Cheesy Vegan Tofu Scramble


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 bell peppers (red, orange, yellow or green), sliced lengthwise
  • 1-2 jalapeños, sliced lengthwise
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 block Nasoya Extra Firm Tofu, drained & crumbled (see step 1)
  • 1/2 cup Zubi’s Queso
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Cilantro, for garnish
  • Zubi’s Crema, for drizzling


  1. Pat tofu dry and roll in a clean, absorbent towel with something heavy on top, such as a cast-iron skillet, for 15 minutes.
  2. While tofu is draining, prepare the peppers and onions.
  3. Heat up a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add olive oil and the onion and pepper slices. Season with the salt and pepper and stir. Cook until softened - about 5 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, unwrap tofu and use a fork to crumble into bite-sized pieces.
  5. Use a spatula to move the veggies to one side of the pan and add tofu. Sauté for 2 minutes, then add remaining ingredients for the sauce, pouring it mostly over the tofu and a little over the veggies. Stir immediately, evenly distributing the sauce. Cook for another 5-7 minutes until tofu is slightly browned.
  6. Serve immediately with some roasted potatoes, toast or fruit. You can also wrap it up like a burrito, see photo below! Top with fresh cilantro and a drizzle of Zubi’s Crema!
  7. Alternatively, freeze for up to 1 month and reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave.
