If you're not eating tofu, you're really missing out on a super food. Tofu is made from soybeans. It originally was found in China, but is now used in all types of foods, around the world. Tofu is high in protein and Iron, two nutrients a Vegan should always try to include in every meal.

I have tried many tofu scramble recipes before finally perfecting one. This is an instructable on how to make a healthy (vegan) substitute for scrambled eggs.

The whole process should take about a half an hour and serves four to five people. Feel free to change ingredients to satisfy your taste. This meal is quick, easy and yummy! Enjoy!

Step 1: Gather all of your ingredients

When cooking, it is nice to have everything conveniently all on one area, so you’re not running around your kitchen rooting around for ingredients or cooking tools. You'll need:

Food:
Sixteen ounces of firm tofu (180 calories total)
Three cloves of garlic (12 calories total)
one third of a medium red pepper (12 calories total)
one third of a medium yellow pepper (12 calories total)
one third of a medium orange pepper (12 calories total)
half of a medium white onion (22 calories total)
handful of thin baby carrots (20 calories total)
five medium white mushroom caps (20 calories total)
two medium tomatoes (44 calories total)
one tbs of Bragg Liquid Aminos
1 tbs of olive oil (119 calories total)
1/8 cup of nutritional yeast (80 calories total)
1 tsp of kosher salt
2 tbs garlic powder
1 tbs chili powder
1/2 tbs onion powder
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp paprika

(Total calories: about 533. So, if this is serving four people, this dish is about 134 calories per serving.)

Other supplies:
medium skillet
spatula
set of measuring spoons (I eyeball it usually)
sharp knife
cutting board
cheese cloths

Step 2: Press the tofu

The tofu must be drained of as much excess liquid as possible. I like to cut the tofu in half and press it between two clean, folded cheese cloths; this method works pretty well for me.

Thanks for the amazing recipe!!!
I made this for lunch and it was the best!
This meal has made it into the top 5 meals I've had since I've been vegan. (about 3 months now)

Could somebody please feed this to an ovo-vegetarian or meat eater, or lacto-ovo-vegetarian, and ask them if it tastes like real scrambled eggs?

My husband is a carnivore and wasn't fooled, but he liked it anyway :)

Hey, this recipe is fantastic! I am a vegan that is married to a decided carnivore. At first he complained that he didn't like tofu OR bell peppers but he ate three servings and was snacking on it later on so says something! By the way, this recipes is great served in whole grain taco shells! Thanks for the recipe!

This looks really good and I do love tofu scramble. I never would have thought to add the yeast, but love the Bragg! Thanks for sharing. Although, I was waiting for a splash of the beer to be added..... : )

Thank you for this. As a person that can't eat real eggs or meat I'm going to love making this. I was on vacation in San Fresco and found a restaurant ran by a group of Krishna's acrossed from the city hall. The breakfast there was the best in the world and all vegan. We walked there ever morning for breakfast and I have to say it was one of the best eating experiences of my life. And I love how the beer is in ever picture, beer is a great food.

i cant get over the texture of tofu, its just nasty
Were you drunk by the time you finished making it? You have beer in every single picture.
In addition to this being a great looking meal that I'll be sure to try (though likely a lower-carb version), you also inadvertently made me aware that Miller/Coors products are free of isinglass and thus suitable for vegetarians/vegans. Thanks for the doubleplusgood instructable!
