- 1/2 onion (diced)
- 1/2 green bell pepper (diced)
- 1 block tofu (drained and pressed)
- 2 tablespoons oil (or margarine)
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- Optional: 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
- 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
Gather the ingredients.
First, prepare your tofu. Like most tofu recipes, tofu scramble will taste best if you press the tofu first.
Once your tofu is well pressed, slice the tofu into approximately one-inch cubes.
Then using either your hands or a fork, crumble it slightly to get the consistency you like for your scrambled tofu.
Next, heat the oil or margarine in a large skillet or frying pan and sauté the chopped onion, pepper, and crumbled tofu for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Next, add the garlic powder, onion powder, and soy sauce and reduce the heat down to medium. Allow your tofu to cook 5 to 7 more minutes, stirring frequently and adding a bit more oil if needed.
Finally, add the nutritional yeast and stir to combine well and make sure that your tofu is well coated.
To serve your tofu scramble, eat it just as it is, top it off with salsa, wrap it up in a warmed flour tortilla with a bit of salsa for a breakfast burrito, or top with soy or dairy cheese.
- Pressing the tofu is crucial, as it allows the tofu to absorb more of the flavorings and seasonings which you add to it. It's an extra step, but it just takes a few minutes.
