Tofu Scramble

Tofu Scramble

This is a great alternative if you are intolerant to eggs or choose not to eat eggs for any other reason. Tofu is also a fantastic source of calcium.

Ingredients, serves 2

2 teaspoons olive oil

225g natural tofu

2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (with added B12 if possible)

½ teaspoon turmeric

½ teaspoon sweet paprika

¼ teaspoon black lava salt (such as kala namak which has a slight sulphurous taste)

½ teaspoon garlic powder

50-100ml vegetable stock

Chopped coriander or parsley to garnish

80-100g vegetables of choice – I used kale and plum vine tomatoes


Carbohydrate option: ½ slice sourdough, two oat cakes.



  1. Measure the spices and nutritional yeast into a bowl.
  2. Mash the tofu gently with a fork.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, add the tofu and stir until warmed through.
  4. Add the spices and stir through thoroughly.
  5. Add some vegetable stock to make it moist.
  6. Garnish with chopped coriander or parsley
  7. Serve with extra kale, charred plum tomatoes. Add some carbs if you feel you need them.
