Savory vegan scrambled eggs (tofu) swirled with smoky chipotle, onion, tomato, and cilantro, and topped with melted vegan cheddar cheese. One very secret ingredient transforms the tofu giving it the perfect egg flavor you miss. This is my favorite recipe of all time, you won't be able to tell it isn't cheesy scrambled eggs!



2 Chipotle en adobo peppers with about 1 Tbsp of sauce

1 small onion

1 bunch of cilantro, stems and leaves

3 small tomatoes

1-2 blocks of extra firm tofu

1/2 tsp Kala Namak Salt

1/4 cup Daiya cheddar shreds (or other vegan cheese)


  1. Process:  Process chipotle peppers, onion, cilantro, and tomatoes in a food processor.  Pulse 10x for 1 second each time or until the mixture forms a salsa.
  2. Saute:  Heat a skillet to medium heat and add oil, plant butter, or cooking spray.  Add 1 cup of crumbled tofu and saute.
  3. Add Salt:  Sprinkle Kala Namak salt over the tofu.  Stir and continue cooking until tofu is lightly browned.
  4. Add Salsa:  Add the desired amount of salsa (I like about 1/2 cup) and continue cooking for 3-5 more minutes.
  5. Add Cheese:  Add vegan cheese and continue to cook until cheese is melted.
