Mediterranean Tofu Scramble



I think when changing to more plant based eating, Tofu Scramble is probably one of the first things that people try and make. Most likely as it's a replacement for Eggs, which a lot of people find very difficult to let go of - including me.

So like most, I tried this a long time ago, and after making my husband a normal omelette this morning, it occurred to me that's it's been a long time, and there are probably many other people that are looking for alternatives to eggs. So I thought I'd remake it using some of my favourite flavours.

I used frozen firm tofu, that I'd thawed out. It gives it a more spongey substantial texture. But if you like yours more creamy then just crumble some normal tofu.

I wanted a mediterranean flavour, so I added chopped red capsicum, onion, olives, mushrooms, spinach, and some dried oregano.

But the thing that adds an 'egg' flavour to all good tofu scrambles is Kala Namak Salt or black salt as it's sometimes known - even though it's pink in colour. I buy mine off iHerb.com. It smells like a rotten egg stink bomb, but gives the most realistic egg flavour to any dishes that require an egg taste. Genius - a must try! It's great for vegan quiches or frittatas, or my vegan carbonara dishes.


I had my scramble with a side of avocado on grainy toast and sprinkled over some chili flakes, and chopped fresh chives.

The perfect nutritious and filling start to a Sunday, and a great savoury alternative to pancakes. Change up the spices to suit your own tastes.

I hope you give it a try
