Scrambled eggs, that famous Sunday breakfast with which many Colombians delight. Personally I was never fond of eggs, as a little girl I was always forced to eat them, but when I saw this recipe I found it interesting to try a vegan version not only scrambled eggs but of the famous “Calentao”. I confess it’s not my favorite breakfast but we wanted to share it because many might wonder “if I go vegan, what would I have for breakfast ? I love eggs”. The truth is that this should not be a concern, there are many things even better than those involving animals :)

4. Once the onion is cooked add the mixture to the pan and cook on low heat. The tofu should be taking more color as you add turmeric.
