If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it should be nutritious, tasty and filling.
But sometimes we're on the go and end up reaching for something quick, like a bagel. Good thing this recipe takes less than 30-minutes to make and can be prepared ahead of time! \

It’s also quite versatile; you can pile it on top of some toast, wrap it up in a tortilla for a breakfast burrito, or eat it as is with some salsa on the side.

It’s also high in protein from the tofu, which will help you stay fuller longer. It uses turmeric for color, which is a great anti-inflammatory ingredient. There are bell peppers for that vitamin c. And black beans deliver that extra protein and lots of fiber. I must say, this is truly a breakfast for a champion!

Mexican Tofu Scramble

Prep Time: 10 Min
Cook Time: 15 Min
Total Time: 25 Min


  • 12-oz Block Extra Firm Tofu
  • 3 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • ½ Green Bell Pepper, chopped

  1. Drain your tofu, wrap it in a clean towel or paper towel. Gently press to remove the water inside.
