How to Make Skillet Tofu Scramble

For this tofu recipe, you don’t have to press your tofu, but I like too for about 20–30 minutes! Since we are adding in a splash of almond milk, just a light press is all you need.

First, press your tofu lightly to remove excess liquid. Place tofu in skillet and using a spatula break it into small pieces. Add your nutritional yeast, turmeric, onion powder, garlic powder and black salt. Last, add your almond milk and stir for about 5-7 minutes to scramble and combine.

Last add your fresh spinach, stir until spinach is just wilted.

This is such a simple vegan breakfast ideas! Perfect for a busy holiday morning or a lazy weekend brunch.
