Scrambled eggs are a staple at my house, but every once in a while I’m ready to mix things up, particularly when I have vegan friends staying over. Tofu is a great alternative and makes for a yummy scramble.
My favorite part is that this dish is so versatile. You can serve it on toasted bread, a bagel, a tortilla or even some toasted french bread. Vary the spices, top it with some fresh herbs or cook it along with your favorite veggies (onions and mushrooms would be yummy). Add a few tomatoes for color and you have a breakfast dish that’s sure to impress and fill you up.
- 5 oz firm tofu
- Pinch of turmeric
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- Salt and pepper
- Drain the tofu and mash it with a fork until smooth. In a frying pan, heat the vegetable oil and add the tofu. Season with salt, pepper and turmeric and – stirring constantly - fry until hot and lightly brown.
- Serve immediately on toast together with fried tomatoes.
