Tofu Scramble Recipe
March 11, 2018 13 Comments
This tofu scramble recipe looks like scrambled eggs – but it is a totally different animal.
Going vegan continues to be a trend as we look at our calorie intake and our environmental impact. I never thought eggs were such a big deal because nothing was slaughtered to get them but some people don’t eat them.
Why? Some people can't digest eggs and some can't forget that the egg could have been a chick. Also, since eggs are the product of animals - it takes more energy to make them then a plant based food.
This time we are using curry powder and cumin to make it pop and it does POP! I add quite a lot of spices to get it to taste like something. Please feel free to make it your way (with more or less) to have it perfect.
A tofu scramble is almost as simple as an egg scramble. You crumble the tofu, heat it for about 8 minutes, and add spices. The tofu is already “cooked” so all you are doing is heating it up and releasing some of the water so it is more solid.
I think the tofu recipe is more versatile than an egg recipe. For example, would you store scrambled eggs in your fridge to reheat? - no! They just get rubbery. But, a tofu scramble can be made ahead and reheated to make a delicious breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
I plate my scramble on some fresh mixed greens for a tofu scramble salad. Sometimes I add a little olive oil for a dressing (or lemon juice).
This recipe uses extra-firm tofu, cumin, curry powder, and some optional scallions. For those Weight Watchers members out there, this is ZERO points for the whole thing. Crazy!
