Yogi recipe: scrambled tofu

1 Comment

This is a very simple, yummy and filling recipe for a delicious brunch with scrambled tofu instead of scrambled eggs.


  • Firm tofu (about 250 g)
  • Turmeric powder
  • Nutritional yeast flakes
  • Shoyu or Tamari sauce
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Himalaya or sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Coconut oil (or olive oil)
  • Optional: cherry tomatoes, mushrooms and/ or pesto

Scrambled tofuPreparation:

  1. Press the excess water out of the tofu (by pressing the tofu above the sink with both hands or by putting it between 2 plates and adding weight – like a heavy cookbook – on the top plate).
  2. Crumble the tofu using a fork or other kitchen utensil.
  3. Add turmeric, the soya sauce of your choice, a pinch of Cayenne pepper and sprinkle with the nutritional yeast and black pepper. Mix everything until the all the spices and seasoning are well blended together.
  4. Leave the mixture for about 20 minutes to allow the tofu to soak up the flavours.
  5. Heat up the (coconut) oil in a skillet and fry up the crumbled tofu until it turns a bit brown (or however you like it).


Serve on sourdough bread with your choice of pesto or veganaise (ideas: kale, parsley) and with stir-fried mushrooms and/ or cherry tomatoes.

Tip: the nutritional yeast gives the scrambled tofu a nice nutty flavour. You can vary the amount of spices and soya sauce according to your own preference, just experiment until you are happy with the tastes.
