Summer Tofu Scramble w/ Roasted Potatoes

Whenever I order tofu scrambles at vegan brunch restaurants (yes, these exist) I’m usually either very disappointed or completely blown away. This recipe is inspired by the latter experience. I absolutely adoooooore this breakfast. This delicious tofu scramble is perfect in the summertime, featuring roasted sweet corn and cherry tomatoes, yummy potatoes, and my favorite ever Chipotle Lime Sauce and a bit of cilantro to tie it all together.
