Spicy Tofu Scramble with MUSHROOMs

Spicy Tofu Scramble with Mushrooms Overview

Since I decided to become vegan, this Spicy Tofu Scramble with Mushrooms became the ultimate brunch option for me. It’s so incredibly filling, flavorful and quick to make, and unbelievably low in calories! And as a bonus to all that is a sunny colorful cruelty-free dish on a plate that would give a nice start to any day!

This particular recipe is with mushrooms and tomatoes, but since I love variety, I improvise with tofu scramble depending on what’s in my fridge: spinach is perfect along with mushrooms, zucchini and carrot can also do – well, basically any veggie that makes the dish more moist and colorful is a great idea to add.

I love to serve this Spicy Mushroom Tofu Scramble with a warm toast and spread with melting tahini paste on top. Tahini is a great minimally processed food to add to your diet. It has a specific roasted flavor (love it or hate it). If you turn to love it, there are plenty of ways to make use of tahini in the kitchen. From making hummus to using it in sauces and as a spread. As a spread, it is a great alternative to processed commercial plant kinds of butter.

As a finishing touch, a drizzle of sriracha and sprinkle of nutritional yeast takes this dish to a whole new level. And basil! Basil is simply exquisite! Bon appetit!

How to Serve Spicy Tofu Scramble with Mushrooms

This Spicy Mushroom Tofu Scramble is at its best when served warm. Don’t be shy to add more greens and veggies on the side for extra fiber and nutrition. Goes great with fresh chopped green onions or chives on top and extra nutritional yeast as well as a warm crunchy toast on the side.
