This Spiced Vegan Scrambled Tofu recipe was born out of a desire to create a hearty and delicious vegan alternative to scrambled eggs. Inspired by the versatility of tofu and the warm flavors of spices, this recipe combines a medley of aromatic herbs and spices with protein-rich tofu. My family and friends love how the tofu absorbs the flavors, creating a savory and satisfying breakfast. Get ready to start your day with a protein-packed delight!

Spiced Vegan Scrambled Tofu


  • One tablespoon of olive oil

  • 1/2 onion, diced

  • Two cloves garlic, minced

  • One red bell pepper, diced

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

  • Two tablespoons of nutritional yeast

  • One teaspoon of 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 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, 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.
