Vegan scrambled eggs that actually scramble thanks to a secret ingredient: aquafaba (aka chickpea brine). These vegan scrambled eggs are made with a combination of firm tofu, aquafaba, olive oil, nutritional yeast, kala namak (for an egg-like sulfuric taste), ground turmeric (for color), and freshly ground black pepper. All ingredients get blended until smooth and then scrambled in a skillet just like traditional scrambled eggs. Serve them alongside avocado toast and orange slices for the perfect vegan brunch!
*Make sure you use firm tofu—extra-firm tofu does not work as well as it yields a slightly spongier texture.
**Aquafaba is the canning liquid from chickpeas. To collect it, place a colander over a spouted mixing bowl and pour the contents of a 14-ounce can of chickpeas into it, separating the canning liquid from the chickpeas. Measure off 1/2 cup of the canning liquid and reserve the chickpeas for another use.
***Be careful not to confuse this with "black lava salt" as it is not the same and does not have the same "eggy" flavor needed for this recipe.
