Tofu Scramble
Category Tofu recipes
Servings 2
Time 15 - 20 minutes
Difficulty Easy

Ingredients[edit]

  • 1/3 block tofu, soft, drained 15 minutes
  • 1/2 small onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 sun dried tomato slice, diced, (usually come in packages sliced)
  • Spinach, flat leaf, a small handful
  • Red pepper
  • Turmeric or curry (for a spicier dish)
  • Flavored salt (optional)
  • Olive or vegetable oil (or veggie butter)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Flour tortillas, or vegan bread (1-3, optional)

Procedure[edit]

  1. Add about 1-2 tablespoon (15-30g) oil to sauce pan. Add onion, garlic and sun dried tomato to pan, cook until soft and golden.
  2. While that is cooking, mash tofu (I use my fingers) until they get an even scrambled texture and add spices. I never measure, so use your own judgment on the spices.
  3. I usually add 2 dashes red pepper, two dashes turmeric, salt the top of my mound twice and pepper it once, and add a pinch of flavored salt. Then mix it all in until evenly distributed.
  4. When onion mix is cooked, add tofu and spinach. Heat through (until spinach is soft and wilted looking)

I like it in a flour tortilla, like a breakfast burrito, or in vegan bread, like a breakfast sandwich, but eat as you like. I think it really tastes a lot like eggs.

Enjoy!

Alternate Version[edit]

Ingredients[edit]

  • 1 green onion
  • 2 small cloves garlic
  • 2 strips Smart bacon or other breakfast meat substitute
  • 1/2 large block of firm tofu
  • Couple dashes of turmeric
  • Splash of liquid aminos
  • Pinch of nutritional yeast flakes
  • Oil (for the pan)

Procedure[edit]

  1. First, you've got to heat up the pan on medium- high heat with the oil to cook the bacon. But don't cook it too long or it will be overcooked once you're done.
  2. While you're cooking the bacon, start chopping up the garlic and green onion.
  3. Press as much water from the tofu as possible, then use a cheese grater to grate the tofu into semi-small chunks. You could probably mash it a bit with a fork instead, but I find grating to be a lot quicker.
  4. After you have the tofu grated into a bowl, add the onion, garlic, bacon (cooked and cut into small pieces by this time), the turmeric and liquid aminos. You'll want to stir this up gently until you are satisfied that everything is well mixed.
  5. Put it in the pan (it should sizzle a bit) and sprinkle the nutritional yeast flakes over the top.
  6. Keep stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes or until you've got the desired look of scrambled "eggs."

I like to eat this with some hash browns, of course. This is very very tasty, if i do say so myself. Oh, and be careful with the turmeric. it stains everything yellow...
