Make ahead meal idea: Veggie Tofu Scramble

If there one thing busy vegans can appreciate, it’s the beauty of a nutritious, make-ahead meal. I love taking time on Sunday to prep out a few meals for the week – usually lunches or snacks for work and school.

One of the most basic and easy vegan recipes to make ahead is the tofu scramble. It’s endlessly customizable and makes a great breakfast, lunch or dinner! Below is the recipe I recently created but feel free to use whatever veggies and spices you love and have on hand. No need in making things too complicated, this is a true throw-n-go meal.

Veggie & Sweet Potato Tofu Scramble

  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, diced
  • 1 block tofu
  • seasonings of choice: cumin, garlic, paprika, chili powder, nutritional yeast, salt & pepper
  1. Dice and roast sweet potatoes in 400 degree oven for around 30 minutes (until cooked).
  2. Prep veggies. Sauté until soft in a medium-high skillet.
  3. Crumble tofu into veggie mix. Add seasonings and combine well + heat through.
  4. Stir in sweet potato and serve.

This made 4 large or 5 medium servings. I ate it for breakfast with a piece of toast, for lunch over some greens and for dinner with brown rice. It’s a very versatile make-ahead meal!

Speaking of make-ahead meals, here is what I have prepped for this week:

  • Fresh Almond Milk – 1 cup soaked almonds, 4 cups water, 4 dates, 1/2 vanilla bean. Blend and strain.
  • Almond pulp crackers – recipe from Girl on Raw newsletter. I made them garlic-basil-nooch flavor. They’re still in the dehydrator so the jury is out on how they taste.
  • Jicama Apple Slaw from Healthy.Happy.Life. – I subbed tahini for the vegan mayo because that’s what I have on hand. Going to serve for lunches in pita pockets with spicy hummus and veggies on the side.
  • Carrot Spice Muffins from Happy Herbivore’s first cookbook. Whole wheat, no fat, vegan and made with a veggie!! For snacking or as a part of breakfast.
  • Sinless Samoas from Eating Bird Food. I used 1 cup almond meal instead of the almond butter in order to give the recipe more protein and increase the amount. Though these are technically desserts I’m calling them a morning snack!
  • Fresh fruit and veggies. Grapes, apples, carrot, cucumber. Washed and ready to snack on.

One thought on “Make ahead meal idea: Veggie Tofu Scramble

  1. I love a good tofu scramble! One of my favorite things about-breakfast-for dinner nights is that I get to take tofu scramble with me to work for breakfast the next morning. It’s so easy and nutritious, like you said (plus. it smells amazing, making people to ask “what are you eating?”). I’ve never tried adding sweet potatoes to a scramble before, but I like the way you think! 🙂
