Southwest Tofu Scramble

Do you love tofu scramble? You should.  And if you don’t, I know you will now!

Sometimes recipes for tofu scramble can be complicated by tons of spices that you might not have on hand.  I simplify that problem by using taco seasoning!

This is my go-to tofu scramble because it is super filling, easy to put together and it makes awesome breakfast burritos too! I teach this recipe in all of my tofu classes and in all of my continuing education classes because this needs to be in your life.  And that’s why I’m sharing  it here too!

It’s Easy!

It’s Super Yummy!

It’s Healthy!

It’s alway a crowd-pleaser.

It’s colorful.

And it’s also great for dinner. ๐Ÿ™‚

Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet over medium- high heat, add onion and pepper and cook 5-7 minutes, until slightly softened. Add garlic and spices, stir to coat everything with the spices, cook one minute more.

Add tofu folding everything together to get that beautiful color on the tofu. Add water and nutritional yeast and reduce heat to medium, cook about 5-7 minutes. Add beans. Cook until beans are heated through. Fold in tomatoes and add salt and pepper to taste.
