Spinach Tofu Scramble with Waffles

Happy Mother’s Day everyone! Well today is only Saturday, but tomorrow I will be spending with my family! I am also guessing that many of you may read this tomorrow anyway. The truth is that this Spinach Tofu Scramble would be perfect for Sunday branch this weekend and I should have posted earlier! Oh well, I am sorry about that, however, I did posted those delicious and HEALTHY CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES.

They would be perfect surprise for your moms, besides many other recipes I have on my blog. Nevertheless, This Spinach Tofu Scramble with gluten free waffles, is perfect breakfast or brunch for any day or weekend. It is highly nutritious and satisfying. What i also great, that you an take it with you to work, because you can heat up those waffles in a toaster.

I would also suggest adding more veggies or salad, for example GURU SALAD , which is Finely sliced Kale with Red Cabbage. Anyway, check my Salad Recipes for more ideas if you like. Altough, you can just cut up some tomatoes, like you see on the photos, or radishes, peppers and cucumbers.

Also, they are many variations how to make the tofu scramble. To be honest, I make it quite often, because it is easy, quick, flavorful, satisfying and highly nutritious. Sometimes I make it with red peppers, another time with mushrooms and most often just with green onions – scallions. Oh and by the way, I love it with potatoes on the side. Whether bake potato or oven roasted.

I am sure, all of you vegans reading this are no strangers to scrambled tofu and maybe you can share your ideas and experience with us. I would love to hear from you and thank you for visiting.
