Scrambled Tofu

I LOVE scrambled tofu. It is easy to make, delicious and good for you. You can mix it up with whatever veggies you have on hand. I made mine today with red onions and cremini mushrooms.

My recipe was inspired by this recipe at Vegan Dad

Here is my recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tb oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped (any variety) - optional
  • other veggies (mushrooms, spinach, carrots etc) - optional
  • 1 pkg firm tofu (14-16 oz)
  • 1 tsp onion powder (optional if you are adding chopped onion)
  • 1 Tb dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • black pepper to taste, preferable freshly ground
  • 1-2 Tb nutritional yeast
Place the tofu on a plate and place another plate on top. Put some cans on top of the top plate to add weight. This will help press out excess water from the tofu. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the onion and saute til softened. Add other veggies and saute til cooked. Drain the tofu and crumble it with your fingers into the skillet. Add the the rest of the ingredients and saute for about 8-10 minutes on medium heat until the mixture is fragrant and most of the water has evaporated from the tofu. This reheats beautifully and is also a good wrap, pita or sandwich filler.
