Plant Protein Power Breakfast Bowls

The first time I made this recipe, I ate at 7 a.m., and I wasn’t hungry again until 2.

I knew I’d made a rib-sticking, high-protein breakfast, and keeping fuller longer was kind of the idea. But I was still blown away by just how satiating these Plant Protein Power Breakfast Bowls are.

First, you scramble up the tofu with a few spices for flavor, then you heat the black beans. Top with some creamy avocado slices, juicy cherry tomatoes, a sprinkle of pepitas, and your favorite salsa. Best. Breakfast. Ever.

Though I didn’t photograph them this way, a squeeze of lime and a pinch of smoked paprika are fine additions too.

Oh, and meal-prep-wise, this one is killer. Scramble up the tofu and the beans then place together in individual containers. When it’s time to eat, just heat it up, add your toppers, and you’re full for hours.

Plant Protein Power Breakfast Bowls

With over 20 grams of protein and 12 grams of fiber per serving, this breakfast keeps me full for HOURS. Plus, it’s delicious and perfect for prepping ahead. Love this breakfast recipe!

Ingredients:

For the scrambled tofu:

  • 1 (14-ounce) block extra-firm tofu
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 medium clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

For the black beans:

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained (or 1 1/2 cups cooked black beans)
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt (optional)

Plus:

  • 1 medium avocado, halved and sliced
  • 3/4 cup  cherry tomatoes, sliced

Toppings:

  • Pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • Your favorite salsa
  • Sliced scallions
  • Lime wedge for squeezing over the top
  • Pinch smoked paprika

Directions:

  1. Have two or three serving bowls out and ready to fill.
  2. Make the scrambled tofu. Drain the tofu and set it on a large cutting board. Mash with a potato masher. Set a large skillet over medium heat. When hot, add 2 teaspoons olive oil. Add garlic, oregano, cumin, turmeric, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant – about 1 minute. Add tofu and stir well to incorporate spices and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 5 minutes. Divide scrambled tofu between bowls.
  3. Heat the beans. Return skillet to burner. Add remaining 1 teaspoon oil. Add beans, chili powder, and cumin. Cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Taste and add salt if desired. Transfer to bowls.
  4. Finish assembling bowls. Add cherry tomatoes and avocado slices. (I like to add a pinch of kosher salt to each). Top with assorted toppings and serve.

I love this as a make-ahead breakfast. I store individual portions of the tofu and black beans in the refrigerator (it keeps for about 3 days), then heat it up and top with toppings. So easy!
