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.

Thank you! I enjoyed making this as a lightly steamed vegetable dish. It was great. I had some previously steamed cauliflower which I added toward the end. I also substituted tamari for the soy sauce. This is a great meal as I battle breast cancer with natural measures!

This dish turned out really nice, after my initial prep off the ingredients. Flavors married together well and truly woke my taste buds this morning. It really looks like scrambled eggs, but taste so much better! Thanks for the recipe

I love this, and make it whenever cauli is at its best.

I also put crumbled tofu sprinkled with turmeric. I do this scrambles often.

My new favourite breakfast, lunch and dinner :).
I omitted the cayenne (it’s not you, it’s me) and used miso instead of soy as I think it has a fuller flavour.
Thanks

I love this scramble. Next, I will put less turmeric. I had side toast with it.

Such a delicious way to start the day! All the veggies are well seasoned. Next time I will add even more veggies to make enough for lunch.

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
