Tasty Tofu Veggie Scramble

This is my tasty vegan tofu scramble in it's basic form but make no mistake, it is super delicious!  Even to people that love eggs.  This can be dressed up with your favorite veggies, sauces, or spices.  It's great in a whole wheat tortilla, on toast, or with homefries. 

Serves 2


½ block firm or extra firm tofu, drained and pressed
1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp turmeric
½ tsp garlic powder
2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
½ cup vegetable broth
1/3 cup diced green bell pepper
1/3 cup diced onion
1/3 cup diced crimini mushrooms
1-2 Tbsp garbanzo bean flour (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste


In a medium bowl, crumble the tofu and add nutritional yeast, turmeric, garlic powder, and soy sauce and stir to mix (mashing with a fork helps incorporate all the flavors into the tofu). Set aside.

Add just enough of the broth (set the rest aside) to cover the bottom of a large skillet and heat for one minute over medium heat. Add the tofu mixture and peppers, onions, mushrooms. Cook for 5-8 minutes or until vegetables reach desired tenderness, adding more vegetable broth as needed.  If using garbanzo bean flour, add in just at the end to thicken up any excess liquid and add some creaminess to the scramble.
