Cheesy, scrumptious, and protein packed… this vegan & gluten free tofu scramble is the perfect breakfast or lunch. It’s a weekly staple in our home. It comes together so quickly and tastes incredible. Always hitting the spot.


  • 1 block extra firm or firm tofu
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp paprika (sweet or smoked)
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • Salt & pepper
  • Optional 1/2 tsp umami seasoning
  • 18 ox container baby Bella mushrooms
  • 1 small white onion
  • 2 c packed spinach
  • Desired amount of vegan cheese (1/2-1 c shreds)


  1. Remove the tofu from the package and pat dry with some paper towels (optional)
  2. Using your hands or a fork, crumble the tofu into a bowl
  3. Add the spices and use a spatula or wooden spoon to mix
  4. Chop the onion and wash/slice your mushrooms. Prepare any other veggies you may be adding
  5. Cook the veggies (besides the spinach) in a pan on med/high heat
  6. When they’re just about finished, add the tofu mixture and spinach to the pan
  7. Cook on medium heat until the tofu is heated through and turns yellow in color (from the turmeric). Cook for longer and higher if there’s too much liquid
  8. Add cheese. You can mix it in or leave it on top. Cover so it melts
  9. Enjoy with hot sauce, fresh herbs, scallions, and/or cream cheese for extra creaminess!
