Scrambled tofu with rocket

For me, Sunday morning breakfast usually means eggs - scrambled, poached eggs in tomatoes, fried, egg bhurji (spiced scrambled eggs) or a full English breakfast. But last week I experimented with tofu - I had a nice hearty breakfast of scrambled tofu with spinach, with some veggie sausages and grilled tomatoes on the side. So I decided to recreate it this morning, but this time using rocket instead of the spinach. This recipe is for my vegan friends. Hope you guys like it! :)

Serves 1

150 gm organic tofu

1 tsp pure coconut oil
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1/4 tsp turmeric
1 red chilli, finely chopped (optional)
Handful of rocket leaves
Salt and pepper, as per taste


Heat the coconut oil in a pan, on medium heat. Add the cumin and let it sputter. Add in the chopped onion and green chilli and cook for 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook for a further minute.

Add the turmeric powder and salt to taste, and stir well. Lightly crumble the tofu and and mix gently. Cook for 5 minutes. Toss in the rocket, mix and cook for a couple of minutes. Season with some pepper.

Serve the scrambled tofu with some grilled tomatoes, rocket leaves and vegan sausages. 



  1. Hey, what vegan sausages did you use?

    (looks delicious!)

    1. Thanks Matthew! I have used 'secret sausages' (chilli and coriander). I believe this particular flavour is vegan.
