easy tofu scramble with spinach

Spinach Tofu Scramble

I absolutely love tofu scramble, especially after my workouts. Tofu is high in protein and contains all the essential amino acids your body needs. It also provides fats, carbs, and a wide variety of vitamins and minerals. So yes it’s the perfect after workout fuel. 

I make my scramble without oil but that is just a preference so instead of cooking it in vegetable broth, you can just swap for oil instead. 

easy tofu scramble with spinach
  • 1 package firm tofu (14 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup low sodium veggie broth (I use homemade veggie scrap broth)
  • 1 cup chopped spinach or kale 
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • Hot sauce to taste (optional)
  • A handful of cherry tomatoes, cut in half


  1. Drain your tofu and wrap in in a kitchen towel to remove some of the liquid. Use your hands to crumble the tofu. 
  2. Add 1/2 cup veggie broth to a large skillet and set to medium-high heat.  
  3. Add garlic and spinach and sauté until greens have wilted. 
  4. Add tofu to heated skillet and mix with greens.
  5. Cook  for another 7 to 10 minutes.  
  6. Once almost all the liquid has been absorbed add the nutritional yeast and hot sauce if using.  
  7. The scramble is ready when they just start to stick to the pan and there’s no liquid remaining.  
  8. Add tomatoes and serve.
