Cauliflower Scramble | Vegan Scrambled Eggs, No Tofu




Time 10m



We made this colourful cauliflower scramble to help you start the day with a healthy breakfast. With as little as 100 calories per serving, you'll get a nice boost of fibres and antioxidants - and you won't believe it tastes so good too!

All you need is a head of cauliflower, a pinch of garlic powder, golden turmeric, and a trusty skillet to pan-fry everything. Add a spoonful of nutritional yeast for extra nutrients and finish off with freshly grated black pepper. Your quick breakfast scramble is ready for slurping!

Scrambled eggs are a world-famous breakfast classic, made with eggs, cream, butter, all stirred over a frying pan. Many plant-based alternatives include tofu or chickpea flour as an egg replacement. For this recipe, instead, we wanted to make a light vegetable scramble that is both vegan and soy-free.

Pan-frying grated cauliflower is a quick way of preparing this vegetable and make it taste good too. Cauliflowers are rich in fibres, vitamins, and much-needed antioxidants. Pairing them with turmeric means you'll stock up on even more antioxidants and give a golden tone to the scramble as well.

Serve this cauliflower scramble with roasted mushrooms, tomatoes, baked beans, and toast. You'll have a balanced and delicious breakfast in no time. It will keep you full and satisfied all morning without energy crashes. You could even use the scramble as a stuffing for a breakfast burrito or an avocado sandwich to enjoy on the go.

Small in size but big on flavour, each serving provides almost 5 grams of fibres and 8 grams of proteins. This translate into nearly 20% RDI of these precious nutrients, all with very few fats. Oh, and did we mention it's ready in just 10 minutes? Super!
