  • 1 15 oz. block firm tofu
  • 1 tbsp. white miso paste
  • 1 tbsp. tahini
  • 1 ½ tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • ¼ tsp. turmeric powder
  • ½ tsp. black Indian salt (Kala Namak) or to taste
  • cup oat milk
  • cup vegan mayo
  • chives and pepper, to garnish


  • Prepare the "egg" sauce by whisking the miso, tahini, nutritional yeast, turmeric, paprika, garlic powder, black Indian salt, and the oat milk together until smooth. Set aside.
  • Drain the tofu and wrap it in a kitchen towel or about 6-7 layers of paper towels. Pressing gently with your hands, remove as much liquid as you can.
  • Break the tofu into large pieces with your hands and place it in a large skillet. Cook it over medium heat, stirring and breaking the tofu into very small pieces until they resemble the texture of scrambled eggs.
  • Once the tofu gets a nice texture and is heated through, reduce the heat to medium-low and add the "egg" mixture to it. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3-5 minutes, or until the tofu reaches the desired consistency (some people like to get a little browning on tofu, while I like to turn the heat off when the liquids are absorbed/evaporated and the tofu is still soft). Taste the tofu, and add more salt if needed.
  • Turn off the heat and add a spoonful of vegan mayo. Stir, and garnish with chives and freshly ground pepper.



Add-ins and Substitutes

  • Add vegetables. These Vegan Scrambled Eggs taste great with sauteed onions, zucchini, tomatoes, or bell pepper.
  • Top with your favorite sauce. Ketchup, homemade Salsa Roja, and hot sauce all make tasty toppings.
  • Substitute other seasonings. You can use cumin, onion powder, oregano, or any others to boost these flavors.
  • Make these "eggs" cheesy. Melting some vegan cheese on top or stirring shredded cheese into Vegan Scrambled Eggs is a delicious addition.

How to Store and Reheat
