Breakfast Tofu is one of many easy, healthy, whole food, plant-based recipes from The No Meat Athlete Cookbook. It's gluten-free, oil-free, and vegan.

Breakfast Tofu

This breakfast tofu is a mobile version of a tofu scramble, which—while delicious—doesn’t travel well and requires stovetop supervision. Wrap a couple of slices of this tofu in a brown rice tortilla, or sandwich it between two slices of sprouted grain bread with loads of arugula, avocado, and even a few leftover cold roasted root veggies. If you make a big batch on the weekend, you can have your weekday breakfasts prepped and ready to go in three minutes flat. Although we prefer to serve this tofu at room temperature or cold from the fridge (it firms up as it cools), it can be eaten right away, too.

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Slice each package of tofu into six pieces. Pat dry. Drizzle evenly with the tamari.
  • Combine the nutritional yeast, cumin, garlic powder, turmeric, curry powder, and black pepper in a large rectangular food storage container with a tight-fitting lid. Place the sliced tofu in the container and shake gently until all slices are covered. (You might need to open the container and rotate the slices a bit.) Let sit while the oven preheats. (The marinated tofu can be refrigerated for up to 1 day.)
  • Place tofu on the baking sheet. Spread any extra seasoning mix on top. Bake for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  • Serve at room temperature or cold from the fridge.

I used the EZ Tofu Press to squeeze out the excess liquid from the tofu before following this recipe.
