Substituting eggs can be tricky. There isn’t one egg substitute that will universally work in all recipes. When it comes to scrambled eggs, tofu is the perfect choice.This recipe is super easy to whip up quickly in the morning using just a few ingredients. I typically have all these items on hand anyway. I made this scrambled dish as part of my valentine’s day meal and I am just now getting around to posting the recipe I used. I know. Shame. But it’s delicious so it is totally worth the wait. I hope to get that berry quinoa posted here soon. I love quinoa for breakfast – such a super food! But back to the tofu!

  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast

Slice the tofu into approximately one inch cubes. Then, using either your hands or a fork, crumble it slightly.
