Let’s talk about tofu.
It’s delicious when prepared the right way. It gets a bad rap (and deservedly so) when it’s served unseasoned, uncooked, and just blah. Unfortunately, bad tofu is served a lot so people who haven’t even tasted tofu automatically think they won’t like it because of what they’ve heard about it.
Surprisingly, I used to be one of those people! At the time, I had never tried tofu but I just assumed that I wouldn’t like it because I’d heard so many people say they hated the consistency and that it was flavorless.
My first taste of a flavorful tofu dish was at Chipotle of all places. My husband and I don’t eat fast food, so going to Chipotle is our favorite easy dinner treat that we save for days when I have absolutely no time to cook. I used to always get a chicken burrito but when we switched to a plant-based lifestyle, I begrudgingly ordered a vegan sofritos bowl instead. After the first bite, I was seriously blown away by how flavorful the sofritos (spicy seasoned tofu) was and I happily inhaled the entire bowl!
From that day on, I wondered what other tofu dishes I was missing out on and started exploring and tasting all the different tofu varieties that I could find!
What I learned is that tofu is an amazing high-protein and nutrient-dense food that works so well in so many different recipes anddd it comes in many different forms. Tofu is cholesterol-free, gluten-free, low in calories, low-carb, it’s a complete protein, and it’s loaded with iron, calcium, and selenium.

I call this tofu scramble recipe mind-blowing because I remember the first time I ate a really good tofu scramble and my mind was literally blown. I couldn’t believe I was eating tofu that tasted really damn good and I also couldn’t wrap my mind around that fact that it actually tastes like scrambled eggs! I use to love scrambled eggs (this used to be my favorite breakfast bowl, now I make it with scrambled tofu instead of eggs!) and I never thought I could eat them again.
