Eggless Bittermelon Scramble

Eggless Bittermelon Scramble


  • 12 Tbsp olive oil 1 clove garlic (minced) 
  • ¼ of an onion (diced) 
  • 68 cherry tomatoes (cut in halves) 
  • 1 Firm Tofu (mashed – preferably organic) 
  • 1 Bittermelon (Cut in any shape – soaked in H2O and salt for an hour “drained after”) 
  • ½ tsp of garlic powder 
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder (this will make the egg-like color “yellow”) 
  • ½ stems of green onions (garnish)


  1. Heat oil on the skillet on medium high. When it’s hot and ready, add garlic. When it’s golden brown, add onions. When it’s translucent, add in cherry tomatoes. Sautée for a minute or so.
  2. Add tofu, garlic powder, turmeric and soy sauce. When the tofu is yellow, you can now add the Bittermelon. I like to add the BM last because I want it crunchy. Add it after cherry tomatoes if you want it softer. Cook for 2-3 mins. 
  3. When done, put it on a plate and garnish with green onions. Enjoy! 😀
