Easy Vegan "Bacon and Eggs" Tofu Scramble Recipe

By

Scrambled tofu with vegetarian bacon - vegan

Tofu scramble is a popular vegetarian and vegan breakfast dish because it is quick and easy to make, nutritious - especially if you add extra veggies - and of course, very tasty as well! This recipe uses vegetarian "bacon" for a traditional American breakfast taste - vegan "bacon and eggs"! 

When I first went vegan, I'll admit I wasn't a big fan of fake bacon, but I've since really grown to like it on occasion, and I think you'll find that even if it doesn't quite taste the same as regular bacon, the smell is quite convincing, and it looks great on your plate!

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 - 4 strips vegetarian mock bacon
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 container firm or extra-firm tofu, well pressed and mashed
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp soy sauce or Braggs Liquid Aminos
  • 1/2 tsp nutritional yeast
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

Cook the vegetarian "bacon" in olive oil for a few minutes, just until cooked but not crisp. Cut into bite-sized pieces.

Return bacon to the pan along with the mashed tofu, onions, bell pepper, turmeric and soy sauce, stirring to combine. Sautee for a 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently and adding more oil if needed.

Remove from heat and stir in nutritional yeast. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
