Vegan Menemen recipe

Vegan Menemen recipeThis vegan menemen Turkish-style recipe is a delicious 15-mins scramble for breakfast that’s so tasty! The best part is that it’s an easy and nutritious vegan breakfast that isn’t oatmeal or a smoothie.

I adapted the recipe from Ozlem’s Turkish Table and made it vegan to make it more accessible for those who eat plant-based. For a breakfast that is ready in just 15 minutes, this one is a keeper.

    I have Turkish brother in laws, and I thought his would be a great recipe! My question is about 1 1/2 medium tofu. Do you mean blocks of tofu?

    Looking forward to trying the recipe,
