Vegan Breakfast Scramble {12 Days of Christmas Day 11}

Welcome to Gluten Free Monday and Day 11 of the 12 Days of Christmas!

Today, I’m excited to introduce Rachael, from Determined Darling.  Rachael always has great gluten-free recipes to share, and I’m so happy to have her here on!

I’m Rachael from Determined Darling, saving the earth one veggie at a time! I strive to live a life that is healthy, green, and fun! Most of the time you’ll find me in my kitchen cooking yummy gluten-free, vegan recipes with fresh, organic, local ingredients. If I’m not there then you’ll find me outside running, in my garden, thrifting, or curled up on my couch with my pup and Mr. Darling. I am determined to prove that cooking fresh, vegan, gluten-free food can be fun, delicious and good for the earth!

I am so grateful to be part of’s 12 Days of Christmas along with all the other darling bloggers that have joined this fun event.  I am extra excited to be part of Gluten Free Monday one of my favorite link parties!  Today I am sharing my Christmas Vegan Scramble.

One of my favorite things about Christmas is having Christmas breakfast with my Dad. It’s a tradition I still cherish today. This year I thought I would whip up a yummy vegan tofu scramble.

Perfectly seasoned tofu with lots of veggies makes the perfect Christmas breakfast and gives you energy for a long Christmas day.

  • 1 large bunch kale chopped1.5 cups peas
  • 1 cup roasted tomatoes (This is easy to do at home. I’ll be posting how on DD next week.)

  6. So how much of the peas do we add?

    • I’m sorry, Justin. This was a guest post from a few years ago. It looks like she left the peas off of the ingredients list. You may just have to guess from looking at the picture. Sorry.

Comments make me happy!
