This is the best tofu scramble recipe; it’s easy, is hassle-free, is delicious, is versatile, and is fast!

Giving our morning scrambled eggs, and white scrambles were amongst the hardest things to do during our transition to a plant-based lifestyle.

We enjoy working out very much, and we stuck to our scrambled eggs breakfast for a lot of time after we left meat behind.

We decided to try different tofu scramble recipes and we stumbled towards different versions. We felt that the texture was there but we still lacked some flavor.

Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying this tastes like eggs; I am saying that we lacked the protein and deliciousness coming from an egg scramble without sacrificing flavor.

We tried different thing, mixed and matched and have stuck to this recipe for more than three years now.

It is delicious, and it is very versatile. We use whatever combination of vegetables that we would typically use on eggs, on a base of tofu, nutritional yeast, mild mustard, and turmeric.

It is oil-free, cholesterol-free, and full of anti-inflammatory properties, brought to you by turmeric as a bonus.

Benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years to treat conditions such as joint pain, fatigue, and digestive issues, amongst other conditions.

Modern research also suggests that turmeric is a potent antioxidant, heart disease-fighting, and anti-cancer effects.

Note or Curcumin’s Absorption and Black Pepper

Is essential to add a bit of black pepper whenever consuming curcumin in order to boost its absorption. Both, black and white pepper contain piperine which is the active component that fulfills this role.

Most studies relate specifically black pepper to the consumption of curcumin. White pepper contains as much peperine as black pepper, suggesting it may also enhance curcumin’s absorption, I was not able to find a study that directly links the two, so I would stick to black pepper.

Red Pepper comes from a different plant and contains minimal amounts of piperine.

    1. Hola Maia. Generalmente se usa pimienta negra, pero el ingrediente activo que promueve la absorción de la cúrcuma es la piperina, que también se encuentra en la pimienta blanca. No así la pimienta roja, ya que es una planta diferente. Así que, en teoría tanto la pimienta blanca como negra, facilitarán la óptima absorción de las propiedades de la cúrcuma, sin embargo todos los estudios que pude encontrar en la relación a este tema, hablan específicamente sobre la pimienta negra, así que esta sería mi elección!
