Tasty Tofu Scramble Breakfast Burrito
Updated: Aug 14
Welcome my little cumin seeds to a incredibly delicious tofu recipe you'll be sure to use time and time again. Scrambled tofu is undoubtably a delicious way to prepare tofu. Poor tofu seems to get a bad wrap, lol (wrap as in we wrap this tofu in a burrito).. but do your research I see no reason why organic, non gmo tofu cannot be enjoyed in moderation.
I used to be someone who ate eggs every morning. I grew up like many of you eating eggs and bacon, a real American staple. It wasn't until a first hand experience seeing where and who my eggs and bacon came from that gave me pause to stop eating eggs and bacon. I embrace now egg alternatives and feel there is no loss at all in flavor or in my health. Plus a benefit is no little piggies or eggies were harmed in the making.
A great alternative I hope you do try. Say a little prayer and enjoy!
Note: This recipe can have so many variations, add a tempeh bacon or soy chorizo in the burrito for some variety. You can always switch it up with corn tortillas for breakfast tacos instead, or use this recipe to make a super quick whip up for a scrambled tofu, perfect with toast and salsa. Overall a great one to start on if you normally enjoy eggs in the morning or are just a burrito fan like myself. Have fun with this one.
