Tofu Scramble Brunch Ring

Tofu scrambles are tasty, but they aren’t the prettiest dish for a party. Here, crescent roll dough turns the breakfast fave into a sliceable showstopper.



Ingredient Line: 
¼ cup nutritional yeast
Ingredient Line: 
1 16-oz. pkg. extra-firm tofu, drained and crumbled
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. plus 2 tsp. prepared mustard
Ingredient Line: 
½ tsp. ground turmeric
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup chopped onion
Ingredient Line: 
4 cloves garlic, minced (4 tsp.)
Ingredient Line: 
2 cups frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup shredded vegan Cheddar cheese, optional
Ingredient Line: 
2 8-oz. cans refrigerated vegan crescent dinner rolls, such as Pillsbury


1. Stir together tofu, nutritional yeast, mustard, and turmeric in bowl. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Set aside.

2. Coat skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Add onion, cover, and cook 3 minutes, or until softened. Add garlic, and cook 1 minute more. Stir onion-garlic mixture into tofu; fold in broccoli and cheese, if using. Cool.

3. Coat large baking sheet with cooking spray. Unroll both cans of dough, and separate into triangles. Arrange triangles on prepared baking sheet with short sides of triangles toward center and points facing out, making sun shape of overlapping triangles with 4-inch round opening in center. Lightly press dough to flatten slightly.

4. Spoon tofu mixture around crescent roll ring, leaving center clear. Pull points of triangles over filling and tuck under to form ring. (Filling will be visible.) Cover, and chill overnight, if desired.

5. Preheat oven to 375°F. Bake Brunch Ring 25 to 30 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. Serve warm.

Comments on this Recipe

Immaculate Baking Company crescent rolls are not vegan.

Buy the low fat Pillsbury crescent rolls they dont have trans fat, or at least not enough to list on the label.

All of the refrigerated crescent dinner rolls at my grocery store contain trans fat, including Pillsbury. Do they sell something similar at Whole Foods?

I think that this dish is great in moderation. I work between 8 & 9 hours a day and i take this for lunch, its filling, satisfying, yummy, and gives me great energy to finish out the day!

Yes. Immaculate Baking Company makes crescent rolls without trans fat. I got them at Whole Foods.

I make this every couple months for brunch and it's a huge hit. I often substitute fresh or frozen spinach for the broccoli if I don't have any on hand.

my first recipe I tried from the magazine and it was great! Was gone the same day it was made and made both with my own dough and with Pillsbury with added variations i.e. shredded vegan cheese, tomatoes, bell peppers. It's a win win recipe.
