Cauliflower Tofu Scramble Recipe:

This cauliflower tofu scramble is a wonderful way to start the day. It’s really versatile, and great as a savory-filled tortilla, or over baked (or mashed) potatoes. This makes a large, nutrient-rich batch, so customize to your heart’s content. Make this with any vegetables you like…zucchini, summer squash, celery, broccoli, cabbage, mushrooms, tomatoes, etc. I promise, this will come in handy day after day, for a great savory breakfast, lunch, or dinner, throughout the week.


serves 6 to 8

1 large onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 jalapeño, minced
1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
1 package extra firm tofu, crumbled
2 tablespoons Scrambler Seasoning Mix* (recipe below)
sprinkle of extra curry (or hot curry), to taste
sprinkle of hot sauce, to taste
kosher salt, to taste
coarsely ground black pepper, to taste

garnish: fresh cilantro (optional)


Heat a large nonstick sauté pan over high heat. Add onions and dry sauté until translucent. Sprinkle a little bit of water as needed to prevent sticking to the pan. Add bell pepper and jalapeño, and continue to sauté briefly. Add cauliflower, crumbled tofu, and 2 tablespoons of the Scrambler Seasoning Mix. Continue cooking over medium high heat for several minutes, stirring occasionally until cauliflower is tender and tofu begins to turn golden brown.

Season with an extra curry, hot sauce, and salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat.

Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve hot, with sprouted whole grain Ezekiel English Muffins or tortillas.

              1. Ummm
                I don’t know if we can count chick peas in the list
                Then, moong daal badi( I don’t know how to explain that in English), it’s basically made of mung beans.
                And then matar paneer or loki k kofte (made of bottle gourd)

                    1. Yeah but I used to eat matar paneer before and I loved that too. I absolutely love rajma especially with chawal. So delicious.

      1. The wonderful thing I discovered about Tofu is that you can make it into whatever you want it to be. It is all a matter of the spices one uses. I loved it in my stir-fry veggies. Cheers, Lancer

  1. Wow, it sounds delicious. What is nutritional yeast flakes? They do sound very tasty. Maybe my dish needs those flaky yeast to be more tasty. And tofu really needs strong sauces like curry to make it more palatable. and it is a wonderful combination to mix tofu with curry…

    1. Thanks so much. Nutritional yeast is delicious and tastes like cheese. It’s also very healthy. I would definitely recommend trying it. Yes, tofu goes well with curry spices. It’s very bland on its own so strong sauces taste good with it.

  2. I’ve just been thinking what am I gonna do with the tofu I bought that no one wanted to eat… this could be good for breakfast but I might need to find a dinner menu for tomorrow. This looks great though, thanks Pooja!! 💞

    1. Yeah this would be great for breakfast especially with some toast! How about pasta for dinner? I’ve been craving it so it’s all I’m thinking of lol 😂

  3. This sounds good, and I am not even a vegan. Lately, I have been thinking about trying something new instead of the same thing. I have never had tofu, but I have heard a lot about it. It may be something I would like to try in the future. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week.

    1. Yes, you should definitely try tofu it’s so delicious. However it’s a bit bland so use a strongly flavoured sauce for it. This one is perfect since the other flavours are strong.
