I love experimenting with tofu, and was keen to make a tofu scramble for the blog. Inspired by my White Bean Scramble, I was keen to add plenty of spices and create something quick and easy yet full of flavour. 

So, I went for a base of fragrant garlic and onion and sweet red peppers, along with some aromatic coriander and earthy cumin, smoky paprika and spicy cayenne.

 You can use firm or silken tofu – either works depending on what kind of texture you’re after.

This Vegan Mexican Tofu Scramble is delicious on its own with some fruity mango salsa and creamy avocado, but also makes a great filling for burritos, enchiladas or tacos.
