Basic Breakfast Tofu Scramble

(This post may have affiliate links. Please see my disclosure.)

Sometimes, I just want to eat like a king, without having to do so much work in the kitchen. I love cooking, but most days, I’d consider myself the type of cook that wants something quick, cheap, and not complicated. And this is why I whipped up this basic breakfast tofu scramble.

This tofu recipe yields about 3 servings, but honestly,  if you have my kind of appetite, you can probably eat this whole thing. Just depends what else you’re having with this egg-less, tofu scramble.

Basic Breakfast Tofu Scramble Recipe

Cooking Notes:

  • Use firm tofu – that’s going to get you that egg-y bite you’re looking for.
  • If you’re using extra/super firm tofu, you might need to chop in small pieces. It’ll be tough tearing it apart.
  • Be sure to drain and pat dry the tofu as much as you can.
  • For this recipe I used vegan butter, but oil is fine too.
  • To crumble the tofu, just pull apart pieces from the block.
  • This takes about 10-12 minutes to cook.



  1. Drain the excess water from tofu. Pat dry with a clean towel or paper towels.
  2. Over a medium-hot pan, add vegan butter/oil.
  3. Next, pull apart tofu into crumbly pieces and add directly to the pan.
  4. Cook tofu for 3 minutes.
  5. Add the nutritional yeast, smoked paprika, turmeric powder, salt, and garlic powder to the tofu.
  6. Stir tofu and seasonings altogether.
  7. Cook for another 5 minutes over medium. Then, cook at medium-high heat for another 3 minutes.
