Looking for a simple and special weekend breakfast idea, but something a little more exciting than avocado toast? Try our delicious plant-based take on scrambled eggs, using scrambled tofu! 

We use a mix of both silken and firm tofu to nail that creamy eggy texture, all seasoned to perfection on top of a lovely toasted slice of bread. It’s a great healthy option too, with good fats from the avocado and a fantastic source of protein from the tofu...what’s not to love?

Before you start

Frying pan | Powerful blender

**Prep the tofu scramble ingredients **

  • Peel and grate or crush the garlic
  • Finely slice the spring onion
  • Drain and blitz the silken tofu in a blender until smooth

**Make the tofu scramble **

  • Melt the plant-based butter in a frying pan over low-medium heat, stirring frequently
  • Keeping everything at a gentle bubbling heat, add the sliced spring onion and stir to infuse into the butter for 1 minute
  • Add the garlic and stir through for 1 minute
  • Add the turmeric and stir through to colour all the veg
  • Add the black salt and stir through
  • Add the blended silken tofu and fold through the pan until everything is yellow
  • Lower the pan heat and continue to cook until starting to firm up, stirring occasionally

**Prepare the toast toppings **

  • Slice, toast and butter the bread
  • Peel and thinly slice the avocado
  • Halve the cherry tomatoes (if using)

**Finish the tofu scramble **

  • Drain the firm tofu, then tear and crumble bite-size pieces into the pan, with a mix of sizes for texture
  • Add the black pepper and stir through
  • Gently fold the tofu through the pan, trying to avoid breaking up the firm tofu too much
  • Taste and season to taste with more pepper if necessary


Plate up

  • Load up the bread slices with the tofu scramble and avocado slices
  • Squeeze over some lemon over avocado, and sprinkle over the remaining garnishes to decorate
