What’s In This Vegan Turmeric Tofu Breakfast Sandwich Recipe?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Extra Firm Tofu: This tofu holds up better than any others I’ve tried, and is perfect for crumbling in this tofu scramble. Since it’s extra firm and pre-pressed, it doesn’t fall apart in the pan like other types of tofu can.
  • Olive Oil: for a little extra richness to the tofu
  • Turmeric: which gives this tofu a bright vibrant color.
  • Garlic & Chili Powder
  • Nutritional Yeast: not to be confused with bread baking yeast, nutritional yeast has a cheesy nutty umami flavor which is great in all kinds of dishes – I even sprinkle it on fresh popped pop corn and WOW!  Also great in soups and sauces of all kinds.
  • English Muffins: or any breakfast-sandwich vehicle of you choice. You can use bagels, toast, or even crumpets if you’re fancy. If you are gluten free, make sure you use a product that is certified gluten free.
  • Roasted Red Pepper: Gives this sandwich a bright fresh flavor, and pairs perfectly with the tofu.

How Do You Cook Tofu?

While tofu may seem intimidating if you haven’t tried it, it’s actually a convenient and plant-based protein option that easily takes on flavor and can be incorporated into a wide variety of simple meals: from sandwiches and salads to stir-fry’s and noodle dishes.

By quickly seasoning tofu using your favorite sauces or spices, it becomes a flavorful, tasty addition to any meal. I sauteed mine with turmeric, chili powder, garlic powder, and nutritional yeast, which tasted delicious on top of an English muffin.
