Tempeh Scramble Grit Bowl

  • 1/2 cup yellow grits
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 small bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 small zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 2-3 mushrooms, sliced
  • Half extra firm tofu block, drained & crumbled
  • 1 tsp paprika

  • 2 Tbs nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbs soy sauce
  • 1/2 Tbs tahini
  • 1 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • Olive oil


  1. To prepare the tofu, crumble half a block into a bowl
  2. Add in the soy sauce, tahini, mustard, paprika, chili powder, pepper, and garlic powder, and mix with a fork. Set aside.
  3. Then, prepare your vegetable hash.
  4. In a medium stovetop pot, add the 2 cups of water and bring to a boil, lightly seasoning with salt.
  5. Once boiling, add in the grits and stir. Quickly set the heat to low and cover with a lid.
  6. Stir the grits occasionally until cooked, about 10-15 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, add about 1 Tbs of olive oil on medium-high heat.
  8. Sauté the onion for 2-3 minutes, then add the bell pepper and zucchini, cooking for 5 minutes.
  9. Add in the mushrooms and cook on medium until the vegetables are softened and tender. Season with a dash of the same seasonings used on the tofu, including a dash of salt.
  10. Simultaneously, add a dash of olive oil to a smaller skillet on medium heat.
  11. Add the tofu to the pan once hot and allow the tofu to cook for 5-7 minutes, flipping with a spatula and repeating until each side is lightly browned and slightly crisp.
  12. Transfer the tofu to the vegetables once both are cooked.
  13. Serve the vegetables and tofu over the grits, top with chopped scallions and hot sauce if desired, and enjoy!
