A tofu scramble with spinach is nutritious and a perfect protein boost for breakfast for vegetarians and vegans. I love spinach, so eating it for breakfast in a classic tofu scramble vegan dish is only natural.

One reviewer suggested adding extra soy sauce into the mix to make this spinach and tofu scramble a bit more flavorful. Or, omit it the soy sauce altogether (or use Bragg's Liquid Aminos or tamari soy sauce) to make it gluten-free as well.

This recipe makes two servings, so it is perfect for breakfast for a couple. You can simply cut the portions in half to make a single serving.

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bunch spinach, rinsed
  • 1 pound firm or extra-firm tofu, well pressed and crumbled
  • 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

How to Make It

  1. Sautee the tomatoes, garlic, and mushrooms in olive oil for 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the spinach, crumbled tofu, soy sauce and lemon juice. Cover and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Sprinkle with a dash of salt and pepper before serving.

You can serve the scramble along with toast, biscuits, or other breakfast items. But you can also make it into a breakfast wrap to take along or eat on the go.

The scramble warms up well if you want to save a portion for the next day.
