Tofu is an ancient food originating in China.
Scrambled Tofu is another plant-based breakfast staple. With a little practice you’ll be putting the traditional egg breakfast to shame. It’s versatility and quick preparation make it perfect as a regular morning meal.
Scrambled tofu may take a little practice to get right, but it’s worth the practice!
Don’t be afraid to experiment with the preparation method – be creative!
Use the best quality firm tofu you can afford.
Many scrambled tofu recipes call for the tofu to be pressed before cooking, to release excess water. We have found this to be unnecessary for making delicious tofu and suggest you try it without pressing first, but if you would like an even drier and firmer texture to your tofu, place your block of tofu between some paper towels, or wrap in a clean cloth. Then place a heavy weight on top, such as a heavy pot or a few books. Leave for half an hour.
Of course, the downside to pressing is the time required!
To see what you’re having with your D.I.Y Scrambled Tofu, check the meal plan:
- 200g (1 Cup minus 2 tbsp, 7 oz) Firm Tofu
- Chopped Vegetables of choice or ingredients listed in Meal Pan
- 1 tsp light Miso Paste
- 1 tsp Cumin, ground
- 1/2 tsp Turmeric, ground
- Salt & Pepper to taste
The spices and seasoning recommended here are for our basic scrambled tofu recipe. Feel free to experiment with different spices and herbs!
Place your Chopped Vegetables in a large pan or wok, add 2-3 tablespoons of water and the Miso Paste and cook on a medium heat for a few minutes until the vegetables absorb the water, stirring often.
Add 1 tbsp of water, 1 tsp of ground Cumin and 1/2 tsp ground Turmeric, stir in to vegetables for 1 minute.
Crumble the Tofu into the pan. Mix with the other ingredients. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring continuously. Add another tbsp of water if the mixture is too dry.
When the Tofu is cooked through, serve on a plate with any garnish, season to taste.
