I have been making vegan scrambled 'eggs' for some time now, and have been meaning to put up the recipe, but was waiting to create something that would make people to try them. Tofu, when broken up and flavored appropriately tastes remarkably like scrambled eggs. The texture is nearly bang on, and you can flavor them in a whole bunch of different ways. The recipe below is my favorite way to eat them, and couldn't be easier to whip together for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The scramble is topped with salsa, which is then topped with this creamy vegan hollandiase sauce which is, in my opinion, better than the real thing!
1 block of tofu, frozen, de-thawed, drained of excess water, then crumbled with your fingers
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cumin (optional)
1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1/2 tsp dried Italian herbs
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 can beans (your favorite), drained and rinsed
1/2 cup corn kernels (optional)
Hollandaise Sauce (adapted from Being Vegan):
1/4 cup vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)
1/2-1 tbsp thickener (flour, or arrowroot powder work great)
3/4 cup milk alternative (I use almond)
2 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
pinch of turmeric
pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
1/8 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp veganaise (or mayonnaise alternative)
4 pieces (or more) of toast
1 cup salsa
1) For the tofu, mix everything together in a large bowl (aside from the salsa). Allow to sit for about 30 minutes so that the flavors can come together.
2) For the sauce, whisk the butter and flour together in a small pot over medium heat until the butter melts, and a paste is made. Add all of the other ingredients (aside form the mayonnaise), whisking to combine. Allow to come to a boil, whisking continually until it has thickened. Remove form the heat, and whisk in the mayonnaise.
3) In a pan, heat a small amount of oil. Fry the tofu scramble for about 5 minutes, rotating with a spatula, until it has browned slightly.
4) To assemble, place a generous amount of the tofu mixture on to a piece of toast, followed by some salsa. Spoon the hollandaise sauce on top of this, and enjoy!
