Tofu & White Bean Scramble

It is said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it sets you up for the day ahead while at the same time it sets your intentions, your intentions about how you feel about your body and your health.

Run out the door and grab a takeaway muffin and coffee and you are saying that you don’t value yourself enough to spend a few moments giving yourself a healthy and nutritious start to your day.  You also leave yourself open to energy crashes mid morning.

What you eat at breakfast sets the scene for the day ahead and at The Body Retreat we advocate that you have a protein based breakfast to help keep your energy levels balanced all morning.  Some of the most popular breakfasts on retreat are egg based, we love a good eggy breakfast, scrambled, poached, fried or omelette all winning breakfast dishes.

But what if you don’t eat eggs, are you confined to a lifetime of breakfast cereal?

Not necessarily… here our Tofu & White Bean Scramble for example. Takes only a few minutes to prepare and unlike scrambled eggs you can actually make this egg free scramble up the night before and simply warm through in the morning saving valuable time.

Quick & Easy Egg Free Scramble
Makes 6 portions or 4 very generous portions
  • 100gms Organic Unsmoked Tofu
  • 400gms White Beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 20mls Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • Salt & Black Pepper to taste
  • optional
  • freshly cut chives
  • 1/2 clove minced garlic
  • Handful chopped Spinach

Making this Tofu & White Bean Egg Free Breakfast Scramble couldn’t be easier.

Place the rinsed and drained beans in a pan with the almond milk and bring to the boil, reduce the heat and allow to simmer for about 10 mins.

Mash the beans and milk together to form a creamy base and then add the tofu.

Mix throughly. Season to your own personal taste.

Here we served our breakfast scramble with an avocado and tomato salsa, a real wake up call for the taste buds in the morning.
