Tofu Scramble w/ Quinoa, Zucchini and Mushrooms!

Tofu Scramble w/ Quinoa, Zucchini and Mushrooms!

One of my newfound breakkie loves, is the Tofu Scramble.
It is so easy to make and soaks up any flavours you can think of, in your foggy morning saunter to the fridge. 😉

Today’s take on tofu scramble was somewhat frittata-like by adding quinoa and a tasty medley of veg. Mushrooms, for me, can add a meaty flavour and texture – something that I was all to familiar with just a few months ago. Incredible how things can change!

One of my favourite ingredients to add to a ‘scramble’ is turmeric – the aromatics, colour and flavour work so well to make this egg-like and delectable! Not to mention the wonderful health benefits of turmeric, which is anti-inflammatory, is said to inhibit cancer cell growth, improve liver function and lowers cholesterol levels. So much PUNCH packed into a totally unassuming spice. Thanks Mother Nature! 🙂

Here’s what you need:
* 1/4 cup firm organic tofu, crumbled with your fingers
* 1/4 red onion, chopped finely
* 1 clove of garlic, grated or chopped
* 1 tbsp. grapeseed oil – I used grapeseed because it doesn’t add flavour and has a high smoking point, meaning it wont break down at high temperatures
* 1 inch piece zucchini – grated
* 1 button mushroom chopped
* 1/4 cup cooked quinoa
* salt, pepper, paprika, turmeric, nutmeg, and chopped fresh parsley – you can add or omit any herbs or spice here!

HOW TO:
** In a frying pan on med heat, add oil, onions, garlic, salt and pepper and let sauté for 2-3 minutes.
** Next, add mushrooms and zucchini until all is cooked through, approx. 5 minutes.
** Add crumbed tofu, quinoa and spices.
** Heat through until at desired temp for steamy and healthy Tofu Scramble! WOO! Drooling yet?

I like to add the fresh herbs at the end so they do not discolour or loose nutrients or flavour. It really makes for great presentation when you add something green and fresh on top of a yummy creation.

I also added a few extra touches:
* A tomato and some cilantro and lemon Hot Sauce – YUM!!

I’ve now had my tea and breakfast and am READY FOR THE DAY!

BRING IT!

Peace, love and Breakfast yums 🙂

    • Thank you!
      It is my go-to at the moment – super easy and delicious! Plus, you can always put random veggies into it, so it kinda just works, no matter what!
      Thanks for checking it out 🙂 xo

  1. I’ve got three blocks of tofu in the fridge as it was on special offer and guess what I was planning to do for breakfast tomorrow! I love scrambled tofu and always add lots of yummy things such as spring onions, peppers and mushrooms as well.
    I’ve never thought of adding quinoa but it sounds good 🙂
