One of the best things about tofu scramble is that you can easily put your own twist onto this breakfast. You can keep the scramble as simple as you want by just seasoning it with salt and pepper. If you like to start your mornings with a bit more flavor, add more spices such as turmeric, curry powder, or cayenne. For extra texture, chop up some potatoes and add salsa for a Southwestern-inspired tofu scramble. If you’re craving carbs, serve it over toast.
