These fluffy tofu scramble are the perfect high protein addition to breakfast or any meal! Quick, easy and just a few ingredients to the fluffiest scramble!


  • 1/2 small onion, diced
  • 1 black firm or extra firm tofu, drained
  • 2 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dry thyme
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce (use coconut aminos or gluten free soy sauce as an alternative)
  • 1 tsp garlic chili sauce or sriracha
  • 1 heaping tbsp tahini
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat up a pan to medium heat. If using a normal pan, add a tsp of oil to prevent sticking or use a nonstick pan to do this oil free.
  2. Add in onion and saute until translucent.
  3. Crumble tofu with hands into the pan, leave some bigger chunks if desired.
  4. Add in soy sauce and all dry spices, herbs, and nutritional yeast and stir to combine.
  5. Allow everything to cook and become fragrant, about 1-2 minutes.
  6. Add in tahini, garlic chili sauce and milk.
  7. Bring eggs to a low simmer while continuously stirring.
  8. Allow tofu to cook and absorb liquid for about 3-5 minutes or until tofu looks fluffy. The tofu should have a slightly runny consistency like normal eggs tend to have when cooking.
  9. Remove from heat and serve tofu as desired.


  • You can leave out the nutritional yeast if desired. Feel free to adjust to flavoring as desired. 
  • The garlic chili sauce and sriracha are not necessary, but I find they help to enhance some of the garlic flavor in these eggs and make them more flavorful.
  • If you don’t have almond milk, you can swap for other plant based milks or even feel free to use water as an alternative.
  • To make appropriately gluten free, make sure to swap out soy sauce for gluten free soy sauce or coconut aminos.
