Easy Tofu Scramble Recipe

Here is a super easy vegan scrambled tofu recipe - it's sort of my basic tofu scramble recipe that I then change up to create different vegan scrambles.



What you need:


1 block firm tofu (drained well)
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons Bragg’s, tamari or soy sauce
½ Tablespoon chopped onion
½ teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon fresh minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste

Optional:
2 Tablespoons vegan bacon bits
Chopped green onion


What you do:

Combine vegetable oil, Bragg’s (or tamari, or soy sauce), turmeric, onion and garlic in a skillet and heat on medium, while cutting the tofu into small pieces. Lower the temp of the burner a bit and add the tofu to the mixture in the skillet. As the tofu cooks, mash it up and make sure that the tofu and seasoning mixture are mixed well.

If you want to include vegan bacon bits, they can be added as a topping after or folded into the mix towards the end of cooking. Cooking them in the scrambled tofu for a few minutes will soften them, which I like better.


Notes:


I use a potato masher to mash the tofu into a more scrambled egg-like texture.
Topping the scrambled tofu with green onion adds a crisp, fresh flavor.

This is a very simple tofu scramble recipe that is quick and de-lish. I generally serve this with GimmeLean sausage or tempeh bacon and toast.
