A tofu scramble is always a wonderful meal to serve for breakfast or brunch! There are many vegan versions of tofu scrambles now that if you are a scrambled egg lover (like I used to be), you now have many very tasty, cruelty-free options in which to choose to placate your taste buds. Try this gluten-free version for breakfast. This will feed two to four people. Serve with vegan pancakes or vegan waffles.

Spanish Vegan Tofu Scramble

One of my favorite foods that I learned to make myself in my early twenties was scrambled eggs. I loved to eat them with all kinds of ingredients including vegetables. As a vegan now, I had to create a version of the former scrambled eggs that I so loved, so I have fashioned an easy tofu scramble that is healthier, delicious and cruelty-free! Here is my recipe for tofu scramble with a Spanish flare.

Ingredients:

1 lb. extra firm tofu

1 medium orange pepper

1 medium red pepper

1 small onion

6-8 large black olives, sliced

2 Tbs. spaghetti sauce (left-over sauce is great for this recipe)

1 Tbs. ketchup

1 Tbs. tamari

1 Tbs. nutritional yeast (optional)

Salt and pepper to taste

Water

Process:

Prepare ingredients that need to be chopped or sliced.

Remove tofu from package and cut into bite-sized pieces. Place into a large bowl. Add ketchup, tamari, spaghetti and nutritional yeast and smash until tofu looks like brains. Set aside.

In a large skillet, in a small amount of water, cook onions and peppers for about 10 min or until done. Add tofu mix and sliced olives. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, stirring and mixing everything together. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with hash browns or vegan pancakes.

Enjoy!
