This is The Ultimate Tofu Scramble as it's jam-packed with all kinds of goodness like mashed chickpeas to make it more filling, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes because no "scrambled eggs" is complete without it, and Kale for some added greens.


You can enjoy this Tofu Scramble for breakfast, brunch, lunch or even dinner! It is also great for leftovers the next day, cold or hot.


You can eat it in a bowl as is (maybe with some avo on the side), or in a wrap (as photographed), or on some toast. The options are endless. You can also have it as a topping with (click on the name for the recipe):

Cauliflower Steaks

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms


To take the Tofu Scramble to the next level, serve it with some of our famous Chimichurri. If you don't have that, you can garnish it with some fresh coriander and lime.


If you've read my article, 8 Ways to make cooking easier and faster, then you'll know I like to use store-bought spice blends to help speed up the cooking process. Find a mild to medium curry powder that you like and that's versatile. I love using these curry powders for this dhal and so many other dishes:

  • Cape Malay Curry / Cape Herb & Spice  / From Kibsons

  • Roasted Curry Powder / Cook with M&S / From Marks & Spencer
