Easy Tofu Scramble (Vegan Scrambled "Eggs") Recipe
1 block extra firm tofu
1-2 TBSP Turmeric (for yellow color)
2 TBSP Nutritional yeast (Optional. Adds a cheesy flavor)
Black pepper to taste
Black Salt to taste (adds an eggy flavor). If you don't have this, just add regular table salt.
(You can also add any vegetables you would like to this dish, such as spinach, onions, mushrooms, peppers, ETC.)
Spray a nonstick pan with cooking spray. Press the tofu between paper towels until most of the moisture has been removed. Crumble the tofu into the pan by simply squishing it through your fingers. This gives it a closer look and shape to scrambled eggs. Add the turmeric, nutritional yeast, pepper and salt. Cover with a lid and cook on medium heat for about 3-5 minutes, or until the tofu softens a bit. Stir occasionally until the yellow color is even throughout the rest of the tofu. Serve immediately and enjoy.
* This scramble goes great with toast, hash browns, tempeh "bacon," or in breakfast burritos! :)
