Tofu Scramble



  • 1/2 white onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 block tofu, drained and pressed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika


After draining off all excess water from the tofu, gently crumble it, and set aside.

Sauté the onion and green pepper in oil for three minutes; stir often. Add tofu and sauté for another minute. Add remaining ingredients, reduce heat to medium and allow everything to cook for five more minutes, stirring frequently.

Serve hot with a side of 100 percent whole grain toast and fruit. This can also be wrapped in a tortilla and eaten like a breakfast burrito.

Recipe tip:

What is nutritional yeast? Nutritional yeast is a non-active form of yeast that adds a delicious, cheesy flavor to many dishes. It is very high in vitamin B12. You can find it in the spice section of your local health food store.

    Some people don't consider breakfast complete without eggs - scrambled, fried or hardboiled. But for those who don't like eggs or choose not to eat them, a tofu scramble comes mighty close to the "real thing." It takes even less time to prepare than scrambled eggs.

    Tofu is made from soybeans and makes a great substitute for meat. Some tofu is fortified with calcium and vitamin D, which keep your bones healthy. Another health benefit of tofu is from the isoflavones in it that may protect against certain types of cancer.
