Tofu scramble is a popular quick and easy scrambled egg substitute for vegetarians and vegans. Most vegetarian restaurants and many breakfast and brunch places serve up some version of this dish, but it’s simple and easy enough to make at home with little more than tofu, a few veggies, a skillet and some seasonings.
