Biscuits & Tofu Scramble


My favorite brunch place has been letting me down lately, so I decided to try cooking up a little something at home. This was my first attempt at tofu scramble. It was delicious. No, it was really, really good. Better than what I get at that restaurant, and not just because I didn’t have to eat it cold.* The spices were perfect. The texture was perfect. Yum, yum, yum. Another wonderful dish thanks to Vegan Brunch.

It’s simpler than I thought it would be. You start off by heating some oil and garlic, then crumbling in your tofu and cooking it for a while. Make your spice mixture separately: cumin, turmeric, salt, thyme, and combine with water. Then add the spices and some nutritional yeast to the tofu and cook another few minutes. Voila! It would be really easy to incorporate other ingredients as well. I’m thinking onion, peppers, tomato…

The biscuits were ordinary drop biscuits, with soymilk substituted. I guess I should also start looking for my favorite biscuit recipe now, because I think I’m going to start making my own Sunday brunch from now on.

Update: this is even good cold. I might have had a few bites of leftovers right out of the fridge.


  1. Tofu scramble is the best food on the planet. Looking back, I can't believe I used to think scrambled eggs were good. Tofu scramble is way better.

  3. I like to take my tofu scramble and make a breakfast burrito. Whole wheat wrap + guac + tofu scramble = heaven.
