Tofu Scramble For Easy Vegan Meals With Simple Ingredients

Scrambled tofu is a very popular vegan alternative to scrambled eggs, and just as customizable and easy to make, too. Crumble up extra firm, firm, or silken tofu (your choice!), and then, sauté it in a pan with your choice of seasonings and veggies. Try curried tofu scramble, spinach, and tomato tofu scramble, or mushrooms and onions tofu scramble. The options for this vegan breakfast idea are endless!

A tofu scramble can be used to replace scrambled eggs in the vegan diet. This balanced breakfast provides nutrients such as protein, calcium, and B vitamins. Start by draining a package of extra-firm tofu. Wrap the tofu in a clean dish towel and press it to remove excess water. Crumble the tofu in your hands and place it in a non-stick skillet with 1 tbsp. olive oil.

Add fresh vegetables such as diced tomatoes, onions, bell pepper, and hot peppers. Flavor the tofu with any combination of turmeric, cumin, chili powder, thyme, basil, and oregano. Fry the tofu mixture over medium heat for eight to 10 minutes, stirring frequently with a spatula. Serve with vegan muffins or fresh fruit.

Vegan French Toast For An Easy Breakfast For The Whole Family

French toast is surprisingly easy to make vegan at breakfast time. Instead of using cow’s milk, eggs, and butter, substitute soy (or rice or almond) milk and vegan butter instead. You can add all of the other already vegan French toast ingredients like cinnamon and vanilla. You can also blend the soy (or otherwise, vegan) milk, cinnamon, and vanilla, with tofu, flour, or bananas to make a thicker mixture, as there would be with eggs. Try tasty fruit toppings like fresh bananas, or apples and raisins for added nutrients and sweetness to these easy recipes.

You can also choose easy already vegan sides to accompany any of these vegan breakfast ideas, such as homemade hash browns or breakfast potatoes (with peppers and onions, if you’d like), fresh fruit, or granola.


Crepes Are Healthy Vegan Breakfast Options

Crepes are breakfast items that feature thin, light shells containing fruits or vegetables. Mix 2 cups whole-wheat flour with 2 tbsp melted vegan margarine, 1/2 cup soymilk, and 1/2 tsp. salt, advises Jannequin Bennett, author of “Very Vegetarian.” Add 2 tbsp. agave nectar and 1/2 tsp. baking powder. Mix in a bowl. Place 1/2 tbsp. olive oil in a non-stick skillet and heat over low-medium heat.

Pour in enough batter to cover the bottom of the skillet. Heat for two to three minutes, then turn with a spatula. Cook for an additional two minutes and transfer to a plate. Fill half of the crepe shell with fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, or peaches. You can also fill the shells with cooked vegetables such as asparagus or spinach, and add cooked, mashed tofu to create a filling breakfast. Fold over the other half of the crepe shell and serve.


Vegan breakfast ideas – Flax Smoothies For The Most Important Meal Of The Day

Flax smoothies are highly portable, making them an attractive choice for vegans who need breakfast on the go. These smoothies also provide protein, omega-3 fatty acids, boron, and calcium. Add 2 tbsp. flax meal to a blender. Add 1 cup of frozen banana pieces, blueberries, strawberries, or other fruits. Pour 2 cups of soy milk or you can use coconut milk into the blender. Blend for one minute or until smooth. Transfer to a glass or portable beverage container.
