Quinoa & Tofu Breakfast Scramble

Plated with thin slices of maple tempeh bacon, quinoa & tofu scramble hits the spot!
The best part of waking up is a plate of this quinoa tofu scramble in your gut!
I know. That didn't rhyme....
Still, this is a hearty, very satisfying breakfast that deserves kudos. Quinoa and tofu scrambled together and paired with maple tempeh bacon is a real championship winner for the hungriest early riser! Fluffy, light texture, bright yellow hue, and flavorful combination is a much better substitute, especially without all the unnecessary cholesterol.
For other variations like adding a vegetable spin, great suggestions would be portobello mushrooms, red and green bell peppers, spinach and broccoli, and even shredded carrots or a side of herb roasted breakfast potatoes.
Either way, this was an amazingly splendid part of the morning! A good hefty portion should keep a person energetic for hours!

Quinoa & Tofu Breakfast Scramble Ingredients and Preparation

1/4 cup red onion, finely diced
2 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 block tofu, dried and chopped
1/4 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Also a great filling for burritos, this quinoa & tofu scramble is amazingly fulfilling!
