  • 14 oz firm tofu
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper (1 TBSP chopped)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1-2 tsp healthy oil (avocado, olive, coconut)
  • 1 TBSP green onion plus extra to garnish
  • 2-3 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  1. Drain and crumble your tofu. Set aside.
  2. Next chop those veggies! I like to finely dice my onion, bell pepper, and jalapeño, then mince the garlic with a garlic press. Chop green onion or snip with a pair of kitchen scissors. Set aside.
  3. Heat a pan or skillet to medium-high heat and sauté onion and peppers until tender, adding garlic towards to the end to prevent burning. Add tofu, green onion, dijon mustard, turmeric, basil, salt and pepper. Use a spatula to mix and crumble while you sauté and scramble everything together. Cook until tofu has soaked up all the delicious flavors and is piping hot.
  4. Serve it up hot and ready with all your favorite breakfast essentials!

Recipe Notes

If this isn't your first rodeo, nutritional yeast can also be added for a parmesan cheese-like kick of flavor. 1-2 TBSP should do great here! 

I love my tofu scramble alongside sea salted tomatoes and oven roasted potatoes with spicy red salsa or hot sauce for dipping! Coffee is pretty essential too!
