Vegan Tofu Scrambled 'Egg'

Scrambled 'egg' with turmeric powder added.

Without turmeric powder.
This vegan tofu scrambled 'egg' is as good as real, no joke. Black salt is used to give that sulphuric taste and smell of egg, this is almost like a must-have for this recipe. Where to buy? Please refer to below note. If you really couldn't get, you can use the sea salt in your pantry too. The turmeric powder gives that natural beautiful yellow colour of scrambled egg.

This recipe makes a perfect breakfast dish, and can also be used with recipes like Vegan Fried 'Egg' Rice and Fresh Spring Roll Popiah. This is so easy to do and within a few minutes. Taste awesome and nutritious too! You can serve this tofu scrambled eggs with baked beans, hash brown for that full English breakfast set. How nice, what a great way to start the day!
