This recipe is a simple concept that has your taste buds diving into a new world of flavour. It is a high protein recipe and will pack a punch in your mornings. Scrambled tofu as a replacement for eggs is no new concept, however having scrambled tofu on it's own is never a very visually appealing or flavoursome dish. By adding the Mexican flare to scrambled egg replacement it's flavour profile exceeds it's looks and it becomes a truly magnificent morning meal. I have created this dish countless times for guests and every single one has adored it. If you have recently given up eggs or are looking for alternatives, this is a great substitute to allow you to still have your scrambled breakfast but in a whole new amazing way.
