Tofu Breakfast

It’s a well-known saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Despite this, many people skip breakfast for different reasons. Some may want a few extra minutes of sleep, while others skip breakfast believing it will help them lose weight.According to the Mayo Clinic, skipping breakfast has more bad consequences than good. Breakfast helps refuel the body, and studies have shown that skipping breakfast may actually lead to fat retention and weight gain.

I developed this recipe several years ago, and it’s a good option for a make-ahead breakfast that can be prepared the night before. It’s packed full of color and nutrition, and is low-carb for folks watching their intake of carbohydrates.


  • 5-6 eggs
  • 1 cup extra-firm tofu, cubed
  • 1/4 cup purple onion, finely diced
  • 2-3 sprigs of green onion, diced
  • 5-6 button or cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 orange bell pepper
  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • Oregano, salt, pepper and fresh garlic to taste

Prepare vegetables. Place them in a saute pan and saute until done to likeness. Add tofu, eggs and cheese. Scramble together until eggs are done cooking. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for 1-2 days.
