I like to think that I’ve perfected the art of vegan scrambled eggs. When I decided to cut all dairy out of my diet in 2017, eggs were the last on the list to go. I used to eat six eggs in one sitting because I couldn’t get enough of the taste. Fast forward a few years and eggs are no longer a part of my diet. A LOT can change in a few years!
This breakfast meal is my go-to whenever I don’t know what to make. It’s fast and easy to whip up, you’ll be in and out of the kitchen in record time.
Some recipe notes:
- I’m a huge fan of seasoning in my food because of my Caribbean roots, so the recipe you’ll be receiving today is packed with flavor.
- I chose to add Just Egg to this recipe because it adds an extra eggy flavor and since it’s made from Mung beans, there is a lot of added nutrition being packed into it as well, which is always a plus.
- The entire meal will take about 30 minutes which includes prep time. As a plus, the more you make this meal, the faster it gets!

What you’ll need:
For the scramble:
1/2 cup Just Egg
1/4 block Extra Firm Tofu
1/4 small onion (chopped)
1 stalk of scallions
1 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 tbsp cajun seasoning or 2 pieces of dried red chili (chopped)
1/2 tsp Black Salt / Kala Namak
1 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
1/4 cup water
For the Pancake:
Unsweetened Apple sauce (egg substitute)
-Add water, black salt, garlic powder, nutritional yeast, cajun seasoning or chili to a skillet on low heat
-In the meantime, crush the tofu with a fork or hands and keep for later
-Add onions and scallions to the skillet and saute until soft
-Add crushed Tofu
-Stir all ingredients
-Add Just Egg
-Keep stirring all ingredients for 7-9 minutes
-Follow directions on the package with these simple vegan twists:
-Substitute unsweetened applesauce for Eggs (1/4 cup of applesauce equals 1 egg)
-Substitute regular butter for Vegan Butter
-Tip: I add up to 1/4 cup more water to the pancake mixture to get the desired texture. Because we’re using applesauce instead of eggs, the mixture tends to come out too thick when I follow the exact measurements on the box. The mixture should not be too thick or too thin.
