Tofu breakfast scramble
My Tofu Scramble is where this recipe originated from. The scramble is delicious on its own, so I decided to try it in a burrito. Oh my, they are amazing!
We love to eat the tofu scramble recipe in so many variations. Sometimes it’s served with smoked tempeh bacon, and other times we pile it on toast and eat as an eggless scramble sandwich.

We make these scramble wraps in Food for Life classes, and they are always a huge hit!
Plant-based vegan sausage makes a great addition when serving this for breakfast. It is one of the many products that I like to order from MamaSezz meal delivery service. It comes ready to heat and eat, and it can also be frozen.
This is a great recipe to make your own oil-free tortillas.

Nutrition in Tofu
Tofu or soybean curd is a food of Asian origin. Production of tofu involves soaking soybeans in water and creating soy milk, then curdling the milk using a substance such as calcium sulfate or lemon juice.
The curds are separated from the whey and usually packaged in block form. Most tofu brands offer a range of soft and firm varieties, which differ mainly in the amount of water retained. Pressing tofu can remove additional water.
Unlike most plant-based foods, soy is considered a complete protein, possessing all the essential amino acids. Tofu is thus a good protein source, due both to the amount and nature of the protein it contains.
The protein content is higher in firm types of tofu than in softer types. According to the Illinois Center for Soy Foods (ICSF), a 3-oz. piece of firm tofu has about 13 g of protein, compared with about 4 g in soft tofu. The Vegetarian Resource Group (VRG) puts the content of 4 to 5 oz. of tofu at 11 g.”– LiveStrong
Is tofu healthy?
Some people are not too sure about tofu, because it contains phytoestrogens. Turns out, phytoestrogens are very health promoting and are not at all like our body’s natural estrogen that can cause harm and lead to disease.
This makes so much sense, because the countries that consume the most soy, such as Japan and China, have the lowest rates of cancer and chronic disease. The short video below will explain the benefits of soy.

Vegan Breakfast Burrito
- 1 block tofu pressed & drained, tofu should be firm or extra firm
- 1/2 cup onion diced
- 1/2 cup red bell pepper diced
- 1 handful fresh baby spinach
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 teaspoon nutritional yeast
- 2 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 1 teaspoon Bragg's Amino Worcester sauce that is anchovie free
- veggie broth for sauteing
- Whole grain soft tortillas (Ezekiel makes a good tortilla)
- NOTE: If you freeze the tofu ahead of time and allow to thaw, it has a much firmer texture that is great for crumbling or even for skewering with kabobs.
- Drain water from tofu and gently squeeze water out over a bowl or sink. Crumble tofu into a bowl and set aside.
- In a frying pan, sauté onion and red bell pepper in 3 Tbsp. of veggie broth for about 3 minutes. If you like other veggies such as shredded carrots or mushrooms, they can also be added here.
- Add turmeric, nutritional yeast, Bragg's aminos, and tofu. Sauté for about 3 minutes. If additional liquid is needed, use another 1-3 Tbsp. of veggie broth.
- Add baby spinach, cover pan with lid, and allow leaves to wilt, approximately 2-3 minutes.
- Fill a whole wheat tortilla wrap with few tablespoons of the mixture, fold, and eat.
