What's for Breakfast?

Even though we no longer eat eggs, there are plenty of scrumptious options for breakfast. Below you will find the tofu scramble recipe our kids enjoy most. We usually serve it with home-made hash browns, and lately we've been making sweet potato hash browns. They are my new favorite side dish. Top it off with some tasty vegan french toast or pancakes, and who said we needed eggs to make a tasty breakfast?

In all our years being vegan, we've tried a lot of tofu scramble recipes. After many attempts to find one we loved best, in the end we developed our own. Without further adieu here is our tofu scramble recipe.

Tofu Scramble
1 Tbsp. Canola Oil
1-2 Tbsp. Water
2 Tbsp. Nutritional Yeast
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1 avocado cubed
1 lb. fresh tofu

Heat oil in the pan on medium heat. Squeeze all excess water from the tofu. Cube the tofu and avocado. Add this to the heated pan. Mix together the remaining ingredients and add to the mixture. Cook until any remaining water is cooked off. The avocado helps add a creamy texture to the scramble that we like a lot. Feel free to add any other veggies or additions you would like.
