Vegan Scrambled "Eggs"

Vegan Scrambled "Eggs"

The most traditional breakfast item that I can think of served constantly is eggs. A classic non-vegan dish that people going into the lifestyle will probably miss from time to time. It isn't something you will miss with this recipe at all. With the same look, taste, and texture it is perfect for vegans or non-vegans alike with its familiar taste. These vegan eggs can also be made and frozen for easy morning prep and serve. Serve with your favorite breakfast items or eat by itself, great on a breakfast sandwich or just toast. You will never miss eggs again with this recipe and you will be happy to wake up to a warm comforting breakfast in the AM. Enjoy!

Vegan Scrambled Eggs

Ingredients
-1 Tablespoon vegan butter or oil
-1 package Extra Firm Tofu, drained, and mashed into small curds
-1/4 to 1/2 cups grated vegan cheese (Optional: I used Daiya Cheddar, you can add more or less) 
-1/2 cup vegan chicken broth
-2 teaspoon The Vegg & 1/2 cup hot water (If you don't have this, the recipe will work without it also) 
-Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
-1/2 to 1 Tablespoon Nutritional Yeast (depending on how cheesy you want it) 
-1/2 Tablespoon Parsley, dried or fresh (optional, I like the color)

(This recipe can be doubles for more guests, if needed.)

Directions

In medium to large frying pan, Add your mashed tofu (I squeeze it in my hands, more fun) over high heat heat for about 4 minutes or until cooked lightly cooked. Once it has cooked for 4 minutes, add in vegan chicken broth, The Vegg, parsley, and salt & black pepper to taste. Stir mixture to combine and let it cook on high heat, repeatedly stirring until the liquid evaporates and the "eggs" are more firm and less watery, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Once the "eggs" are cooked, add in 1/4 cup of vegan cheese (optional) and the nutritional yeast and stir to combine and the cheese melts. Once its done mixing, remove from the heat and put in a separate bowl to cool and serve (it can also be frozen at this time if you want to make prepared breakfasts for morning). Serve with your favorite breakfast sides or eat by itself on a sandwich or with toast. Enjoy!
