Turmeric Tofu Scramble


Turmeric Tofu Scramble

Tofu scramble is a great vegan alternative for eggs. It is also super fun to crumble the tofu block! This recipe is super simple and ready in less than 30 minutes, with minimal prep required too. It is excellent for meal prep and is filling and nutritious. This dish is ideal for those like me who love turmeric - but also brilliant to try as something new too.
