This spicy tofu scramble with roasted veggies is easy to make; incredibly filling, while still being light; full of goodness; and is a deliciously complete meal for brunch or supper.

Until a couple of years ago, I’d never tried tofu scramble – not because I thought it would be in any way difficult to make but because I have an aversion to ‘eggy’ things. I’ve been this way ever since I was small: I actually vomited over my gran once when she tried to make me eat a boiled egg.

I’m not proud of that.

Even now, the smell of cooked eggs makes my tummy churn.

I know loads of vegans who really miss omelettes, boiled eggs, etc., and do their best to replicate the dishes they loved, adding ingredients such as the sulphurous kala namak (black salt) to them to get that whiffy, eggy taste.

I am not one of them.

One day, I just bucked my ideas up, and made a tofu scramble  – more out of curiosity than anything else, really. I loved it! We now eat it on a regular basis, especially for brunch or supper.

And despite appearances, it’s not remotely eggy.

It’s super easy to make, and pretty versatile with regard to the veggies you can use. My favourite combo is savoy and red cabbage… and not just because they are both so pretty! I just love cabbage. Which is just as well because here in The Balkans, cabbages are ubiquitous.

In addition to the other veggies – in this case, sweet potatoes and onions, I add unpeeled garlic cloves to the roasting tin because really, what’s life without roasted garlic? And I use my own garam masala spice blend too.

If we’re particularly hungry, I’ll also chop up a couple of my vegan sausages, and throw those in too. Phew!

Gosh, my tummy is rumbling, just writing this post!
