Scrambled Tofu Pantry Mix & Vegan Breakfast Burritos

Vegan Breakfast Burrito
I have a sweet tooth, and I'm American. So, when I wake up in the morning, I think of something sweet. But, I know many people who would much rather have a savory breakfast. This post is for them! (I eat this dish for dinner : )

When I first began experimenting with Vegetarianism, I used to buy a boxed mix of Tofu Scramble Seasoning. I tasted delicious, but it pretty well doubled the price of the tofu I was eating. Then, one day I encountered a recipe in a Seventh Day Adventist Cookbook that allowed me to make my own seasoning mix. That was years ago - so I'm not certain which cookbook it was, but I think it was called "Something Better."

This is my adaptation of that recipe. I don't use it a lot, so I make a small batch and store it in a reused spice bottle. If I used it every day, I'd double or quadruple it!

Scrambled Tofu from your Own Pantry Seasoning Mix

Scrambled Tofu Pantry Mix
Shake & Store in Pantry
1/4 Cup Nutritional Yeast (not to be confused with Baking Yeast or Brewer's Yeast)
3/4 teaspoon Turmeric
1/4 teaspoon Celery Seed
1/2 teaspoon Salt (more to taste)
1 teaspoon Onion Powder
1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
Pinch Pepper

Scrambled Tofu
Saute in Skillet
Your Choice Chopped Vegetables (whichever ones you prefer in an Omlete, such as Onions, Tomatoes, Black Olives, Bell Peppers & Mushrooms)*
Then Add
1 Block (about 1 pound) Firm Tofu (not silken), drained & crumbled
Scrambled Tofu Pantry Mix added till color is right (I use about 5 teaspoons)
Stir till warmed through, and serve as you would serve Scrambled Eggs.

*Vegetables are entirely optional - as they are when you make scrambled eggs. I like to chop extra veggies when topping Pizza one night, and use the same veggies in Scrambled Tofu the following night.

Vegan Breakfast Burritos
Fill Warm Tortilla with
Scrambled Tofu
Roll & Eat!

Tip for Dining with Omnivores: For Omnivores, you can make a Breakfast Burrito filled with Scrambled Eggs, Melted Shredded Cheddar (stirred into the Eggs) and Salsa wrapped in a Tortilla. The same sauteed veggies may be used in the Vegan and Egg versions.

  1. This looks great! The Seventh Day Adventist Cookbooks I have seen look neat! Lots of great ideas! Years ago I took a few vegetarian cooking classes from the pastors wife at our local Seventh Day Adventist Church! She was an awesome lady! She did things with tofu that blew me away!

    1. I'm not Seventh Day Adventist, but I have (and love) several cookbooks written by SDA. In fact, 2 of my favorite cookbooks were written by SDA.

  2. I LOVE scrambled tofu! and I am an SDA:) I am with you on the sweet at breakfast, but my hubby loves savory. We enjoy scrambled tofu with biscuits and gravy, but I'll have to try these breakfast burritos!!!

    1. So delighted to have you here! I'm not SDA, but I have a cousin who is and have read the SDA cookbooks & magazine for decades : ) Hope you enjoy the burritos - you'll have to let me know how it goes!


Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology. (at the current moment, I cannot manage to reply to posts on my blog at all -despite repeated attempts to do so. I DO appreciate your comments, and hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon! )

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
