Tofu Scramble - 2 Ways

tofu-scramble-2-ways.jpg

More and more people these days are choosing to live a vegan lifestyle for them and their kids. It takes a lot of commitment as vegans do not eat or use animal products of any kind (no dairy, no honey....nothing!). I'm pretty sure that Kenya and my husband would be up for it, but if that meant no eggs, it would be a no go! They love their scrambled eggs for breakfast....and sometimes lunch and dinner, too. And after all, eggs are inexpensive, packed with protein, delicious and healthy. Still, when our vegan friends come over for breakfast, I need to be able to serve something that can substitute for scrambled eggs. What else but scrambled tofu!

Tofu is a fantastic substitute for eggs for all the reasons above and the best part is that tofu has a neutral flavor, which allows it to completely take on the taste of your favorite flavors. My hubby loves a hint of curry and I'm partial to an Asian take on it, but it takes barely any effort for everyone to have it their own way.

So try it and see what you like best. Even if the vegan life doesn’t appeal to you at all, I promise you scrambled tofu will!

    I put nutritional yeast in this for taste and texture, and small amount of tumeric [for color!]-- turns out awesome everytime! :)
