Tofu Scramble & Breakfast Sweet Potatoes (Make Ahead)

This tofu scramble and breakfast sweet potatoes is a healthy, make-ahead breakfast bowl recipe that will actually keep you full!

I knew it had been awhile since I shared a make ahead breakfast recipe with you all, and when I went to check it was even longer than I had thought.

Not since these healthy breakfast burritos with zucchini & lentils waaay back in March!

Much as I’d like to tell you all that I’ve mastered breakfast by using the delicious make-ahead breakfast recipes that I’ve shared before, but sadly, breakfast is still a challenge for me.

So to liven my routine up and try something new, I created these healthy breakfast bowls filled with a veggie-laden tofu scramble and savory breakfast sweet potatoes.  And: YUM!

Tofu is definitely NOT on my list of food loves.  I don’t know.  Any tofu recipes I’ve tried in the past ended up flavorless, and the tofu had a rubbery, not so tasty texture.

That’s why I was pleasantly surprised by this tofu scramble.  The tofu is broken up into small, manageable chunks that are *kind* of similar to eggs in texture.  I added plenty of veggies and spices that liven up the flavor.

And I’ve finally found a tofu recipe that I love!  It has plenty of flavor, a great texture, and served with these breakfast sweet potatoes and a dollop of Greek yogurt (or even better: avocado and cherry tomatoes), and you have yourself a healthy, delicious breakfast bowl that is actually going to keep you full!

I’m just going to be honest with you guys: the HIGHLIGHT of these breakfast bowls is the sweet potatoes.  They are sweet, savory, so creamy and the perfect compliment to the tofu scramble.  No skipping them, OK?

It is SO nice to have one less thing to worry about in the morning.  Just pull out your breakfast bowl, re-heat it in the microwave, and top with something creamy.  Suggestions: Greek yogurt, avocado, or some cherry tomatoes.

So you can focus on more important things.  Like coffee!
