VBITG: Tofu Scramble

Vegan but it tastes good! This is a quick and classic tofu scramble recipe. Contains Soy.


Serves: 2 people
Prep time:
5 minutes
Cook time:
11 minutes
Serve with:
avocado toast, potatoes, and OJ


  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper


  1. Chop the tofu and use a fork to crumble it into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Turn stove to medium high heat and coat pan in oil
  3. Prep all your spices into a small mix
  4. Add tofu then spices into pan.
  5. Mix for 5 minutes and make sure pan keeps small oil coating to prevent burning/sticking of tofu to pan. Add a bit more oil if pan is dry!
  6. At this point you have runny style tofu scramble. For a fluffy and slightly golden-brown style (as I prefer) leave each side on for an extra 3 minutes.
Step 1 is always make sure you have all the ingredients!
When you cut the tofu all that matters is that you mash it with the fork so it looks scrambled 🙂
Coat your pan in oil. You don’t NEED cast iron but I love using it!
Add the tofu in keeping your oil and spice mix nearby
See how the pan gets dry? Here is what it looks like to add in a bit more oil!
Now you’re ready to add the spices
Mix it up!
Spread it out to get an even heat distribution
Using a cover keeps the heat and moisture in… even helps keeping a robust sense of flavor too 🙂
At this point the tofu has been cooked for about 8 minutes on medium high heat!
Here is at the 11 minute mark of medium high heat cooking. We’re done and ready to serve!
