I was looking for a soy-free alternative to my favourite breakfast, tofu scramble, something which was just as filling and also yummy. Although I occasionally enjoy a bowl of hot breakfast cereal, generally, I’m not a big fan of sweet breakfasts, preferring something hearty and savoury to get me going.
