I was browsing Instagram the other day when I came across a pre-made spice mix that was intended to make tofu scramble taste like eggs. The idea was great, but the price tag- not so much. I had a look at the ingredients and realized I had everything already at hand in my kitchen, so I started playing around and made my own tofu scramble spice mix. And you know what, it really does make tofu taste like eggs. I don’t think it’s eggy enough to fool someone completely, but it’s pretty close and definitely tasty!

The secret to this spice mix is black salt which is also called kala namak. It’s the same ingredient I use to make my Vegan Toast Dipping Sauce (which is like a vegan egg yolk).

If your black salt is black in colour, then you have the wrong stuff! Don’t use it in this recipe as it won’t taste correct and will make your tofu a funny green colour. Yuck. The black salt I’m referring to is actually pink in colour and has a very eggy taste. It’s the must-have key ingredient in this tofu scramble spice mix so don’t skip it!

You can find black salt online on Amazon or in Indian grocery stores.

When you are ready to prepare your tofu scramble, add vegan butter or oil to a pan and heat. When hot, add your tofu of choice. Medium-firm tofu will result in a creamy and tender scramble, firm tofu will be a bit less tender, and extra-firm tofu is perfect for a drier scramble. Crumble the tofu of choice into the pan, and sprinkle over 2 tablespoons of the tofu scramble spice mix. Stir to evenly distribute the spice and heat through.

Feel free to amp up your tofu by first sautéing veggies, adding beans, or any garnishes you like. You can enjoy the scramble plain, on toast, in a breakfast burrito, in a bowl, or anywhere you enjoy.

Store the remaining spice mix in a jar in your cupboard to have at the ready for next time.

Bon appetegan!
