Build Your Own Tofu Scramble: what ingredients will you add to your protein-rich breakfast? The possibilities are endless!
You’ve probably seen omelet bars at fancy brunches where you select your ingredients and the chef makes you a custom dish.
So I thought, why not do the same thing at home with a tofu scramble?
The base ingredients are the same, but you can choose your vegetables and toppings and make it your own!
Personally, my favorite scramble ingredients are mushrooms and spinach. But you may like tomatoes and olives. No problem! The method for making this breakfast is the same.
Here are some ideas for what you can add to your scramble:
And the list goes on and on!
For this recipe, I used garlic, onions, mushrooms, spinach, and avocado. What ingredients will you choose?

Build Your Own Tofu Scramble
- Olive oil for sautéing
- 1/2 onion chopped
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1 cup white or brown mushrooms sliced
- 1 cup spinach leaves roughly chopped, or baby spinach leaves
- 1 pound extra-firm tofu (drained and squeezed to remove excess liquid)
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
- A few pinches Kala Namak (optional)
- Salt and pepper (to taste)
In a large skillet, saute the onion and garlic in a little olive oil over medium heat. (Or use water or vegetable broth instead of oil.)
Once the onions are translucent, add the mushrooms and spinach. Saute until the mushrooms are soft and the spinach is wilted.
Crumble the tofu over the vegetables and add the turmeric, nutritional yeast, and Kala Namak (if using), and salt and pepper. Stir well to combine. Cook until the tofu is heated through.
Enjoy topped with sliced avocado, green onion, ketchup, or hot sauce.
