Spring Tofu Scramble

Good Morning! Most days around here begin with a green smoothie of sorts, or a coconut yogurt & fruit if I am on-the-go, so on the weekends I like to change it up a bit with some vegan pancakes, donuts, or last weekend’s coffee cake, & I also make a scrumptious tofu scramble! I love to update my simple go-to recipe with seasonal flavors & vegetables, & yesterday I whipped up this lovely "Spring Scramble."

I jump for joy when asparagus comes into season, as I find it to be one of the delights of springtime. I’ve been keeping bunches on hand lately & will simply roast & serve with a side of vegan aioli, make a spring tart, throw it on a vegan pizza, toss it in a “bowl” with quinoa, kale & tahini sauce, or add it to a breakfast scramble. One of the great things about a scramble is that it can always be an “everything but the kitchen sink” kind of deal. I often grocery shop & hit the farmers market on Sundays, which makes cleaning out the fridge an essential weekend ritual, which can make for an interesting breakfast situation. Since I food shop with the seasons, this spring inspired scramble was created with ingredients I had on hand…meaning a whole lot of asparagus!

  • 1/2 Tbsp. turmeric
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  1. Add olive oil to hot sauté pan, or cast iron skillet. Add onion & sauté over medium heat until translucent. 
  2. Add asparagus, mushrooms, tomatoes, & crumbled tofu, & cook for 3 minutes.
