Wake Up with a Tofu Scramble

Sarah of Making Thyme for Health makes our Tofu Scramble for brunch.

Published July 31, 2017.

Let America’s Test Kitchen introduce you to a delicious world of interesting textures and fresh flavors that make cooking vegan accessible to all. We’ve published our first vegan cookbook, Vegan for Everybody, that suits the needs of everyone—whether you’re a strict vegan or not. In doing so, we developed recipes (with no animal products—period) that wowed us in terms of flavor and texture, showing that veganism isn’t about making sacrifices or substitutions, but about celebrating a new way to eat.


Some of the best breakfasts are not only satisfying but also quick and easy enough to make on a weekday before you’ve had your morning coffee. Lucky for vegans and nonvegans alike, this scramble, straight our of our Vegan for Everybody cookbook, fits the bill.

“Naturally when America’s Test Kitchen asked if they could send me a copy of their newest book, Vegan For Everybody, I jumped at the opportunity,” Sarah of Making Thyme for Health writes. “If you’re not familiar with ATK, they’re known for taking the time to research multiple different methods of preparation and execution to assure that they’re producing the best recipes possible.”

Just because you’re vegan doesn’t mean breakfast is limited to smoothies, oatmeal, or energy bars. For breakfasts that will satisfy vegans and nonvegans, we recreate egg dishes using tofu, as its texture when cooked properly can mimic eggs. 

“I’ve had many a tofu scrambles out to eat but I never tried making my own at home so I thought their recipe would be the perfect place to start. It calls for just a few simple ingredients and takes less than 10 minutes to whip up. My kinda breakfast.”

For a recipe that offered a creamy, egg-like texture and a subtle but satisfying flavor, we make our scramble using soft-textured tofu. Adding a small amount of turmeric was key to contributing depth of flavor and a nice touch of color.

“Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian or an omnivore who’s interested in eating more plant-based meals, I highly recommend checking out Vegan For Everybody," writes Sarah. "It’s an awesome book and proves that you don’t need animal products to cook drool-worthy meals that will please every palate!”

Vegan for Everybody

Veganism is going mainstream. The benefits of consuming fewer animal products appear frequently in the news. But eating vegan can seem overwhelming: Will it be flavorful? Satisfying? Easy to make? In Vegan for Everybody, the test kitchen addresses head-on what gives people pause—finding great and filling vegan protein options, cooking without dairy, preparing different whole grains and vegetables, and even baking.
