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.
