Today we tried a new (new to us) brand of tofu for our tofu scramble and I don’t want to underplay this but life has changed. Clearspring tofu is PERFECT for scrambling. I will never use any other brand for scramble ever again. It’s also very cheap – 300g for less than £2 and it made enough for 10 tacos (or 2 generous portions of scramble on toast).

clearspring tofu


1 carton of Clearspring Tofu

1/2 a red or white onion

2 bell peppers (I’d highly recommend 1 green and 1 red/yellow – green works so well in Mexican spiced dishes and combining it with the sweetness of the red/yellow is one hundred emoji)

Any other veggies you have lying around the fridge that need using up. Today I used a handful of button mushrooms

2 teaspoons turmeric

1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes

1/2 teaspoon chilli powder

If you like it really spicy add a chopped chilli or 2

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

2 crushed cloves of garlic

1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper (or any pepper)

1/4 teaspoon Mexican Oregano (optional)

Sprinkle of salt

1 teaspoon of Engevita yeast flakes (optional / nice to sprinkle on top at service)


Fry the onion and peppers (and any other veggies you’re using up) in a little oil on a medium heat for 2-3 minutes to soften.

Create a well and add the chill flakes to toast them for about a minute.

Add the tofu and attack it with a wooden spoon to flake/crumble it into scramble shape. Stir all the veggies into it.

Add all of the herbs/spices, stir through.

Turn the heat up and cook most of the moisture out for about 2-4 minutes.

tofu+scramble+taco tofu taco


I served mine this morning in tacos, with beans, avocado, tomato, lettuce siracha and super sprouts.

Try this bean recipe or the beans I made today were 1x tin of kidney beans, a teaspoon of smoky chilli paste, 1/4 teaspoon brown sugar, a pinch of lemon pepper, a tiny squirt of BBQ sauce and a little squeeze of tomato purée.

I also love Tofu Scramble on toast or in a breakfast burrito (with Vegan sausages, avocados, tomatoes, refried beans) or as part of a fry up.


A little behind the scenes shot here for you. I live in a basement flat so it’s really hard to take photos as the lack of light is frustrating. During the day if I’m taking a picture of a meal I’ll perch the plate on the cat tree which is in front of our patio doors, much to the amusement of passers by and the bemusement of my cat. I make good life choices.
