I love tofu scrambles. When I first went vegan and discovered I could use tofu instead of scrambled eggs, a whole new breakfast world was opened up for me. I make a tofu scramble at least once a week. This bruschetta scramble is a family favorite. I originally created this recipe as a test for my kids when I was trying to add some variety to their breakfast meals. I wanted to add more protein to their morning meal and thought a tofu scramble would be perfect, but couldn’t get them to eat one. That was until I thought to combine the bruschetta and kalamata olives together – two of their favorite things. I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of it sooner! It was a success and it has become a constant on our weekly breakfast menu ever since.
Recently, I decided to kick this tofu scramble up a notch for my father-in-laws birthday. I wanted to make it a little extra special so I added some more Italian flavor with the fresh basil and my new favorite shredded Parmesan cheese by Follow Your Heart. For a final burst of flavor, I added some fresh avocado slices, because everything is better with avocado in my opinion! It was a hit and I was the only vegan at the birthday brunch! That’s a winner in my book so I am sharing it with all of you!
This recipe comes together very quickly. You could just as easily make it the morning you are going to eat it or prepare it the night before and refrigerate it until the next day (waiting to garish with the fresh basil and avocado until you are ready to serve it).
