Best Ever Tofu Scramble

So if you’re vegan you have probably had a tofu scramble. This doesn’t taste like those. My husband thinks it tastes like scramble eggs and cheese. I don’t think so, but it is good! This is the most often requested breakfast item in my house. I hope you like it.  Just a note, I never actually measure the cream cheese because I hate putting it in, then scraping it out of a measuring spoon, also the measurements don’t have to be exact for it to taste yummy.
Tofu Scramble
  • 8 oz extra firm tofu (not silken)
  • 1 cup kale chopped (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • dash of cayenne
  • few grinds fresh black pepper
  • 1 TBL nutritional yeast
  • 2 TBL vegan cream cheese
  1. Drain tofu.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium high heat.
  3. Once the oil is hot, about 30 seconds, add the tofu and crush it with a fork until it is crumbly.
  4. Add the kale if using.
  5. Cook the tofu and kale until the water is absorbed and the tofu looks dry.
  6. Add the salt, garlic, cayenne, pepper, nutritional yeast, and cream cheese.
  7. Mix everything together and heat until warmed through, just a few seconds longer.
  8. Remove from heat and serve.

  1. My sister is a vegetarian with pretty terrible eating habits and I’m trying to get her to eat healthier so I made this for her tonight. She doesn’t like tofu for the most part and LOVED it!! Thanks so much 🙂


    1. I’m so glad she liked it. There are lots of vegetarians with bad eating habits, mostly from not knowing what to make I think. It’s wonderful you are helping her out by showing her some new ways to cook healthy stuff.
