This Southwestern Tofu Scramble is so tasty, you won’t believe it’s tofu!

Whether you’re a vegetarian, a flexitarian, a pescetarian, an omnivore, or even a raw- or nude-foodist—you’ve probably been harboring at least a spark of curiosity about going vegan. Foodies the world over: World Vegan Day is the perfect excuse to step up to bat!

Created in 1994 by the Vegan Society, this culinary celebration kicks off the start of World Vegan Month. In celebration, VT invites you to join veg-heads across the globe in a 24-hour boycott of all animal ingredients. If you’re really up for a challenge, give it a go for thirty days!
