The Best Tofu Scramble

Its been a very exciting week this week (in this still very new blogging world), firstly I’ve started to contribute to an amazing raw food blog Raw Kiwi, secondly I received a massive box full of coconut goodies from The Coconut Merchant which I can’t wait to try and start creating some new recipes with and I’m also very much looking forward to my first workshop next week! Very exciting!

So back to the food! Have you tried scrambled tofu before? I think my tofu scramble could give scrambled eggs a run for its money its money any day. It’s rich and creamy and the turmeric gives it a gorgeous golden colour. Perfect with sourdough or rye toast, flatbreads or roasted veggies.
And it’s packed full of healthy ingredients; tofu for plantbased protein, kake, spinach, garlic and turmeric.

Just a note on tofu, I’m still experimenting to try and find the best varieties and brands for different recipes. The one I used here was an organic silken tofu by Clearspring and it worked so well for my tofu scramble delivering a rich and creamy scramble.


I'd love to know if you made this recipe.

    The recipe says that you cut the tofu into cubes, but how do you get it how it is in the photo? Do you scramble/whisk it like eggs? Thank you! Can’t wait to try it x x

      Hi Chloe
      The tofu is quite soft so it scrabbles in the pan.
      Best wishes
