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!
