Breakfast Tofu Scramble

  • Yield 2 servings

The turmeric or achiote powder naturally colors the tofu yellow and make it look like scrambled eggs.

This is a wonderful way to start the morning if you wrap the warm tofu mixture into corn tortillas. Serve with salsa.


2 teaspoons olive oil
1 small jalpeno, seeded and minced or 1 teaspoon chipotle chiles in adobo, minced*
4 scallions, minced
1 pound firm tofu, drained and crumbled into small pieces
1/2 teaspoon turmeric or achiote powder
1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese or soy cheese
2 teaspoons soy sauce or tamari


  1. Heat oil over medium heat in a nonstick saute pan or skillet. Add jalapenos and scallions and saute 1 minute. Add tofu, turmeric and continue to saute 1 minute. Add cheese and soy sauce and stir for a few seconds.
*Chipotle chilies in adobo can be found in most grocery stores in the ethnic section and in specialty food stores. They are smoked, dried jalapenos packed in a thick tomato-based sauce. They have a smoky, spicy flavor.
