Upgrade your breakfast with this tofu scramble recipe over a vegan croissant. It’s delicious, packed with protein, and takes less than 10 minutes to make.
This is the best breakfast sandwich I’ve made in a while. All the ingredients for this tofu scramble blend so well together. To be honest, I don’t consume tofu that much. However, every now and again I do miss scrambled eggs. Even though this recipe does not taste like eggs, the color from the turmeric gives me all the feels of scrambled eggs, just like back in the day. In addition, if you’re looking for that “eggy” taste all you’ve got to do is add some black salt.
Where to buy vegan croissants
I buy these delicious vegan croissants from Wholefoods. They are amazing and they taste just like conventional croissants. I never thought I would be able to eat a croissant again until now. To be honest, I’m not much of a baker and I definitely don’t have the patience to make a vegan croissant from scratch.
