If you’ve been vegan for a while I’m sure that you’ve heard of tofu scramble. And if you’re new to veganism and just hearing about tofu scramble, you’re welcome. I joke, I joke, but seriously, tofu scramble is one of my favorite recipes. It is so easy to throw together any time of the day and you can customize it in so many ways.
I usually keep it pretty simple with just vegetables or maybe some beans, but I wanted to change things up. When I first went vegan I tried soyrizo and I hated it. I don’t know if I just didn’t have the taste for it or the formulas got better, but now I love it. I think it’s just so good.
I love to pick mine up at Trader Joes. It’s affordable and really delicious. I came up with this recipe when I had a pack of soyrizo that I needed to use up and wanted to do something clever with it. I also think that you could take this recipe to the next level by using it as the filling for chilaquiles. Maybe I’ll put out a part two. Yum!
I loved this addition to my typical tofu scramble. It added some smoky, spicy flavor that is just so good. I recommend serving this with some corn tortillas, avocado slices and salsa. Next level right there. I also wanted to say that you’ll notice this recipe doesn’t use black salt. I think it’s a cool ingredient to add some egg-y flavor, but I just don’t like it. It makes me very gassy too. 🤢No thanks.
Without further ado, here’s the recipe! Please tag me on Instagram if you make any of my recipes, I love to see your creations!
