The VRC has a traditional and much-loved scrambled tofu recipe which we have cooked live at cookery demonstrations and at our own breakfast tables many times over the last few years. 

This alternative recipe uses a unique product called The Vegg. It is based on nutritional yeast flakes, with other added ingredients and forms a substance very similar to an egg yolk when you add water to it.

It's great to add an 'egg' style flavour and consistency to dishes. The Vegg is available from buy in the UK from Vegan Store and Veggie Stuff.

This recipe, using The Vegg, produces a more traditional 'egg' tasting and looking scrambled tofu.

Serves: 
2
Time: 
20 minutes
Ingredients: 

Between 2 and 4 tsp of Vegg flakes/powder. We used 2.
1 cup water
Fry light sunflower or olive oil
220g/8 oz firm tofu
2 spring onions, finely chopped
Salt & pepper

Method: 

1. Blend together The Vegg flakes/power with the water and set aside.

2. Spray a hot frying pan with Fry Light spray, or use a tiny amount of oil or vegan margarine instead, then crumble in the tofu and add the spring onion. Cook it for about 5 minutes, stirring, so it starts to turn lightly golden. 

3. Mix in the cup of Vegg and cook it in with the scrambled tofu until it reaches a consistency you like. The longer you cook it, the firmer it will become.

3. Season to taste and serve on toast, with brown or tomato sauce, or as part of a big vegan fried breakfast.
