Tofu Scramble

There are countless tofu scramble recipes out there…and they’re all roughly the same. Sautee some tofu with turmeric and nu yeast. Add sundry spices. Vary by adding other vegetables.

Tofu Scramble

For those in need of a recipes, allow me to muddy the scramble-y waters:

Tofu Scramble

Required!

  • 1 lb tofu, drained
  • 1 small – medium onion, diced
  • 1/3 cup nu yeast
  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • 3 sprigs fresh / 2 tsp dry rosemary
  • 3 sprigs fresh / 2 tsp dry oregano
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • cooking oil

Optional! (any or all of the following will enliven your scramble)

  • 1 small bag / 1 – 2 cups chopped spinach
  • 1/2 can black beans
  • 1 handful chives / 2 stalks green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper

In a large pan, sautee the onion (and green pepper, if using) in oil over medium. When the onions just begin to get soft, crumble in the tofu. Mix well, breaking up the large tofu bits with your spatula. Add in the spices. Cook for about 10 minutes, then add in the remaining optional ingredients, if it suits your fancy. Cook for about 5 more minutes, then reduce heat to low. Serve when the mood strikes you and/or the bagel/toast is done.
