Cheezy Seitan Tofu Scramble

Cheezy Seitan Tofu Scramble


  • 14 oz block firm tofu, cut width-wise into 1/2 inch slabs
  • 1 package Upton’s Naturals Chorizo Seitan Crumbles
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • Daiya Cheddar Style Slices


  1. Salt, pepper, and bake the tofu on a parchment lined baking sheet at 450 F until lightly browned, 15-20 minutes.
  2. Saute onions and peppers in a skillet until soft; add seitan and heat through.
  3. Add tofu to skillet with a splash of water [to help distribute turmeric], chopping and stirring with a spatula until desired consistency.
  4. Spread the scramble evenly in skillet; lay Daiya slices on top and place skillet in the oven or under the broiler (if your skillet is oven/broiler safe) or cover until slices melt (you may need to add a splash of water to create some steam to help melt the slices)
  5. Serve. (We paired ours with OJ, toast, and cubed baked potatoes.

Wait, You Baked The Tofu First?

Baking the tofu before scrambling it into the skillet gave it a great texture. It was firm yet soft, with the slight resemblance of a fried egg (without the egg parts).  While we do try to avoid processed vegan food, we appreciate the hard work and efforts that these innovative companies put forth to create delicious, cruelty-free alternatives.  Enjoy these vegan options every once in a while and support the plant-based businesses that are changing the way we see food!
