One of the biggest surprises of living a vegan life is my new found love of tofu. Scrambled, baked, fried, mashed, marinated… the list of ways I have enjoyed tofu are endless. In this delicious vegan brunch recipe, we mix loads of veggies and spices with tofu to create a perfectly married vegan Southwestern Tofu Scramble served with some SERIOUS EATS “Best Roasted Potatoes Ever” (with an oil-free VegInspired twist – we basically cooked them on a parchment lined sheet pan and omitted the oil). Let’s not delay your breakfast, or you’ll have to call it brunch! (hahaha)
Southwestern Tofu Scramble
- 1/2 medium onion sliced
- 2 bell peppers sliced
- 1 lb mushrooms quartered
- 1 medium zucchini quartered and sliced
- 2 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 2 14 oz blocks of firm tofu drained and crumbled
- turmeric - enough to add the desired color to tofu
- salt and pepper to taste
In a large skillet or paella pan, sauté peppers and onions on medium heat until soft
Add zucchini and mushrooms and sauté until cooked through
Stir in the cumin and chili powder
Fold in the crumbled tofu, stir, and heat through
Serve with some salsa and guacamole (and these SERIOUS EAT POTATOES!)
We hope this inspires you to add some veggies and tofu to your breakfast (brunch, lunch, or even dinner) meals. This recipe was incredible, but you can always change up the veggies to use what you have on hand. Happy Brunching!
