I know eggs can be one of the foods you miss after going vegan, but this tofu scramble is a real game changer! The texture is on point and if you add black salt – it will almost taste too much like a real egg.
After adding basic ingredients you can customize it as you prefer – veggies, mushrooms, you name it.
This eggless vegan version is healthier, lower in fat, cholesterol-free, and with lots of protein.
You can serve it for breakfast or brunch over a warm toast, bagel, or with salad or fruits. And it only takes 15-20 minutes to make.

Total Time 15 minutes
Course Breakfast, kid friendly, lunch
Servings 4 servings


  • 200 g firm tofu
  • 1 tsp black salt (you can also use regular salt)
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • pinch of black pepper
  • ¼ cup soy milk
  • ½ tsp garlic
  • 1 tsp oil (optional for cooking)
  • onion or vegetables of your choice optional


  • chop the onion or vegetables of your choice to small pieces
  • use your hands ( or fork ) to crumble the brick of tofu
  • heat a teaspoon of oil in a pan and add the tofu and all the remaining ingredients. ( If you are using veggies, onion or mushrooms, add them first and tofu after 5 minutes )
  • Stir and cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes
  • Add soy milk and cook for another 5 minutes. Taste and add more salt if needed.
  • Serve the tofu scramble over toast topped with fresh parsley. Or if you like some heat I recommend some chili flakes also.


This recipe calls for black salt as also known Kala Namak. You can use regular salt instead but this salt gives that eggy smell and flavor. 
And if you want to cook oil-free, just use some water instead of oil.
