Tofu scrambles up just like eggs, and with some clever spices, even non-vegans will barely notice the difference. Try setting out toppings to let family or guests assemble their own burrito bowls.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil. Break tofu apart over skillet into bite-size pieces, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then cook, stirring frequently with a thin metal spatula, until liquid cooks out and tofu browns, about 10 minutes. (If you notice liquid collecting in pan, increase heat to evaporate water.) Be sure to get under the tofu when you stir, scraping the bottom of the pan where the good, crispy stuff is and keeping it from sticking.

  • Add onion and garlic powders, turmeric, juice, and remaining tablespoon oil and toss to coat. Cook 5 minutes more.

  • Preheat a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Add oil. Cook onion and jalapenos with a pinch of salt, stirring, until translucent, about 5 minutes, Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add tomatoes, cumin, and remaining salt, and cook, stirring, until tomatoes become saucy, about 5 minutes. Add cilantro and lemon juice. Let cilantro wilt in. Add beans and heat through, stirring occasionally, about 2 minutes. Taste for salt and seasoning.

  • Spoon some hash browns into each bowl, followed by a scoop of beans and a scoop of scramble. Top with avocado, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, and a sprinkle of cilantro. Serve with hot sauce.

I made the scramble part and it was very delicious! I added mushrooms, tomatoes, onion and cilantro and put it on garbanzo beans I had made previously. The hub said it was fantastic! If I had really read the instructions b4 making it I would've cooked the garbanzo beans according to the recipe and it would've been even more tasty. A tip for cooking with tofu is extra firm cut through the middle so you have two flat thin pieces salting and peppering and leaving it cut side down in a colander to strain while u prep everything else. This will cut down on the cook time as well as a lot of the moisture will drain off before you even cook it. This is what I do whenever I want a firmer tofu. You can also put something on top to weigh it down. Read More

I am obsessed with this recipe! I make a big batch of this on Sunday and pack it in individual containers to have for breakfast all week long. It is amazing made just as listed but I have tweaked it to suit my own needs. I use shredded sweet potato hash browns instead of the potato and I omit the tomatoes and add chopped zucchini and mushrooms. I sometimes add chopped red bell pepper as well. The spices really make this dish. Thanks so much for sharing! Read More

I am new to being a vegetarian and have been looking for something to replacing my morning eggs. I think I found it! I didn't do the potatoes but I did everything else and it was delicious! I will definitely be making often! Read More

I never like tofu particularly but our daughter is vegan. I've made this several times now for my husband and daughter and me and it is superb. The tofu turmeric looks just like scrambled eggs. The only change I made is to sub in pinto beans for the black beans as a matter of preference. Thank you for such an amazing recipe! Read More

This was absolutely delicious. Took a bit longer than 10 minutes to brown the tofu and I used medium firm tofu because it s all I had. I was sure to squeeze out all the juice first. Very very good. Try a side of sour cream! Read More

One cup of onion was too much cut this way down. Read More

Loved it! A bit time consuming to make but worth it. A little spicy for my 4 year old which could easily be remedied by scaling back the pepper. Read More

First time cooking tofu. It does have the same texture as scrambled eggs. This dish is heavy on protein so try not to eat too much. I didn't have cilantro but most of this just felt like bulky food in a bowl. I'd make it again but definitely recommend the hot sauce. Does need a bit more flavor in there or just heavier seasoning.
