This Tofu Veggie Scramble is one of my favorite breakfasts!

It is simple to make and has a ton of healthy things going on.

To get the tofu to be that eggy yellow – sauté it up with some turmeric. You get all of the health benefits that turmeric has and your brain is tricked into thinking you are eating eggs 😉

Before I was vegan I ate eggs ALL the time. I think if I had known how to make tofu like this, I would have given up eggs a long time ago.

For the veggie portion of this scramble I used garlic, onions, zucchini, peppers and jalapeño. A traditional combo that has a lot of flavor and adds a little bit of crunch.

I like to serve this with a side of toast and topped with fresh herbs and a little bit of salsa.

This is also the perfect breakfast for meal prepping. Make a batch of this on Sunday and just heat up a portion each morning. You get a hot breakfast everyday with minimal work.
