Mexican-Style Scrambled Tofu

A quick fix for any time of day, tofu packs the protein for a solution that's vegetarian and versatile. We used seasonings like jalapeño pepper, cumin and smoked paprika to get a bright, deep and punchy Mexican taste profile. Bonus: Unlike scrambled eggs, scrambled tofu reheats well.



  1. Working with your hands, crumble the tofu in a bowl.
  2. In a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, cook the onion, garlic and jalapeño in the oil for 5 minutes. Add the tofu and spices. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until the liquid is evaporated, about 8 minutes.
  3. Top with the tomato and green onions. Garnish with cilantro, sour cream and Tabasco, to taste. Serve with cheese quesadillas.
