- Frozen hash brown potatoes: Using frozen hashbrowns saves time and effort in shredding potatoes.
- Frozen pepper and onion veggie blend: The mix of bell peppers and onions in this blend adds flavor and nutrition to the recipe. If you can’t find this blend, you can use fresh bell peppers and onions instead.
- Mushrooms: Sliced mushrooms add a meaty texture to the dish and can be a good source of vitamin D, if they’ve been exposed to sunlight.
- Black beans: Canned black beans make a great protein source and add texture to the dish. Make sure to drain and rinse them before using.
- Seasonings – Onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt, nutritional yeast, turmeric powder. These spices and seasonings add flavor to the tofu scramble and the veggies. Nutritional yeast also adds a cheesy flavor and extra nutrients to the dish.
- Olive oil: Using a couple of tablespoons of olive oil ensures that the veggies won’t dry out and adds healthy fats to the recipe.
- Extra firm tofu: This type of tofu holds its shape better and has a chewier texture, making it a good substitute for eggs in a scramble.
- Toppings – toppings are ESSENTIAL in this recipe. I love using vegan sour cream, guacamole, and salsa. These toppings add creaminess, freshness, and additional flavors to the dish. You can use store-bought or homemade versions of these toppings.
👩🍳 Expert tips
- Make this dish ahead of time and freeze it for a quick breakfast option during busy mornings.
- Don’t worry about pressing the tofu. Baking it will get rid of the excess water. Just squeeze the excess liquid out over the sink, it’s ok if it crumbles in your hand.
- Some of the foods might get dry if you bake them too long, so make sure you use a couple tablespoons of oil to keep everything tasty.
- This is also freezer friendly. If you know you have a busy week ahead, make this on a Sunday, put it in a burrito wrap and cover tightly with tin foil. Pop them in the freezer or fridge and you’ve got breakfast burritos you can warm up and then take with you on the go.
- This bowl definitely needs toppings. Avocado or guacamole, sour cream and salsa are best. Scroll down to learn how to make your own creamy dressing.
