Tofu Scramble Bagel Sandwich




I love Sunday Breakfast, and while I don't have a pancake recipe for you, this sandwich is just as good.  It's incredibly flavorful, and it's really filling.  If you serve it with a side of fresh sliced peaches, you'll be happy for the whole day!


Tofu Scramble Bagel Sandwich


  • 1 package extra firm sprouted tofu (or any firm tofu)
  • 2 cups chopped lacinato kale, rough chopped
  • 2 tbs coconut oil
  • whole wheat bagels
  • vegan cheese slices
  • 2 jalapeno, sliced thin
  • 2 cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 1 banana pepper, sliced thin
  • earth balance for buttering
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 tbs cumin
  • 1 tbs tumeric
  • 1 tbs dried dill
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • pepper to taste

Heat a large pan on medium/high heat.

Melt the coconut oil.  

Add kale, garlic, jalapeno and banana pepper to the pan.  Saute for 8 minutes, until the kale starts to soften.  Take care not to burn the garlic.  Turn the pan down to medium heat.

Crumble the tofu into the pan.  There's no need to press the water out.  

Saute for 5 minutes, then add the nutritional yeast and water.  Stir so it's all mixed together.  Add the remaining spices.

Cook down the tofu scramble for another 10 minutes.

Toast your bagel, then butter each side.  Lay the vegan cheese on one side and top with the scramble.  Enjoy!







I surprised myself with how much flavor this dish had.  My initial thought when I finished the sandwich was, "Could I stomach another one?!"  Of course, I could not, but I know I'll be making them for breakfast this week.




This is a great breakfast to get your day going.  It has protein, fat and carbohydrates, and it even has a healthy dose of greens!

What's your favorite go-to vegan breakfast sandwich?

  1. Tofu scramble on any kind of bread is definitely a breakfast go-to. And avo-toast! I could eat that every day forever! What kind of bagels are those? I'm always looking for a healthier better bagel!

    1. that's a good question, haha. I just grabbed them at kroger because they looked all hearty and wheat-y. I will have to check when I get home.

      Avo english muffin was my breakfast this morning!
