Rise and shine. If you’ve got the “rise” part down, but you’re still working on that shine, starting your day with this protein-packed tofu scramble might do the trick. Did you know that tofu contains all nine essential amino acids? It also provides iron, calcium, and trace minerals, making it an excellent fuel source for powering through those early morning classes.

Never tried tofu before? No worries—this recipe is basically foolproof and a great introduction to this plant-based staple. Tofu takes on the flavor of whatever it’s cooked with, so round up your favorite spices and don’t be shy! If you’ve got time to spare, you can even add some diced veggies to really make this scramble shine.
