  • Cast iron skillet


  • 300 g firm tofu organic, GMO free
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil extra virgin
  • ½ cup oat milk
  • ¼ cup coconut cream
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika powder
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon black salt
  • 2 tablespoons chives finely sliced


  • Start by preparing the tofu scramble seasoning – simply whisk the oat milk and coconut cream together with the nutritional yeast, black salt and spices.
  • Open up your packet of tofu, drain and pat with a paper towel. Transfer to a plate and mash well with a fork.
  • Heat a tablespoon of oil in a cast iron skillet, and finely chop chives while you wait the quick minute it takes to warm up.
  • Add tofu to the skillet, and cook on low to medium heat for a just couple of minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Pour the prepared liquid over the tofu, and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, allowing the liquid to absorb.
  • Remove from the stove top, sprinkle over your chives, serve hot and enjoy.


  • Break the tofu up well as you cook it – the smaller the crumble, the more authentic it looks
  • Keep the temperature low to medium to avoid burning or sticking
  • Take it off the stove while there is still a tiny bit of liquid in the pan – it will absorb into the scramble by the time you plate it up
  • Increase the Dijon mustard to a teaspoon for a richer flavour
  • If you want to add fresh onion and garlic – cook them in the pan before you add the tofu
  • Enjoy your vegan eggs straight away! As amazing as this recipe is, cold tofu is no fun
  • Season with a little extra black salt, to your liking
  • Nutrition panel is an estimate only, and is for 1 serving.
