Easy Tofu Scramble

IMG_4074.JPG

For someone who is a bit skeptical about tofu after having a bad 'slimy tofu' experience one time, I'm suprised by how much I love making (and eating) tofu scramble! It's so easy to make, so simple and so delicious, and it has quickly become my go-to if I have a bit of time in the morning. I know everyone is a little wary of tofu recipes but this one will honestly change your mind on tofu forever. Only taking around 15 minutes to make, its the perfect easy weekend breakfast or lunch! Use your favourite veggies, your favorite type of bread and you're sorted! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! 

TIP: Try to get a block of firm tofu, with minimal liquid as it will make it easier to fry and provide a better scrambled texture. However if your tofu isn't as firm as you would like or you think it has a lot of excess liquid then simply wrap it in a thin cloth and place under a heavy pot or skillet for an hour or two until all the excess liquid is drained out, then continue with step one.

(serves one)

1 block firm tofu

a handful of mushrooms

1/2 small red onion

2 cloves garlic 

1 tsp tumeric 

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp garlic powder

vegan butter

a handful of spinach

salt and pepper 

sourdough bread / a bagel

 

Drain your block of tofu by covering in a thin cloth and squeezing out the moisture

Finely chop the onion and garlic and fry in a pan with a little bit of water

Once softened, add the mushrooms and cook until soft

Move the veggies over to one side of the pan and in the other side crumble the tofu so it resembles the consistency of scrambled egg

Add turmeric, onion & garlic powder and salt & pepper and fry the tofu for around 5-8 minutes, making sure it doesn’t burn 

6. At the last minute, add the spinach and cook for a few minutes

7. Combine the tofu and veggies and plate on bagel or a slice of sourdough bread and serve!
