This recipe is an oldie but a goodie.
If I had to recommend one dish for someone who wants to eat less animal products it would be scrambled tofu. It looks just like eggs and you can really flavor it however you like. Not to mention it only takes about 10 minutes from start to finish.
I started eating less scrambled eggs and more scrambled tofu after watching Vegucated on Netflix. I won’t go into personal ethics on why I made the switch but it’s a good documentary to watch on Netflix in between marathons of Being Human and United States of Tara.
You can easily change this recipe to make it more flavorful by adding herbs and sautéed vegetables into the mix. I usually use curry powder to make mine a little spicy.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Ingredients(Makes 2 servings):
- 1 block extra firm tofu
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- In a large bowl, mash the tofu with a fork lightly until it’s textured to resemble scrambled eggs.
- Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat.
- Mix the turmeric, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder in with the tofu until it’s evenly coated.
- Sauté the tofu in the oil until it’s heated through and takes on a vibrant color.
- Remove from the pan and serve hot.
Afterwards I put a big pile of ketchup on the side of the plate. What’re eggs and hash browns without ketchup?
