This easy vegan tofu scramble recipe is savory and satisfying, featuring red bell pepper, onion, dill and a touch of Dijon mustard.


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 medium onion (any kind)
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper
  • 1/2 pound firm tofu
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • sea salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Prep: Warm the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Dice the onion and red pepper.
  2. Cook: Once the oil is shimmering, add the onion and cook until it's edges just start to brown. Add the red pepper and cook for a minute or two more. While the red pepper is cooking, rinse the tofu under cold water and then use your hands to press it together to squeeze any extra water out of it. Use your fingers to crumble little pieces of tofu right into the skillet, stir, and cook for a couple minutes.
  3. Season: Add the Dijon, dill and some salt and pepper to the skillet, and then adjust the seasonings to taste if necessary.
  4. Enjoy: Divide between plates and serve immediately. Enjoy!
