There are many very good recipes for scrambles, but most call for tofu. In this recipe, cauliflower takes the place of the tofu—with delicious results.

There are many good recipes for scrambles, but most call for tofu. In this vegan scrambled eggs recipe, cauliflower takes it's place—with delicious results.

Ingredients

  • 1 red onion, peeled and cut into ½-inch dice
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into ½-inch dice
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and cut into ½-inch dice
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms (from about 8 ounces whole mushrooms)
  • 1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets, or 2 (19-ounce) cans ackee, drained and gently rinsed
  • Sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1½ teaspoons turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place the onion, red and green peppers, and mushrooms in a medium skillet or saucepan and sauté over medium-high heat for 7 to 8 minutes, or until the onion is translucent. Add water 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time to keep the vegetables from sticking to the pan.
  2. Add the cauliflower and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, or until the florets are tender.
  3. Add the salt to taste, pepper, turmeric, cayenne, garlic, soy sauce, and nutritional yeast (if using) to the pan, and cook for 5 minutes more, or until hot and fragrant.

A bit spicy for breakfast. I would cut the cayenne back quite a bit next time..it dominates the flavor.

I love cauliflower and can’t think of a better substitute for tofu which I also enjoy but doesn’t have the flavor cauliflower does. SMILE
