Spicy Kimchi Tofu Scramble

February 22, 2019

Although tofu is often used as a vegan alternative to scrambled eggs, this is nothing like the latter, packing a fiery kick, depth of flavour and nutrients galore from the many spices and kimchi. It works beautifully on avocado toast for a weekend brunch or as a light lunch on it’s own. I also like to stir in spinach at the end for a kick of iron. Per portion it gives you same amount of protein as 2 eggs (12.5g approx) and, if watching your cholesterol, less saturated fat so an excellent plant based alternative.



Serves 2


  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

  • 1 small red onion, chopped

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1 inch ginger, peeled and minced

  • 1 red chilli, minced (but add depending on how much heat you like – remember the kimchi is spicy too!)

  • ½ tsp ground turmeric

  • ½ tsp ground cumin

  • ½ tsp ground coriander

  • ½ tsp mustard seeds

  • 225g smoked tofu (I use ‘The Tofoo Co.)

  • 1 heaped tbsp kimchi, chopped (Where To Buy)

  • 1 tbsp tamari

  • 25g coriander, chopped

  • Salt, pepper and lime to taste













  • In a deep frying pan, melt the coconut oil and gently sauté the onion with a pinch of salt for 5 – 10 minutes until translucent.

  • Add in the garlic, ginger and chilli, stir frying for 2 minutes.

  • Stir in the spices and then the tofu.

  • Stir-fry the tofu for 10minutes, squashing it down with the back of a wooden spoon or masher as you go to ‘scramble’ it. You may want to add a dash of water if it starts becoming too dry.

  • Add in the kimchi, a grind of pepper, tamari and the coriander and serve with a wedge of lime
