Spanish scrambled tofu

Serves: 4
Prep: 10
Cook: 5

    This Spanish inspired quick and easy egg substitute recipe is an awesome breakfast for Vegans or those looking to reduce the intake of eggs in their diet. Turmeric gives it a yolk-yellow colour and the crumbled tofu gives it a similar texture to scrambled egg. It is protein packed and a great fuel for your body.


    • 2 tsp olive oil
    • 1 clove garlic, crushed
    • ½ red onion, sliced
    • ½ red capsicum, sliced
    • ½ punnet cherry tomatoes, halved
    • ¼ tsp chilli flakes (optional)
    • 1 ½ tsp ground turmeric
    • 350g firm tofu, chopped
    • ¼ cup whole pitted kalamata olives
    • 1 cup baby spinach
    • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes (optional)
    • ½ tsp salt


    1. Heat oil in a frypan and saute garlic, onion and capsicum until soft.
    2. Add tomatoes, chilli flakes and turmeric and saute for 1 minute. Place chopped tofu in a food processor and process until mixture is evenly crumbled.
