Danny’s Tofu Scramble

This is one of Danny’s favourite breakfasts. It is super easy and also very nutritious, with tofu being full of protein. It is a great vegan alternative to scrambled eggs but instead of trying to replicate scrambled eggs, this recipe offers up something new, a delicious, healthy and cruelty free breakfast. We recommend serving this up on buttered toast, with some smashed avocado on top too if that’s your kind of thing! I have a slight soy allergy so I can’t indulge in this breakfast and it makes me ever so sad because it smells so tasty! You could also make this up as part of a breakfast fry up, or use it in a burrito or sandwich. I hear a lot of people saying they get bored of the same old breakfasts, so go on, why not give this a try?
