Now on to this week’s Tempeh Scramble on Toast :) When I’m not practicing intermittent fasting (you can read more about that HERE) I usually like to start my day with something sweet (like this berry chia pudding with coconut milk) but once and a while I like to have something savory in the morning too. This tempeh scramble on toast (well, actually on almond bread) is a fantastic source of protein, very high in magnesium and really filling too. Leftovers make a great lunch or dinner, especially with extra avocado on top!

Tempeh Scramble on Toast | Gluten Free Almond Bread


  1. Melt a spoonful of coconut oil in a large frying pan. Add the diced shallot together with the spices. Fry for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the shallot turns golden.
  2. Add your shredded kale and sliced cherry tomatoes. I like to add the kale first and let that fry for a minute or so, and then add the cherry tomatoes.
  3. Add your tempeh, give it a good stir and turn off the heat.
  4. Serve on top of your favorite toast or crackers. I used almond oat bread, a recipe from my new cookbook ‘Vegan & Raw 2’. It’s gluten free, yeast free, homemade and really filling.
  5. Top with sliced avocado, chives and nigella seeds. These have a subtle onion flavor that I really love on top of the avocado but feel free to replace them with sesame or pumpkin seeds if you don’t have them at home.


  • This tempeh scramble on toast will stay fresh for at least 2 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • Feel free to get creative with the recipe! You can replace the kale with chard, collard greens, spinach… and the cherry tomatoes with a handful of sliced mushrooms, ½ red bell pepper…
  • Not a fan of avocado? You can replace it with baked sweet potato, black beans or other legumes to make these toasts extra filling.

Now I would love to hear from you! Do you like to have something savory for breakfast once and a while too? What are your favorite savory breakfasts: avocado on toast, veggie quinoa stir-fry, sweet potato hash, miso noodle soup… Let me know by leaving a comment down below.

Dear Julie,

I really love your TEMPEH SCRAMBLE ON TOAST | GLUTEN FREE ALMOND BREAD. I usually do it but I put Temph at first so I can brown it. I hope you'll try. This is what I learn when I follow a stage with a Eurasian Cook for mindfulness.

I really love your way to present you reciepes. Thank you both! I wanted to come to Gent to follow your workshop but It didn't match with my possibility. Hope you will come in Brussel/ or Belgium again.

Yours faithfully,

Hi Jessica, thank you for your comment. I love baking marinated tempeh too and serve it as vegan 'bacon' :) You're always welcome to join one of our workshops! Have a lovely weekend, Julie

Hi Sharon, the older recipes don't have the exact nutritional info since we've only recently started calculating all the macros. Newer recipes will have the nutrient content at the end of the recipe!
