This vegan tofu scramble with pesto is one of my favorite things to make for breakfast! I use this basic recipe for all of my tofu scrambles, but you can just throw in whatever spices and veggies that you like along with the tofu and make it your own.
As a vegan, breakfast foods can be hard. Scrambled eggs were one of my favorites, and I was sad at first when I thought of giving them up. The first time that I heard of a tofu scramble, I was very skeptical. Surprisingly, tofu has a very similar texture to eggs and it just absorbs the flavors of the seasonings. It gives you tons of cholesterol free protein that keeps you full all morning. You can load it up with tons of your favorite veggies too.
Pesto Tofu Scramble
What veggies should I use?
Feel free to add or subtract any of the veggies to suit your family’s taste. I prefer pesto, but any herb that you like will flavor it nicely. Let me know if you have tried it and what are your favorite things to add!
What kitchen tools do I need to make a tofu scramble?
It’s great to have a food processor so you can just throw in any veggies that you like and chop them up quickly. I also use an iron skillet to cook my tofu scramble. It cooks evenly and the tofu never sticks. If you don’t have an iron skillet, you may want to use a non-stick skillet or more oil for cooking so the tofu doesn’t stick.
Can I make it ahead of time?
Yes! This is a great breakfast to make ahead of time. You can store it in microwave safe containers and keep it in the fridge for up to 3 days. Then, simply microwave it for a delicious hot breakfast or high protein snack.
How do I find vegan pesto?
Make it yourself! It is so easy to make your own! See my vegan pesto recipe to see how I make a big batch and freeze it so I always have some on hand to add to recipes!
