Basic Breakfast Tofu Scramble

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

Sometimes, I just want to eat like a queen, without having to do so much work in the kitchen.

As much as I love cooking, 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. It just depends on what else you’re having with this egg-less, tofu scramble.

Basic Breakfast Tofu Scramble Recipe

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Keyword: Tofu Scramble


  • 1 Block firm tofu
  • 1 teaspoon vegan butter
  • 1 tablespoon  nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt to taste


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


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