When I first tried scrambled tofu, I was skeptical. But after I fooled many who thought this recipe was made with eggs, I realized what a perfect breakfast this is for vegetarians or vegans. The turmeric gives the eggs a yellowish hue that resembles eggs and the nutritional yeast adds a cheesy flavour that has no dairy.
