Soy-free, Egg-free Breakfast Scramble

Soy-free, Egg-free Breakfast Scramble

soy-free, egg free scramble



A protein packed alternative to eggs and soy for a hearty breakfast or weekend brunch.

We’ve been playing with hemp hearts a lot lately, they are a versatile and protein-packed health food that is often over looked. They have a lot of misconceptions and myths about them, that people don’t understand what a great health food they are. 

Regardless, they turn into a beautiful, not-egg, soy-free scramble. In fact, my chef husband (cookin’ it easy blog) made a tofu scramble to match my soy free scramble and mine turned out closer in texture and  flavour to the egg replacement we were going for. Win!

Obviously, everyone has their favourite scrambled egg toppings, so have fun with this. You can sample the soy-free, egg-free scramble base once it’s cool enough and start pairing in your head. You won’t need to add extra vegan cheese to it, if you don’t want, it’s salty and cheesy enough. I think of mushrooms, jalepenos, peppers, onions, tomatoes, vegan meats or meat if you aren’t vegan, spinach, kale, swiss chard. This soy free scramble has lots of flavour, so don’t be afraid to add ingredients that have a punch to them, the spinach I added almost was eclipsed by the scramble itself!

Our roast garlic came from this recipe. We used some of the oil the garlic was roasted in to add to our flavours. We added turmeric and smoked salt to our soy-free, egg-free base. It gives it a savoury punch that reminded us of a strong cheddar cheese. If you don’t have smoked salt, 1/2 tsp of liquid smoke and sea salt would work.



  • Each serving (3 tablespoons) is packed with 10 grams of plant-based protein.
  • healthy fats, 12 grams of omegas 3 and 6 per serving.
  • light, nutty flavor complements almost any dish.
  • a soy-free alternative protein for vegetarians, vegans and health seekers – hemp hearts contain all 10 essential amino acids
