A Vegan Scrambled Tofu Breakfast Bagel! If you are someone who used to love those egg breakfast bagels/sandwiches, this is for you!
A juicy, protein-packed scrambled tofu bagel – perfect to start your day. Or just have it for lunch? Why not!
I got inspired by this whilst I was visiting New York. I was on the hunt for vegan breakfast in NYC, so I stopped at this shop and they served those incredible vegan bagels with vegan egg in it. So I had to try to make my own version whenn I got back.
This version with tofu is a simple scramble with a few ingredients. But when done, it becomes a vibrant, delicious, savory, satisfying meal to start the day.
It has got a slight twist on it! I have thrown a few spices in there to spice things up…but you can customize the spices to your own preference.
The recipe is flexible to taste, add veggies of choice, change up the spices, and make this your own.
What’s your favorite breakfast?
How do you like to start the day? Or do you skip breakfast? I am curious!
I love starting my day with breakfast because it helps me not worry about food once it all gets busy.
Other favorite breakfasts for me include – Healthy Granola Bar On The Go, Spinach pancakes with hummus ,Healthy Protein Chocolate Quinoa Breakfast Bowl and etc…
