Now that it’s chilly outside, you may be starting to trade your morning ice-cold smoothie for warmer breakfast foods. Oats are an obvious option, but if you’re looking for a more savory option, give this scrambled tofu recipe a try. Serve it with the suggested sides and toppings below, or bundle it up in a whole grain wrap for a more portable meal.
