Carrot Quinoa Tofu Scramble

1 Comment

Since going plant-based I’ll admit I miss my scrambled eggs on occasion. Scrambled tofu doesn’t exactly taste like scrambled eggs, but the texture is pretty convincing and with enough flavours and spices you’re practically there. I particularly love this his version of the popular egg breakfast substitute as it combines beans, greens and a grain for a well-rounded start to your day and the toasted sunflower seeds add a lovely crunch to the otherwise warm and hearty bowl.
