So let’s talk about vegan food for a second. First, let me start off by saying that you don’t have to be vegan to enjoy plant based food. Just because it’s vegan, doesn’t mean that it’s not delicious. In fact, often it’s more nourishing and welcoming for your body. So, I welcome vegan foods with my whole heart. I love enjoying plant based veggies, fruits and switching up what I’m eating.
After all, the whole point of this blog is to be ambitious. In life. In the kitchen. In everything and anything. So today, I’m introducing you to a new breakfast food you need to try: Scrambled Tofu!
Don’t be frightened. Tofu can taste like anything you want with spices and herbs. And this tofu scramble really does taste like your favorite soft and fluffy scrambled eggs. The recipe is made with Nasoya Tofu’s extra firm tofu, which just so happens to be perfect for the scramble — it’s firm enough yet still fluffy to make the scramble similar in texture to the real deal.
If you’re new to tofu, this is a great introductory recipe to try, especially because it provides over 9g of plant based protein per serving and is incredibly easy to make.
How to meal prep it:
And guess what? The tofu scramble can be made ahead of time for easy meal prep. I love portioning them into individual containers and laying the corn tortillas on top. Once ready to eat, I heat up the scramble, place in corn tortillas and add my favorite toppings. Easy and inexpensive.
I hope you love these breakfast tacos! xo.
