(SPOILER: non-vegan explicit thoughts contained in this post, scroll down if you just came for the best easy tofu scramble recipe!)
One day I will have my own homestead, where I can raise happy chickens. They will be able to roam around my farm, eating the grubs and insects from my crops, and I will probably use their eggs. I disagree with factory farming practices, I never crave the taste of meat or think that it is missing from my diet. But I will utilize the symbiotic-like relationship that can exist, and never have to send my animals to slaughter.
Until then, I love my tofu scrambles! (*Note: I only buy tofu made from organic, non-gmo soybeans. Why you should do this is explained really well here.) The combination of tofu and nutritional yeast (check this post out for great information about nutritional yeast) delivers over 12 grams of protein, B-vitamins, and folic acid. This scramble is as satisfying as scrambled eggs and will give you energy to start your day!
Tofu Scramble (makes one serving)
- 1/3 of a block of organic tofu
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1-2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- salt and pepper
Press tofu between a cloth or paper towel to remove excess liquid. It’s okay if the tofu breaks apart when you apply pressure here since we will be scrambling the tofu next. Add remaining ingredients and mix together well with a fork.
Heat one teaspoon of oil in a small skillet over medium heat (I melt coconut oil). Add the seasoned tofu and cook for 8-10 minutes flipping occasionally so that all sides get browned.
I had this scramble with a side of my marinated tempeh bacon.
