Morning Scramble Recipe

6 Servings 20 minutes, includes cooking time

Sunday mornings I want to read the paper, listen to the radio and have a colorful breakfast. This quick and versatile dish can take any spices or veggies you like. Tofu is not cooked to make it safe for eating, just to equal the temperature of the vegetables. Use whatever vegetables you like – zucchini, Swiss chard, yellow squash, etc. This is a good way for me to use up the small bits of vegetables from the week.

Serve with heated tortillas. AND hot sauce!


14-16 oz FIRM tofu
1 Tbsp tamari
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp turmeric
½ cup chopped onion
½ tsp maple syrup
½ C sliced mushrooms
3 C chopped collard greens


  1. Heat a skillet to medium. Sear onions and mushrooms for 2-3 minutes.
  1. Add tofu and cook for 1 minute, stirring the vegetables into the tofu.
  2. Add the collards and mix in for about 15-20 seconds. Put a lid on the mixture, turn down the heat and let the collards steam for 1 minute. The collards should be slightly wilted and bright green.
  3. Serve with hot sauce and tortillas, optional.

Note: Tofu preparation:  Slice open the tofu container and let the water drain out. With a potato masher, mash tofu in medium bowl. Add spices, maple syrup and liquid aminos. Mix until well blended. Store leftovers in 1 cup glass containers for breakfast throughout the week.

Variations: Use Italian herbs with a bit more tomato; make it more Central American with sofrito and cilantro

Abbreviations: C = cup; oz = ounce; Tbsp = tablespoon; tsp = teaspoon
