Tofu Scramble Breakfast Taco

One of the most baffeling things to master, for me, was the tofu scramble. I could make it look like eggs, but it always tasted like plain tofu. Until I finally went on Amazon and ordered the secret ingredient- black salt. This salt has a sulfur egg smell and taste. It makes the tofu indistinguishable from scrambled eggs, which is important if you feed picky toddlers who are used to real eggs!

Breakfast Scramble


  • 1/4 block extra firm tofu, pressed lightly
  • Vegan butter (We love miyokos cultured vegan butter or Earth balance buttery sticks)
  • Turmeric
  • Black salt
  • Garlic powder

For taco:

  • Tortilla
  • Sliced avocado
  • Hot sauce


Melt a pad of vegan butter in pan on medium high. Crumble the block of tofu into pan. Add a pinch of turmeric powder, garlic powder, and about 3 pinches black salt, to taste. Stir, and heat through. That’s it! You’ve got scrambled tofu!

To assemble taco, begin with tortilla. Add tofu, hot sauce, and avocado. Enjoy!
