Mushroom Tofu Scramble


Have I told you lately how much I love tofu? I really, really do! I’d incorporate tofu in every meal if I could, but then I’m afraid I would tire it out and no longer crave it–so I indulge in moderation… Kind of! I love preparing tofu scramble in the beginning of the week and simply reheating portions throughout the week for breakfast, or lunch. I recently shared my simple tofu scramble recipe. This one is also easy and quick to prepare, it’s just jazzed up a bit with mushrooms!

I think the reason I love tofu scramble so much is because there are endless variations. Have extra bell pepper? Throw it in! Extra roasted sweet potato cubes? Toss em in too! Don’t even get me started on the toppings–sliced avocado, salsa, red pepper flakes, hot sauce…!

I also enjoy how you don’t have to follow any super strict recipe for your tofu scramble to turn out delicious. Low on oil? Simply omit. Mix spices in the skillet directly or create a sauce beforehand by mixing with water.

What do you toss into your tofu scramble?! Let me know in the comments below.
