Breakfast tofu scramble

I think I’ve been bitten by the travel bug. Now that I’ve gone overseas for the first time, I’m just dying to get away again! France is at the top of my travel bucket list (is it sad that French food is 90% of the reason I want to go there? … don’t answer that), along with Italy and California.

I think I’ve been wanting to visit California ever since the Parent Trap remake with Lindsay Lohan came out and I fell in love with the scenery of the wine country and hiking trails. These days I follow lots of California bloggers and instagrammers who never fail to make me jealous of their amazing farmers markets, beaches, and fresh food cafes.

Breakfast tofu scramble -- vegan and gluten free

This sunny breakfast tofu scramble is inspired by California. I imagine if I lived there I would eat it while sitting in a little breakfast nook overlooking the beach with a freshly squeezed orange juice from the farmers market… instead I ate it on an unseasonably cold summer day and while staring at my computer screen. Oh well, a girl can dream!

  1. Haha I am not surprised, that seems to happen to everyone who goes on a big trip like that. Although my friends in England usually want to go to places like Thailand or mongolia after they start traveling!

    This scramble is a great idea. I need to cook with tofu again, this would be a major recovery meal packed with protein! I need that right now!

  2. Whoops I pressed “Post comment” too fast!! I’m so with you about being hit by the travel bug…I think my next trip will be in October to Thailand hopefully! This scramble sounds so delish…although to make it fully Californian, let’s add in some avocado! I have some tofu on its last leg in the fridge so I guess I know what lunch tomorrow will be..I shall keep u posted on the verdict :-)!

  3. some with me in November!!! I’m doing Nor Cal for 10 days. I totally have the travel bug. Not so much for overseas but more for North American places. I’m on a mission to tackle all the National Parks!

  4. Tofu scrambles are awesome!! It has been a long time since I have made one though :( I need to change that!

  5. bah, can you take me on your next trip? California is high up on my travel bucket list.
