softened.

  4. Crumble the firm tofu into the skillet, breaking it apart with a fork or spatula.

  5. Add the nutritional yeast, ground turmeric, ground cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine and evenly distribute the spices.

  6. Cook the tofu scramble for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until heated through and lightly browned.

  7. Remove from heat and garnish with fresh cilantro.

  8. Serve hot and enjoy this protein-packed vegan breakfast!

Optional Additions:

  • Sautéed spinach or kale

  • Diced tomatoes

  • Vegan cheese shreds

  • Sliced avocado


  • Feel free to adjust the spices according to your taste preferences. Add more turmeric for a vibrant yellow color or increase the paprika for a smoky kick.

  • Serve the scrambled tofu with whole-grain toast, avocado slices, or a side of fresh fruit for a complete breakfast experience.

  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in a skillet or microwave before enjoying.
