Sweet Potato Tofu Scramble (DF, GF)

I think this is MUCH better if the package of tofu is frozen first.  Just make sure to take it out of the freezer in advance so it will be thawed when you are ready to make this.

I like the flavor of the sweet potato with the tofu - it adds a nice flavor

1 cup chopped veggies of your choice (I use peppers and onion)
1 pkg firm or extra firm tofu (water packed), drained and squeezed dry
3/4 cup chopped sweet potato 
1/4 tsp ground turmeric
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast Flakes  (I use Now Foods)

Drain the package of tofu and squeeze to get out as much water as possible.  

Cook the sweet potato in the microwave for a couple minutes to soften.  Then cut the sweet potato into chunks and add to pan.

I actually cook the veggies in the pan with a little water to soften them and slightly caramelize them - before adding the tofu .

Then crumble the tofu and add to the veggies in the pan.  Add all spices. Cook over medium-low heat until they are the consistency you like.  I happen to like mine on the drier side (because I usually put ketchup on them !!!).  

so that it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me.  This life that I live now, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave his life for me.
Galatians 2:20 (GNT)


  1. Have never made tofu scramble with sweet potatoes. As it turns out I have both ingredients in the house and will try it this way.I add many more spices as I find it really improves taste the more I use. I'd like to be able to pin at a taste of vegan on Pinterest. Can you explain how to do it or invite me? My email there is Keep up the good work of sharing vegan recipes. Nancy A.
